That was a hit. Chauncy Bailey was a marked man, and had been stalked for days to learn his movements. Using that logic, he could have been killed in Lafayette, had his normal walking route to work been there.

Using your logic, Dallas isn't safe because Kennedy was shot there, Ford's Theatre isn't safe because Lincoln was shot there -- and considering what came out of the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, Sarajevo REALLY isn't safe.... that one started WWI.

So what you are saying is is meaningless.

Exactly, which means one should question the safety in any city, not just the safety of Oakland.

Don't you mean the logic of the OP? Not all of Oakland is a ghetto.
