Eight Grader Killed For Starting a Fight

It would have been just a teenage brawl if it weren’t for the cop Daniel Alvarado whose overreaction and disobeying orders caused the loss of a young life. The 14-year-old Derek Lopez, a student of Bexar County Juvenile Justice Academy, started a fight with another student at the bus stop. He hit the boy once when he was spotted by Alvarado cruising in a patrol car.

The cop told Lopez to freeze, but the boy panicked and ran away. Instead of remaining at the crime scene and interrogating the victim like his supervisor ordered him, Alvarado ignored the order, got the attacked boy in the car and started the pursuit.

A neighbor saw Lopez run and hide into a backyard shed and alarmed Alvarado, who got out of the car with a gun in his hand and entered the shed. Seconds later, Lopez was killed with a single shot and Alvarado got out claiming he was attacked.


Although the autopsy showed no trace of close range shooting and no gun powder on the boy’s clothes, the police department ruled this as a justified shooting. Alvarado, who has been suspended four times in the past, remained on the force facing no criminal charges.

It seems like the cold blooded murder of a 14-year-old boy is acceptable just for the fact that he was a juvenile delinquent.

    Since when does cops make rulings? since when do cops get to “judge” themselves and bypass jury’s?

    That is such bullshit it is ass-nine, the police department needs to be charged for for overthrowing the judicial courts with their fascism!

    People stand trial in criminal courts, cops auto rule themselves and bypass courts, man they could just do whatever they want to then and people no longer have a way to hold their servants accountable in a criminal court room anymore!

    Cops have now become the judge, jury, and executioner wrapped into one.

    The fascists have taken over this country and people are so dumbed down they cannot see the fascism right in front of their faces anymore it is so sad.

    My heart goes out to the victims and I support the prosecution of the police involved in the killing and cover up of the cops crimes through judicial overthrow and denial of due process and the right to be heard in a court of law.

    Acting under color of law is illegal and police are impersonating court rooms to deny people their rights under the law.
