Officers Derek Chauvin (Badge #1087) and Tou Thao (Badge #7162)

One email layout 

Change the location & name and use the subject line “JUSTICE FOR GEORGE FLOYD”.

To whomever this may concern:

I am taking time out of my day from my home of [location] to write about the recent events that have occurred in your city. I am demanding justice for George Floyd, a man who was killed in cold blood which, I might add, was caught on tape. There is proof that these officers murdered someone. You need to call it what it is: MURDER. Firing the officers involved is not enough. Officer Derek Chauvin #1087 is guilty of murder, and the three other officers, are accomplices to this hate crime which took someone's LIFE. George Floyd and his family deserve true justice. Giving these officers paid leave even though they KILLED an innocent man is beyond inappropriate. They killed someone. Charge them with murder. They are murderers.

As an American citizen, I refuse to sit silently and watch how inappropriately this is being handled, ESPECIALLY because an innocent black man lost his life at the hands of your incompetent officers.

I demand justice for George Floyd and I refuse to be silent until all these officers are taken to court and charged for their crimes.

With whatever respect is due to you,

Email: ; ; ; 



My name is [insert name]. I am a resident of [State/City] and I am emailing today to demand accountability for the racist murder of George Floyd.

I demand that charges be pressed against all officers involved in this heinous racist murder, including specifically Derek Chauvin and Tou Thao. They should not be allowed to keep their jobs and should be charged and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for manslaughter.

George Floyd should be alive today if it was not for the gross abuse of power and white supremacy exhibited by the Minneapolis Police Department, all officers involved must face consequences for this murder in order to provide his family with justice and prevent further cops from committing brutal acts of violence against our communities.

In addition, I demand that we start providing more support towards community efforts and organizations outside of the police forces in order to prevent police brutality and violence in the future.
