Oakland CA


They used to shoot black people here for sport... and pretty much still do.

Police Kill Man in North Oakland : Indybay

"At 4:45PM on September 20th, a police officer shot and killed a man on the street in North Oakland. Gary King, Jr., age 20, had just exited a store on the corner of 54th street and MLK. Apparently an Oakland police sergeant approached him for questioning. The details of what happened next are unclear, but it seems that it involved the officer using a taser. King pulled away and it appears that during his attempt to flee, the officer shot him twice in the back.

A swarm of police cars (including helicopters) arrived on the scene very quickly, but it was a number of minutes before an ambulance arrived. In the meantime, one officer appeared to be performing CPR. Gary King reportedly died at the hospital a short time later. Police on the scene dealt somewhat roughly with bystanders, including relatives of Mr King.

Someone spray-painted "Police did this" on one of the BART support columns on MLK at 54th. A memorial with candles and personal items is set up at the place where the shooting occurred.
On Monday, September 24th, over 100 family, friends, neighbors and other concerned people protested at Oakland City Hall against the murder of Gary King. Gary's family is determined to continue to fight for Justice for Gary. There will a protest every Thursday at 12 noon at Oakland City Hall.

This is the third time this year that the Oakland police have fatally shot someone. The Oakland police sergeant who shot Gary King was involved in two previous shootings in recent years, one of them fatal."







There's at least a dozen other examples I could pull up from the last 3 years but its too depressing... the amount of incompetency in the OPD is as criminal as anything that happens on International Blvd or San Pablo Ave at 2 in the morning.

Black people shoot black people for sport, in Oakland.

Oakland is a thugtastic city, it's no surprise there are lots of police shootings. That's like saying the police in Woodside aren't racist, 'cause they never shoot black people!

California is home to some pretty sad police forces.

California's police are probably some of the best in the country, most rigorous training, and higher standards.

Clearly y'all haven't been down south, where starting pay for a cop can be 13 bucks an hour... Oh, and no unions, when the new sheriff comes in, he can bring in his buddies.

LAPD is actually pretty impressive, they have one of the smallest police forces per capita in the nation. 11 cops covering areas the size of Boston sometimes.

Talk about pissing on the victims of OPD violence's graves... neither Oscar Grant, nor Gary King, nor Derrik Jones were "armed and dangerous". These police are shooting these black men for the hell of it...

NOPD, most murders go unsolved. Most crimes go unsolved. Probably about 50% of cops are dirty.
