Pack the BART Police Citizen Review Commission Meeting: Justice 4 Sahleem


March 12, 2018 @ 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm
BART Boardroom, 20th Street Mall, Third Floor
344 20th St
Oakland, CA 94612

We’re asking everyone who can to support the family of Sahleem Tindle in their struggle to get justice for Sahleem, who was murdered by BART officer Joseph Mateu on January 3, 2018. BART was forced to release the body cam video of his murder, where it was exposed for all to plainly see that 28 year old Sahleem was shot in the back three times with his hands up and no weapon in sight! We have been with the family to two BART Board meetings in the past few weeks, where the family and community have pressed hard to get Mateu fired and charged with murder. Through this effort BART has finally added a point about this added to the BART Police Citizen Review Board agenda on Monday, 3/12 at 4pm. Please help us pack this meeting. See the Facebook event here for further info:

But we’re not stopping there! The family’s demands are to fire, charge and prosecute this murderer! So the next morning, Tuesday, 3/13, at 10am, we’re going to have a talk with DA Nancy O’Malley, who has the power to prosecute him. Mind you, she’s never prosecuted a single killer cop, so we have to press hard to make her break that record. Here’s the event info for that:
Demand DA O’Malley Charge Mateu with Murder

We’re not stopping there, either! OPD is in charge of the investigation, since Mateu murdered Sahleem across from West Oakland BART, not on BART property. So on Tuesday, 3/13, at 6pm, we’re going to visit OPD HQ at Broadway and 7th St to demand that they charge Mateu with murder! The event info for that is here:
Demand OPD Charge Mateu with Murder
