Mariano is my husband. He is the father of my 1 year old son, who celebrated his 1st birthday 4 days before his father was brutally and wrongfully killed. We have been together for 2 1/2 years and he is the gentlest, kindest, most peaceful and loving man I have ever known. I believe that what Sheriffs reports are saying is a bunch of lies. I dont understand how this happened. I have many doubts in my mind and mostly my heart around everything that has to do with my husband's killing. He was shot probably 8 or more times, in the legs, the stomach, his leg and arm were broken and to finish him off I guess, they shot him in the back, but not straight on, sideways, the bullet severed his spinal column and broke his back. I already have an excellent lawyer and I have just arrived back in the states after a two week stay in Mexico. I helped return him to the land where he was born to bury his lifeless body. A wish he had expressed to me a year before. This can't keep on like this. People being killed because they are here yes, illegally, but most are here to work and to try and make a life for themselves and their families.
This is from a July 6, 2005 PLAZOID. The Plazoid was a brilliant independent, self-published pamphlet/zine that circulated in Arcata in the mid 2000's.
SOON Nazi authorities and the police began to consign members of other groups to the new camps: homosexual men arrested as criminal offenders; Jehovah's Witnesses who refused to obey demands to cease their activities; women accused of prostitution; people labeled "asocial" because they were homeless, begged, or for some other reason did not fit into Nazi society.

Here's what happened at the hearing on our murder complaints, no surprise. This explains why MOVE takes the position we do against this rotten system, and why anybody that stills has faith in it is foolish---Ramona
