On November 5th , 2010, Oakland Police swarmed a group of Oscar Grant demonstrators as they marched towards the Fruitvale Bart Station in East Oakland.
For those who don’t know, Oscar Grant was a young man who was killed on video, Jan 1 2009 by Bart Police in front of scores of people.

This killing would bring people together all over the bay, state, country, and world around police murder in violence.

This group in particular was heading towards Fruitvale Bart station when they were illegally surrounded and arrested for “remaining at the scene of a riot”

The National Lawyers guild sued the city of Oakland and just this summer settled for over a million dollars, citing OPD inability to follow it’s own crowd control policies.

Take a peak at this video produced about police actions that day. .

In the image and the text, it says "On November 5th , 2010, Oakland people swarmed a group of Oscar Grant demonstrators"

I believe you mean "Oakland Police" not "Oakland people"
