On December 12, 73-year-old dementia sufferer Francisco Serna left his home in Bakersfield, California, for a late-night stroll. Minutes later, he was confronted by police and shot seven times. Serna died on the scene.
Clearly, Serna was unable to cope with the situation due to his dementia, but what happened next was simply unthinkable. Rather than reaching for a taser or handcuffs, Officer Selma fired seven rounds into the grandfather, killing him instantly.
Now, Serna’s family is searching for answers. Why did their beloved husband, father, and grandfather have to die so senselessly?
