This may be round 3:
Peaceful Oakland rally marred by vandalism – San Jose Mercury News
OAKLAND â€” The morning after a handful of vandals hijacked an otherwise peaceful rally against police abuse, several business owners and workers patched up broken windows and tried to resume their normal routines.
Mayor Ron Dellums and police Chief Wayne Tucker, meantime, met with business leaders and said in an afternoon news conference that the city will be taking additional steps â€” including the employment of private security patrols â€” to try to prevent more damage and restore people’s confidence in coming to downtown Oakland.
The background of this is the death of Oscar Grant, a fellow with a lengthy criminal record, following reports of an intergroup fight (classic honor-seeking pack behavior) on the Bay Area Rapid Transit system.
I hope President-Elect Obama is wise enough to see the trap that “civil rights leaders” and liberals are setting for him, and stays out of the controversy.
