Two days after the Oakland City Council agreed to settle a wrongful death lawsuit stemming from one of the city’s most controversial police shootings, the victim’s mother, Jeralyn Blueford, spoke with Oakland Police Beat in an exclusive interview.
“No amount of money could replace my son’s life,” Blueford said. “His spirit should be allowed to rest in peace.”
“Each day I spend in terror of the police, grieving, bleeding heart,” she said. “It hurts all the time.”
