Swiftly for swift
We the undersigned community peacefully assemble to petition the Honorable Judges of the Norfolk General District Court, the Norfolk Commonwealth's Attorney, our Mayor Kenneth Alexander and our elected officials who have the power to redress this tragic situation involving Mr. Isaiah Swift who was shot in the back while fleeing from a Norfolk Police Officer. Mr. Swift had recently been discharged from hospital care after a major operation which compromised his immune system and left him defenseless to fight off bacteria and viruses! During this pandemic-Covid-19-coronavirus time, we ask that the scales of JUSTICE not JUST-US be balanced by giving him a meaningful opportunity to regain his health and live to face the NPD criminal allegations as well as his against the NPD! We are simply asking that he be treated humanely and given a bail! We ask as a community that this bail not be so unreasonable as to be an insult to our plea for human decency but fair on its own terms! We ask that you all do not sink into political correctness or personal biases but to respect your roles to your constituents! We respectfully ask for his immediate release!
