A Step on the Road for Civil Rights in Berkeley

On February 14, the Coalition for a Safe Berkeley brought some 25 speakers to press the City Council to protect civil rights and civil liberties in its police policies. Council asked the Police Department and the civilian Police Review Commission to evaluate our recommendations report back by May 15.

See here for my view of the outcome, as published in the Berkeley Daily Planet.

Also see this article in Saturday's Daily Cal with extensive quotes from Berkeley City Councilmember Jesse Arreguin and me, on the campaign to ban intelligence sharing by the BPD on legal activities.
