Support the Rapada Family in their fight for justice against Police Brutality. The Rapadas were brutalized by police in San Bruno on July 4th, 2011. 4 family members were severely beaten by police. Support the family and communities of color against police gangsterism.
(Editor's note: The graphic photo showing the aftermath of the violence perpetrated on the Rapada family is courtesy SFCHRP.COM. Although the pictures show the scars and bruises of the beating the Rapada's received on new years 2011, the photos were taken after the family had received medical attention. Their appearance prior to the photos were even more graphic)

I will support any proposal that will alleviate the suffering of low-income individuals and People of Color. As an African-American living in a low-income community, the Police are not friends of my community. We are disproportionately effected by the disease of Police Brutality. My mother was one of the most law-abiding and generous people I know, and like many people in our community she had issues with calling the Police.

I remember the days when my mother would tuck me in at night with a sad look on her face, almost to a point of crying. I never did ask what was wrong because I had an idea, but knew that if I went further I felt I would’ve broken her. To this day I still don’t know what makes her sad. I only know one truth to her that I fear on the daily, the idea of losing her child.
