Our family is trying to get an open Grand Jury. We will be having a protest this Friday, April 1st starting at 12pm, noon. It will be held at the District Attorney's office, located at the corner of Hedding and First Street at 70 W. Hedding in San Jose. We need as much help as we can get.
Hello. My name is Katrina Lalowski, and I am the cousin of 22-year-old Eric Kleemeyer. On January 4, 2005, he was being pursued by the Santa Clara Police in his 1965 Dodge Dart. H refrained from pulling over, as he was driving to his mom's house. He was unarmed and feared for his life, due to a previous beating that went unreported. Police boxed him in a driveway accross the street from his mom's house. Without identifying themselves or asking him to step out of the car, they opened fire and shot him 9 times. An ambulance arrived, and he was pronounced dead at the scene. Our family is trying to get an open Grand Jury. We will be having a protest this Friday, April 1st starting at 12pm, noon. It will be held at the District Attorney's office, located at the corner of Hedding and First Street at 70 W. Hedding in San Jose. We need as much help as we can get. We owe it not only to Eric and Rudy Cardenas, but to the community at large. Thanks in advance for your time and your help.

Best Regards,
Katrina Lalowski
