Police Shooting Death Inquest Process

To be delivered to Dow Constantine, King County Executive

Petition Statement

Change the Unfair Inquest Process for Police Shooting Deaths Now
There are currently 259 signatures. NEW goal - We need 300 signatures!

Petition Background

On June 13, 2017, high school student Tommy Le, was fatally shot by King County sheriff’s deputy Cesar Molinas. Tommy Le was unarmed. On October 12, 2017, King County Executive Dow Constantine ordered an inquest into the shooting.

The inquest is structured so that one of King County’s own prosecuting attorneys introduces all witnesses and evidence to the jury. Presently, the family and their attorneys are merely observers in this one-sided exercise. This petition is to demand a voice for Tommy Le's family, by allowing their lawyers to speak to the inquest jury. This requires King County Executive Dow Constantine to modify the unfair rules governing the inquest.
