    Jam….is your question a case of being an ignorant d-bag? Of course it is….why else would someone make quick judgements without knowing all of the facts. Ignorant comments without all the facts = ignorant d-bag!

    Hmmm, shootings every day in Oakland but when the police shoot, it’s an automatic racial cause according to some of the people that post here. Where are you when the gang members shoot and kill INNOCENT people? Oh wait, they are your friends… Hey, did I just assume something?
