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

California Inmate Hunger Strike Against Inhumane Conditions- Sign the Petition!!!

Prisoner Hunger Strike Solidarity | amplifying the voices of CA prisoners on hunger strike

The penal system in California has been long overdue for reform. Prisoners have been denied constitutional rights and have been subjected to dehumanization, abuse, and stigmatized “racial” segregation. We need to work together to rebuild the “justice” system from the ground up- from biased police profiling and brutality, inadequate court processes, and inhumane jails/prisons that vilify as well exacerbate inmates’ problems- instead of using social programs to help the PEOPLE (not assumed criminals) forced to be there.

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.

Urge Obama to Repeal/veto the Patriot Act. Enough is enough!!

Congress soon to reconsider Patriot Act – Inside Bay Area

York

 

Most of California’s reps do not agree with the Patriot Act continuing, or being expanded on. Figures Boxer and Feinstein would let more of our constitutional rights be violated in the name of “public safety”. Now that Bin Laden is “dead”, the government can turn inward, and concentrate on harassing Americans, through surveilance and seizure of library records. Library records? What, is some terrorist going to check out the Anarchist Cookbook? It’s time to get rid of the Patriot Act, the NSA, and all the other facades that perpetuate fear and tight control of the American people.

Call the White House and demand that Obama veto the Patriot Act extensions, as well as the act itself. It is time for that change that he used to talk about. Yes we can!
