Fatal encounters with the cops in Oakland

By Lynda Carson - June 12, 2020

Oakland - As the protests continue in Oakland against police brutality, and killer cops, the message of the protesters grows, and it is clear that they want to divert funding from the police to the African-American community.

For years Oakland has been troubled with cops since the days of The Riders. In recent years Celeste Guap and her encounters with the cops made plenty of headlines. The recent protests against police brutality, and killer cops, have ironically resulted in more police brutality against the protesters.

Making matters worse, the protests are taking place in the midst of the coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic. These are grim times we live in.

In hope that their fate, and the fate of their relatives and friends will have a prosperous future, equality, and an end to racism, the protesters do not want anymore people to end up having fatal encounters with the cops.

Nor do they want people to have fatal encounters as a result of others having close encounters with the cops in Oakland.

Below is a list of 83 people from the year 2000 to the present who have had fatal encounters with the cops, or they died because others had encounters with the cops.

The list may or may not be complete, but it is what it is.

Hopefully, by sharing this list it will help to give people a better understanding of what has been happening in this city when some people have fatal encounters with the cops.

People have been wiling to place themselves at risk while protesting in the midst of the coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic, and hopefully it will make a difference by saving lives in the future.

Oakland police investigate state patrolmen's fatal shooting of a man who allegedly rammed their car

By Sarah Moon, CNN

Updated 10:40 AM ET, Wed June 10, 2020

(CNN)Investigators are looking into the California Highway Patrol's fatal shooting of a 23-year-old man during a traffic stop, the Oakland Police Department said.

Three CHP officers opened fire on Erik Salgado on Saturday evening in East Oakland, and a woman who was in the vehicle with Salgado was also shot and injured, police say.

The incident comes amid heightened awareness of police conduct and mass protests following the death of George Floyd in custody in Minneapolis. Protesters in Oakland also have marched to decry Salgado's killing.

Though Oakland police are leading the probe, no Oakland officers were involved, police say.

Salgado was allegedly driving a Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat recklessly through an area where CHP officers were conducting a follow-up investigation to an unrelated shooting from the night before, Oakland police said in a news release.

Fatal Encounters website

Below is the Fatal Encounters website link where I was able to compile the above information from by doing a search on their database, except for the last information I gathered from CNN.

Fatal Encounters is a fantastic website, and others may want to check it out to see what is happening locally, and across the nation.

What it does not explain?

It does not explain why most of the people who are dead from the fatal encounters with the cops in Oakland are mostly African-Americans, and people of color.
