VIDEO: DA Clears Oxnard Police of Wrongdoing in “Justified” Slaying of Innocent Bystander Alfonso Limon
On Saturday, Oct. 13, 2012 relatives said Alfonso Limon Jr., 21, and his brother worked-out at Pacifica High and then started walking home along Garfield Avenue.
At the same time, Oxnard Police said a traffic stop turned violent and officers shot at suspects who police say shot at them. Two people died including Limon.
Ventura County District Attorney Greg Totten announced on Wednesday that none of the nine officers involved would face criminal charges. The D.A.’s report called Limon “innocent”, but said the officer’s actions were “justified.”
Limon’s sister and mother joined dozens of friends for a silent protest outside the Oxnard Police station Wednesday night and again at the scene of the 2012 hooting in La Colonia.
The family settled a wrongful death lawsuit for nearly $7 million with the department. Rebacca Limon said she would gladly return every penny to have her brother back.
MORE KEYT COVERAGE: OXNARD, Ca. – Alfonso Limon Jr.’s mother and sister said they were upset and not surprised by the decision not to charge the officers who shot and killed their brother as he walked home in their La Colonia neighborhood.
… Rebecca Limon said she doesn’t understand how they could shoot her brother 21 times and not face any criminal charges.
“It’s just disgusting how there’s no accountability for their actions whatsoever, there are no consequences… they’re free to kill our loved ones and they’re free to go back on the streets and patrol.”
