    Four Police Officers Shot in Oakland, California

    OAKLAND, Calif. Four officers were in critical condition and a suspect dead on Saturday after gunfire at a traffic stop led to a massive manhunt that ended in a shootout, police said.

    Two officers were shot in the first incident just after 1 p.m. after they stopped the suspect's vehicle in east Oakland, said Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason.

    The suspect fled the scene on foot into a nearby neighborhood, police said, leading to an intense manhunt by dozens of Oakland police, California Highway Patrol officers and Alameda County sheriff deputies. Streets were roped off and an entire area of east Oakland closed to traffic.

    At about 3:30 p.m. officers, acting on an anonymous tip, found the suspect, who had barricaded himself in a building.

    "We had SWAT officers go into that building and that's where the second shooting took place," said Thomason.

    The suspect was killed during the exchange, and two more officers wounded.

    Coincidence? I think not.

    Notice the hypocritical "anarchists" inciting the riot.

    That doesn't constitute a very effective "riot." They should have brought hockey sticks like the Seattle WTO protesters did...send those gas canisters right back at them.

    Any "riot" which is prepared for in advance to that extent is not a "riot" at all, but what you would call a "direct action" and what I would call "raping and pillaging."

    I believe it's in response to this:

    Oscar Grant Death: BART Officer Mehserle Arrested (VIDEO)

    The video is pretty clear. I can't see any reason why the cop should have shot the guy. The cop was later arrested in Nevada.

    Excellent video. Thank you. You can tell by the expression on the cop's face that it was an accident. He's being investigated right now. It seems he was negligent by not exercising proper trigger discipline. Either that or it was pure impulse. Why'd he even pull his gun out at all? We'll see what happens.

    Edit: I dunno, the more times I watch this the more it seems like this was not an accident.

    You asked the most important question in all this...

    "Why'd he even pull his gun out at all?"

    I don't get on the whole "bash the cops" bandwagon, but that son of a bitch needs to fry.

    It's hard to tell. He jolts back as though he is surprised about the weapon's discharge. The difference is that between second degree murder and involuntary manslaughter. Obviously he had no reason to pull out his gun at all. His actions afterward are telling. He rolls a man he just shot in the back onto his back. I don't know how I would react in such a situation, but clearly that wasn't the most empathetic thing to do.

    Accident or not, the BART cop was at the very least negligent. He'll do time no doubt. Deservedly so. Community anger is understandable. It's unfortunate that so many are willing to take advantage of that kind of justifiable anger to create an unjustifiable street fight.

    Grammar Nazis just want to maintain standards.

    Four for "for" isn't worrisome for me. You know the difference, you just slipped.

    Then/than & too/to are my pet peeves.

    And back to the topic, Oakland is a rough town. East Oakland particularly so.
