Justice for Renisha

I believe that a person who shoots another person in the head should be, at the very least, arrested.

I am sickened, heartbroken, enraged, and just plain tired of the violence done to people of colour and to women in this country.

I want to live in a country where a person can ask a neighbour or a passer-by for help without fear of being shot in the head.

So I demand justice for Renisha McBride, the young Black woman who was shot in the head last week when she knocked on a door in the middle of the night, asking for help after she was in a car accident, and I know you do too.

A young woman of colour is dead, and we know who shot her. He has not  been arrested, and the police appear to be taking their sweet time in reviewing the case. Once again, we are sickened, heartbroken, enraged.

You can sign the petition calling on the Detroit Police Chief and the Wayne County Prosecutor to launch a full investigation into Renisha’s death here.
