Adante Pointer Esq. is one of the legal warriors fighting the people’s fight for a long time in the streets and courtrooms of the Bay Area. I became aware of him during the Oscar Grant movement in 2009-2010. I remember he would be flanking John Burris, the Bay Area’s Johnnie Cochran in the courtroom, and at press conferences he would help explain the “legalese” to the media and public so people could understand what exactly happened in the courtroom.
Police in Vallejo, California, have released body cam footage of the fatal February shooting of African-American rapper Willie McCoy while he was sleeping in his car outside a Taco Bell. Police said at the time McCoy made a sudden move, but the footage shows he simply moved his hand to scratch his shoulder and clearly posed no threat, yet all six officers present opened fire on him.
“25 shots from the racist cops” and “Indict! Convict! Send these killer cops to jail!”
Attorney Burris is calling for a press conference and rally Feb. 28 at 2 p.m. at Vallejo City Hall for families and individuals impacted by police violence by Vallejo police officers, including the families of recent victims Willie McCoy and Adrian Burrell, as well as Angel Ramos, who was shot and killed in 2017, Ronnell Foster who was shot and killed in 2018 and all others concerned about police violence.
