San Diego Stolen Lives
Brandon Duncan and Aaron Harvey
Coalition Against Penal Code 182.5/SD33
In June 2012, Victor Ortega was shot and killed by Officer Johnathan McCarthy. A U.S. District Judge has recently noted inconsistencies in some of the statements made by McCarthy, who claimed Victor tried to take away his service weapon. There is a further inconsistency around Officer McCarthy's use of a non-lethal Taser and the facts leading up to the struggle between McCarthy and Ortega. Victor Ortega was a loving father, husband, son,  grandson,brother, nephew, cousin, and friend to many.
Brandon (Tiny Doo) Duncan and Aaron Harvey were two of 33 young black men recently arrested and charged with "conspiring" with gang members under CA Penal Code Sec. 182.5. This law makes a person who has been identified as a gang member by police (even if not a gang member, but falsely listed) or supports gangs (rap lyrics) responsible for any crime
committed by a gang member. The injustice was so obvious that a San Diego judge dismissed the charges against Brandon and Aaron on March 15, but many others remain charged and in jail for crimes the D.A. knows they did not commit.
Other panelists include:
  • Community Oversight of Police -Stephanie Jennings, Women Occupy San Diego
  • Brutality and the Border - Pedro Rios, American Friends Service Committee
  • A People's History of the Police -  Krishna Jerry Toolsie, Black and Brown Lives Matter
