SFPD Officer Michelle Alvis/killer of Asa Sullivan arrested today
- I just received a call on ISF 24 HR Crisis Line from Kathy Espinosa, mother of AsaSullivan, 26 yr. African American UNARMED Youth killed by SFPD on June 6th, 2006:
One of two Asa's killers, SFPD Officer Michelle Alvis was arrested today on unrelated charges.
The following article contends:
..."Alvis shot and killed Asa Sullivan during a June 6, 2006, confrontation in the attic of a unit in the Villas Parkmerced complex near San Francisco State University"...
There was no "confrontation": Brother ASA was shot through a ceiling, and never made physical contact with his killers. as usual the KKKronicle sides with PD account.
moved to desk duty after shooting,
is charged with stealing

A San Francisco police officer put on desk duty after she was involved in a fatal shooting of an unarmed trespassing suspect in 2006 was arraigned today on charges of stealing confiscated cash and trying to cover it up.
Officer Michelle Alvis, 30, a six-year veteran of the department, was arrested Friday after being indicted for allegedly taking nearly $2,000 that had been seized during an arrest and was supposed to be booked into evidence at the Taraval police station Oct. 31, 2006.
She pleaded not guilty today in San Francisco Superior Court to charges of grand theft, filing a false police report, doctoring evidence and destroying evidence or records.
Alvis' attorney said her client had put the booked money in an evidence locker, from which it later vanished.
The money disappeared after Alvis moved it from one locker to another at the direction of her superior, attorney Lidia Stiglich said.
She then wrote a report accounting for transfer, Stiglich said.
"Anyone could have taken that money - civilians, cops, anybody," Stiglich said. "It's a purely circumstantial case."
She said someone had been taking officers' personal property at the Taraval station before the incident, but this was the first case in which evidence was taken from a locker.
Alvis shot and killed Asa Sullivan during a June 6, 2006, confrontation in the attic of a unit in the Villas Parkmerced complex near San Francisco State University.
Alvis and her partner, Officer John Keesor, responded to the unit in response to a report that a trespasser was there. They found Sullivan in the attic and later said he had appeared to be armed.Sullivan turned out to be holding an eyeglasses case.
Alvis shot Sullivan after Keesor opened fire and his ricocheting round hit her ear.
