As the fourth teenager charged with manslaughter in the stabbing death of 19-year old Luka Gordic makes another court appearance tomorrow, friends of the victim are ramping up the pressure, demanding justice is served.
A change.org petition making the rounds on social media has already garnered more than 3,000 signatures.
It demands the three 17-year-olds facing manslaughter charges in youth court be tried as adults – and that the charges be upgraded to murder.
It says “By signing this petition, you stand in solidarity with anyone who see’s that this is a great act of injustice.”
Meanwhile, a GoFundMe page has been launched to raise money for t-shirts that say “Justice for Luka.”
That hashtag has become popular on twitter.
Two of the accused have been released on bail, two remain in custody.
