Published on Nov 19, 2015Rodrigo was seriously injured by Toronto Police Service (TPS) officers on November 6, 2015. He died the following day in hospital.
The TPS did not secure the scene and the Special Investigations Unit (SIU) did not show up at the apartment where he was injured until almost 4 days later. The SIU only put out a media release yesterday - until that time no government agency had acknowledged the injuries caused by police or the death. Makes me wonder how many other people are killed by police and the public is not informed?
This appears to be another sad situation where people reach out to the police for help, and instead of providing for safety and security, the police kill someone.
The family has released surveillance video and other details of the case which I have posted onto youtube:
