On what would have been his 24th birthday, Erik Salgado’s Oakland family is demanding answers after their son was killed by CHP officers. Andrea Nakano reports. (7-13-20)
This is the press release from Erik Salgado‘s Family:
Oakland—On what would have been the 24th birthday of Erik Salgado his family is demanding the video footage and the names of the California Highway Patrol (CHP) officers who shot and killed him on June 6th. CHP shot as many as 40 rounds into the car killing him and injuring his girlfriend, Brianna Colombo, who was four months pregnant at the time.
Unlike the Oakland Police Department, CHP is not required to release the names of officers who kill, and if they have a history of misconduct. The family of Erik Salgado is calling for an end to the contract that allows CHP to operate on Oakland streets without accountability. The event is a celebration of Erik Salgado as a father, son, and young man by the people who love him in response to CHP public statements trying to dehumanize him and paint him as a criminal.
Note from Zennie62Media and Oakland news Now: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland news Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
