Activists call on district prosecutors to prosecute police for abuse
San Diego – A local militant group continues to call on San Diego County District Attorney Summer Stephan to prosecute police for abuse or resignation.
The San Diego Racial Justice League held a press conference outside the Justice Department on Saturday afternoon.
During the rally, Anthony Carolino talked about his brother Dennis Carolino, who was shot and killed by the San Diego police in 2019.
Anthony Carolina said: “My brother is the number one protector in my life, and now I want to protect the people.”
The District Attorney’s Office later reported that the shooting was justified because Carlollino waved a shovel at the police.
Anthony claimed that the investigation was unfair. He also said that more training is needed on how to deal with mental health crises.
He said: “When my brother was killed by the San Diego police, I learned a lot about San Diego and I knew how dirty the system was.”
A report by the state attorney showed that from 1993 to 2017, law enforcement officers in San Diego County shot more than 450 people. Activists say Stephen has not yet punishes police abuses, and no police have been prosecuted in 25 years.
Buki Domingos of the San Diego Racial Justice League said: “We still have constant problems in the county where homeless people are being beaten in La Jolla.”
Domingos pointed to the case of Angel Hernandez, where an MTS officer fatally lowered Hernandez with his knees on his neck. Domingos said that Hernandez’s death seemed to be almost the same way that George Floyd died.
She said: “It’s amazing to know that we have Freud here.” “So why doesn’t anyone say anything about it, why can we not prosecute those officials?”
FOX 5 asked Stephan for advice, but has yet to hear any response. However, in the same prosecution or resignation campaign in 2020, the District Attorney’s Office issued this statement to FOX 5.
Part of the statement:
“Our office is very careful to ensure that our analysis is carried out in accordance with the law, independent, objective and thorough.”
