Come To The Table: Justice for Rudy Cardenas
Panel Discussion and Town Hall Meeting
Learn about what is currently going on with the Rudy Cardenas case by hearing from the members of Rudy's family.
Rudy Cardenas, a father of five that was shot and killed by State Narcotics Agent Michael Walker. Rudy Cardenas was mistaken for David Gonzales, a wanted parolee. Rudy Cardenas was shot in the back while pleading for his life on February 17, 2004. He was shot around 1:23pm on 4th & St. James in San Jose, CA. Rudy Cardenas then laid on the concrete bleeding while officers held back the paramedics. About a half an hour later paramedics were able to take Rudy to the hospital. He was brought to the San Jose Medical Center with no pulse. They tried to revive him but it was too late. A mother had lost her youngest son, and five children had lost their father.
"This happens too often in our community and we need to make a change before another life is lost."
