JUSTICE FOR CASEY
The 23-year old was shot and killed by police while entering his own home after a dentist appointment.
Casey Goodson, Jr. was fatally shot outside of his Ohio home on December 4th, 3030. He was entering his home, keys in the door, when Franklin County Sheriff’s Deputy Jason Meade SHOT HIM IN THE BACK THREE TIMES, though the police maintain the deputy shot Goodson in the torso (like that’s any better).
He was killed in front of his grandmother, his cousin, and two toddlers.
Because Franklin County still does not require their deputies to wear body cameras, we will never see what happened from the perspective of the shooter. We do see this – Casey committed no crime, was entering his own home carrying a sandwich, and was wrongfully gunned down by an officer who took his life. The officer had just finished an unsuccessful sting operation in the neighborhood.
THIS HAS GOT TO STOP. LET’S TAKE ACTION:
FRANKLIN COUNTY SHERRIFFS DEPT: (610) 523-333 / @OHFCSO
OHIO GOVERNOR MIKE DeWINE: (614) 644-4357/ @MikeDeWine
COLUMBUS MAYOR ANDREW GINTHER: (614) 645-7671/ @MayorGinther
WHAT TO SAY:
Demand transparency from both the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office and the Columbus Police Department in every step of this case.
Demand they arrest and charge Jason Meade for the murder of Casey Goodson, Jr.
Demand that the Franklin County Sheriff’s Deparment immediately start wearing body cameras.
