Help TCAC demand justice for Mychael Johnson
On March 20th Mychael Johnson was shot and killed by TPD officer Zackri Jones. This was the second time that Jones had killed as a TPD officer. With the history of young black men being unjustly killed by police in Tallahassee it is important that we act now to demand justice.
Many details surrounding this incident are unclear, although police statements indicate that Mychael was unarmed and that there was some kind of fight between a TPD officer and him. We are asking for transparency from the police department and in particular the release of all body and dash cam video footage to allow the public to know exactly what happened.
We are also concerned about the tendency of grand juries to not indict police officers in the case of unjustified killings, and so we are asking for either an independent process or the immediate indictment of Officer Zackri Jones so that a trial can take place.
We hope that you can join us and Mychael's family in demanding justice. This form allows you to send an email to our State Attorney, Chief of Police, Mayor and every City Commissioner. Afterwards please share online. When the community stands together we will have justice.
