Richmond Rally for Pedie Perez (3/17/15)
On March 17th 2015 about 55 people rallied in front of Richmond City Hall demanding that City Council fire police officer Wallace Jenson, who shot Richard Perez III dead in September 2014. Perez, better known as "Pedie," was unarmed, but at the inquest officer Jensen said that Pedie had tried to take his gun and that he feared for his life. Witnesses dispute this, and Pedie's family have filed a civil lawsuit.
