March for Kayla Moore, Killed by Berkeley Police

March Calls Attention to Lack of Accountability for In-Custody Death of Kayla Moore
On February 12, Berkeley Police murdered Kayla Moore. Kayla Moore lived with "mental illness" and has been described by friends and family as a Transgender person who "passed as a woman." Berkeley Copwatch writes: "One month later and the Berkeley Police still have not released information as to the cause of Kayla's death, leaving most questions unanswered... Unfortunately Kayla's death is not an anomaly. [On the weekend of March 2 and 3,] Bay Area Police have murdered four people and watched one woman bleed to death after she was attacked by her abusive ex-husband. San Francisco Police murdered Aaron Sawyer (23) after he allegedly stole a car on Saturday morning. San Jose Police murdered a man yet to be identified after they deemed him to be "suspicious." Union City Police shot an unidentified man to death after they pulled him over for an unstated reason. Hayward Police murdered an unidentified man after his car crashed into one of their police cruisers. In the case of Kayla Moore, whether by neglect or intent the result is the same. Kayla Moore is dead. The Berkeley Police killed Kayla Moore."

On March 12, while police and corporate media were largely silent about the death, a nighttime march was held to call attention to the lack of accountability for the in-custody murder in Berkeley.
