Commemorating Zachary Cooke
Protesters, like Marissa Sholes, above, stated that they wanted to reach out to the community and give a voice to those who feel afraid or are threatened by law enforcement and to remember that organizations like Redwood Cop Watch are working towards establishing a police review board to investigate the actions taken by law enforcement that led up to Cooke’s death.
On Jan. 4 2007, Zachary Cooke, age 18, was shot and killed during an investigation into numerous armed robberies committed throughout Humboldt County of which Cooke and several other parties were suspected.
No private family memorial, this is a full blown stunt.
Lots of discussion all week at heraldo's
