Anti-Racism Rally Demands Justice for Pazo
An anti-racism protest was held on May 1 outside EPS headquarters. The rally was in support of Pazo, a 14-year-old Black boy who was hospitalized following an attack on school grounds by a group of other boys, and which included racial slurs hurled at Pazo. Speakers were especially taking issue over Chief McFee’s comments that the fight did not constitute a hate crime and was “consensual.” Around 100 people attended.
