'Flowers don't kill': Dozens protest in support of woman taken down by Riverside County sheriff's deputy
Citlalli Anahuac, one of the organizers of the protest and friend of the woman, claimed the video did not capture deputies asking the woman about her legal status in this country and demanding that she speak English. She claimed the woman was not read her Miranda rights, nor was she offered a phone call after her arrest, and was detained for six hours.Riverside County Sheriff’s spokesman Deputy Mike Vasquez said the woman was in custody for six hours. She was booked on suspicion of misdemeanor obstruction and resisting arrest. She was issued a citation and released from custody.However, he did not have any information on whether she was asked about her legal status or if she was told to speak English, “because I wasn’t there,” Vasquez said.“We definitely understand the public’s concerns,” he added.People from Perris, Anaheim, Santa Ana, and Hemet attended the protest, which was organized by an indigenous rights group known as the Mexica Movement.Christian Lem, 23, who shot and shared the 43-second video clip on Twitter attended the demonstration. He held a sign that read, “No more racist cops!”Lem said he was walking in the area before deputy “got physical.” He said the deputy was being rude while the woman was trying to explain in Spanish that she did not speak English.“That why I decided to stay,” Lem said. “All I saw was fear in her face.”The video clip was shot June 7 and shows the woman trying to get away from the deputy, who grabs her hair and forces her to the ground. He covers her mouth with one hand and then twists and places her arm behind her back.She was selling flowers and Hawaiian-style leis without a permit outside of Perris High School while motorcycle deputies provided traffic control during the graduation ceremony, according to the Sheriff’s Department news release.The Sheriff’s Department said deputies warned and cited 15 people for vending without the necessary city permits.Mendez-Medrano refused to cooperate and attempted to walk away, the Sheriff’s Department said in the release, which also said she gave fake names and pushed the deputy away. He held her arm to prevent her from fleeing, the statement said.Vito D’Angelo, of Perris, attended the protest in support of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.“I’m not saying every officer is perfect … but neither is every citizen,” D’Angelo said.
