Announcement at Oakland courthouse by speaker that Mehserle received bail, set at $3,000,000

which means someone just needs to put up their house for him to cover the $300,000 that actually needs to be paid and he'll likely be out as soon as the paperwork is processed.

HOW MUCH LONGER ARE YOU GOING TO STAND BACK AND TAKE THIS SHIT FROM THE SYSTEM? IF THERE WAS EVER A TIME TO FIGHT BACK THAT TIME TO FIGHT BACK IS NOW! THERE'S GONNA BE HELL TO PAY. FUCK YOU POLICE. FUCK YOUR COURT SYSTEM. FUCK YOUR GOVERNMENT. WE DON'T NEED THIS SHIT ANYMORE. NO JUSTICE NO PEACE NO RACIST POLICE. FIRST IT WAS "WE SHALL OVER COME" AND THAT DIDN'T WORK. NOW IT'S TIME TO "FIGHT THE POWER". NO JUSTICE NO PEACE NO RACIST POLICE. WHO'S STREETS OUR STREETS. FUCK THE POLICE! TIME TO GET EVERYBODY OUT OF THERE HOMES AND INTO THE STREETS. WHO'S STREETS OUR STREETS. THE SHIT GONNA GO DOWN. WE'VE BEEN WAITING TOO LONG TO COUNT ON THE SYSTEM TO CORRECT IT SELF. WE CONNOT RELY ON THE SYSTEM ANYMORE. THE SYSTEM HAS FAILED US AND EVERYONE KNOW'S EXACTLY WHY. RACISM IN AMERICA IS ALIVE AND WELL! EVERYBODY COME OUT. EVERYBODY COME OUT NOW. STAND UP AND FIGHT BACK. FIGHT THE SYSTEM! FIGHT THE POWER!

If you don't riot, then you can't complain
by different tactics matter

"If you don't riot, then you can't complain"

is like saying: if you don't follow MY tactics, then you might as well shut up.

other activists will use tactics that will work for them.

and we won't shut up.

your comment is childish and devalues a lot of folks that have dedicated their lives to fight the same system of oppression.

just because they don't use your tactics, shouldn't mean you should slam them.
