Immediately Terminate APD Officer Shalin Oza...

On September 5th 2016, Asheville Police Officer Shalin Oza physically assaulted a mixed-race 16 year old female at Hillcrest Apartments by violently slamming her to the ground. The video of the incident went viral and was seen around the world.

On January 30th, 2017 Officer Oza once again found himself at the center of a controversial viral video. This time he was filmed brandishing an AR-15 assault rifle and threatening underage black children in a crowded residential neighborhood, just yards away from a school.

After several official complaints to the Department about this officer have gone unanswered, the time has come to demand Oza's termination from his position at the Asheville Police Department due to a history of unprofessionalism and failure to uphold the Department's Code of Conduct and Use of Force policy. This change will protect the citizens of the City of Asheville from his reckless and dangerous behavior.
