Jos̩ Campos Torres (December 20, 1953 РMay 5, 1977) was a 23-year-old Mexican-American and Vietnam veteran who was ruthlessly beaten by several Houston Police Department (HPD) officers, which subsequently led to his death. He was assaulted by a group of on-duty police officers after being arrested for disorderly conduct at a bar in Houston's Mexican-American East End neighborhood. The officers convicted for the death of Torres, at the state level, received minimal sentencing; 1 year probation and a $1 fine. Torres' murder and sentencing sparked community outrage and lead to multiple community protests, with one gathering escalating to a riot. His death lead to advocacy based and HPD official's negotiations leading to the addition of policies addressing racial relations.
