It's been two and a half months since Berkeley resident Kayla Moore died in Berkeley Police custody, after what the police first reported as a call for a mental health evaluation. Moore was an African American transgendered woman. The Berkeley Police still have not released a report. Nor have they lifted their hold on release of the Alameda County Coroner's report on the cause of her death. Berkeley Copwatch will be at the Berkeley City Council meeting Tuesday, 04.30.2013, at 7 pm, to demand that the report be released. Copwatch will also hold a rally outside Berkeley City Hall, beginning at 6 pm.
