An Interview with the Mother of Kenneth Harding

July 31, 2011

Interview with Denika Chatman on her son’s recent killing by San Francisco Police Department for not paying his $2.00 train fare. His slow death, and the lack of medical assistance provided, was well documented on civilian video recordings at the scene. His mother recounts her son’s life, and her relations with the police, including a SWAT team that was sent to her house following the killing:


“The way that the police have been talking to me, degrading me – they feel like they have the right to do it to me.”


Interview by Natasha Reid for the SF Bayview Newspaper.
