Jul 17 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
This week, the East Bay Express published the results of a review of civil rights settlements for police misconduct by the Alameda County Sheriff’s Department.

The article describes the brutal and often fatal lawless behavior that has cost us millions of dollars in just the last 3 years. We know that the Alameda County Sheriff and deputies invested heavily in the re-election of incumbent District Attorney Nancy O’Malley to protect and preserve the status quo. We … Continued
