Battle for victims’ rights lands in Susanville

Tuesday, May 19, 2015 — The Archangels of Justice — veteran former police officers Salvatore E. Rastrelli and Ira B. Robins — have launched a national campaign to establish a protocol for police investigations of crime scenes and holding police officers who do not do their duty accountable.
    Last week Susanville became the latest battleground in the archangels’ effort as they brought attention to the local police department’s investigation into the 2011 death of Susanville resident Angel Siler, 23.
    Rastrelli said the archangels have filed four civil rights affidavits with the department of justice from cases they’ve investigated across the country so far, and seven more are in the works. Eventually they plan to take their campaign to Washington, D.C. in order to get a federal department of justice protocol in place and then hold officers who do not honor their oath to serve and protect by not conducting a proper crime scene investigation accountable.
