And this is where congresswoman lee and the mayor of Oakland say they support the rioters ...
Lee said she stands with Oakland Mayor Ron Dellums, the City Council and community leaders in supporting people who want to express themselves.
So, what about government officials being in favor of law and order instead of rioters?
[edit on 7/9/2010 by centurion1211]
"Understandably there is grave concern in the community," Lee said. "However, during this time our city must come together peacefully so that we can begin to heal."

No, I'm not joking, i've been told this, yep benefit of being wite, ie benefit of not being black. If you fail to understand the wisdom of this now proven intellectual construct , you are a helpless racist, at least according to dear leader and added to the list for purging after november.

Put yourself in the young officers shoes. Your in one of the nastiest gang ridden towns and your confronting several gang member, the guy was Obviously scared and lost control of his thoughts and grabbed the wrong gun.
This is why Tazzers should not be carried by police.
Second, If the guy AKA gang scumbag thug had not been causing trouble then this would not have happened.
Then again most these people in Oak town will never understand that one.
Some cops are bad but most are just like you and me trying to make a buck with families to feed.
The officer should not have to pay for 10 years of his life because someone else put him in that situation. Its the gangs and bad police tazzer policy period, end of story.
