      Oakland, CA

Oakland deserves to be a safe city for all people.  William Bratton's policing models encourage police violence, disproportionately target young Black and Brown men and are not effective crime reduction strategies.  We need solutions for Oakland by Oaklanders.

Join us on Tuesday 1/15 - 5:30pm to tell City Council that we reject William Bratton and his unconstitutional and discriminatory policies.

      "No more violence and killing our children, from Oakland Police Department!" Enough is Enough, stop the discrimination and profiling of black and brown people within the marginalized communities.

      This man wants to turn our young people in to game for the OPD to hunt down capture and or Kill. He wants to look for gang members where none exists. We don't have a gang problem we have a gun problem in our community. Yet, the guns, which contain serial numbers, continue to show up in the hands of criminals. What I want to know is how many cities have portfolio's that include Gun Manufacturers and Private Prisons. In Oakland, if my grandson and his cousin are walking down the street they can be targeted as gang members. Most parents teach their children the buddy system so they will not be targeted. What is wrong with that picture? Why can't our young people use the same buddy system that every other community uses. Alan Blueford was standing with friends when he was shot and killed by OPD. He was not with a gang, they were standing outside waiting for a ride. Oscar Grant was with his friends when he was murdered by BART Police. He was not with a Gang. This Super Cop wants to suspend laws for our young people in Oakland, and bring in Stop and Frisk and laws that allow more Police Contact. That sounds a lot like a Police State to me! Oh that is right they have all of those Private Prisons to fill up! The Taxpayer money should not be used to pay for someone who is going to allow more harassment of folks in our community. Send him back to clean up the messes he left in other cities!

      There are much better ways to use $250,000. We have too many consultants as it is. We should first get the Compliance Director on board and he should be involved in choosing any consultants, if any are required.

      Fire Coward Jordan now, don't. Pay Bratton to racially profile Oakland. Stop & Frisk puts arbitrary power in the hands of a hostile community occupying force
