Letter to Kamala Harris: Do Your Job! Prosecute Killer Cops!
Ten Arrested During Protest at California Attorney General Kamala Harris' Oakland Office
On February 13, a protest of more than one hundred people, including dozens of family members of Californians murdered by police, was held outside Attorney General Kamala Harris’ office at the State Building in Oakland in order to deliver a letter to Harris. Family members from the following police murder victims were present at the protest: Alan Blueford, Oscar Grant, Gary King, Jr., James Rivera, Jr., Ernest Duenez, Jr., Kenneth Harding, Kayla Moore, Lamarr Alexander, Andy Lopez, Jessie Hamilton, and Mario Romero. The demonstration ended with ten arrests when protesters refused to vacate the lobby of the State Building, insisting on first speaking to a representative of Harris’ staff.

The letter to Attorney General Harris began:

On behalf of the Justice for Alan Blueford Coalition, we request that you exercise your authority to open a criminal investigation into the killing of Alan Blueford by Oakland Police Officer Miguel Masso on May 6, 2012. Despite overwhelming evidence that Officer Masso committed multiple acts of misconduct in connection with Alan's death, the Alameda County District Attorney has failed to initiate criminal proceedings and has instead exonerated Officer Masso without conducting any meaningful inquiry into his actions.
