16 year Old with Broken Back After Sac PD Intentionally Rammed Him with a Police Car

Sacramento - On July 22, 2018 at around 11pm in the Del Paso Heights neighborhood on Eleanor Ave near Rio Linda Blvd. Sac PD chased down a 16 year old boy on his bike and violently hit him with a police vehicle. The officer intentionally rammed him on his bike with a vehicle, causing him to fly over another car. The boy was hit and flew in the air approximately 10 feet, where he landed in a neighbor’s yard. It took more than 15 minutes for ambulance to arrive. Sac PD prevented the boy’s mother, who was on the scene from seeing her son irrespective of his serious injuries. The injured boy was even handcuffed, although it was obvious that he was not able to move.

The Audacity of a Mayor Steinberg

I first met Darrell Steinberg in 2014.

I lived in Sycamore Terrace Apartments. They are right behind Nugget Market on Florin Road in Greenhaven. I lived in bldg 4 and so did Steinberg and his family. I would see him every day almost. He was hella friendly. He would say hello with a big smile. This was the same time I had just started Incite Insight. For months I was telling myself to talk to him. Back then I wanted to pursue a political office and he was a state senator at the time. So I really wanted to pick his mind but was very nervous to approach him. Finally, one day I saw him and stopped him. I told him I had just started an organization that wanted to combat police violence. I told him that I wanted to sit down with him one day and take any advice he had on reaching out to our political officials effectively. 

Darrell Steinberg welcomed it and gave me his personal cell phone number.

9 People Dead, 3 Beaten, 1 Burned

Since October of 2015, (32 months ago) law enforcement has killed 9 Sacramentans.

Mathematically that's 1 person every 3.5 months.

How many need to be killed before we do something other than watch the video and act sad and helpless?

Yes I am calling you out, not in.

Where are you?!!
