ACLU Sues Oakland Police Department to Stop Violence Against Protesters

ACLU Sues Oakland Police Department to Stop Violence Against Protesters (click here to read the article from ACLU)

The Oakland Police Department (OPD) was sued in federal court yesterday by the ACLU of Northern California and the National Lawyers Guild for trampling (repeatedly!) on the constitutional rights of Occupy Oakland demonstrators. The lawsuit asks for an immediate relief from the court to stop police violence against political protesters, because the OPD has shown that it will continue to violate protesters’ rights unless a court intervenes (again).
