Demand investigations into the Oakland police killing of Hernan Jaramillo!
Oakland police killed Hernan Jaramillo and hid the video of his killing from the public for 2 and half years. The officers beat him to the ground in the street, dragged his body 20 feet, and pinned him down with all of their weight on top of him -- ignoring him as he repeatedly cried out, “I can’t breathe...they’re killing me,” for 15 minutes -- until his body laid lifeless on the sidewalk in handcuffs.Hernan was an innocent, unarmed man who wasn’t doing anything wrong when police killed him. There hasn’t been a public investigation into his death or any charges against the police who killed him. And the Oakland Police Department refuses to answer any questions about his death! Now that the video of his killing has been leaked to the public, this is our chance to finally demand justice for Hernan and his family. Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf has the power to force an investigation and demand accountability, but we need thousands of people to join us and speak out now if we are going to have a fighting chance at justice!SIGN THE PETITION to Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf saying:“I demand that you call on Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley and Oakland Police Chief Sean Whent to launch immediate investigations into Hernan Jaramillo’s death and hold the officers involved accountable to the full extent of the law.”
