About 60 people marched and rallied in Oakland on Wednesday to condemn the police and honor Lovelle Mixon, who was killed by Oakland police after he fatally shot four officers Saturday. "OPD you can't hide - we charge you with genocide," chanted the demonstrators as they marched along MacArthur Boulevard, near the intersection with 74th Avenue where Mixon, 26, a fugitive parolee, gunned down two motorcycle officers who had pulled him over in a traffic stop. He killed two more officers who tried to capture him where he was hiding in his sister's apartment nearby.
The protest was organized by the Oakland branch of the Uhuru Movement, whose flyers for the march declared, "Stop Police Terror." Many marchers wore T-shirts featuring Mixon's photo, including a woman identified by march organizers as Mixon's mother. The woman declined to comment and gave her name only as Athena. Lolo Darnell, one of Mixon's cousins at the demonstration, said, "He needs sympathy too. If he's a criminal, everybody's a criminal."
Asked about police allegations that Mixon was suspected in several rapes, including that of a 12-year-old girl, marcher Mandingo Hayes said, "He wasn't a rapist. I don't believe that." Bystanders had mixed reactions. Nicole Brown said that she can't condone murder but that police don't respect residents of the area. Daria Belt said she had no sympathy for the protesters but sympathized for Mixon's family.
Shit... If Lolo says "he ain't did nuttin" then by god he hasn't done anything. The rule is that anybody named Lolo is the prevailing expert on anything within a 400 miles radius of where she lives, it's the name, I couldn't make this shit up. Though I'm not the least bit surprised I am incredibly annoyed. I'm a big fan of freedoms, freedoms to do most things within reasonable boundaries. What I'm not a fan of is freedom to be an idiotic ass-clown of a dumbass piece of shit like oh... "about 60 people" obviously are.
I sincerely think that anybody who marches in defense of a rapist and murderer should be fitted in cement shoes and sent Christmas fishing with Scott Peterson. How the fuck many generations of stupid have to combine to create such a potent concoction of uber-dumbass. The black community in places like this wonder why the cops don't respect them? THIS IS WHY THE FUCK THEY DON'T RESPECT YOU!! Are you fucking retarded? I've lived in California, 2 minutes outside of Oakland. I know what kind of place this can be.
If there weren't cops "disrespecting" the black community of Oakland's right to murder people there would be no fucking people left in Oakland. It's absolutely astonishing that people like this can not only walk and remember why they're walking but that they don't forget to breathe and simply die. You know they voted and I'm willing to bet it was for Obama. Un-fucking-believable!
