Arrested at Second #OpBART Protest, Jevon Cochran Committed to Fight Against Police Violence
dave id
Jevon Cochran was arrested at the second #OpBART protest for exercising his First Amendment right to speak out against police violence. After BART police had told demonstrators that raising their voices on the platform of the Civic Center station was an arrestable offense, Jevon led a chant of "No justice, no peace, disband the BART police." He was promptly arrested, removed from the station by BART riot police, and charged with trespassing. Two days later, in the video here, Jevon was interviewed outside of the Oakland Unified School District administration building, as community members were protesting the promotion of Barhin Bhatt to interim chief of OUSD police. Bhatt shot and killed twenty-year-old Raheim Brown in January 2011. Not intimidated by his free speech arrest at #OpBART 2, Jevon Cochran will continue to fight for justice.
