Cover-Up in Oakland

February 26, 2010

From the Chronicle:


“Oakland police concocted false and “ridiculous” stories in an apparent cover-up of the alleged beating of a drug suspect who died less than a month after his 2000 arrest, a federal judge has ruled.


Department officials, including the sergeant who led the homicide investigation, “stonewalled” the mother of Jerry Amaro when she tried to learn how her 35-year-old son had died after being arrested in a drug sting, U.S. District Judge William Alsup of San Francisco said in ruling that her lawsuit against the city could proceed to trial.”




Hopefully, OPD will be held accountable.
