Add comment on:Gary King Jr Memorial removed by BART
Paul Barron's community memorial mural of Gary King Jr was buffed by BART (Bay Area Rapid Transport) today, September 24th, 2009. The mural was painted at the end of 2007, after police officer Patrick Gonzales beat, tazered, and shot 20 year old, unarmed and innocent, Gary King Jr in the back. Gary passed away in hand cuffs next to this pillar, while his young cousin had to watch, unable to put pressure on the wounds because officer Gonzales put a gun to his head and said that he would kill him if he touched Gary.
