Isiah Murrietta-Golding Shot in the Back of the Head by Fresno Police
Fresno Community Demands Justice for Killing of 16-Year-Old in 2017
After attorneys for the family of Isiah Murrietta-Golding released video of the 16-year-old being shot in the back of the head while fleeing officers, over 100 people protested in Fresno on October 28. The demonstration was held at the Federal Building in downtown Fresno.

On April 14, 2017, Isiah Murrietta-Golding was running away from the police when he was shot. Police then handcuffed his motionless body. Some people at the demonstration called it murder and protest signs demanded justice. Speakers spoke passionately about ending the constant shooting of young people in Fresno by the police. Gloria Hernandez, spokesperson for the Fresno Stolen Lives Committee, passed out a list with the names of the 91 people killed by Fresno PD since 1997.

Jerry Dyer became police chief in August 2001, declared himself to be God’s Minister of Justice and has created a culture that has resulted in an unusually high number of what has been described as extra judicial executions. Dyer is now running to be the mayor of Fresno. In a surprise announcement, Reverend Floyd Harris, who spoke at the demonstration, said he has taken out papers to run against Dyer.
