Police Shoot Double Amputee in L.A. County – Activists demand Justice

Anthony Lowe Jr. Was Shot and Murdered by Coward Dirty Pigs with Psychological issues!

 

Activists outraged over the shooting death of a 36-year-old double amputee demanded justice and accountability Monday.

The Coalition for Community Control Over the Police and the family of Anthony Lowe Jr. held a news conference to bring awareness to Lowe’s death.

“He was loved,” his cousin, Ellakenyada Gorum, said as she sobbed. “And it’s sad how these police are getting away with killing our African American people. Just getting away with it. He was in a wheelchair. What more could he do? What more could he do?”

Lowe’s mother also spoke at the news conference, which was held outside the Huntington Park Police Department.

“They murdered my son, in a wheelchair with no legs,” said Dorothy Lowe. “They do need to do something about it.”

A spokesperson for the family said both of Lowe’s legs were amputated at the knees. He was undergoing a mental health crisis when he was shot to death by Huntington Park police Thursday, the spokesperson said.
