If the crime had been committed just a few months earlier, Brandon's age would've made him ineligible for death. Since his incarceration, Brandon has become a model for others & mentor for at-risk youth. Incredibly, he has received zero infractions in his two decades caged.

Brandon was just 18 when he was convicted as an accomplice-did not pull the trigger-in a murder in Texas. Didn't realize that anyone was going to get shot. He was arrested, convicted, & sentenced to death all within 1 year. On death row since 2000. He's almost 40 now.

Before this year, no federal execution had taken place since 2003. In July 2020, Barr & Trump resumed federal executions. Since then, they've killed 8 people. Brandon Bernard has now received an execution date. He is currently scheduled to be killed on December 10, 2020.

Today, my office filed homicide charges against the former officer who shot and killed Keita O’Neil, an unarmed, Black man in 2017. As far as we are aware, this is the first time in San Francisco history that an officer has been prosecuted for homicide.

We’ve suffered a great loss. Travis Nagdy, a young leader committed to the fight for justice, is gone. As we marched for Breonna Taylor, it was often Travis and his megaphone leading the way. A bullet took his breath, but we still hear his voice. Rest in Power, young Brother.
