After filing a lawsuit against the Pomona P.D for punching him in the face while handcuffed (which was filmed and can still be seen on Youtube) Andy Avila was later visited by Police Officers (which allegedly wanted the phone that had filmed them hitting him). After he did not cooperate he was shot and murdered in an alley behind his residence. The murder of Andy Avila led to a Federal Investigation of the Pomona Police Department. His family is still seeking justice for his murder. #JusticeForAndy
In 2013, there were 29 people murdered in the city of Pomona,CA.
This song is dedicated to not only the people involved in the stories mentioned but Mike Brown, Oscar Grant, Treyvon Martin, and the countless other young men and women that have fell victim to police “wrong-doings”. Stay strong.
“I wanted to use situations that have affected my life to shed light on something that can no longer be ignored. This song is based on actual events. The events are not related, but they all did take place in the city of Pomona,CA. I was in someway connected to each of the individuals whose stories get mentioned in this song.” – 60 East
