Baton Rouge, Minneapolis, and San Jose: The Bay Area Reacts To Ongoing Police Violence

Within the past couple of days there has been an uproar of police violence and lives lost, from Baton Rouge, Minneapolis, Fullerton, and sadly right in our city of San Jose. Here are some photos from this week of folks showing up for justice for those who've lost their lives.

Anthony Nuñez was 18 years old when he was shot and killed by SJPD at his home this July 4th. A fund is set up to donat to this family in this time of need at this link.

Family, friends and community have created a memorial in front of his home.
