Justice 4 Terrance Franklin

terrance franklinView Upcoming Events

On May 10, 2013 Minneapolis police chased down and killed 22 year old Terrance Franklin in uptown Minneapolis. Franklin had committed no crime, yet he was shot in the back of the head 5 times and in the back twice by Minneapolis police officer Lucas Peterson. The police version of events makes no sense. We fear a cover-up. The County Attorney Mike Freeman has refused to release the Medical Examiners report and autopsy to Terrance’s family.

What do we want:

  • We want you to put yourself in Franklin’s parents Walter and Sheila’s shoes. You would want someone to join you in getting justice if your kid was killed unlawfully by the police.
  • We want you to stand in solidarity with us in our effort to get justice.
  • We want Lucas Peterson who has cost the city $700,000 and has been named in 13 excessive force complaints, including the death of a citizen in 2002, to be arrested, indicted and charged.
  • We want Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman to do what he usually does, which is prosecute those who have acted unlawfully. We want Lucas Peterson arrested and charged just as any other citizen would be who killed someone unlawfully.
