Mother of Oakland man murdered by OPD speaks at Poor People March

A contingent from Oakland joined the Poor People Campaign's "Poor People's March" from Baltimore to DC.

One of the speakers at the closing rally was a woman from all the way out in Oakland whose sun was shot by Oakland cops after running from an incident that did not involve him in any way. According to her, his last works were "why did you shoot me?" She is demanding that the cop who murdered her son be sent to prison, saying a 25 year sentence would be about right.

She warned Obama to do something about killer cops in Oakland, and the Oakland Mayor to do the same, or they would both lose their jobs the way the Oakland police chief and his deputy police chief both did.
