A video appeared on Facebook in March 2016 showing Fort Worth Police Officer William Figueroa pepper spraying motorcyclists on a busy road. The incident was captured by of the motorcyclists and soon became viral on social media.
Officer Figueroa was caught on camera getting out of the car and randomly deploying pepper spray at the faces of passing by motorcyclists. Luckily none of them got injured but Officer’s Figueroa actions potentially could lead to a serious car crash. Aren’t police officers supposed to protect people but not to intentionally harm them?
The most disturbing thing about this situation is the decision of the Fort Worth Police Department not to discipline the officer involved. It means that Officer Figueroa now is back patrolling the streets without receiving any punishment for provoking a dangerous situation on the road.
We created this petition to demand the Fort Worth Police Department to discipline Officer Figueroa for his unprofessional and violent actions. All the police officer should be responsible for their actions on-duty and none of their misconducts should remain unpunished.
Sigh this petition if you believe that Officer Figueroa should be disciplined for pepper spraying innocent people without any reason.
