Petition:

I would like Everyone To take notice and take action against Police officials who shoot and kill Unarmed Citizens in our communities and in every state. It has been too many inhumane Unjust shootings of human beings from the hands of police officials who are sworn to uphold a High moral code of conduct and who have sworn to protect and serve the people who make up the community.

If a Police official or any government law agency kills an unarmed human being intentionally or By accident that police official should have to face criminal felony murder charges. The law I propose will come with a mandatory automatic 20 years to life sentence, 20 years being the minimum. If a police official uses excessive force of an unarmed person and causes permanent physical injury( ie) brain damage, paralysis or any other type of injury that would be considered attempted murder if the victim doesn't die.

We have to take action and protect out families from this type of unacceptable behavior and way of thinking. Thank you for your time and signature...
