Rally held for Blueford in Oakland
OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- The family of Oakland teenager - Alan Blueford who died May 6 after being shot by Oakland police - held a rally Saturday against police tactics they say led to the deadly confrontation.
They rejected last month's findings by the Alameda County District Attorney that the shooting was justified with no charges filed against the officer.
At the rally, Blueford's parents discussed an independent analysis of the case conducted by Bay Area Civil Rights lawyers.
They blame the deadly confrontation on the police department's use of racial profiling.
The rally started at noon. People marched from 14th and Broadway through downtown Oakland.
