Tue Sep 30 2003Three Oakland Riders Acquitted of Corruption and Brutality
Tue Sep 30 2003Oakland Riders Walk
After what was the broadest case of police corruption cases in Oakland's history of a mostly corrupt police department , jurors acquitted the Oakland Riders on eight counts, while a mistrial was declared on the other 27. Three of four cops (one of whom is believed to have fled to Mexico) stood accused of fabricating evidence, assaulting innocent people, and falsifying reports while they drove the streets of West Oakland in 2000. A new trial on the 27 charges is possible in the future.
A rally has been called by People United for a Better Oakland (PUEBLO) for today, 10/1, outside the Alameda County Courthouse at 1225 Fallon Street in Oakland. Additionally, the International People's Democratic Uhuru Movement is holding a meeting to organize a response to the verdict.
