On Tuesday night, the Oakland Police Department presented a meager report on the controversial gang injunction in North Oakland during the City Council’s Public Safety Committee meeting. The OPD’s presentation lasted only a few minutes showing a marked increase in violence in the “safety zone” and negative impacts in surrounding areas since the injunction has been in place.

“The gang injunction strategy pursued by Oakland City Attorney John Russo appears to be part of a federal effort to promote the use of gang injunctions across the country. A joint training program run by the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA), a branch of the United States Department of Justice, and the National District Attorneys Association promotes the usage of civil nuisance lawsuits such as the actions pursued by Russo in North Oakland and Fruitvale.”

“He has been the most attentive, most cooperative, most interested defendant and that’s why they’re targeting him,” said defense attorney Yolanda Huang…Quintero has sat quietly at every one of the injunction hearings, writing quietly on a legal pad.”
