Demo tomorrow for Dion Avila Damon! Bring your love and your rage:
Dion was unarmed when a Denver cop, Jeff Motz, shot him seven times in front of his wife and her child. The Denver Police have attempted to justify Dion’s killing by citing “noncompliance” with commands given to exit the vehicle and an alleged “threatening-type maneuver.”
Jeff Motz was one of several police named in a lawsuit filed by a man who was shot in the back by Denver Police while laying face down on the ground in 2013. In 2003, Motz was one of eight Denver cops who shot at Shaun Gilman, killing the 20-year-old mentally ill man whose family called the police for help when he was having an episode.
On the two-week anniversary of his murder, on the spot where he was gunned down, we will gather with friends and family to remember Dion and to demand justice for him and all victims of police terror.
We must come together to demand Officer Jeff Motz be charged with murder and fired before he kills again.
When: Tuesday, April 26th, 2016, 6pm
Where: The site of his murder, 14th and Bannock
