After nearly 90,000 ColorOfChange members raised their voices, Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott fired Officer Ben Fields, but he is not facing any criminal charges.
As of right now, the only people facing charges are the young students Fields brutalized. It’s inexcusable. Fields — who has a long history of violence targeting Black students and Richland residents — should never be a police officer again, but he must likely be charged with a crime in order to loose his license.
Will you join me in urging Richland County Solicitor Dan Johnson to drop the charges against all students and charge Officer Fields with assault?

Read about the update “200,000 People Have STOOD UP For Sandra Bland! Tell Your Friends! Email! Retweet! Post on Facebook!” below, and join me in supporting this campaign by signing the petition!
