Southern Villagers prepare to walk for justice

By Benjamin Flowers
Residents of San Roman and San Jose Village are preparing to hold a peaceful demonstration tomorrow, calling for justice to be served in light of the gruesome double murder of Crisencia and Josephine Oh.
The Walk for Justice is Scheduled to begin with a ceremony on the outskirts of outskirts of San Jose at 3:00 p.m., followed by a candlelight vigil at 4:00 p.m. at the San Antonio football field where the main activity will be held featuring short presentations from community leaders.
The Walk for Justice Organizing Committee is calling on residents of the Toledo district to attend and join the fight to against violent crime in the district.
“This double murder has shocked the nation and has forced us to realize that we cannot be silent in the face of ever-increasing crime and insecurity,” the Committee said. ” Crime affects each and every one of us – old, young, rich, poor- and erodes the fabric of our society; we must unite if we are to prevent such heinous acts in the future.”
The Toledo Alcaldes Association (TAA) has pledged its support to the initiative and have called on other Alcaldes to join in, given the importance of their cause. The Oh sisters were brutally chopped to death on January 21. Police have since charged one man, 20-year-old Wilmer Alexander Escobar for the crime.Oh
