Photos: Alex Landau faces Alex Martinez at Michael DeHerrera police brutality rally
Earlier this week, Alex Landau, who was brutally beaten by police in 2009, expressed frustration about the reinstatement of an officer previously fired in a separate incident involving Michael DeHerrera, and also complained about Manager of Safety Alex Martinez's decision not to meet with him about continuing delays in the investigation of his case.
Big photos below.
Well, today, Landau came face to face with Martinez -- plus Denver mayor Michael Hancock and Denver police chief Robert White -- at a rally decrying brutality.
Participants called for the firing of Officer Randy Murr, who was involved in both Landau's and DeHerrera's pummelings. Our Danielle Lirette captured the drama in vivid photos of the aforementioned attendees, plus Anthony and Denise DeHerrera, Michael's parents, and members of the Colorado Progressive Coalition, who turned out in force. Check them out below, along with a CPC release about the event.
