Criminal Law: Police Review Complaints:
  • Meggs took the Berkeley Police Department to the Police Review Commission many times beginning in 1993, with an unusually high rate of success. The police have since sued the PRC to strip it of its powers, costing the City over $1M USD. Meggs suffered regular harassment including death threats, theft of ahz bicycle, false citation, false arrest, false charges and attempts to frame, violent and disabling injuries, and more since filing a first complaint. One example of these many complaints is this one. Documenting Abuses:
