Protesters Challenge Sonoma Officials on Andy Lopez Case

Protesters crowded a Sonoma County Board of Supervisors meeting Tuesday demanding action in the case of Andy Lopez, the 13-year-old slain by a Sonoma County sheriff's deputy in October. Meanwhile, Lopez's parents amended the complaint in their lawsuit against the county, claiming that the deputy had a history of using excessive force, held extremist views, and had publicly advocated problematic policing tactics.
