Petition: Drop the charges against Jewu Richardson ›

Jewu Richardson is a friend of mine here in New Haven, CT who, in short, was harassed, beaten, and falsely arrested by the NHPD several times over a decade, culminating in him being shot by a police officer in the chest in 2010. He is now being charged with assaulting a police officer for being shot by that officer.

We are demanding that these charges be dropped. Not only was he nearly killed, but the car he was in during the shooting (the entire crime scene & evidence) was destroyed by the NHPD to cover their tracks.

Please sign this and pass it on.Help Jewu set the precedent that Black men are not expendable and deserve better than to be locked in cages.
