Alameda City Council to Consider Excessive Force Claim Against Police

In a special closed-session meeting tomorrow night, Alameda City Council will consider claims filed against the city asserting that Alameda police officers used excessive force in an arrest.

Michael Mims and Elijah Mims have filed damages claims against the City of Alameda claiming that Alameda police “used excessive force in applying handcuffs.”

Despite assertions in the official public notice of the special meeting that copies of the claims are available for public inspection, city officials have not yet responded to Action Alameda News’ requests for a copy of the claim, so no other details on the incident are available.

The special meeting begins at 6:00 p.m. tomorrow, January 3rd, 2012, in room 391 at Alameda City Hall.
