North Oakland Now: A note on the police shootings
on March 23, 2009
We’ll have more on this soon, but for now I just wanted to draw your attention to a few new details about the police shooting that took place over the weekend. According to the Oakland Tribune, the suspect in the shootings was a recent parolee trying to navigate a broken system. Last week we profiled some people who are making it through this system, but it’s not easy for them or for anyone else. I’ll be keeping an eye on this part of the story as it develops.
