Description
Just after midnight on May 6, 2012, Oakland police officer Miguel Masso shot and killed Alan Blueford. Blueford and his two friends were waiting to be picked up after watching the Floyd Mayweather fight, when a police patrol car pulled up with its lights off. Blueford ran and Masso chased him, then shot him. The county's District Attorney's office found that Masso had sufficient evidence to chase down Blueford, including that he was holding a gun. Yet, many eye witnesses claim that Blueford was not doing anything suspect. This sticker advertises a protest event on behalf of Alan Blueford. It specifically asks Kamala Harris, the Attorney General of California at the time, to prosecute Officer Masso. The sticker also shows a black-and-white photograph of Alan Blueford, smiling and looking directly at the viewer. Next to his photo is a silhouette of a police officer with his baton raised, poised to hit a figure, whose hands are visible to the viewer, but they are raised in defense. Across this scene is the iconic "no" symbol of a circle with a line through it. Both the context of this poster and the graphic image of a police officer beating a figure grapple with police brutality. Additional text includes: BBQ @ Arroyo Park -- Sat 4/13, 1-4p -- Oakland
