In 2002, local police in Baytown, Texas, beat and killed Luis Alfonso Torres, a Mexican contract worker and legal resident. In response, the American Civil Liberties Union partnered with the League of United Latin American Citizens to release a series of posters that connect police violence in Black and Latino communities. This poster displays a video capture of Torres’ death and asks, “How do you say Rodney King in Spanish?”
 “?Como se dice Rodney King en Espanol? Posters promote reform, commemorate Texas victim of police brutality.” American Civil Liberties Union. October 15, 2002. Web.
