Mario Romero was 23 years old ,Just 16 days shy of his 24th birthday.He and his brother-in-law had just returned home following the celebration of the two just getting new , promising jobs that would help them better support their families, wives and 3 three children between the both of them. upon returning home they placed a call to open the front door; upon ending the call Mario’s sister went outside to scare them like she always did but upon her arrival to the side of the building she was stopped by a blinding bright light that was shone onto Mario’s car followed by officers exiting from their vehicle yelling “put your hands up!” and a shots fired by one gun before the sentence of “put your hands up!” was finished.
Witnesses recall seeing both men with their hands us pleading for their lives to be spared. family members pleaded with officers to stop shooting the unarmed men. a sort while into the shooting one officer jumped onto the hood of Mario’s car and began to continue shooting to insure that both men were dead.
30+ bullets were unloaded into Mario’s car has he and his family pleaded for Vallejo police to stop. their was NO return fire!..Mario was unarmed. He was shot in the face, in the mouth, hands, wrists,chest, and underarms. following his being shot he was cut from his seatbelt and mutilated by the murdering officers knife, resulting in a gaping hole in his body big enough to put a whole arm and fist into. he was dragged onto the ground , his hands were then zip-tied as the officer pushed his blood from his body. Mario’s dead body which was then removed from the scene of the crime before the coroner could arrive, following the removal of his body a fake gun was planted inside of Mario’s car by Vallejo Police Corporal Stanley Eng, who also stole Mario’s bullet filled & cut seatbelt. The gun that was planted was not just any gun it was a police issued training gun that only law enforcement can be issued. Mario’s body was hidden from his family for a month , delaying his burial, Mario’s family has experienced an abundance of intimidation tactics by the Vallejo Police who have attempted to silence their request for accountability, Vallejo Police have refused to interview witnesses, have admitted that they do not drug test their officers at all following being hired, nor do they psychologically evaluate them.
The Vallejo police have followed, arrested, intimidated, threatened witnesses and friends of Mario with false charges in an attempt to get them to make false stories about Mario. They have illegally raided homes without warrants, with officers tearing down pictures of Mario off of friends walls and urinating on them. The officer that murdered Mario is still patrolling the streets of Vallejo racially profiling and taking pictures of people with his personal cellphone. This officer had a dark past long before he murdered Mario, He arrested a 5 year old boy against the parents will, took him to a mental hospital where he was put on a suicide watch
he has also worked at Vallejo high School where he harassed students, used excessive force as well as tazed multiple stuudents.
Vallejo Police admit that they did not identify themselves, they claim they wanted to make contact with the men
THEY NEVER KNEW WHO MARIO WAS BEFORE THEY MURDERED HIM
