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.
Liberal city getting what it has always wanted.
Barricading cities; The new norm.
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!!!
Folks, there’s a whole lotta crap been going on around the country in a short period of time. Not a good pattern.
A Police State is a happy place.
Pick up that can...
A Dragnet based on information voluntarily provided by Williams-Sonoma?
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.
Better still, just wall the whole thing off, lock the gate shut, and melt the key for scrap.
Can someone please explain why it is necessary for the police to wear military battle dress uniforms?
Paging Travis McGee..
Yup. Nuke it from orbit.

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.
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.
