A KPIX news cameraman was punched and robbed during a live broadcast outside an Oakland high school, the latest in a spate of holdups targeting the media, police said Thursday.
Reporter Anne Makovec and cameraman Gregg Welk were on the air shortly after noon Wednesday outside Oakland Technical High School near the corner of 42nd Street and Broadway. They were at the school to do a story on the passage of Proposition 30, the tax measure preventing deep cuts to education.
As Makovec was finishing her report, police said, five men rushed up and grabbed a $6,000 camera from the tripod. Viewers saw the live picture being jarred and turned sideways for about two seconds.

It’s those Amish up to no good again. What are we to do?
Drove up in a Mercedes and a Lexus....where was the Pearl-White Escalade?
Obama’s “sons” know that any derogatory new reports about the increasing crime rate by blacks will not get national coverage because of the msm covering for them(him).
I love it. I love attacks on the Media by people who look like Obama.The Media deserves every bit of it after their support for Obama.
Look at the name of the TV spokesperson
(Akila Bolden-Monifa)a hyphenated Muslim sounding name
“Akilah Bolden-Monifa is a Huff Post blogger and op ed writer for Progressive Media Project.
She is a lesbian of African descent who lives in Oakland, Calif”
At the shop getting newer, bigger rims put on, naturally.
Maybe I am too conspiratorial but this does not make sense. Why risk being filmed on live tv? Two vehicles? A Mercedes and lexus? It was a $6000 camera but if there are many(2 vehicles) and they drive luxury cars, robbing tv crews is not how they make a “living”. This has occurred a few times since June and the article says there will be protection sent with crews from now on. Not that I generally care much about the media but there is more to this, I wonder if threats have been made but it is being kept hushed by the request of law enforcement?
should add to list
That’s a shame.
They voted for more violence and crime when voting for obama. I have no sympathy for liberals suffering the consequences of their vote. Boo Hoo.
Never go in to a Black Ghetto armed with a camera....
It's the same tactic the Mexican drug cartels use.
The media will then only report what they are told to report.
Sounds like there is getting ready to be a major drug war and the drug lords are going to take over the city.
Media’s response: Bush’s fault.
When one steals something, it is usually to trade or sell it for cash. What or where is the market for television station grade cameras and tripods? It seems a limited market that only serves that segment of the industry. The mooks in the inner city are happy with the videos they create with their cell phones or the little handhelds they can boost from Best Buy or WallyWorld. Who would pay cash for these cameras and tripods?
