In the midst of a series of high-profile shootings of unarmed black men by law enforcement officers in Oakland, the NAACP California held a forum today to address alleged police brutality. Attendees included Ron Dellums, Jean Quan, Police Chief Anthony Batts, and NAACP President Benjamin Jealous. Here's a report from KQED's Cy Musiker:
One of those Cy talked to was a criminal defense attorney from Richmond named Linda Fullerton.
Fullerton explained that she counsels her clients to "keep your mouth shut, keep your hands out so that the police can tell you're not reaching for a weapon. Act like the puppy with the tail between your legs so you do not appear at all dangerous."
