Fresno Police Corruption - Fresno Citizens Have Had Enough

On July 21, 25-year-old Julian Celaya reportedly stole two 12-packs of
beer from a liquor store in Fresno, California. Minutes later he was
murdered in a hail of police gunfire. The cops may have fired as many
as 45 shots.

Three days earlier, on July 18, Rene LaCentra, a 45-year-old unemployed
white woman, was shot three times by Fresno police after a car chase
through downtown. Police say they went after LaCentra after she made an
illegal turn. Today she's in the jail infirmary with wounds in the
chest, shoulder and arm.

On July 16, two days before cops shot LaCentra, they killed Roderick
Lee Bartolette in a northwest Fresno hotel. The cops claim they were
doing a drug investigation and that Bartolette was part of a shoot-out.
Six days, three police shootings, two deaths. The Fresno police are out
of control, and anger among the people of Fresno is boiling to the
surface. We need to stand up and not stand for this kind of police
corruption and brutality.
