– Against Hired Guns – printable –

Against Hired Guns was a strategy document released in February of 2013, trying to grapple with tying the immediacy of heightened responses to incidents of police violence in Oakland. It was released in response to information regarding the killing of Raheim Brown Jr by an Oakland School Police commander, and it documents some lessons learned from Oakland’s recent history of police killings and community responses. The document is by no means perfect, but offers some important contextual history and poses questions that could be of use in creating strategy out of the ongoing tragedy of the violence of policing.
