Oakland Police Gave Protesters ‘Space to Destroy.’ Business Owner Hits Back with the Perfect Sign.

The Oakland police gave the May Day protesters (in the Baltimore mayor’simmortal words) “space to destroy.”
The aftermath was fairly predictable: Widespread property damage and business owners in the community who have heard all the excuses before.
One business owner is Erich Horet, who was interviewed by Oakland’s KPIX Channel 5 about vandals defacing property at his auto dealership.
“Enough is enough,” Horet told KPIX.
And to make his point crystal clear, Horet posted a sign at his business establishment:
“OPD, You Failed Your City Again.” 
KPIX caught up with the Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, who refused to give the news channel a ‘grade’ on how she handled the protests.
“I am having some difficult conversations with our chief about how we can do better in the future, how we could have prepared more,” Schaaf did say.
The Oakland Police Chief, Sean Whent, admitted, “Obviously we could’ve done better. That goes without saying.”
An exchange between Whent and KPIX 5 reporter Christin Ayers put this response in context, however.
“Are people to expect that when there is an anti-police protests, windows are going to be broken and businesses are going to be hit?” Ayers asks.
“I don’t think that’s a realistic expectation. It can happen,” Whent responded.
But Horet has his own advice for the Oakland mayor and the police chief on what they should come to expect from such protests. 
“I wasn’t surprised. Everybody saw that coming,” Horet said. “Apparently not everybody, apparently not the mayor, not the chief of police. But everybody else knew something was going to happen.”
Horet has heard all the assurances from the Oakland mayor and police department before, and he’s still dissatisfied.
In fact, he won’t restore the windows at his business establishment until he gets a straight answer from the mayor and the police about what they will do to prevent such property destruction in the future.


  1. i think they may be in iraq, lebanon or syria. can i get paid now?

  2. Police brutalize African-American. African-Americans riot. Politicians don't hold police accountable. Police get sued and the city awards victims huge amounts of money, and the taxpayers lose all around. Rinse, repeat.

    1) You have the RIGHT to LIFE. That means you must have the RIGHT to defense of your life.
    If they bar you from having the MEANS of self defense, they are violating your RIGHT to LIFE.
    2) The first ten amendments to the Constitution, known as the BILL of RIGHTS, is a List, an Enumeration, of INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS. The Delegates to the Constitutional Convention refused to ratify the Constitution without this list of INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS. Therefore, NONE of the 10 Amendments deal with government/state rights/powers. Therefore the 2nd Amendment does NOT have a single thing to do with government run "militias" such as the National Guard. The 2nd Amendment is about the RIGHT of the PEOPLE/INDIVIDUAL to keep and BEAR (CARRY for you ILLITERATE SCOTUS morons) Arms. And Arms are weapons, NOT "sporting toys".
    3) The "police" have NO "Constitutional duty or obligation to protect individuals" they are only there to protect "society". This has been repeatedly confirmed in the courts. http://www.users.fast.net/~behanna/kasler.html
    "Warren v. District of Columbia is one of the leading cases of this type. Two women were upstairs in a townhouse when they heard their roommate, a third woman, being attacked downstairs by intruders. They phoned the police several times and were assured that officers were on the way. After about 30 minutes, when their roommate’s screams had stopped, they assumed the police had finally arrived. When the two women went downstairs they saw that in fact the police never came, but the intruders were still there. As the Warren court graphically states in the opinion: “For the next fourteen hours the women were held captive, raped, robbed, beaten, forced to commit sexual acts upon each other, and made to submit to the sexual demands of their attackers.” The three women sued the District of Columbia for failing to protect them, but D.C.’s highest court exonerated the District and its police, saying that it is a “fundamental principle of American law that a government and its agents are under no general duty to provide public services, such as police protection, to any individual citizen.”[4] There are many similar cases with results to the same effect.[5] " "The seminal case establishing the general rule that police have no duty under federal law to protect citizens is DeShaney v. Winnebago County Department of Social Services[6]"

    A few years ago somebody wrote in about a sign he'd seen on the porch of a ramshackle home in the country. 'Notice to burglars: Survivors will be shot again".

  5. Ask Donald Rumsfeld he hired them!

    If these questions had been framed in such a manner that they question Judaism in general and/or Jewish women in particul,ar the Professor in Question would have already been fired. And the entire US MSM establishment would have been all over it screaming anti-Semitism. Clearly a double standard is being applied.
    Further without having access to the required readings/lectures we really cannot claim to have a handle on the legitimacy of her response in the context of the questions she was asked.

    The real perps are hiding in plain sight

  8. The word "Police" derives from the word "Policy". Their job is to enforce the "policies" of the State. That is all. They are "Policy Officers". If your safety is no longer of any interest to the State then you are on your own. No such disinterest when it comes to your taxes though.

  9. They all look like kikes, except for the red headed one. Wonder why that is?

  10. "3) Why did Christianity, and its male gods, want to silence these women?"

    That's easily answered: they spent too much time in the only church bathroom.
