We demand that the Mexican Consulate and the Mexican Embassy in Washington D.C. fulfill its duty and promise to represent the case of Luís Góngora Pat before the Department of Justice of the United States of América and the authorities of San Francisco to demand an independent federal investigation and criminal charges against the police officers responsible for the unjustified homicide of Luís Góngora Pat.
Luís Demetrio Góngora Pat was born in Teabo, Yucatan on 4/25/1970; he was 45 years old at the time of his death. A Yucatecan Mayan, he is survived by his spouse, three grown children and his elderly parents in Yucatan, Mexico. Luis is also survived by brothers and cousins in San Francisco. His family called him Luís or by his nickname Sapo.
On April 7, 2016, at 10:04:14a.m., Sergeant Nate Seger and Officer Michael Mellone first fired four bean bag shots, followed immediately by seven bullets at Luis Demetrio Góngora Pat. He was a Mayan-Mexican living in a homeless encampment on Shotwell Street between 18th and 19th Streets in the Mission District of San Francisco. Thirty seconds transpired between the moment that officers arrived on scene and the moment that they killed Luís. By all witness accounts, he was sitting on the ground minding his own business when officers brutally engaged him. A surveillance camera video caught the actions of the officers, as they shoot pointing towards the ground. An independent autopsy reveals a fatal downward shot into Luis’s head.
Join us in crying out against injustice!
Demand that the representation of Mexico in the United States of America fulfill its duty to demand Justice for Luís Góngora Pat!
