Wed Feb 20 2008 (Updated 02/24/08) Berkeley Grandmother Slain by Berkeley Police Officer
Thursday Night Memorial for Anita Gay, Woman Killed by Berkeley Police Family and friends of Anita Gay gathered on Thursday February 21st at the South Berkeley Community Church (at 1802 Fairview Street) to celebrate her life and to share concerns about police conduct in Berkeley. Anita Gay, a long-term Berkeley resident and beloved neighborhood grandmother, was shot dead by a Berkeley Police officer on February 16th at her home on Ward Street. She is survived by her six children, grandchildren, relatives, and neighborhood community. Family and community members have organized the creation of the Justice for Anita! Justice for All Campaign! to press the City Council to take action to address residents' concerns about the conduct of BPD. Although many are shocked and angry about what happened and they are prepared to protest this outrage, they focused on supporting Gay's family and celebrating the woman on February 21st.
