Riots in Oakland


Oscar Grant was shot in the back by police in Oakland .He was not resisting arrest.Now Oakland had a riot.It seems when the murder of a black man is videotaped,you have undisputed evidence of police misconduct.

The videos of the killing makes me sick to my stomach, notice how the media calling the protests riots and focusing on that instead of the man who got shot in the back and is now dead.

Some say the officer war reaching for his stun gun instead.There's no logical answer for what he did.

The videos make no sense for any valid reason, what gets me is how they are saying the video tapes in the station aren't working, that they are only there for terrorism?

One of the people in the AfroSpear had the cell phone video of it and put it on his site before giving it to the police.Recently, a former major league baseball player's son was racially profiled and shot.They live in a mostly white neighborhood.He's alright. The problem is this happens all the time.

Well, Sean Bell in New York City was shot fifty times by undercover police, undercovers can drink on the job, 2 drinks, they didn't even give them alcohol testing, and they weren't even found guilty of reckless endangerment.
