From what I have seen in the past few decades the BART police and the OPD have
abused their authority and continue to use their guns to murder black people.
How much more of this do we need to see? when do we say "enough is enough"
we the people of the city of Oakland have the right to Disarm these thugs that prey on
our citizens.
there is no real reason for police in this city to carry guns. I personaly feel this is the root of the vast majority of the violance in this city. If the Police where not actively harassing and out right murdering young men of this city, most of the problems would not happen.

please for the sake of your children call for BART & OPD Gun Control
