DA's Decision Not to Prosecute Erick Gelhaus Prompts Civil Disobedience in Santa Rosa
In response to the decision from Sonoma County district attorney Jill Ravitch's decision not to prosecute Erick Gelhaus, the Sheriff's Deputy that killed 13-year-old Andy Lopez, protesters assembled in Santa Rosa on July 12 and marched through the downtown streets. The group stopped in intersections to trace themselves in chalk as a reminder that an innocent boy was killed. After the official march was declared to be over, many continued to march in an act of civil disobedience towards Highway 101, where they blocked an off-ramp and all three northbound lanes of traffic, causing a response from riot police.
