An online petition has been set up urging Palm Spring officials to hold two officers accountable for the death of Nov. 10 killing of Camp Pendleton Marine Cpl. Allan DeVillena II, 22, of San Jose.
Police say he was one of two visibly drunk Marines who had assaulted two Palm Springs police officers and that he later accelerated his vehicle towards one officer while another was partially inside the passenger side window.
The petition alleges the use of force was unnecessary. So far, 316 people have signed the petition.
