Oakland to Privatize Suppression of the Oscar Grant Rebellion and Declare "Emergencies"
Dellums detractor
Blackwater anyone?!? They've been itching for a solid domestic job like this for years. Why not just give the rent-a-cops guns and let them shoot civilians like they do in Iraq? At any rate, the Chamber of Commerce is very pleased. And you thought you had seen it all when you saw police tanks, tear gas, snatch squads, the tasing of compliant detained persons, and otherwise brutalizing and arresting people of the wrong color on false charges. Well, you ain't seen nothing yet. Bring on expanded police power to declare emergencies and make arrests. Bring on the private "security" forces. Welcome to the police state of New Oakland. Now we know what Dellums meant when he said he wanted to make Oakland a "model" city -- pioneering new fascist alliances between corporations and state power on a local level.
