Oakland Get Ready

Oakland is gearing up and getting ready for a verdict in the murder trial of Johannes Mehserle, the former BART police officer charged with killing Oscar Grant III.

The OPD have staged pretend riots to sharpen their skills on crowd control and vamping on people.

A telephone tip line has been activated for snitches wanting to provide authorities with information concerning potential problems that might occur in the city after the verdict is announced.
Police Department spokeswoman Officer Holly Joshi said the tip line is for snitches to call in tips, rumors and information related to preplanned, current or ongoing anarchist activities, protests or civil disobedience related to the verdict.

Surely the snitch line can be anonymously sabotaged or overrun with too much useless information.

"We understand that the community is grieving and we are in this together. We will not tolerate destruction or violence."

Just in time for this...
The Oakland City Council voted to lay off 80 police officers to help close the city’s $30.5 million budget gap. This happened after the OPD spam called Oakland residents suggesting Oakland would become a "warzone" if cops were laid off.
