The Sahleem Tindle family continues to fight for #Justice4Sahleem and demand that #OMalleyChargeMateu with murder. Joseph Mateu is the BART police officer who murdered Sahleem Tindle across from the West Oakland BART station on January 3, 2018. Despite clear video proof that Sahleem was not holding a weapon and was shot in the back, no charges have yet been filed against Mateu. In fact the BART Police Chief is considering Mateu for a promotion.
This is why the family is calling for an 11:30 rally in front of Nancy O'Malley's office at the courthouse on 12th St and Fallon, by Lake Merritt.
They will then march at 1:30 to 2040 Webster St. where the BART Board meetings are held.
There will be a dedication there at 2:30 to the life and spirit of Sahleem Tindle.
The BART Police Citizen Review Board meeting then starts there at 4:00 pm. In addition to public comment, on the agenda is a discussion of "Effect of Pending Internal Investigations on Promotional Opportunities for BPD Personnel" as part of the BART Chief of Police Carlos Rojas' report for "discussion and action". Also on the agenda are "BPD Administrative Leave Process (Criteria for Returning an Officer to Full Duty Pending Completion of an Officer-Involved Shooting Investigation). For Discussion and Ac
tion." and "Use of Force Policy Training Status. For Discussion and Action." Even this item "BPD Media Communications and Information Policy. For Discussion and Action" is relevant as Chief Rojas publicly praised Officer Mateu for "courage" for his murderous actions.
