Alan Blueford, an 18-year-old African American student from Skyline High School, was shot and killed by Oakland Police Officer Miguel Masso on May 6, 2012. The Blueford family and JAB coalition strongly condemn the DA’s report and reject all attempts to cover up their son's murder. We demand Masso be fired and prosecuted, and all racial profiling practices, including stop and frisk, be stopped immediately!
END RACIAL PROFILING!

Dear Redwood Curtain Cop Watch,
I just spent four hours in the Willows, CA Court house and am watching the assembly-line of sending people off to prison. I could see the bulk of them are getting sent away because they don't have enough money for anything but a bad public defender.
