Anti-War

Fri Apr 23 2004 (Updated 04/01/07) Charges Dropped against Oakland 25 Protesters
More than a year after the community picket to shut down War Profiteers of the Oakland Port, charges have been dropped against all protesters. The district attorney's office claims the charges were dropped because the protesters haven't been rearrested during the subsequent year, and the Oakland Police Dept. changed their crowd control tactics.

The DA is behaving as if the arrested individuals committed a crime by standing out at the docks with signs, and they are being let off with a warning. But there is no evidence available for the DA to use to convict the protesters. And neither the OPD nor the police review commision have done anything regarding the violence used by the OPD against protesters. Article by Jack Heyman
