Masked and angry, rioters cause chaos [Oakland, CA - The Bosom of Progressiveness ]
Oakland Tribune and Mercury News ^ | July 9 2010 | Cecily Burt

Posted on 07/09/2010 12:37:21 AM PDT by NoLibZone

As the verdict reached the streets, hundreds converged in downtown Oakland for mostly peaceful protests before swelling to a crowd of more than a thousand, with a hard-core splinter group of rioters clashing with police and wreaking havoc in downtown.

By late evening, hundreds of law enforcement officers from across the Bay Area had descended downtown to help local police quell the protesters. Wearing black masks, many looted stores, smashed windows and rolled trash bins into the streets while setting them on fire. At one point, protesters began throwing M-1000 fireworks at law enforcement officers and other demonstrators.

Stephen Allen, a 22-year-old protester from West Oakland, got caught near a mob that broke through the gate of the Foot Locker shoe store and looted the store of sneakers and sportswear. Moments later, a masked man, in one swift and violent blow of a long object, broke the window of the Far East National Bank across the street.

Obama’s president.

All of California is a DNC liberal Mecca.

The white cop was found....guilty.

And still they return to violence.

The usual suspects among the pictures -- blacks, of course, since they are the designated victim group de jour, but also masked anarchists, liberal Obama voting whites arms locked in a chain, and a lovely wise Latina wearing a "Hecho en Aztlan" shirt.

Keep saying it over and over again -- "Our diversity is our strength!"

They ignore the law with illegal alien support, and riot in the streets when a jury decision doesn't suit them. These people can destroy, but they create nothing, build nothing.

The veneer of our "multiculture" is thin indeed.

The anarchists are merely just misunderstood spoiled children that are just acting out their frustrations with our oppressive social system and have a superior plan for how man/women/unknown should live.No sarcasm line is needed.

If they broke the windows on my store, or damaged my property, I’d shoot them. That is what needs to be done to these worthless thugs. A few masked corpses laying in the street will deter others from joining in the festivities.

It is not boredom that drives these morons...it is their desire to be anti-establishment in all things. I guess you could credit the hippies for showing them the way to be leeches and ticks upon society in general. They are nothing but a gang of social misfits with access to daddy's money. Their attempt at organization has been so infiltrated by the police that the anarchists are capable of inflicting just minimal damage...it is the off shoots(ecofreaks and ecowarriors)groups that present the most problems due to their use of the cell system.

I can take out some of the later responses about “reparations” and “redistributions” If one can cull even a fraction of the murder,rape,manslaughter,robbery loss,etc done to “whites” it far exceeds, It was like an internal war which even the sSoviets played on and continue to. It was like the “useful idiots” it was the seed of rot or things we as Americans don’t see. It is seen and we pay for it over and over.

I would tend to agree with you, but I think Obama is only truly happy when the government does the redistribution - people doing on their own diminishes his heavenly province.

This is a set of reports with a time line. The latest is first, so it makes better sense read from the bottom up. It appears to be reasonably unbiased straight reporting of facts.

“The veneer of our “multiculture” is thin indeed.”

Our multicultural society only works when people value and identify with being American first and foremost.

I believe you are right. If he can't take credit for it then he will have to blame Bush/Cheney/Halliburton for causing the riots.

The bamster is having the DOJ look at the verdict in this trial. I guess whitey did not get enough punishment for shooting a "Brother". Do you think the DOJ is going to look into the riots for possible hate crimes? This whole administration is the MOST RACIST in US history.

I firmly believe that there a lot of good black men and women who could be president, but this guy has ruined that for them. My future grandchildren will have grandchildren before another black man or woman is even considered for president.

They turn the other way when it’s black on white crime.

Some of these rioters, judging by the fact that they were wearing black ski masks and attacking banks, were probably white anarchists taking advantage of the situation. According to some reports, the police stood back and let the rioters romp around because they didn’t want to “provoke” them...

Aside from that, though, where was it announced that Barry asked the DOJ to “look into” the verdict? I haven’t read that anywhere yet. Pretty stunning if so, but that’s his approach. If you don’t get the outcome you want the first time around (and obviously, the outcome he wants is a conviction for first degree murder) try, try again through some admininstrative means.

This was a determined riot. It was a planned outing.
Nothing spontaneous about it.

What part of spontaneous has so many black masks?
