Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was quoted in todays LATIMES.
I have to admit, I have No Idea what that means. F.B. Headquaters is located in Menlo Park, which is in San Mateo County, California.
October 3, 2018 Chinedu V. Okobi a 36 year old black man was killed by Six San Mateo County Sheriff Employees while in Custody. December 31, 2018 The Coroners Office ruled the manner of Death to be a Homicide.
“I have determined the manner of Death to be Homicide.”
Deputy Coroner Heather Diaz #21 reviewed and approved 12/31/2018
HOMICIDE PROTOCOL* 36 year old male involved in a physical altercation with San Mateo County Sheriff’s deputies
March 1, 2019 two months later District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe held a closed to the public Press Conference which I attended. He gave a 26 minute presentation on why he was not charging any of the Five not Six Sheriff Employees in the tragic death of Chinedu Okobi. Who had committed no crime before the deputy decided to engage him. He was tased 7 times, struck with baton, Sprayed in face with O.C. spray and dog piled by SIX Sheriff Employees. After he stopped breathing he was sat up on El Camino Real and ignored for about 9 minutes to make sure he was dead before AMR and Fire Paramedics could get to him.
District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe Never mentions the word Homicide in his presentation it’s only at the very end (47:30) of the Question and Answer period when he was asked by KQED Reporter Julie Small “Do you know the Manner of Death?”
A reasonable person would ask since it was determined a Homicide, How is it that no criminal charges were filed against the Six County Employees?
Last week the world saw George Floyd being Murdered by four Police Officers, The United States is Protesting today during a Pandemic because a Citizen was brave enough to try and stop it but also videoed it. The body camera and audio has not been released yet Why?
Yesterday Mark Zuckerberg said “We stand with the Black Community.”
I do not recall Mark Zuckerberg saying One Word about Chinedu Okobi’s Homicide in his own backyard.
