Protesting has a history of raising awareness of civil rights issues and catalyzing social change. While we understand that protests can become unruly and violent, and often require police intervention, police officers shouldn't act rashly on the assumption that all protesters have violent or disorderly intentions.
Please urge the NYPD to stop using violence to control non-violent protesters. Thank you for taking the time to read and consider this petition.
