The DOJ is now investigating the fatal beating of Luis Ramirez

July 31st, 2008 · 4 Comments

It is being reported that the FBI and the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division is going to investigate the beating death of Luis Ramirez.

MALDEF supports this federal action, and attorney John Amaya from the organization said, “The significance really rises to the national stage.”

We will continue to report the latest news on this case and others where immigrants and other minorities are needlessly injured and/or killed.

    Let’s see if the FBI actually sends any investigators out there to ask questions. The FBI office in Los Angeles considers Civil Rights investigations low-priority cases. That’s why nothing ever happens. Unless the media pressures it, and the local courts push it, the FBI more or less depends on everyone losing interest.

    This is the same DOJ that is listening to our phone calls, reading our emails, and threatening Google so they can track our internet communications. Oh yeah…I feel real positive some justice will come from this.

    Who is MALDEF kidding? Haven’t they learned anything from the African-American civil rights group’s processes? Who do they think Luis Ramirez is…Dick Cheney’s cousin?

    They should also investigate the death of Edith Isabel Rodriguez.
