Thursday, 6:00pm, Nationwide Vigil for Christian Hall
San Francisco Civic Center
A multi-city national vigil to honor Christian Hall on the 1 year anniversary of his passing.
Christian Hall was adopted from China by multiethnic parents, Fe Hall (Filipina-American) and Gareth Hall (African-American), shortly before his first birthday.
Christian Hall, a 19 year old Chinese American teen, experienced a mental health emergency on December 30, 2020. Pennsylvania State Police were called by Christian as a cry for help. The police were called on a suicide call and were supposed to help de-escalate the crisis. But rather than providing aid or assistance, the troopers shot and killed Christian.
Christian was alone on the bridge and holding a pellet gun. The police shot at him twice with missing the first round due to the far distance.
As soon as the first round was shot, Christian put his hands up in the air in an act of surrender as he stood on the SR-33 southbound overpass to I-80, posing no threat to the armed officers who at a distance 70 ft away protected behind their police vehicles. And then a police commands another officer: “If he doesn’t drop the gun, take him out”.
