FBI, local police conducting massive sweep in Oakland
KTVU ^ | 4/24/2013 | KTVU

Posted on 04/25/2013 9:39:42 AM PDT by JohnKinAK

OAKLAND, Calif. — A massive law enforcement sweep was underway in Oakland Wednesday, with nine people having reportedly been detained an hour after it was first reported.

FBI agents, local police SWAT and the California Highway Patrol were targeting multiple locations.

Several streets were closed down in West Oakland during the sweeps. Portions of Seventh and Eighth streets were shut down in the area for at least 90 minutes and while helicopters circled overhead.

The police barricades were reportedly lifted just before 10:20 p.m.

It appeared to be an extensive operation with many officers involved.

There were agents carrying out actions in numerous parts of the city Wednesday night. As of 9 p.m., KTVU learned that nine people had been detained.

An hour later, a separate sweep involving San Leandro Police reportedly resulted in a standoff near the intersection of E. 22 Street and 14th Avenue.

You can be sure it’s not targeting the new or old Black Panthers.

import millions of Islamicists and turn America into an armed camp police state under military, or military-style occupation

we warned about this when WashDC started importing them in the 1970’s

and the damned politicians are STILL doing it to us!!!

They learned from Boston that they can get away with it. Wait until the first LEO gets shot, regrettably. Then they will need to ratchet up another step, to keep us all safe.

This has been a long time coming... should have done it years ago.

Better still, just wall the whole thing off, lock the gate shut, and melt the key for scrap.

Oakland Police and other agencies involved told KTVU that the participating departments were not at liberty to discuss what the action concerned  said STFU and get back on the curb, peasants !

“Can someone please explain why it is necessary for the police to wear military battle dress uniforms?”

They have become more and more militarized starting, I think, in ‘93. Uniforms, armor, tactics, tools are much more military than the old bluesuit “policeman is your friend”.

In Philly they would look first at all the half drum barbecues on the sidewalks to see what was being served for lunch.

They can do this in MA.
They can do this in CA.

If they manage to do this in TX and walk away unscathed, I will be very surprised.

Yep! This is all pattern testing and acclimation of tyranny. It's another incremental step. They tell you "it's for your safety," but over time, their presence grows to the point of consistency. They wall off neighborhoods, setup bulletproof checkpoints. Voila! Welcome to your ghetto. Your extermination number is 155. Please stand in line for your shower.

Only nine? One would think that many of the people law enforcement would encounter in a sweep of Oakland would have a ton of arrest warrants on them. Might as well set up a tent city at the jail.

Consider the 4th amendment is enforced at the whim of judges appointed by bureaucrats. What’s to stop the Federal tyrants from rubber stamping warrants for anyone they deem a threat, regardless of veracity?

Given the area, I’m not in the least surprised or concerned, but at some point common sense thinking people have to start asking tough questions.

If they don’t want the cops doing this they should civilize themselves. My little town sees a county cop roll through once or twice per month because we don’t need them.

Even the feds are likely to keep their distance after getting their patties smacked over the Hutaree raid.

A national reporter asked the local Sheriff in West, Texas about reports that there had been looting after the fertilizer plant explosion. The Sheriff said yes there had been but they had taken care of that really quick. No report on the current health of the looters.

That's because its not football season. Otherwise he'd be kicking field goals for the Raiders.

I have been saying the last week the next sleeper cell to activate will come from Berkley, CA.

Either the DHS is after Moslems or Tea Party militia.

Myself I think Obama wants to ferret out Moslems before they are exposed and start blabbing away about their visits to the Whitehut.

No such luck.

CNB reports it was kids playing with fireworks and red paint and practicing first aid. The smoke was WHITE indicating we have a new pope. Obama says the new CIA director is a muslim who converted while serving in the middle East (he was not brainwashed because he is brainless) and he is a loyal American supporter of jihad. Eric wants all republicans to appear and answer questions under oath before his grandiose jury. Congress adjourned just a five years ago.

Is this part of Operation Ceasefire ? If so, Oakland police in concert with federal authorities have been conducting the exact same sweeps in Oakland since last year.

I’ve lived here in central Kentucky for almost two years now. I have yet to see ANY cop car within ten miles of my place.

I do hear the occasional gunshot, but never followed by a woman’s scream. It’s usually followed by the silence of a dropping squirrel, turkey or deer.

Not defending the trend but they don’t have to invest in dry cleaning when they roll around on the ground with some perp. wash and wear and doesn’t tear up. Most state police agencies still enforce the issued uniform except for swat teams.
