On Monday, August 9 our organization stood with Angelo’s family, community, and the Justice for Angelo Quinto! Justice for All! Coalition in the announcement of the family’s decision to move forward with filing a Federal Civil Rights Lawsuit against the City of Antioch’s Police Department.
This announcement comes 8 months after Angelo’s horrific death at the hands of Antioch Police Officer Jim Perkinson, who recently retired from the Antioch Police Department after 20 years in the force. Perkinson’s retirement now protects his pension and assets; should any charges be brought against him by the DA or if he is convicted, his pension and assets will be protected.
The members of L.E.A.D Filipino continue to stand with Angelo’s family as they fight through this tragedy.
