Complete Senseless crime here in Oakland. A city that is over run by a bunch of animals and a Police force stretched too thin makes criminal activity easy. Where is the outrage??? This was an innocent elderly woman!!! Oakland can have these damn protests about an incident 3000 miles away but crime in our OWN CITY goes unnoticed. WHY? Is it tolerated? Is it accepted? OR IS IT JUST ACCEPTED???
Oakland needs to get cleaned up/
No one is SAFE regardless where you are in Oakland or who you are.
This is a city that needs total reform that is way over due.

They need to fire up the furnaces and throw the negros into the flames, nasty grotesque animals they are.

I just cant stop thinking about this lady losing her life to these damn thugs here in Oakland. These people if you call them people, I call them complete inhumane people, it would be great if we could send each and every one of them to one island and watch them destroy themselves. I just am so disgusted and furious that this has happened.
And where are the frickin protests???
Oh yeah we have another protest for the same Trayvon Martin this weekend again but nothing for the poor little 8 year old and this elderly lady.
People get your priorities straight and become concerned about your city not a city 3K miles away.
I live here in downtown Oakland and I am ashamed to say that I am an Oakland resident.
How can anyone be a proud resident when this happens???

Agree that it needs to STOP
Oakland is out of control and very dangerous.
No one is safe here
No neighborhood is safe
and its heart wrenching to know that this was a very innocent lady
having nothing to do with anything but herself and her animals
I just can't believe this and I am disgusted with YOU OAKLAND.

Completely outrageous and sickening to have this happen to this innocent lady.
Oakland, what is really wrong here? Is it that no one cares any more or is it just accepted? The violence needs to stop. Downtown Oakland is a real WAR ONE during marches and protests, West Oakland is a war zone and East Oakland is so bad that even on the interstate they shut it down to do illegal activity sideshows. What has this city become? Living here in the Jack London Square area that's all I see at night are windows smashed car after car when people are dining at the restaurants. Their isn't a night that I walk and don't see many vehicles windows broken and peoples belongings strewn along their car. Along the Jack London Square waterfront there is security that are armed and walk with Rottweilers to protect the area. This makes all of Oakland look bad to have to have heavily armed security patrolling neighborhoods.
INSANE CITY
