In case you missed it, here are some photos (By Angelo) of yesterday’s rally in support of police held in front of the Vallejo Police Station on Amador St.
Created with flickr slideshow.
There were around 60 in attendance in support of the VPD as well as members of Mario Romero’s family who held signs of protest and others who have issues around alleged police conduct. No sworn officers were seen participating in the event. There was also a flier passed out referring to Mario Romero, Michael Brown and Eric Garner stating, “THEY COME COLOR CODED FOR A REASON! THINK ABOUT IT” and referring to the three men who died in incidents with police as “THUGS”. Whether the flier represents the position of event organizer Sam Kurshan, or if it is from some other source present at the event is unknown. VIB would welcome any statement from the event organizers should they wish to comment.
12/30 — UPDATE: The following statement (link) from event organizer Sam Kurshan was published in the Times Herald: http://www.timesheraldonline.com/opinion/20141229/sam-kurshan-race-card-has-no-place-here
