400 County Center, 3rd FL DA's Office, Redwood City 94063.
There is security at the Bldg-give yourself time so we can begin at DA's office 3rd FL at 10am.
Contact us if you would like to meet up earlier so we can all walk in together.
It has been over four months since the murder of Chinedu Valentine Okobi at the hands of San Mateo County Sheriff's officers.
Currently, there has been:

No response by the DA to the calls and requests by the SMC community to release the videos, and the 911 calls on Oct 3, 2018.

No corrections of the lies in the first report released by the Sheriff’s Office about Mr. Okobi’s death.

No public statement by the Sheriff or the DA.

No action on, or commitment to, any legislation regarding a moratorium on Tasers by the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors.

No requests by any San Mateo County Supervisors to the DA or Sheriff to release the video, the call logs or correct the lies of the first report by the Sheriff’s office on this death, as we the community have repeatedly requested of them since October 2018.

In addition to this complete disregard for interests of justice, all five (5) deputies are back on duty.

We demand the release of the videos of Okobi's murder and the release of the 911 Call logs, immediately.

It is time to disrupt business as usual at the DA's office!
