Justice for Willie McCoy​

Willie McCoy, 20, was the third person killed by the Vallejo police department since 2017. On February 9, police responded to a call from a Taco Bell employee about a driver "slumped over" in the drive-thru line. According to police, McCoy was found unresponsive in his car with the engine running and had a handgun on his lap. Police say they attempted to open the car doors to grab the gun but the doors were locked. When McCoy woke up, police say he did not follow orders "quick enough" and it appeared he motioned his hands down toward the gun. Six officers fired a barrage of bullets – 25 struck McCoy's body.

McCoy's family are calling his death "an execution."

McCoy said, "they [the police] didn't even give him a chance, he had a whole life ahead of him." Many family members say police could have unlocked the car by reaching through McCoy's front passenger window, which was broken and replaced with plastic.
