Petition: Justice for Charleena Lyles! We demand an independent, community-based investigation into Charleena’s killing!



We, the undersigned, have no confidence that an internal police investigation will find justice for Charleena. We demand Seattle’s Mayor and City Council appoint an independent, community-based committee, empowered to investigate Charleena’s killing, with full access to case evidence, witnesses, and department policies. Nationwide, of 1,155 people killed by police in 2016, only 13 officers were charged, and none convicted. Going forward, we need democratically elected community oversight boards with full powers to hold police departments accountable.
