Sun Jul 24 2011 (Updated 07/31/11)
Demonstrations in Manteca, West Sacramento, & Stockton Against Police Brutality and Murder
Protests took place over week in Manteca, Sacramento, and Stockton around incidents of police brutality and murder. All three demanded answers and the releasing of information by the police in regards to the cause of death of those in question. On July 19th, family, friends, and community members marched on the Manteca City Council, demanding answers concerning the shooting death of Ernesto Duenez Jr. Ernesto was killed by Manteca police earlier in July during a traffic stop as he exited the back of a truck with his hands up.

In West Sacramento on July 20th, people rallied against Sacramento police who brutality beat one man while responding to a fight. Police arrived and beat the man, who later had to be put in crutches and then pushed his wife who was holding their child to the ground. Close by, another man was filming the incident and police arrested him and took his camera. He now sits in a jail cell awaiting deportation. According to a post on Indybay: On July 17th, West Sacramento resident Jesus Castro was arrested and had his camera confiscated by West Sacramento police while videotaping an incident of police brutality. Mr. Castro, who is undocumented, now faces deportation and is currently being held at Yolo County Jail.

On July 22nd, family members, friends, and supporters demonstrated against the brutal shooting death of James Rivera in 2010. Protesters rallied outside of the Stockton Police Department HQ and then proceeded to march through Downtown Stockton to the DA's office. Various speakers addressed the crowd and later in the day a BBQ and vigil were held to commemorate James Rivera's life.
