Description

“Justicia Para Todos” — Spanish for “justice for all” — is painted on the pavement. The words are flanked by images of a hand holding a flame, and roses appear between the words.

The word “todos” is dotted with portraits of people killed by police in Utah — including Bernardo Palacios-Carbajal, who was fatally shot by Salt Lake City police on May 23. The portraits are similar to ones painted by anonymous artists in Salt Lake City’s Granary District, on the building that houses city police and fire vehicles. The mural also has splotches of red paint, similar to that left on the street in front of the Salt Lake County District Attorney’s Office in downtown Salt Lake City.

The red paint sends the message that “there is blood on law enforcement hands,” Arellano said on a Facebook video posted by the group Just Media Utah.
