Santa Cecilia is a neighborhood in the northwest of Bogota (Colombia), in the town of Engativá. This is where the cab driver Javier Ordóñez, 44 years old, who was about to receive his law degree after studying aeronautics, lived. His two sons, aged 11 and 15, lived with him. Their mother has emigrated to Barcelona. On the night of Tuesday, September 8, Javier was in the apartment drinking with two more friends, they all went out, to buy drinks. Two policemen from the Villa Luz Immediate Action Command (CAI, as they call the rapid intervention squads) intercepted him for “violation of the quarantine”. The rest can be seen in a video recorded by neighbors. The police officers tased him to death.

 The video provoked a wave of indignation, which was expressed on the following day and night with rallies and attacks on CAI precincts in 26 cities in Colombia. The result was 8 dead and 55 wounded, all by police bullets. Ivan Duque, elected president of Colombia, declared:

    “As a society we must demand zero tolerance for human rights abuses by members of the public force who have historically been dedicated, gallant, and self-sacrificing with a culture of respect for the citizen.

    “We have witnessed painful events today but also the gallant, iron-clad attitude of the Defense Minister's commanders to advance the investigations and apply the necessary sanctions”

The two police officers were suspended and the Inspector General of Police, General William Salamanca Ramirez, was appointed to take over the investigation. The Attorney General's Office also opened an investigation.
