Just wanted to bring an update from the supporters of Lamon Haslip, affectionately referred to as "DaddyO." Stolen far too young, the family has been scrambling to come up with the funds to bury their beloved relative. They received substantial support at a recent carwash, however, earning $1,049 towards the $5,120 necessary for funeral expenses, according to the RipLamonKhiryHaslip facebook page. Another fundraiser, this one a barbecue meal, is being held this Saturday, January 12, at Gateway Park in Moreno Valley (23975 Manzanita Ave, 92557), beginning at 11:AM.
CopWatch IE urges all of our supporters to attend this and future fundraisers for Lamon and all victims of police violence. We also encourage our supporters who use facebook to like and follow the RIP Lamon Khiry Haslip page and to express your solidarity there and on your own blogs, radio shows, and social networking outlets.
