Justice for Bernardo Palacios Carbajal! Rose Park Brown Berets and Just Media have a list of demands for SLCo DA Sim Gill and SLCo Mayor Erin Mendenhall.
Demand Mayor Mendenhall and SLC Police Chief Mike Brown Fire and Charge SLC Officers that Killed Bernardo Palacios- Thank you for helping release the bodycam footage of Bernardo Palacios. It’s clear that police officers murdered Bernardo Palacios when nonlethal force could have been used. His back was turned and he was running away. This was a clear case of murder.
