  •  This quote makes me crazy: (8+ / 0-)

    Common sentiment here is that this is only news bc of #OO.

    "If this happened in West Oak, the body'd still be laying in the fucking street"

    I'm not doubting the truth of it, which is the crazy-making part.

    YAY OAKLAND OCCUPIERS!!!!!!!!!

    •  All of the murders are reported. (5+ / 0-)

      Most people just don't pay attention when it happens in someplace like East or West Oakland.  And that is unspeakably sad.

      And please doubt the truth to the other quote.  Although I get the implication that is trying to be made, it also implies that the people of West Oakland have such a disdain for life that they would leave a body lying in the street - someone's son, brother, cousin, friend, neighbor, etc.  That is not who the people of West Oakland are.
