Petition to Address Grievances Against the Franklin County Criminal Injustice System
“We, the undersigned, are alarmed by the shooting and death of 16-year old Joseph Haynes. We understand that the death of Joseph Haynes inside of a Franklin County courtroom is the result of excessive use of force by a Franklin County Sheriff’s deputy. We hope that extending the prohibition against firearms in the courthouse to include all law enforcement officers will prevent them from killing children.” Sign the Petition
