Valente Galindo (6514)



12/15/2011: San Jose police chased a suspect into Galindo's home, where Galindo was in his bedroom watching television. The suspect was caught and subdued by officers, but only after he had slid a weapon under the bedroom door. According to the police, Galindo pointed the weapon at them, although DNA and fingerprint analysis contradicts that story. He was shot once in the chest and killed. As of July 2014 the city of San Jose looks likely to settle an excessive force lawsuit with Galindo's family for $900,000. http://www.mercurynews.com/crime-courts/ci_26191151/san-jose-poised-pay-900-000-settlement-proposed
