An open letter to State Governors & Legislatures

Justice for Elijah McClain

116 so far! Let’s get to 250 signers!

I am writing in order to demand that you take as much action as your office allows to bring the three officers who unjustifiably killed Elijah McClain to justice. Elijah McClain was slain at the hands of three officers who acted with malice and hatred, and operated outside the bounds of the law in every way. These men do not deserve to hold an office of power, and the only way for justice to be served is for them to be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for their heinous and reprehensible actions. Elijah McClain's dying words are truly harrowing, as he apologizes for a crime he did not commit, begs for the chance to "do better" when he was simply walking home, and tells his murderers that he loves them shortly before vomiting from the pressure applied to his neck. The officers chose to take the life of this innocent man, and dishonored the oath they took to protect and serve by willingly doing the opposite. I urge you to push for the reopening of investigation into Elijah's death, in cooperation with third party and civilian investigators, and ensure that his murderers are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. The people of Colorado are watching, and your response, or lack thereof, will not go unnoticed.
