A petition is on the move to request an investigation into the discrimination of the trial as well as other incidents leading up to the trial.

To anyone who is a member of a bikers club, Michael Baisden from 94.5 KSOL is organizing and petitioning all biker clubs to come together to ride out to the rally in Louisiana. If you're interested, you can go to his website for more information. The Steve Harvey Morning Show is also petitioning entertainers and groups to also join in the support.
