This blog is happy to note that the Gutierrez family was able to get justice in civil court. The family and the city of Imperial settled on a payment of $600,000 recently. Edmund Gutierrez Sr., Bubba’s father, and his wife, Lydia made the following statement:
All communities need to take a close look at their taser policies so that fewer unarmed young men are killed.
“We pray that the affirmation of the city’s blame and its substantial cost will encourage the residents and the officials of the city of Imperial to more closely and critically examine the conduct of those empowered by them to enforce the law,” the statement continued.
