    I knew this dude when we were younger.

    Police fatally shot an unarmed black man in East Oakland.

    Derrick Jones, 37, was shot Monday night on the 5800 block of Trask Street.
    Officers say, he repeatedly reached for his waistband and produced what officers believed was a metal object. Deputy Police Chief Jeff Israel declined to say what that object was or whether Jones had been armed.

    But family members said Jones had no weapon. They decried what they said
    was an unjustified killing, comparing it to the 2009 slaying of an unarmed
    man by then-BART police Officer Johannes Mehserle.

    "Those who knew Jones say he often barbecued in front of his Kwik Cuts barber
    shop and shared the food with his friends," reports ABC 7. Sharon Tatmon, a friend
    of the shooting victim, said, "He had his own shop. He would bring his daughter to
    work with him. He didn't bother anybody."

    There's a fully biased police-friendly article here:

    If you don't think the press and the cops work hand in hand, you're sadly
    mistaken. They can kill any one of us. All they have to do is say we were
    reaching for something and put an article in the paper the next day.

    these thing will be happen over and over until we adapt a strategy to make it stop,in a way that does not enrich and enoble

    the perpetrators of this constant terrororism.

    How many folks there,

    are unifed to stop buying squat from white folks for 3 days and another 5 days each day before Christmas?


    We used to have a saying among sisters and brothers on the job, they use the black commnity as a litmus test

    you know when we were kids we would take a stick or a rock and throw it onto what apeard to be a dead dog or dead cat, to see if it was realy dead or not, well that is what the Tea party is doing politicaly

    that is what Wall street is doing economicly

    and that is what pigs are doing in the streets

    the sad thing is we do not see the connection of the three
    heads of Cerberus

    skuderjaymes,

    I guess i could bug you with what is the solution/questions? Or look to see if there is any logic to the problem. But I ain't like that. This nation is getting worst not better. and lots of folks are looking the other way.

    Stay sharp, look all ways. and not be seen!

    I dont know where you live brother but here in NYC we still have not gotten over Elanor Bumpers or Diallo or the hiundreds of others, and that victim of terrorsm in Oakland could have been my cousin or brother

    and politicaly he is!

    No EMS worker ever made it sitting in shock staring emotionaly looking at a child from a fire ,
    instead of alertly and insitictivley picking up that child and taking them to the proper treatment at the hospital

    This is a matter of empathy and an injury to one is an injury to all

    the strategy is to vote and keep voting until we take over the government.

    Why not just copy off the picture and the report and post copies of it every were you go...

    That will start people asking questions as well as make a new law come into pass ...

    Such as the one made to stop people from cell phone picture taking...
