Add comment on:Oakland police officer Hector Jimenez finally fired; he murdered both Moppin and Woodfox
OPD officer Hector Jimenez shot and killed an unarmed Andrew Moppin exactly one year before BART police officer Johannes Mehserle murdered an unarmed Oscar Grant. Andrew Moppin was murdered by Hector Jimenez on New Year's Eve 2007. Hector Jimenez was then placed on temporary adminstrative leave (i.e. paid vacation) and was allowed to return to patrolling the streets of Oakland a short time later. Just seven months passed before Hector Jimenez killed again, this time shooting an unarmed Jody Woodfox III in July 2008. Once again, Hector Jimenez was placed on paid leave, where he remained for a full year until he was finally fired this month for having murdered Jody Woodfox.
