Dozens march for Mixon, against police(03-25) 20:36 PDT Oakland -- 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.
Sometimes, I resent the fact that we can't have a Tiannemen square-style beatdown here. If it was me in charge, I'd say **** it. Clean up Oakland once and for all.
I am no huge fan of the police in many instances, but this is disgusting.
(note: the vigil for remembrance of the officers drew a much larger group)
