Baltasar Rodriguez, III Killed by Police

It is a tragedy when anyone is murdered, but it is especially egregious when the murderers are the very people who are supposed to protect us. My brother, Baltazar Rodriguez, was killed by five police officers, and those officers have not been held accountable for their actions. My brother's death has left our family reeling, and we are determined to get justice. The authorities have tried to sweep his death under the rug, but we will not rest until those responsible are brought to justice. Hiring a private investigator was the best way to ensure that we get answers and hold those responsible accountable.

It took him eight days to tell his mom he was dead. The whole situation is pretty screwed up. I hired a private investigator, a gator, to dive into it, and the things that he found out my gosh.

Starting a fundraiser in my brother's name has been a way for me to keep his memory alive. I want his daughter Charisma to have a college fund, and I want to get some support for his family to help them get a burial plot or a Motilium. I know that he would be thrilled to know that his daughter will be taken care of, and that his family will have the support they need. I hope that by starting this fundraiser, I can make a difference in their lives and help them through this difficult time. Thank you for your support.
