Mario Gonzales Family Says Three Alameda Police Officers Killed Him

Family of Mario Gonzalez Responds to Comments from Lawyer Representing the Three Police Officers Who Killed Mario

Oakland, CA—Murder is when one person’s actions wrongfully cause the death of another. The police murdered our son, brother, and father, Mario Gonzalez. Make no mistake about that. We have seen this pattern. After a wrongful death, law enforcement will come out and start victim blaming instead of taking accountability. What the lawyer for the police is doing right now is an absolute disgrace. We are not going to let them away with lying about what they did to Mario.

The video clearly shows that there was no reason to detain Mario. He was nonviolent and even the 911 caller knew Mario was not a threat. At no point was Mario a threat to himself or to the officers. There was absolutely no reason to pile on top of Mario. There was absolutely no reason to pin him down with such force that they murdered him.

The videos show that throughout the entire encounter Mario was the one trying to de escalate the situation. He kept saying, “I’m going to go now, ok?” He kept saying, “thank you,” to the officers. Until his final breath, Mario was crying and telling the officers he is sorry.

The lawyer for the police said Mario tried so hard to get up that a set of keys fell out of the police officer’s pocket. Is she serious? Is she seriously justifying the murder of my brother Mario because a set of keys fell out of a cops pocket?

If police managed to turn a simple situation like this into a fatality, how can we have faith in their competency to respond to an actual emergency? The people who are supposed to keep us safe, are actually the biggest public safety threat by using unnecessary force.

What happened to Mario could have been a simple wellness check. The same thing happened to Steven Taylor, and to Angelo Quinto. Police should not be responding to non violent mental health crises. Police are who society turn to for every social problem, from loud noise to potholes. It doesn’t need to be like this. We need to wean ourselves off this reliance on armed police officers for every public to government interaction.

We are calling on the three offices who killed Mario to be fired. We are calling on District Attorney Nancy O’Malley to charge all those involved in the murder of Mario Gonzalez.

We will not rest until those who killed Mario are held accountable for what they’ve done.

Note from Zennie62Media’s Zennie62 YouTube and Oakland News Now Today Blog SF Bay Area: 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.
