Placentia Police Dept. (corner of Chapman & Kramer)

401 Chapman

Placentia, CA

Take the 5 to the 57 North

Exit Chapman and go EAST

The police station is on the left hand side on the corner of CHAPMAN and

Kramer

"At times when we are under the hands of higher authority - as residents and

citizens our rights can be diminished at any given moment"

-Roger Nicanor

DEMANDS FROM PLACENTIA RESIDENT TO THE PLACENTIA POLICE DEPARTMENT

1) Make public all statistics and numbers of complaints that are filed

against Placentia PD on a regular basis

2) Russle Rice who is chief of police needs to immediately meet with

residents and victims of police abuse to discuss police harrasment,

brutality, misconduct, and abuse

3) Allow for a civilian police commission to be placed over the Placentia PD

to be able to operate as a review board

4) Investigate ALL police misconduct reports and complaints that are filed

against the Placentia PD

5) Stop the racial profiling, brutality, harassment, and targeting of South

Placentia residents. Police abuse and misconduct targets South Placentia

over North Placentia (South Placentia is a predominantly people of

color/working class community)

"I have no idea why they are targeting us, I have no idea why I can't walk

down the street, or my 10 year old brother can't go outside without having

the police ask him what gang he belongs to"

Mishy Rodriguez

"Even the children are scared of these racist cops, even they know that

something is wrong in Placentia, because all they have to is wake up in the

morning and look around and they can see what is happening in all over their

neighborhoods"

Naui Huitzilopochtli



Olga Vega, a 45 year old Placentia Resident, will give testimony as she has

witnessed the police brutality in her community for many years and now she

speaks for those whom are unable.

Roger Nicanor, a 19 year old Santa Ana Resident, will give testimony in his

recent incident with the PPD at a private gathering in Placentia which led

to a police raid and arrest of many young men and women whose civil rights

were violated.

Mishy Rodriguez, a 22 year old College Student from Placentia has repeatedly

seen both young and old people in her community being pulled over and even

as recently as 5 weeks ago has seen the beating of a young women in her

neighborhood of South Placentia. She is sick of this happening, and believes

that residents need to come together to only educate themselves but actually

start empowering one another and themselves. "There is no reason why we

should be ashamed or scared like this"

Others will speak upon how Immigrant and Indigenous Women do not feel safe

in their communities in Orange County due to the INS' involvement with

the Anaheim Police Dept.

THIS EVENT IS A PEACEFUL POLICE BRUTALITY PROTEST, ONE ORGANIZED NOT BY ANY

ORGANIZATION BUT ACTUALLY PUT ON BY THE COMMUNITY ITSELF FOR THE COMMUNITY.

WE ASK THAT PEOPLE RESPECT THIS, AND KEEP THIS A PEACEFUL EVENT. THERE WILL

BE CHILDREN AND MANY FAMILIES PRESENT, SO PLEASE KEEP THE DRAMA AND ANY

PERSONAL IDEOLOGY AND WAYS OF BRINGING FORTH ACTION OUT OF THIS EVENT. THIS

IS A PEACEFUL EVENT TO BRING TOGETHER THE ORANGE COUNTY COMMUNITY AGAINST

POLICE ABUSE.
