City of Alameda Unresponsive on Claims of Excessive Force Against Alameda Police

So far, the City of Alameda has not yet responded to three public records requests for copies of claims filed against the city charging that Alameda Police used excessive force in making an arrest.

As reported previously, Alameda City Council considered in closed session on January 3rd claims for damages filed by Michael Mims and Elijah Mims in which they asserted that Alameda police “used excessive force in applying handcuffs.” Such claims are typically precursors to a lawsuit.

No other information was available in the meeting notice published by the city before January 3rd, and no information has been forthcoming from the city despite three separate requests for copies of the claims, and despite statements in the public notices that copies of the claims were available from the City of Alameda.

The most recent unanswered request was sent through Alameda Deputy City Manager and Public Information Officer Alex Nguyen on Friday, February 6th. In all three cases, the City of Alameda has not yet produced the documents nor explained that they need 10 days or longer to respond.

    Alameda cops are out of hand in a lot of ways. I actually got stopped about 10 years ago by an Alameda cop who didn’t “like the look on my face” when I turned onto a side street to escape someone going 20 mph on Santa Clara. Huh?
