Why Stop the “Super Cop”?
Stop the Injunctions Coalition needs your support and action at City Hall Tuesday! The Oakland City Council has started in on business for the New Year and we are greatly concerned with their direction.
One of the first items on Tuesday’s Public Safety Committee Meeting is an item to spend of a quarter million dollars to hire policing consultants William Bratton and Robert Wasserman. STIC is strongly opposed to this contract and we are mobilizing tomorrow to urge Councilmembers to reject this contract.
WHY REJECT THE BRATTON CONTRACT?
REJECT “STOP-AND-FRISK POLICY”!
We can all agree that violence in our communities has taken a horrendous toll on our families, friends, co-workers, and neighbors. Join STIC tomorrow to urge the Council to start this new year by being responsive to our communities’ suggestions and respect our experience in understanding what works to address violence on our streets.
As our past victories in persuading the Council have made clear, it is up to us to ensure that City Hall makes informed decisions and avoids peril when it comes to considering failed, destructive, and expensive quick-fix police schemes.
TUESDAY, JANUARY 15TH @ 5:30PM
Sign up here and fill out a speaker card if you want to voice your opinion at the meeting. We will provide talking points to support you!
