The Mallerys are a Black ranching couple living in El Paso County, Colorado, and their allegations about the hate crimes
they've experienced in the past few years are horrific.
Local authorities know about these incidents, but so far, they've been blaming the victims rather than holding the racist perpetrators accountable. In fact, they even have significant body cam footage and legal documents relating to the case, but haven't released them yet.
We must ensure justice is brought to this family. The El Paso County Sheriff's Office must finally take action to protect them both from blatant racism!Sign now to demand the El Paso County Sheriff's Office release the legal documents and body cam footage and finally take action to protect the Mallerys!
The El Paso County Sheriff's Office stated that they have received more than 170 calls in the past two years
alone that involve the Mallerys. This is a shocking number of incidents to occur in a lifetime. The fact that they have all taken place in 24 months is alarming.
The Mallerys allege that they have been victims of rampant racism and harassment, including having their property vandalized and being stalked, followed, and even chased. The vandalism they've endured included someone spray painting the n-word on their home. They reported that one particular neighbor trespassed onto their property, pointed guns at them, and made threats against them online.
Additionally, several of the couples' ranch animals have mysteriously wound up dead and mutilated.
The Mallerys have called these acts of intimidation.
But somehow, rather than any of the perpetrators of this alleged harassment being held accountable, both members of the couple were arrested and jailed earlier this week instead.Farming while Black is not a crime, and the Mallerys deserve justice. Sign the petition now to tell the El Paso County Sheriff's Office to finally take these claims seriously, release the body cam footage and legal documents, and protect the Mallerys!
