I am a Berkeley based freelance writer and have written an article that was published in East Bay Express about police training for critical incidents when using lethal force. ( http://www.eastbayexpress.com/eastbay/racial-bias-exists-can-we-train-cops-to-deal-with-it/Content?oid=1371014) I am working on an article about witnesses to this shooting: how have they been changed by witnessing this event? How are they feeling/thinking about the police? the judicial system since this event? email mickydux [at] earthlink.net

Who's putting this together? It seems strange that there's not even a protest march, not even a "rally," but instead a vigil. It also seems strange to put everyone in a building in the evening for some music when the struggle against police/state violence is a struggle in the streets. Why aren't people gathering on 14th and Broadway where much brutality happened?
