Group Description

By the end of the first week of November 2005, hundreds of articles have been written nationawide around the shameful racial profiling and SFPD brutalization of San Francisco State Ethnic Studies Department professor Antwi Akom, arrested and placed in county jail after going into his campus office.

Campus police refused to comment on the incident.

According his colleagues , Akom came to campus around 10 p.m.Monday Oct. 25, to pick up a book he needed for teaching his class.

When he arrived in the front of the Ethnic Studies building (which is where his office is located), he was approached by a security guard who asked him what he was doing here. Akom reportedly told the security guard he was a professor and he was going into his office. He then proceeded to go inside.

When he came out, there was a white cop to meet him and told him to put his hands behind his back.

Akom said the unidentified campus police officer was called by the security guard while he was inside of his office getting the book. He said he asked the officer why he was getting arrested, but the officer had no answer.

Eventually three officers threw Akom to the ground and handcuffed him. During that process, one of them hit their face against his knee. After Akom's arrest, his 3 childrn were left untttended, crying in his car....blatant case of racism that is apparent in all aspects of our society.
