Sandy Police

Sandy Police
I am going to try and meet with Carlos's father, Juan this week and try to put this together, I will post my findings here. This man is a vetran, I mean a seriuos vetran from Veitnam, not a gulf war vetran with video game-like battles. His story is amazing.

He has been holding one man protests in Sandy. I have never met a man so brave, but I guess this is about his child, and when that is taken what else is left? He needs some real help. I feel bad because he has tried to get me invoved, but I still have not gotten any kind of peace or closure with my cousin Fouad. He deserves so much more from everyone.

Like I said, I will try to post this story this week, if you think you can help or have some info, or would like to work with me on putting this together, please e mail me.

Mr. Rubio has been parking his protest truck (with signs) each morning before 9am on the corner of Proctor and Bluff. If you see him there, please give him a honk and a wave - at the very least - to show his son hasn't been forgotten. Thanks.
