Angelo Quinto was a 30-year old veteran who was born in the Philippines. He was honorably discharged from the Navy in 2019 because of a food allergy. He suffered from depression most of his life, but his behavior changed after an apparent assault in early 2020, when he woke up in a hospital not remembering what had happened and with stitches and serious injuries. After that, he began having episodes of paranoia and anxiety. On Decemeber 23rd, 2020, Angelo was suffering a mental health crisis and needed help. As a result, Angelo’s family called 911 who dispatched the police. After arriving, a responding officer knelt on Quinto’s neck for nearly five minutes while another officer restrained his legs. Quinto lost consciousness and was taken by ambulance to a hospital, where he died three days later. A cause of death has not been released by authorities and an independent autopsy is pending. The family filed a legal claim against the Antioch Police Department.
