The ACLU needs to consider the rights and civil liberties of the citizens of Oakland. For too many years the crime rate has soared because no one in Oakland is determined enough to stop the lawlessness which permeates the black culture. Black parents are unwilling to teach their children the difference between right and wrong, that selling and using drugs is unhealthy and leads to violence, and that an education is the way out of poverty. The rap and hip hop culture has resulted in the murders of thousands upon thousands of black youth, but does anyone hear the ACLU lamenting about that? The ACLU's primary goal is to let black youth feel that they can literally get away with murder. Let us see how the ACLU staff feel when one of their protected gangsta youth pimps out or murders one of their daughters.

The AFCS or Americans For Common Sense, reported that those same young black juveniles would not have been arrested if they did not commit a crime. The AFCS also reported that it is common for the DA's office to not file criminal charges on minor crimes in high crime area cities such as Oakland. The point being, the ACLU needs to use more common sense when reporting these inflammatory type stories. It is the ACLU who is at fault here, not the cops. Keep doing your job OPD, we are behind you 100percent.
