MANIFESTO OF LOVE
...to end police violence and the criminalization of those without homes.
October 22nd No Police Brutality Day
Saturday, October 22, 2016
Candle light vigil starts at 6:30 PM
Pacific Avenue and Water and Front Streets, Santa Cruz
REMEMBER SEAN SMITH ARLT, AUTHOR OF THE LOVE MANIFESTO
“He was loving, caring, kind, and greatly inspired by social justice issues.”
"I’m' just amazed that they shot a man with a rake," said neighbor Larry Millsap.
Sean’s neighbor, Margaret Nelson said “We have to as a society step up and find a way to deal with mentally ill people when they're out of their minds that doesn't entail just killing them because they don't respond."
The Santa Cruz Police killed a mentally ill residence Sean Smith Arlt on the West Side. A second mentally ill person, John Blinkenberg, took his own life during a stand off with the police and their BearCat Armored Vehicle. This is part of a nationwide crisis where police use deadly force on people of color and the mentally ill. Call on the Santa Cruz Police Department to use a compassionate response for those suffering from mental health issues or forces to live on our streets.
October 22nd No Police Brutality Day started in 1996 in response to a number of high profile murders by the police of people of color and the brutal repression of non-violent protests.
