tiny doo justice for 33 san diegoSAN DIEGO — It’s an ongoing battle for family and friends of those locked up under a law that makes it illegal to benefit from gang activities, otherwise known as Penal Code 182.5.

A prayer vigil and march took place Sunday night in front of the Superior Court downtown to call for justice for the remaining 33 men still in prison.

About 200 people were in attendance for the “Justice for SD 33? rally.

Some of the keynote speakers included Aaron Harvey and rapper Brandon “Tiny Doo” Duncan.

Duncan made national headlines after he was arrested and jailed for gang conspiracy charges under Penal Code 182.5 for the lyrics of his music.

Back in March, Duncan and Harvey’s charges were dropped.

Now they are fighting for the release of 33 others who were also put behind bars under the same statute. Pastors and family members of the remaining 33 took to the mic and appealed to District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis to get rid of the law.

The District Attorney’s office has said the law is in place to fight against gang violence on San Diego County streets.

A dismissal hearing for the remaining 33 in prison is scheduled for May 7.
