Quan adviser Dan Siegel quits over Occupy Oakland

Quan adviser Dan Siegel quits over Occupy Oakland.

Jean Quan, you are obviously doing a pathetic job in controlling your dogs of war. Our constitutional rights are being violated, the People have the right to peacefully assemble. Just another instance of how flawed our entire societal system is. Out with the old. Revolucion!

Occupy Oakland Clashes With OPD- War Veteran Has Skull Fractured From Being Hit by Flash Bang Canister. Sign the Petition to Jean Quan for Justice!!

As if the OPD didn’t already have a bad rep, they have caused a war veteran who was peacefully protesting brain damage. Occupy Oakland, an extension of occupy Wall Street, was hit with tear gas, flashbang canisters, and ultimately, complete disregard to our constitutional right to peacefully protest. This is bullshit! Policy critically needs to change. Attitudes of law enforcement and government need reform. The people are getting sick of oppression and brutality. Enough is enough!!!

Link to the petition to Jean Quan, telling her that peaceful assembly is a constitutional right, and police brutality needs to stop!!

“The Mayor of Oakland — and mayors and city governments across the country — should get on the right side of history and honor all Americans’ freedom to peacefully assemble and to civically engage.Public officials must listen to the grievances of this popular movement. It is absolutely unacceptable to attempt to dissuade civic engagement through the use of brutality, repression and retaliation against movement participants. This is America. All Americans have the freedom to peacefully protest our government. That right defines who we are as a country and a people, and when it is denied, all of America is the poorer for it”.  Leanne Maxwell

Phil Matier: Oakland Police Accused Of Drawing Guns Too Often On Black Suspects

Phil Matier: Oakland Police Accused Of Drawing Guns Too Often On Black Suspects « CBS San Francisco.

So here it is in black and white, so to speak. These scared police officers need rigorous psychological training to prepare them to work these streets. They obviously  by into the ignorance promoted on shows such as Fox news. It is ridiculous when scared police officers, probably rookies, are thrown on the beat without a sufficient non-discrimination training course or two. It is of dire importance that these cops be trained to overcome their bias and fear. Otherwise, people of color, as well as people of lower class standing, will continue to get abused and killed by the OPD.

OPD Jacks Me, Then Shoots Yet Another Black Man

Witnesses say Oakland police shot man with his hands up | abc7news.com.

What’s up OPD? Living shady, I see. And I thought my experience was bad. Just 2 days ago, I called the police because I was robbed at knifepoint, and they proceeded to run MY information. They realized I had a bench warrant, and subsequently hauled my ass off to jail. Amazing you can’t even call the cops when you are robbed. Guess I should have just chalked it up as a loss. What is the world coming to when you can’t even depend on the cops to protect you? There should be laws to protect the innocent from reporting crimes, and to protect people from getting shot for their ethnicity or social status. It’s straight up bullshit when someone that is supposed to help and make sure you are safe stigmatizes and vilifies you. Still no call about the cell phone that was stolen from me. No surprise.

San Francisco DMV Settles Civil Rights Lawsuit with Transgender Woman

San Francisco DMV Settles Civil Rights Lawsuit with Transgender Woman

Sometimes the law IS on the side of the right person. Gender, sexuality, ethnicity have nothing to do with a person’s worth or right to live in peace. We all should be able to live without fear of retribution for being who we are. Just because you don’t understand where someone is coming from, or who they are, doesn’t mean you can’t accept them. Stop trying to categorize, stigmatize, and brutalize. What people do to their own bodies is no one’s business, especially if it helps them be happy. As we all know, happiness is so hard to find. It is not an easy choice for transfolk to make to change their gender. Gender and sexuality are not dichotomous!
