A member of our Latino Community who needs a voice: ST PAUL CALL TO ACTION - Shared from the victim’s co-worker’s page:
You folks remember my coworker who was hit and killed as he was biking home from work? Well now the guy who did it feels bad. He panicked. There was road rage involved. And he's hoping to get as light a sentence as possible for speeding through a red light, hitting a human being on a bicycle, leaving him lying in the road with a severed spine, disposing of the car, and then lying about the whole thing for months. The car is still missing, but he feels real bad. And he's been packing the courtroom with friends and family to show what a swell guy he is. I mean, he's a father for chrissakes. So here's what we gotta do. We have to pack the courtroom with people who don't want this monster to get away with this. Jose's family is in Mexico. All he has here are his coworkers to stand up for him. He was also a father, by the way. The sentencing hearing is on August 15th at Ramsey County Courthouse at 1:30 pm. Do you ride a bicycle and want to be able to do so without being murdered? Did you work with Jose? Do you just think vehicular homicide and fleeing the scene of a crime and disposing of evidence and lying to the police is a very bad thing to do? Join us to support Jose, so he has just as many sympathizers in that courtroom.
