In 2012, Bay Area police have killed at least 12 Black and Brown people.
"In 2012, Bay Area police have killed at least 12 Black and Brown people.

Only 1 officer has ever been convicted of killing a Black or Brown person; Johannes Mehserle, who killed Oscar Grant, served only 11 mos in prison and now wants to return to a law enforcement job.

END RACIAL PROFILING! END STOP & FRISK!!

We will march from 14th & Broadway in Oakland to Oakland Police Department, thru West Oakland neighborhood and back to 14th & Broadway (~ 2 miles).

Alan Blueford, an 18-year-old African American student from Skyline High School, was shot and killed by Oakland Police Officer Miguel Masso on May 6, 2012. The Blueford family and JAB coalition strongly condemn the DA's report and reject all attempts to cover up their son's murder. We demand Masso be fired and prosecuted,
and all racial profiling practices, including stop and frisk, be stopped immediately!

Alan's mother, Jeralynn Blueford, "This is a march in honor of my son and others that has suffered police brutality. We are for change not violence and vandalism."
