District Attorney Gascón tries unsuccessfully to tell us why he doesn’t want to charge the officers who killed Amilcar

On July 25, several of us asked San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón why, after a year-and-a-half of investigation, he has not filed murder charges against the officers who killed Amilcar.

Gascón said he expects to complete his investigation in 6-9 weeks from last Monday.

He claimed that, even with solid eyewitness testimony and two separate autopsies, he still lacks enough evidence to prosecute them. He also blamed the current rigged system that protects officers who kill from prosecution.

We don’t buy it

As Public Defender Jeff Adache notes, despite whatever obstacles the rigged judicial system puts in his way, the DA already has all the evidence he needs to bring this case to trial.

But it takes courage. True, the DA will face much opposition from the California Law Enforcement community if he files the charges. But he can’t let fear keep him from doing his job.

District Attorney Gascón:

  • Don’t be a coward
  • Do the right thing
  • Charge the officers who killed Amilcar with murder

We demand our day in court.

What YOU can do:
Call the DA: (415) 553-1751 

Tell Gascón to do the right thing.
Say what’s in your heart. If it helps, use this script:

Hello, my name is __________________. I am a registered San Francisco voter. I want justice for Amilcar Perez Lopez, and I stand with my community in demanding DA Gascón charge the officers who killed Amilcar with murder. The DA must do the right thing. We are waiting and watching!

Save the date

Friday, August 26, 6pm, at the site where Amilcar was killed (Folsom between 24th and 25th).

We’ve invited the DA – we want answers. Stay tuned for more details.
