1/21/13 Shortly after 10 AM today approximately 40 protesters gathered on the steps of the Vallejo Police Department on Tuolumne St. for a planned protest against the killing of Mario Romero, Guy Jarreau and others by Vallejo Police. There were protesters from a wide range of organizations including The Black Panthers, Build United Labor Black and Brown Self Defense Guards, people identifying themselves with the SEIU Union, socialist groups and others.

VPD Lieutenant Ken Park spoke with the protesters twice over their use of a public address system without a permit. Park even produced the documents containing the statute on his second visit, asking that the amplification be shut off; a request that was promptly ignored. One member of the public chastised the group stating, “This is not about Martin Luther King.”

The event was peaceful and wound down around noon.
