PROTEST AND RALLY AGAINST POLICE TERROR AND THE CRIMINALIZATION OF THE POOR.
The City of Vallejo Touts itself as being the most diverse cities in America but it is hiding a very dark secret. That secret is : Vallejo city leaders have failed is residents in every way imaginable by allowing the militarization of it's police force and arming them to the teeth.
City leaders have armed Vallejo Police while failing to drug test or psychologically evaluate any of it's police officers beyond being hired.
What does this mean? If an officer was hired 20 years ago , that is the first and last drug test and psychological evaluation they will ever have. Regardless of histories of abuse, Officer involved shootings , traffic incidents or complaint of excessive force.
In 2012 Vallejo Police Department had the highest amount of officer involved shooting per capita in the nation but still no drug testing or psychological evaluations and May Osby Davis is okay with this.
In 2012 Mario Romero was Murdered by Vallejo police officer's Sean Kenney and Dustin Joseph as he sat in front of his Vallejo home. He was fired at 40 times, Shot 30 times including 8 times through the palms of his hands. He was cut from his seatbelt and his body taken from the crime scene, the crime scene was changed by Sean Kenney , Dusting Joseph Corporal Stan Eng Officer Matthew Thompson and Police Supervisor Clark but still no drug test or psychological evaluation.
Vallejo Police Officer Sean Kenney killed 3 unarmed men in 2012 Anton Barrett Mario Romero and Jeramiah Moore and received a promotion to detective instead of a prison cell, He is now in charge of investigating officer involved shootings for the Vallejo police department. Vallejo Police Officer Dustin Joseph has been awarded officer of the year for his terrorism on the community of Vallejo.
The city of Vallejo Has chosen to criminalize those who are apart of a protected class rather then to offer resources or assist.
The city of Vallejo has failed to step up to the plate where seniors of the Florence Douglas Senior center have been robbed of their pool table and source of enjoyment , they city has sent a clear message that they are not interested in elder abuse, theft of property and discrimination of seniors.
The city of Vallejo has failed to honor measures that have been voted upon by it's residents by making a point to criminalize the use of medical marijuana for the disabled.
There has been a great attempt by so called leaders to insure that they have all hands in the pot by causing confusion. the city of Vallejo has made a point to include police in Medical Marijuana dispensaries while failing to enforce drug testing for its police.
Today we say enough is enough, we are calling for a federal investigation in to the Vallejo Police Department by the US Attorney General, we are demanding criminal charges be filed against Sean Kenney and Dustin Joseph for the murder of Mario Romero. we are calling for immediate enforcement of drug testing for all Vallejo Police officers.
We are demanding an end to the terrorism now!
We are demanding and end to the criminalization of homeless and disabled individuals and protections against terror
We are demanding a return of the pool table stolen from the Florence Douglas senior center Now!
