More Than 1,000 Attend Andy Lopez Protest Rally in Santa Rosa

Source: KQED News Staff and Wires



The Associated Press is reporting that more than 1,000 people marched at the rally this afternoon in Santa Rosa to protest the fatal shooting of 13-year-old Andy Lopez.

The protesters, including middle- and high-school-age students and members of the Occupy movement, assembled in downtown Santa Rosa before marching through streets with signs and hooded sweatshirts bearing photos of the boy.

"Andy Lopez did not have to die," they chanted during the nearly three-hour, mostly peaceful demonstration. No arrests were made.

And here is something that took me completely by surprise buried in the article


"In the state of California we have a lot of laws that cover the protection of privacy of police officers and as a result of that, a lot of these complaints about police conduct, full reports are rarely made public," Gullixon said. "The question is ultimately what will come of that and how much will people know of what actually transpired."



So by that statement I guess the BEST way to protect a fellow officer in case like this is NOT to investigate. Because once an officer has Witness statements or Forensics Trajectory Reports he is bound by law to submit that as evidence. But if the question never is asked, the statement is never taken, or the Forensics work never performed it may be bad police work but its "No Harm / No Foul" - its not illegal. And no one will ever know

WOW

Could you immagine if a 2nd Amendment Type had been shot

The conversation we would be having instead of a 13yr old Hispanic boy

1 answer - Its a plot by Obama

2 - his hand wasn't even on the pistol grip

3 - he never even had a chance to turn around as reported by Eye Witnesses

4 - 7 shots ... Wtf


Let's admitt it apologist - its the color of his skin that has formed 99% of the opinion

Excellent article about Andy Lopez shooting

Witnesses recount deputy fatally shooting Santa Rosa teen

Source: KGO-TV

SANTA ROSA, Calif. (KGO) -- We're learning more in the ongoing investigation of a Sonoma County sheriff's deputy who shot and killed a 13-year old who was carrying a replica assault rifle.

The collection of candles and balloons honoring Andy Lopez continues to grow and people continue to show up to pay their respects. Maria Marquez and Juana Rojas have attended the memorial every day since the shooting because they want to tell the boy's parents what they saw when he was killed.

"Y nosotros nos venimos detras de la patrulla hasta aqui, el estop," Rojas said

She says they were right behind the patrol car at a stop sign. Rojas saw the deputies turn on their police lights, then drive over to where the teenager was standing in an open lot.

Being that some one wiped the video of the shooting off the internet and so many questions are left unanswered by the Sonoma county Sheriffs Dept. this is going to get very interesting.

A death that drives us to our knees

A death that drives us to our knees

But as with so many people who have been participating in vigils and marches in Santa Rosa since Tuesday, I'm also having a hard time understanding why the deputy felt so threatened that he had to pull the trigger eight times.

After all, it was not as if they had evidence that this suspicious person with his back to them presented a clear and present danger. He was not walking toward a crowd of people. The

deputies were not responding to a report of a dangerous person firing an assault weapon in the area.

Residents of that area in fact are used to seeing young men with airsoft rifles roaming the open fields. Andy was killed beside a large undeveloped lot where, in the spring, the grass grows so tall that it's a fun place for children to run and hide and play with BB guns. Were the

officers not familiar with that?

Police Fired At Teen After He Was On The Ground, Says Witness

Andy Lopez Shooting: Police Fired At Teen After He Was On The Ground, Says Witness




Santa Rosa Police say two deputies who shot and killed a 13-year-old boy carrying a toy rifle only fired at the boy as he stood holding what they thought was a real assault weapon. But one resident of the neighborhood where the shooting took place has now stepped forward with a different story.

In an interview with KTVU-TV, Ethan Oliver says he witnessed officers fire shots into Andy Lopez after the teen had fallen to the ground. Oliver lives across the street from the field where the shooting took place in Santa Rosa, Calif. He says he walked outside after hearing two gun shots and saw Lopez already on the ground. "Then the cops went at it again and unloaded like 6 to 7 shots, Oliver said. KTVU asked him "if he meant that the deputy shot Lopez while he was on the ground." And Oliver stuck to his claim, stating that was "exactly what I saw."


Authorities haven't yet responded to Oliver's statement
