No riots over the murder of white cops
A letter in yesterday's Chronicle (below) raised some interesting questions about the murder of four Oakland cops.
And, just as important, they were white men killed by a black man, which, in the minds of the Oscar Grant rioters, means the event doesn't qualify for a riot:
Four Oakland police officers are dead. They were just men doing their jobs---trying to help make Oakland a better, safer place to live.
But in his reckless, self-centered and hateful mind, one criminal punk made a conscious decision to murder these men. It wasn't an accident; he hadn't meant to pull his toothbrush and mistakenly grabbed his gun. He intentionally killed these men to avoid going back to prison for violating his parole.
So where's the outrage, Oakland? Is the "community" going to riot in the streets, break windows and burn cars over this? No. They only do that when it suits them. Besides, they were just cops, right?
