Esteban CARPIO



Esteban Carpio was led into court on April 18, 2005 wearing what officials described as a ‘‘spit shield’’
intended to protect others from blood and other fluids. Providence police say Carpio was injured
when he jumped out a window and in a struggle with police. Relatives allege police brutality.
