Oakland Police Department Reject ACLU’s Public Records Request

Recently, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Northern California and the National Lawyers’ Guild sent a public record request to the Oakland Police Department (OPD) to probe police brutality that occurred on Oct. 25. The OPD has chose not to release almost all the information requested. “Given the seriousness of what happened on October 25, 2011, the public has a right to full disclosure,” responded the ACLU.
