“Herrera was shot by a Sacramento police officer around 6 yesterday evening, when he was walking with his friend Arturo in a neighborhood they live in.
.. Arturo says he was holding onto Herrera’s shoulder as he guided him along Teekay Way. Police say officers patrolling the area spotted the two and believed they looked suspicious and approached them.”
The reason the police say they stopped Ascension (suspicion) sounds like nonsense. We can only wonder if the police would have thought Ascension was suspicious if he was white. We are deeply saddened by these events, and we hope there will be vengeance for Ascension’s killing. (Ed. Note: this commentary has been modified – thanks to a friend of Ascension, it was pointed out that the previous commentary was unclear)
