    They are holding demonstrations in Oakland Calif supporting the guy that shot and killed four cops, they had a parade for him, some in the crowd were calling the cop killer a "cool dude"

    The only place you will hear about it is on Fox unless I missed it some where else, I don't think Mush Mouth Matthews would talk about this.

    In America They Now Have Parades For Cop Killers

    We can only hope.

    Al Capone went to jail for tax evasion. Ends justified means there too.

    Well, let's see how many places you "missed it," shall we?

    Not only did I see this story on CNN today, but here we are regarding the "parade", as you so overdramatically put it:

    the Associated Press, via our very own Boston herald:

    Vigil held to show support for suspected Oakland cop killer - BostonHerald.com

    in fact, hundreds of U.S. newspapers and news outlets (as they always do) used the same AP story on the event... including your very own favorite, Fox News:

    FOXNews.com - Mourners Remember 4 California Police Officers Shot During Traffic Stop - Local News | News Articles | National News | US News

    anyhow, moving on:

    here's ABC:

    People rallied in the streets for Lovelle Mixon who shot four Oakland police officers - 3/26/09 - San Francisco News - abc7news.com

    here's AOL video

    "He Is The Hero" People rallies in the street for Lovelle Mixon who shot 4 Oakland Polices - AOL Video

    There was no parade, dear forum race-baiting Grand Wizard... It was an impromptu gathering of 50-60 of his own angry people. There was no city funding, no organizing, nothing. Give it a rest.

    Further, such a spontaneous event wasn't going to be covered by every news organization in America. They obviously didn't all know about it before it was going to happen, in order to get a news team out there from their satellite offices. You get how that works, do you not, genius?

    Regardless, the story was picked up by AP, and distributed to every newspaper or online news outlet who pays for AP service. Which is 98% of them.

    Get a clue.

    See you in the next thread, whereby you do your best to portray minorities in an overall negative light.

    Every major news outlet is reporting this including SF Gate, NY Times, LA Times, Salon, Huffington Post, CNN it is not a partisan issue.. unless all you read are rightie blogs..

    The Washington Times seems to have underreported it though...

    Washington Times - Around the Nation

    Looked like a parade to me, they were all laughing and yelling their crap and carrying pictures of the Killer.

    I knew this one would turn you on.........:singing:

    You're like the little kid who keeps getting beat up at the playground and coming back for more. Sad.

    Can you imagine what it would be like if the cops had shot and killed him first? Riots instead of parades. "He was turning his life around. He just started a rap career..."

    Isn't Oakland where a cop just killed a guy point blank for no apparent reason on camera on a subway platform?

    I may be mistaken. But that would be a helluva coincidence.

    Of course if I am not mistaken, it does add some context to this (we are to believe) completely unprovoked show of support for a cop-killer.

    No this does not make me a supporter of the guy. It makes me someone who thinks context matters.

    I didn't say it wasn't reported, I said I may of missed it, Press Coverage was kind enough to point out to me where I might find it, and I did.

    America is still a great country in that it allows people to openly support "Murder"

    That parade reminded me of THE KLAN marches.

    I don't mean to sound insensitive, as any loss of life is tragic, but who pays for this? Who pays for the 75 Boston cops, to fly out to Oakland, for a funeral? Does anyone know?

    I doubt the police budget includes this......likely from union or even out of pocket.....but I could be wrong

    If the union is paying, doesn't that mean the taxpayer, since the union is paid with taxpayer money? I'm just trying to figure out why 75 cops from Boston had to fly to Oakland, for a funeral. Not 7, not 5, not even 7+5, but 75.

    because that's how its always been done........

    look at it this way......I doubt the taxpayer obligation would ever go down if they stopped doing this.......

    but I think I am entitled to having 75 people from every city who still uses a bong to be at my funeral if some anti-dope guy put me down

    Boston Police Department is one of the biggest tit jobs in America ... can easily make a six figure income if you "know" the right people, if you "play ball", if you are a "good ol' boy"..... if, .....
