Justice for Robert Chambers

To be delivered to Loretta Lynch, Attorney General and G.F. “Pete” Peterman, United States Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia

Petition Statement

At 19 years old, Robert Chambers was shot in the back of the head by police and he became one in a mounting number of black men in this country to lose their lives unnecessarily at the hands of those charged to protect and serve.
There are currently 229 signatures. NEW goal - We need 300 signatures!

Petition Background

At 19 years old, Robert Chambers was shot in the back of the head by deputy Steven Glidden of the Houston County Sherrif's office. With mounting evidence of police misconduct and a cover up, civil rights attorneys for Robert's mother, Sharese Wells, have filed paperwork to bring this case to trial.

There were fingerprints that were never analyzed, a gun that didn’t match up to reports and another possible suspect in the burglary he was a suspect in, among other inconsistencies. By his own admission, Glidden says he didn’t see a gun on Chambers as he ran.

Please sign this petition asking Loretta Lynch and GF Peterman of the Department of Justice to bring civil rights or criminal charges against the officer so that Robert's loved ones can have a chance at justice.
