ACLU sues Hayward over fee for body camera footage of Black Lives Matter protest

Posted By Administration, Friday, September 18, 2015

The ACLU sued the city Tuesday over what it calls excessive charges for police body camera footage requested under the state Public Records Act.

The city billed the National Lawyers Guild almost $3,000 for footage from the Dec. 6 Black Lives Matter protest in Berkeley where several demonstrators were injured.

Hayward police took part in crowd control during Black Lives Matter demonstrations in Berkeley and Oakland in December. The demonstrators were protesting grand juries that did not indict officers involved in the deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, and Eric Garner in New York.
