Missin Peace Issued the Following Statement on the Murder of Casey Goodson Jr.

Abingdon, MD, December 20, 2020 --Missin Peace is extremely saddened by the death of Casey Goodson Jr. We express deepest condolences to his family and the city of Columbus, Ohio. The killing of Casey Goodson Jr. by a Franklin County Sheriff Deputy is another example of a life unjustly taken by law enforcement. And Franklin County’s response to this tragedy is a glaring example of the agencies, built to serve and protect, turning a blind eye to the repeated atrocities of police brutality.



Nationally, on average, one person is killed every 7 hours by a law officer; law enforcement is indicted in less than 1% of killings (compared to a 90% indictment rate for citizens). Police brutality is a leading cause of death for young men in the US, making it a public health crisis that affects an alarming number of people in our nation - men, women, and children.

At Missin Peace, we are constantly on a mission to pursue justice for victims of police brutality by aggregating formal police complaints from the public, records often buried in internal databases, and making them accessible to investigative journalists, hiring managers, and civil rights attorneys.

We call for any victim of police brutality to register official complaints at MissinPeaces.com to aid in investigations that will bring police abuse to an end, one case at a time.

Ducklings & Dogs & Opposums... OH REALLY????

  Is it possible, that we live in a society where Police Departments put more resources, time, and energy into saving wild animals than they put into saving human beings?  Do we really live in a time where law enforcement will take more time to deescalate an issue through animal wildlife than they will for a human with a mental health condition? Unfortunately, YES! Yes, we do!!!

Policing the Police from a Battleground that Really Counts

  As he lay flat on his back, bleeding, his only thought was, “Why?” He watched in horror as the officers rolled him over like a criminal, cuffed his hands, and left him unattended while he bled. When he later asked the officer, who had shot him why he had done it, the officer said, “I don’t know.”   That’s the story of Charles Kinsey, a black middle-aged therapist who worked at a group home in Miami at the time. On the fateful day, Kinsey had gone out to help Arnaldo Rios Soto, an autistic man who had run away from the group home where he worked. Soto was carrying a toy truck at the time. Someone called the police saying there was a man in the street carrying a gun. Minutes later, Kinsey and Soto were surrounded by police officers, with big guns pointed at them. Kinsey lay flat on his back, held his hands high, and pleaded with the officers not to shoot him or his patient. One of the officers even urged his colleagues to lower their weapons as Soto was carrying a toy truck.
