The petition Milano shared reads:
“According to Lt. Brandon Dean of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Homicide Bureau, Robert Fuller body was found around 4 a.m. Wednesday, June 10, with a rope around his neck, hanging from a tree.
Dean said all indicators point to a suicide but that investigators are waiting for full autopsy results and information from the man’s next of kin regarding past issues with mental illness.
Our hearts break for the grieving family, friends and loved ones and we urge that their privacy please be respected.“
It is evident that Robert did not commit suicide. He was found hung from a tree right outside city hall. This is a clear case of intimidation by White Supremacists to show their distain for Black Lives Matter movement, the protests to demand change for racial equality and police brutality reform.
We demand a thorough and transparent investigation by Palmdale PD, providing ALL video surveillance from city hall & the surrounding buildings/area, the night Robert Fuller was lynched. This was not a case of suicide but murder; to find the persons responsible for his lynching and justice for Robert Fuller and his family.
BLACK LIVES MATTER!
At this time over 250k, including Milano have signed the petition.
