The Justice 4 Alan Blueford coalition is hosting a community BBQ in Arroyo Park on Saturday, April 13th. We hope you’ll come out with friends and family to eat, play, and connect as we build the strength of our community.
Expect delicious home-cooked food, great music, powerful speakers, kid-friendly activities, a nurse’s station – all donated to this community event in honor of Alan Blueford, a Skyline High School student who was murdered by OPD Officer Miguel Masso almost one year ago on May 6th, 2012.
Please join us in demanding the arrest of Officer Miguel Masso for the murder of Alan Blueford, and an end to racial profiling and violent, unaccountable police in Oakland.
Officer Masso must be fired because factual evidence exists that:
- he participated in an illegal ‘Stop & Frisk,’ precipitating Alan’s death
- he did not activate his lapel camera as required by OPD protocols
- he executed Alan Blueford, firing three shots at someone who was unarmed
- he lied after the fact about the events of May 5th & May 6
- he should never have been hired in the first place because of his NYPD record
- he refused a prisoner medical treatment, as documented by NYPD Internal Affair
- he is not psychologically fit to be a police officer, as evidenced by his own statements in the District Attorney’s report
