Thank you for firing the officers who killed George Floyd. That is the very least that can be done. I live in Minneapolis where Floyd, an unarmed black man, was murdered two nights ago. The community demands justice and would like to know what is next. 

 

How are you going to hold these men accountable? When will they be prosecuted?

 

How are you going to make sure this does not happen in our city again?

Greetings, 

 

George Floyd was unarmed, handcuffed and murdered by the Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) for alleged forgery. 

 

The four officers involved have been terminated but not it's time for them to be arrested and charged. 

 

MPD exercised the abusive, excessive and inhumane use of force against a man accused of a nonviolent crime. 

 

This type of behavior is completely inexcusable, and these individuals need to be arrested and charged for their heinous crime. Police officers are not above the law, they need to be held responsible for their actions and lack thereof. The world is watching, and I urge you to do the right thing. Setting precedence is long overdue. Allowing these officers to go unpunished, arrested or charged can no longer happen. 

 

Not only does this city need you to hold your officers accountable for their actions, but reform needs to happen, and it needs to happen NOW. How many more "while black" crimes need to happen before MPD changes their ways? I am demanding reform, justice, and I demand it swiftly. 

 

I need you to read and hear that Black citizens matter, black lives matter, black children matter and I need you to believe it. If you choose to be passive in this situation, you are telling the entire world otherwise. That seems like a heavy load to put out there. I am urging you to make a change, and make it now. 

 

With deep concern and urgency, 

 

Citizen of Minneapolis

Greetings,

 

I'm contacting you as a citizen of Minneapolis, a taxpayer oand a human being extremely concerned with the stateof affairs regarding the murder of Geroge Floyd by your police officers, named Derek Chauvin Badge #1087 and MPD officer Tou Thao Badge #7162. To the furthest of my knowledge, these officers have been terminated. Termination is the least that can be done. 

 

Are they going to be held accountable for the actions that led to George Floyd's death in their custody? When will they be arrested and charged? I am frustrated, appalled and concerned for the safety of my community and the justice that is beyond due. 

 

I want to know when will these officers be charged with murder? I want to know how you're going to keep our black and brown citizens of this city safe? What does reform look like to you? 

 

I want to know how these former employees will be charged and held accountable for their actions?

 

I want to know how you envision your theory to protect and serve your community, not just your white community, but your community of black and brown citizens. 

 

George Floyd was a human being, and his life was taken by officers employed by this city. This is completely unacceptable, I am outraged and I am demanding change. 

 

With deep concern and little patience, 

 

Citizen of Minneapolis

George Floyd was unarmed. He was handcuffed and murdered by the Minneapolis police. 

 

It is my understanding that the officers involved have been terminated. That is the very least that could be done. It is time for them to be arrested and charged with manslaughter. 

 

The world is watching. Represent the citizens of this city and show the world that Minneapolis WILL NOT STAND for this inexcusable and inhumane behavior. We are frustrated, appalled, and heart broken. 

 

We demand that you do the right thing. We demand that you set long overdue precedence. We demand justice for George Floyd. 

 

With deep concern and little patience,

 

Citizen of Minneapolis

Mr. Freeman, 

 

I am writing to urge you to order the arrest of all officers complicit in the death of George Floyd. The officers acted outside of their responsibilities as police officers and used undue force in their arrest of Mr. Floyd. Which caused his death. 

 

This is a huge problem in our community. ALL people deserve to feel safe. Nobody should have to fear that their lives will be taken by the people who are supposed to protect them. 

 

I would also love to know what you are doing to prevent future incidents like this from happening. What new training will be required of officers? What new policies will be put in place? The arrest of these officers will be a start, but it won’t be enough. This is a systematic problem that demands a systematic solution. 

 

Please, please take action.

My name is (FULL NAME), and I am a citizen of (CITY). I am calling to demand that murder charges be filed against Derek Chauvin #1087 and Tou Thao #7162 as well as any additional officers at the scene for the murder of Georger Floyd. I am also demanding that there be no grand jury barrier before charges are filed. And that loud support and action should be behind legislation to abolish paid leave for violence committed against citizens as well as barriers for hiring/firing offenses be put in place for officers with a history of violence against citizens as evidence of likely escalation of violence.

 

As a citizen of the Twin Cities and the state of Minnesota, these murders have a chilling effect on the entire population. I and many others do not feel safe calling the police under any circumstance for fear of the violence they will commit. I refuse to be a catalyst of someone's murder.

 

To reach me with your response you can call me back at (PHONE NUMBER).
