On August 9, 2007, Martin Frederick Cotton II, unarmed and defenseless, was beaten brutally on the street by Eureka Police officers and further abused by Humboldt Co. Sheriff “correctional officers” - who left Martin to die in a jail cell.
Since Sept 2008, there has been a federal civil rights lawsuit against the Eureka cops and Humboldt Sheriff's, brought by Martin's baby daughter and his father, Marty Cotton.
