OAKLAND — A Skyline High School senior is dead after Oakland police profiled and opened fire on him.

The summary execution of 18-year-old Alan Dwayne Blueford happened near 90th Avenue and Birch Street in Oakland early Sunday morning, on 5-6-12.

Young Brother Alan Blueford and two friends were standing outside
waiting for some young lady friends to come pick them up.

According to Oakland police, two of their cops “believed one of them were carrying a hidden gun.”

It is unclear how this was determined based on their looks,
nor is it clear why that would matter in a country which prides itself on gun ownership rights...

Police say the young men ran
(obviously fearing for their lives in the face of paid, constitutionally-protected killers) when they approached them.

One of the cops,
Miguel Masso, who entered OPD after leaving a military career in West Point, lives in Los Banos between Fresno & San Jose, chased Akan
for two blocks before recklessly firing 3 shots @ the young man, killing him instantly.

The cop struck Alan Blueford three times in the back and shot himself in the foot.

The cop was taken to the hospital for treatment, while young Alan was left to fie on the street and his lifeless body was left lying at the scene if the murder for 4 hours, while his young friends were ubterrogated by 6 hours. Alhough OPS had Alan's teenagers ID, they never called the fanily, and upon release, the 3 teenagers had the painful duty to advise the grieving fanily, whole the lifeless body of Alan remaned lifeless on the pavement for 4 hours.
the killer was rewarded with a paid vacation
(aka “paid administrative leave”),
despite the long-standing U.S. Supreme Court decision in Tennessee v. Garner, 471 U.S. 1 (1985),
which specifically outlaws police shooting at fleeing suspects without probable cause.

Following standard protocol,
state-run media outlets have reported extensively about a so-called “criminal record” of Alan Blueford,
which is their way of justifying and encouraging summary executions by police.

An attorney for Oakland Police, Harry Stern, said the summary execution was “100 percent” justified
and in line with police policy.

Though there is no way of knowing the truth regarding this execution,
if what police say is true,
Alan should have used the alleged firearm to protect himself from the state organization members who know the policy of paid vacations when they murder Americans.

The entire situation should have and could have been avoided,
have the cops not profiled these young men by approaching them
for absolutely no reason except for harassment.

The family of Alan Blueford has hired Civil Rights attorney John Burris for a possible civil suit,
however the killer will not be charged
and should be back on the streets
after his foot heals from the self-inflicted, reckless gunshot wound.

Alan Blueford was scheduled to graduate in June.

Our thoughts are with the Blueford family.
