Add comment on:Candlelight Vigil/Protest in Watsonville against Police Brutality
No mo' Police brutality!
On Friday January 23, 2008, Annette Garcia, a mother three, was shot to death by Riverside Sheriffs after they received calls that she was suicidal and under duress due to a marriage dispute. Reports by the family and witnesses report that she posed no harm to the officers involved and was shot at six times until a bullet finally hit her in the back as she tried to run for cover. It took over an hour to get medical attention and she died in the arms of her own children. Due to this outrage and other recent police misconducts and abuse around the nation, several community members from Watsonville and Santa Cruz held a candlelight vigil/ protest to denounce these vicious attacks by law enforcement. Participants held signs demanding an end to police brutality, Justice for Oscar Grant, Justice for Rudy Cardenas, and **** the police!. Other actions are planned in the upcoming week.
