Suit Over Sanitary Conditions In Santa Rita Jail – Alameda County Settles The Dispute:

The officials at Alameda county have agreed to a settlement of $130,000 to the four women who charged the county for unhygienic conditions when they were doing time in Santa Rita Jail for a protest they had appeared to be a part of in Oakland.
The plaintiffs, namely Tova Fry, Anne Weills, and Mollie Costello and Alyssa Eisenberg, were arrested for civil disobedience at the state building in downtown Oakland. They were part of a protest to request prosecution of police officers who had killed suspects.
According to the women, major changes must be brought in the jailing systems. We faced horrendous conditions and were asked to undress in a public hallway and asked to walk in front of male guards.
Two were kept from using the toilet for hours while the other remained in dirty conditions.
This has been a small but impactful victory for the women. Also acknowledging that the prisoners are also entitled to privacy and screening curtains must be implemented. Garbage bags and sanitary napkins need to be provided to them.
A part of the settlement, amounting to $130,000, will be further utilized for improvement of the jail cells in Santa Rita Jail.

Woman Saved from Being Nearly Kidnapped in San Leandro

SAN LEANDRO, CA– A lady was pepper-sprayed, tore down and dragged to a car while she was walking to work in San Leandro on the morning of 28th July, but was saved from abduction by a passerby who fought off the suspect, authorities stated.
Cops investigators released a sketch of the suspect later that day and are requesting aid tracking him down.
The 23-year-old female was walking to her office at about 7:45 a.m. in the 14700 block of Washington, when the suspect emerged from between 2 parked vehicles and pepper sprayed her, thus blinding her. He knocked her down and started dragging her to a silver Nissan. A man walking by tried to stop the abductor and tried to help the woman. But the suspect also pepper-sprayed him.
However, the man kept a grip on the suspect despite being constantly pepper-sprayed. Eventually, the suspect broke free and got away in the Nissan, cops said.
Cops arrived, and the male and woman were both offered medical aid for their exposure to the pepper spray.
Eyewitnesses described the suspect as a black male between the age of 25 to 40 years old with about 5 feet 10 inches in height and weighing between 165 and 185 pounds, according to cops. He was remembered as having short curly black afro-style hair and a complete goatee.
During the attempt to abduct, he was seen with thin-framed glasses, a collared t-shirt, a black sweater with white stripes around the center, with pants and shoes, both in black, authorities said. According to an eyewitness, the man was found driving a silver Nissan with tinted rear windows.
Authorities have not determined the intention of the attack. The female has no clue of the suspect so it is still unclear why she was being targeted.
Anybody who holds the information about the identity of the suspect has been asked to call Investigator Steve Cesaretti at -LRB-510-RRB- 577-3239.
