Manual Diaz was killed by Anaheim, CA police, Saturday, June 21st. He was unarmed and not doing anything illegal when police shot him first in the back, then, after he dropped to his knees, shot him again in the back of the head, killing him. The shooting happened in daylight hours in front of several witnesses, which caused outrage throughout the community. That has led to five days of civil unrest, and unity marches across the country.

The family of the deceased has limited means and now faces substantial expenses, including costs of burial and funeral. They are in need. A fund to help the family of Manuel Diaz has been set up by the family's attorneys. For those who would like to donate to help this needy family, a link to the Manuel Diaz Family Fund can be found at http://www.douglaslopezrumm.com. Every penny goes directly to the family to help with their expenses, and every dollar counts.

Questions can be addressed via email to ddouglas@douglaslopezrumm.com.

"We need more than a melee, more than a riot. To end the routine abuses of the cops we need conditions that don’t require cops, at least not cops who are outsiders charged with earning their collar by training their guns on youth - occupiers comparable to foreign troops in Afghanistan and Iraq who drop bombs almost as sport. We need conditions that allow for community self-policing based on values of kindness and respect. We need to replace the hurling of water bottles with demands for revolution." from :

Good luck with all endeavours on behalf of the bereaved family.
