Who Let the Pigs Out?
This year alone over half a dozen people have been killed by the police in San Jose. Corina Cardenas writes on the newswire: "On February 17, 2004 my father, Rudy Cardenas, became one of them. He was taken from my life forever. My father was shot in the back by state narcotics agent Michael Walker." Michael Walker and Brian Link, another agent who chased Cardenas that day, are on the board of the Central Coast Gang Investigators Association (CCGIA), an organization that trains law enforcement on how to deal with gangs. On September 4, 2004, around one hundred people, including Cardenas' family and members of the NAACP, the Coalition of Vietnamese Americans, and many other groups, protested a CCGIA conference at the Double Tree Hotel in San Jose and demanded that Walker, who has been indicted on voluntary manslaughter charges, stop teaching tactics to other officers.
