Annika Nozaki started this petition to Antioch Police Department

Angelo Quinto was undergoing a mental health episode when police officers from the ANTIOCH POLICE DEPARTMENT KNEELED ON HIS KNECK FOR NEARLY 5 MINUTES.

His sister Isabella Collins called police to their Antioch, California, home on December 23 because she feared he would hurt their mother, family lawyer John L. Burris said during a February 18th press conference.

Before police arrived, Quinto's mother had been holding him to her chest with her hands clasped around his back for a few minutes, and "he had already started to calm down" she said. When two officers from the Antioch Police Department arrived, Burris said they made no attempt to understand the situation and instead, immediately grabbed Quinto from his mother's arms.

Quinto lost consciousness and was taken to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead three days later.

Isabella Collins said she called the police in hopes they would de-escelate the situation. "I don't think I will ever not feel bad", she told CNN. "If it was the right thing to do, it wouldn't have killed my brother." 

WE MUST DEMAND JUSTICE FOR ANGELO QUINTO. THE OFFICERS INVOLVED IN HIS MURDER MUST BE CHARGED AND INDITED. FIRE THE OFFICERS FROM THE ANTIOCH POLICE DEPARTMENT WHO MURDERED ANGELO QUINTO!
