Welcome to Oakland, where the leadership & police are so inept this crime will never be solved.

2/3 of murders in Oakland aren't solved, so you can basically kill anyone you want and not worry about getting caught.

+1 on Oakland Resident's comment. This is appalling.

I can't stand blatant disrespect for law enforcement. I suggest the above two posters arm themselves and move to Oakland and help out instead of cowardly posting ignorant insults. I salute policemen and especially policemen brave enough to work the streets in Oakland, risking their lives for strangers everyday, who have relatives and families who never know if they'll see them again.

Re the story, very tragic, indeed.
