Add comment on:After her work getting trial moved, Tammerlin Drummond attacks Oscar Grant's friends
Tammerlin Drummond is worse than Chip Johnson (http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2009/10/02/18624196.php) when it comes to betraying African Americans in Oakland, just she doesn't have as big of a platform as Chip does with the Chronicle. You see, to Tammerlin and Chip, people who call out police crimes are crazy, and only those who blindly back the badge are sensible, upstanding citizens. If Oakland averages a half dozen or so unarmed African Americans killed by police every year, and police in California have killed nearly one thousand people in the last ten years, almost all non-white, so be it, according to these two writers. People of color who get killed by police all must have deserved it somehow. Perhaps those abused and killed by police cursed on a public train, for instance.
