My name is Melissa Green and I am the mother of Brandon Saenz.  Brandon is my only son, will always be the baby you see on the right, and sadly his life has forever been changed. On Saturday, May 30, 2020, Brandon was walking to get something to eat in downtown Dallas, and encountered protesters as he walked.  Police officers began walking towards the protestors and with no warning or provocation, they opened fire on the crowd and struck Brandon in his left eye.  Brandon had broken no laws.  Brandon had to undergo surgery where they were unable to salvage his eye and had to remove it.  My son’s entire left side of his face was broken including his nose and jaw. On Wednesday, his 26th birthday, he was released from the hospital and was simply just grateful to be alive.  The officer that committed this heinous crime has been protected by law enforcement and therefore we are unable to hold them accountable at this moment.  Brandon has been permanently maimed and is now disabled.  He has a long way to go with medical and life expenses.  We acknowledge that times are tough and appreciate anything that you can donate for my son.  Thanks you for all of the messages of encouragement as well.  TY SINCERELY BRANDON SAENZ AND FAMILY
