" Once again our community is facing the loss of a community member who should have received help and not been hurt by a law enforcement agency. Alfredo Gonzalez Garza was a man who was suffering from mental health issues and was going through a mental health episode when he was slain by a Houston Police Officer. We continue to push for and amplify policies that will make it easier for people to obtain mental health so they won’t end up in these situations. We feel with for the families and at this time the family has more questions than answers."- Cesar Espinosa Executive Director FIEL
