Demand DA O'Malley Charge Mateu for Sahleem's Murder

We're asking everyone who can to support the family of Sahleem Tindle in their struggle to get justice for Sahleem, who was murdered by BART officer Joseph Mateu on January 3, 2018. BART was forced to release the body cam video of his murder, where it was exposed for all to plainly see that 28 year old Sahleem was shot in the back three times with his hands up and no weapon in sight! We have been with the family to two BART Board meetings and a BART Police Commission Meeting in the past few weeks, where the family and community have pressed hard to get Mateu fired.

The family's demands are to fire, charge and prosecute this murderer! On Tuesday, 3/13, at 10am, we're going to have a talk with DA Nancy O'Malley, who has the power to prosecute him. Mind you, she's never prosecuted a single killer cop, so we have to press hard to make her break that record. Here's the event info for that:
