From: An Anonymous Talk Radio Listener [Email him]
The reason that Oakland was one of the places where there has definitely been rioting after the Zimmerman verdict is explained by radio host Aaron Klein here:
Commentators have been perplexed at how Martin protest crowds last Sunday were reportedly able to control Oakland streets for more than three hours, terrorizing drivers and attacking reporters without police interference....
The police reluctance to stop the violent crowds came 11 days after the city of Oakland agreed to pay approximately $1 million to end a lawsuit filed on behalf of 150 Occupy demonstrators alleging police misconduct during a 2010 mass arrest.
The class-action lawsuit was filed by the radical [Communist Front] National Lawyers Guild in coordination with the ACLU....
The settlement also places U.S. District Judge Thelton Henderson in charge of ensuring implementation of the agreement for the next seven years.
