Many law enforcement officials are openly expressing dismay that the public held a rally for gunman Lovelle Mixon in Oakland.
KRON 4’s Mark Jones spoke to Alameda County Sergeant J.D. Nelson who is outraged, “I just don’t understand how people in the community can support an individual, a criminal, who was a carjacker, who raped a 12-year-old and murdered four people. How people can rally behind him, I think it’s terrible, just terrible. Our hearts go out to the Oakland police department and to have people rally for that person who is responsible for their murder is disgusting.”
On Saturday Mixon opened fire on two officers during what appeared to be a routine traffic stop, leading to a gun fight in which two more officers died before police killed him.
The officers killed were 43-year-old Sergeant Ervin Romans, 35-year-old Sergeant Daniel Sakai, 40-year-old Sergeant Mark Dunakin and 41-year-old Officer John Hege.
Nelson also told Mark that when Mixon is mentioned, he only thinks of the victims, “The only thing that I will ever think about him for is the many numerous families and lives that he ruined. That’s what I’ll be thinking of when I think of him. What about the 12-year-old girl, how is she supposed to overcome all this? And the other victims he may have raped. And the carjacking victim in San Francisco, he has affected all those people.”
On Friday, just a day before the shooting, Oakland PD learned that DNA evidence had tentatively linked Mixon to the February rape of a 12-year-old girl.
The event, organized by the International People’s Democratic Uhuru Movement, started at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the Uhuru House on 7911 MacArthur Boulevard.
Question, let's call a group of people who show up at a cop killer's rally a voting bloc. Which candidate this past election took this voting block? The Maverick or The Messiah?
You are the people you associate with. If you voted for the candidate these clowns did, you effectively share the same values with a cop killing piece of shit. What do you think of that?
