To:

  • Nancy O’Malley
    Alameda County District Attorney

CC:

  • Libby Schaaf
    Mayor of Oakland
  • Oakland City Council
  • Alameda County Board of Supervisors
  • Edmund Brown Jr.
    Governor of California

Subject:

We the undersigned members of the public demand that District Attorney Nancy O’Malley direct her office to drop all charges and stop wasting tax-payer money pursuing the Land Action 4 housing activists with trumped-up and spurious felony allegations.

Instead, the Alameda County DA’s office should spend more of its limited public resources on:

  • Pursuing investigations within the public agencies implicated in potential sex trafficking, statutory rape, and sexual misconduct, such as:
    • The Oakland Police Department
    • The Alameda County Sheriffs
  • Investigating all officer-involved deaths and officer-involved shootings.
  • And confronting the true culprits of the current housing crisis by:
    • Indicting landlords who violate tenant law by evading rent control, conducting illegal evictions, and discriminating against renters.
    • Prosecuting slum lords — those especially-exploitative, large-scale property-owners who neglect their properties and tenants to the point of profiting from their human rights violations.
    • Urging lawmakers to close many of the known loopholes in the real property market that let tax evasion and speculation run rampant.
    • Holding public agencies accountable for letting hedge funds, investment banks, developers, and their agents secure free or heavily discounted property for allegedly “non-profit” or “charitable” purposes, when they ultimately provide little to no public benefit and instead reap great profit for their exploitation.
