Vallejo Cop Watch will conduct a “Know Your Rights When Confronted by A Police Officers Training” to teach local residents on how to Record Video, Take Pictures and Document the Actions of ROUGE COPS. There will also be a "People's Picket" to raise awareness of the tragedy of the violence seen by an unaccountable police department.
The African American community in Vallejo, and people of low-income in general, are under attack by the Vallejo Police Department and its local government. The people of the community are taking a stand for JUSTICE against the ROUGE COPS of the Vallejo Police Department, declaring that the Vallejo Police Department DOES NOT have the right to be the JUDGE, JURY AND EXECUTOR!!
Since May of 2012 there has been 7 police officers involved shooting and 5 have been fatal. The Vallejo Police Department history and current method of operations shows an attitude of "Shoot first, ask questions later", as seen in the recent brutal murder of Mr. Mario Romero by the Vallejo Police Department, and many others who are harassed, brutalized, and murdered. Witnesses reported that Mr. Romero, who was a father who had just been hired after a clean drug test and a vacating of his probation for a non-violent offense, never got out of his car or made threatening gestures when officers open fire shooting 30 times into his car's windshield in front of his family, and there were no reports of Mr. Romero shooting at the Vallejo Police.
Vallejo Citizens have said ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
