Sat Aug 8 2009Williams Family Brutalized During "Routine Traffic Stop"
Sat Aug 8 2009Rally and Court Support for Family Victimized by Albany Police
After being pulled over for a "routine traffic stop" in Albany, Michael and Stephanie Williams report that they were brutalized by the Albany police department on June 5th in front of their children. Michael was tasered multiple times and Stephanie was searched under her clothing by a male officer. Both parents were arrested, while their crying children were picked up by their grandmother. The family spoke about their ordeal at the Uhuru House in East Oakland on June 14th.
A rally was held at the Albany City Council meeting on August 5th in support of the Williams family. Supporters demanded that charges filed against Michael Williams be dropped and that the Albany police department fire officers Michael H. Gibson, Thomas E. Dolter, and Donald J. Maiden.
Michael Williams has a preliminary hearing in Alameda County on Monday, August 10th, for charges related to the Albany police claim that he threatened them. Activists are asking supporters to pack the court room to demand charges be dropped.
