Justice for Anita Gay, Justice for All!
Daughters and grand daughters of Anita Gay, shot in the back and killed by a Berkeley police officer, protest on the year anniversary of her death.
Berkeley California Feb. 20-- Family and friends of Anita Gay held a lively rally on the busy intersection of Martin Luther King and Ashby Boulevard on Friday to commemorate the first anniversary of her murder. The protest demanded that the officer and the Berkeley Police department be held accountable for Anita Gay's death. The protest also called for justice for the victims of the epidemic of police murders in the East Bay .
On February 16, 2008, Anita Gay -grandmother and longtime Berkeley resident - was shot in the back and killed on her front porch by a lone Berkeley police officer. The bullets passed through her into her apartment, grazing her daughter’s face and narrowly missing her grandchild. The police claim the shooting was justified. The media has demonized the family and blame the shooting on Anita.
