Every 36 hours in the US, a Black person is killed by law enforcement.
In 2012, Bay Area police have killed at least 12 Black and Brown people.
Only 1 police officer has ever been convicted in California of killing a Black or Brown person. Johannes Mehserle, who killed Oscar Grant, served only 11 months in prison and now wants to return to a law enforcement job.
Alan Blueford, an 18-year-old African American student from Skyline High School, was shot and killed by Oakland police officer Miguel Masso on May 6, 2012. The Blueford family and Justice 4 Alan Blueford coalition strongly condemn the DA's report and reject all attempts to cover up their son's murder. We demand Masso be fired and prosecuted, and all racial profiling practices, including stop and frisk, be stopped immediately!
