Solidarity Actions

As members of the Ohio Student Association occupy space inside the Beavercreek Police Department, we are calling on our allies and supporters from around the state and nation to take action with us. Thank you all for your support and love! 

Call the Beavercreek Police Station to Support Justice for John Crawford. 

Call 937-426-1225. Ask to speak with Police Chief Dennis Evers.. If they put you through and you get his voice mail, leave a message. If they won't put you through, just speak to whoever picks up. 

"I am calling to support the demands of the people occupying the police station.

  1. I'd like to file a Citizen Complaint Report against Sean Williams.  On August 5, Sean Williams killed John Crawford III. This is the second person Williams has killed in the line of duty--he is responsible for 2 of 2 police-involved deaths in the department's history. I am joining others in demanding that you fire Officer Williams, or at the very least disarm him. He should not have a gun. It is equally essential that the police training and protocol on the use of force are overhauled so that there are no more John Crawfords.

  2. I'd also like to file a complaint against Ronald Ritchie.  Ritchie provided misleading information about John Crawford III on August 5, and that misleading information led to the death of Crawford and a woman who had a heart attack and died as a result of the commotion from the police shooting.  I am concerned that Ritchie's caricature of John was based in anti-black racism, and the police department must not tolerate inaccurate and misleading 911 calls that put the community in jeopardy. 

I am following this issue and look forward to seeing what action the Beavercreek police take in this important matter.
