The people say NO MORE!!! All three of these victims were unarmed and assassinated by officers in their home towns.

James Rivera was 16 years old and killed when officers fired 48 shots at him from 9mm pistols and one AR-15 assault rife.

Mario Romero, a father, brother, and friend to many, was murdered by Vallejo Police. Mario was not suspected of a crime and was sitting in his own car in front of his home when officers Dustin Joseph and Sean Kenny unloaded their guns on him, stealing him away from us for life.

Andy Lopez was only 13 years old when Sonoma County Sheriff Deputy Erick Gelhaus shot him 7 times because he was playing with an airsoft rifle in a field near his home in Santa Rosa Ca.
