On June 7th, 2019, Emerald Black a pregnant, black woman, and her fiance were pulled over by police officers after coming from a doctors appointment. The reason for being pulled over was for bad registration tags. The officers spoke to Ms. Black's fiance while she stayed in the car. The officers began to order her out of the car. Ms. Black was clearly pregnant and she had let them know that she had just gotten back from a doctors appointment where she was also informed that she was at a high risk for a miscarriage. Despite this, the officers yanked Ms. Black, still in her hospital clothes, and threw her to the ground. They taunted her, piled on top of her, and stomped on her stomach causing her to miscarry. The stomp had  also left a shoe mark. They then arrested her and her fiance and made them spend the whole night in jail while Emerald was miscarrying. 

Because of the abhorrent attacks done by the police, Ms. Black suffered not only physical, but emotional injuries. She lost her unborn child. That is something that she will have to carry the rest of her life. WE ARE DEMANDING AN  INVESTIGATION OF THE SAN LEANDRO PD'S TREATMENT OF EMERALD BLACK. Justice must be brought to Ms. Black. 

Edit: It is also important to note that she was not a suspect to any crime and she clearly did not commit any either.

Edit: I would like to thank everyone who has signed this so far. The fight has not ended, justice has yet to be served.  Please keep sharing her story and share this petition. We shall not give up until justice is brought to Emerald and her Fiance.
