NO TANKS, AR15s or TACTICAL TROOPS TO EVICT MOMS & BABIES!

For years, the Alameda County Sheriff's Office (ACSO) has been the source of questionable, if not criminal behavior. "Alameda County has the highest jail death rate in the Bay Area, and a higher jail death rate than Los Angeles, the largest jail system in the United States." According to KTVU’s Investigative reporting, a review of autopsies dating back five years shows that 2019 tied for being the deadliest at Santa Rita since 2014. 

It should be no surprise that ACSO would use the kind of aggressive, militaristic force they used to evict mothers and children from a previously vacant home on Tuesday, January 14th. Drones, tanks, endless police vans full of troops, fatigued officers, SWAT/riot police, a robot and battering ram where used to carry out a pre-dawn raid at a home in a residential neighborhood where ACSO thought children were present.

WE DEMAND ACCOUNTABILITY
