IMG 2789 2At the beginning of July, The Sonoma County Human Rights Commission published a 40-page report titled, “Human Rights Violations in Santa Rosa California - Policing the Black Lives Matter Protests.” The report alleges numerous violations by law enforcement against protesters.  KRCB’s Adia White spoke with commission chair D'mitra Smith. Smith describes the tactics used by police and how the commission evaluated them.   
 
 
  
 
It’s unclear how the report will be used to investigate these events and hold officers accountable. In part two of this report, KRCB’s Adia White asks Smith what she hopes will happen next.
