Sergio had a history that included police brutality because of his mental illness. The video below captured a police beating that occurred when Sergio was only 21 and had just learned that his father died. He went into a psychiatric crisis and was walking down the middle of the street. Police beat him viciously and arrested him. See YouTube video http://youtu.be/dSUxzB3G1vw . Sergio mother had to pay $1,500 for Sergio's bond, because he was charged with disorderly conduct.
DESCRIPTION: Officer Eric Bruss from the Santa Fe Police Department is caught on tape here beating an unarmed Hispanic man. Eric Bruss has been in the news various times for his conduct as a police officer. This Hispanic man was given $125,000 for taking the beating in this video.
Both interviews and Sergio's photo were apparently surreptitiously removed from the Google+ community for "Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill" at
Mentally Ill Americans Need Dog Justice. Treat mental illness medically, not legally. Please advocate for your congresspersons to pass H.R.3717 - The "Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act." Try to elect people who support human rights and justice for all, not prison investors who have a conflict of interest in voting to decriminalize mental illness in the United States of America, an equal opportunity nation.
