Protesters occupied Alameda County Superior Court courthouse in Oakland on Monday, to demand justice for Sahleem Tindle, who was shot dead by a Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) officer in January 2018.
«Today's is my son's birthday,» Sahleem Tindle's mother Yolanda Banks Reed said leading the protesting crowd.
«Today he would have been 29, had he not been murdered by the hands of BART officer... Еще Joseph Mateu,» she added as she headed protesters occupying the second floor of the courthouse.
«I am sorry that Nancy O'Malley decided she's gonna go on with business as usual as police officers across Alameda County continue to kill black and brown people,» founder of Anti Police-Terror Project (APTP) Cat Brooks said speaking of the county's district attorney who had failed to provide any info regarding the case for the protesters.
The protesters later took to the streets to march and chant.
The 28-year-old was shot three times in the back by Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) officer Joseph Mateu. Police had initially claimed the victim was armed, but this was later dismissed as body camera footage proved otherwise.
