Oakland braces for possible riots as verdict approaches
Burn the **** city down, let it commence..
No more layin down to this ish....NO MORE!
Will Grant murder trial be repeat of Rodney King verdict?
LOS ANGELES (FinalCall.com) - Closing arguments began in late June in the murder trial of the White former transit cop who shot an unarmed Black passenger in Oakland.
As a verdict nears, some analysts and activists wondered whether L.A. would see a repeat of “Rodney King.”
Rodney King is the Black motorist whose infamous 1991 videotaped beating by members of the Los Angeles Police Department drew national outrage. A predominantly White jury acquitted three of the officers, deadlocked on one, and set off six days of rioting throughout South L.A. The period became popularly referred to as the “1992 L.A. Rebellion” and the “Rodney King riots.”
^^^^MAY OSCAR GRANT REST IN PEACE, DIVINE FIYAH UPON THOSE BEAST!!!!
Oh yea, you better believe, if they let that ******* walk, its all over....smh.....you're going to see problems, i guarantee you, see OAKLAND has a REAL, REAL deep historical bad blood with ******* police for a long time, back to the black muslim days, even malcolm X's brother was murdered by Oakland police if i remember correctly, also its a bunch of police brutality that has been going on there for a long time.....
This is a bad place to let a pig murderer go free of a young black man....ohhhhh no, you bout to have problems, believe me.
Oakland has a philosophy that is connected to the philosophy of the muslims of self-defense, and taking what is rightfully ours, which is JUSTICE, and FREEDOM, and they ain't like these other weak cities that pander to ******* rule......it just that we haven't heard nothing from oakland since the 70's, now you got somethin.....
Let it commence, the beast make a mistake here, its over......
Well it was the Los Angeles Area where the police targeted the Nation Of Islam years back and shot up innocent black men and women, but oakland has a deep history in all of it as well, which makes this a serious situation that is about to go bad......
Daja vu .....all ova again..........it's going down as people will stand up !
If anything go down in the Bay most folks in LA will just be onlookers on the idiotbox because so far it aint got much pub down socal and there aint the kinda network here anymore that can mobilize statewide. whatever was left of that ended after the execution of tookie williams.
Hopefully if and when folks do stand up it will result in some pro-active movement rather than reactionary behavior such as burning down long standing black buisness.
thats what killed it in 92 when independent black institutions such as the aquarian bookstore and cultural center were burned and looted out.
there are still blighted areas in the heart of the crenshaw district which have not seen any redevelopment even though every major black politician relies on same for their vote.
Considering just befail our beloved city after our urban rebellion--as in Detroit--be careful what you wish for!
if they tear ish up...i hope it's in the correct neighborhoods....uknowwhatimsayin?
