Tell internal Affairs To Suspend or Fire Officer Carolynne Dona
Petition Background (Preamble):
Well, to my disbelief, I was approached by Camden Police Officer Carolynne Dona while standing in front of a store looking at shoes. I was just about to enter the store to purchase a pair of shoes for my daughter for her prom, when Officer Dona approached me and asked me if I had ID. I asked why and then she pointed to yellow caution tape at the start of the side walk and said the sidewalk was closed. HOWEVER, the store was OPEN for business.
She then gave me a citation for obstructing the sidewalk, which is RIDICULOUS! The workers were WAY far away from where I was standing and I came to the store from the OTHER side of the road, where there were NO signs or caution tape.
I was EXTREMLY offended and told the African American officer that she was CLEARLY prejudiced against me for being white because there were NUMEROUS African Americans walking down the sidewalk and she singled ME out, but not them. I also ripped the ridiculous ticket in half when she handed it to me.
So, apparently after I left, she then wrote ANOTHER ticket for innapropriate behavior. I FULLY intend to fight this and involve the Media, Freeholders, Governor, Attorney General, Internal Affairs, ect.
That's what are taxes are paying for in Camden. With police like that, is it any WONDER why Camden is bad and full of murders and drugs?
I fully intend to sue the City of Camden and donate any financial compensation won to the New Jersey Victim Resource Center. They help advocate for victims of crime. I want to support this organization because they actually HELP protect crime victims, since the Camden Police CLEARLY do NOT care about the SERIOUS crime in Camden, and they would rather have their officers write FRIVILOUS citations.
Please sign the petition to Internal Affairs, asking them to suspend or fire Officer Carolynne Dona for misconduct, abuse of power, discrimination and failing to protect the residents by doing her job by bringing CRIMINALS to justice, NOT struggling, law abiding single mothers who are simply shopping for their children.
This petition is for New Jersey residents ONLY, who either live in the City of Camden, have a friend or family member living in the City of Camden, anyone visiting Camden for ANY reason, or who have had Camden Police discriminate agaist them or someone they know, or who has had the Camden Police fail them for ANY reason!
We are requesting that Internal Affairs in the Camden Police Department take action against Officer Carolynne Dona for her misconduct, abuse of power, harassment, and discrimination, and frivilous issuing of citations to a struggling, law abiding single mother who was simply shopping for her child.
