Richmond City Council, demanding justice for Pedie Perez. Perez was shot to death by Richmond Police Officer Wallace Jensen on September 14, 2014 shortly after midnight. He had been asked to leave Uncle Sam's Liquor Store, due to alcohol intoxication, and sit on the curb outside. The officer had searched him and found no weapons. After some time, Pedie started to
walk away; the cop wrestled him to the ground and put him in a vicious choke hold. Around this time, the cop shot him. Although he claimed at the inquest that Pedie was reaching for his gun, multiple witnesses said that he never reached for the cop's gun.
Demand that Officer Jensen be fired from the Richmond Police Force and prosecuted for murder! Richmond does not want cops like this.
