The trial will begin on Monday, March 7, 2016, for seven activists, Povi-Tamu Bryant, Damon Turner, Jas Wade, Todd Harris, Rosa Clemente, Haewon Asfan, and Frederisha Dixon, who were given misdemeanor charges of obstructing a public street and refusing the lawful order of a peace officer.

On the morning of November 26, 2014, a small group of thoughtful, committed activists from the Black Lives Matter Movement in Los Angeles shut down the 101 freeway.

 

Later we look at the first week of a federal civil trial, filed by Nieto’s family against the four involved officers, featured conflicting versions of the fatal shooting. The officers — Jason Sawyer, Roger Morse, Richard Schiff and Nathan Chew — were responding to a report of a man with a pistol on Bernal Hill in Bernal Heights Park on March 21, 2014.
