David Ikard created this petition for Professor Ore who is facing felony charges. The petition is directed to Michael M. Crow, President of Arizona State University. ASU is backing the actions of the police and rejecting the idea of racial profiling out of hand. Meanwhile, the Ethnic Studies Department at ASU has denounced the President's actions and stands behind Professor's Ore's account (according to BJ Janice Peak-Graham, Founder/Executive Producer OUR COMMON GROUND Media & Communications l Moderator.) If the felony charge stands, Professor Ore will not only lose her job but will face serious prison time. This is beyond outrageous. So lets stop this gross injustice from escalating further. You can also support Professor Ore via donations at erslegaldefense.com.
"Because the underlying criminal charges are pending, there is not much more we can say at this time. The Maricopa County Attorney's Office has reviewed all available evidence, including the police report, witness statements, and audio and video recordings of the incident, and decided to press criminal charges of assaulting a police officer, resisting arrest, refusing to provide identification when requested to do so by an officer, and obstructing a highway or public thoroughfare.” [read more:
