7/19: A Memorial Service and Demonstration were held on Saturday to demand Justice for Rudy Cardenas and Cau Bich Tran in San Jose. The family of Rudy Cardenas asks that supporters attend the Grand Jury, which began on July 19th. Update from July 19th and 20th.
Rudy Cardenas was shot and killed by State Narcotics Agent Michael Walker on Februrary 17th, 2004. He was mistaken for David Gonzales, who was a wanted parolee. Cardenas was shot in the back while pleading for his life. He was shot around 1:23pm on 4th & St. James in San Jose, CA. Rudy Cardenas then lay on the concrete bleeding while officers held back the paramedics. About a half an hour later paramedics were able to take him 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 lost her youngest son, and five children lost their father.
Cardenas's family and supporters have met with the Human Relations Commission and held a town meeting about the case. On July 10th, there was a car wash fundraiser at Realty World in San Jose. A Grand Jury investigation into murder charges in the case began on July 19th. Although the District Attorney had initially changed his mind about whether or not it would be an open or closed hearing after a good deal of public pressure, it was decided that the Grand Jury will be open to the public.
