Stolen Lives

Stolen Lives are people who have lost their lives through encounters with law enforcement agencies, including police and highway patrol, sheriff’s departments and jails.  This list is not all-inclusive and is added to regularly through research.  Cases range from 1984 but there is much more information available about cases from 2000 (the year CUAPB formed) through the present. These people can no longer speak for themselves. We must speak for them. 

Cases are listed in alphabetical order by last name.  For more information, contact Communities United Against Police Brutality.
