FROM: The family and friends of Tomбs Melero-Smith





On September 1st, Tomбs Melero-Smith, a young community leader and a 2007 graduate of St. Joseph Notre Dame, was fatally shot ending his hopes, dreams and future as one of Oaklands most promising future community leaders.





The city of Oakland needs to invest in its youth. Tomas Melero-Smiths contribution to the city and his legacy must not be reduced to a dismal number the media assigns to its many innocent victims.





This is a call to action for the City of Oakland. Were demanding that you invest in the protection of our Oakland youth. As concerned citizens we are demanding the following:





1. To solve the murder of Tomбs Melero-Smith.





2. A memorial to be named after Tomбs Melero-Smith to commemorate his contributions to the city; so his life will not be reduced to a number in the citys dismal statistics and records.





3. An immediate city resolution with a clear timeline addressing the measures that will be taken to ensure the safety of the youth in our community.





4. An immediate community forum including the city council members, Congresswoman Barbara Lee, Mayor Dellums and the Oakland Chief of Police Wayne G. Tucker.





5. An immediate investment in outreach programs, after school programs and community centers that provide alternatives for Oakland youth, especially in underserved areas.





6. A public response from the Oakland Police Department outlining steps that will be taken to assure the safety of Oaklands youth, which includes the immediate assignment of Oaklands best and most experienced officers to the areas in Oakland that pose the greatest threat to the safety of Oaklands youth.





7. Match the existing reward for information regarding the homicide and provide outreach to the citizens of the community where Tomбs life was taken, urging them to come forward with any information they may have.
