On Occupy Oakland #J28 Move-in Day march, Officer Rodney Kirkland, OPD badge #119, SHOVED a woman off her bike as the riot-line advanced past her, and they arrested her. I later witnessed Kirkland swat a cam-phone out of a protester’s hand while he was filming an arrest, but I didn’t save the footage.
) , who was at the time kneeling on the ground, treating someone for tear-gas at the ILLEGAL KETTLE @ 19th & Telegraph (No exit option was offered). Vid of Miran being carried by paramedics into the ambulance calling out “OFFICER 119!” coming soon.
Rodney Kirkland, as an Oaklander I’m am fucking ASHAMED to see you wearing the uniform of my City. You are a fucking VIOLENT, PROTO-FASCIST MENACE, and people from Scotland, Cairo, India, NZ/Australia, and ALL OVER THE FUCKING WORLD know your name and badge number (119) and WATCHED YOU LIVE AND DIRECT ON THE INTERNET being an abusive piece of shit.
These pictures are forever, and forever your name (Rodney Kirkland, OPD #119) will be associated with BEING A VIOLENT, ABUSIVE PIECE OF SHIT HIDING BEHIND A BADGE!
-Among the footage my fumble-fingers did not save (but which was streamed live) included the same Officer R. Kirkland using his baton to swat the cell-cam out of a protester’s hand while the snatch-team was arresting another marcher who had fallen. The phone’s owner stood his ground and demanded his phone back (which was behind Kirkland). A Sgt came forward and allowed him to get it back.
Earlier at the 19th & Telegraph illegal kettle, was assiting someone who’d been tear-gassed, Badge number #119 swatted her with his baton while running uptown towards the YMCA where the march had gone on to. When I came to her, she’d gotten worse and friends had called paramedics.
Guess who OPD badge #119 is? R. Kirkland again. I wonder how hard it would be to google “R Kirkland 119 Oakland Police” and see if he’s already been d0x’d (not that I’d ever post such a link to the blue). But no, really. As an Oaklander, Rodney Kirkland, badge #119, is a piece of shit.
-I saw Alameda County Sheriff’s bring a fucking TANK to arrest ~400 people who, after an illegal kettle w/ no avenue of escape offered, were ALLOWED INTO THE YMCA BY THE STAFF INSIDE WHO UNLOCKED THE DOORS. About a hundred made it out the back door, ~ 300 got arrested.
WHY THE FUCK DOES ALAMEDA COUNTY HAVE A FUCKING TANK AND WHY DID THEY BRING IT SATURDAY NIGHT?
The mainstream media is full of shit. Get a fucking camera and get out there, see/film for yourself. Pix, or it didn’t happen. BE THE MEDIA!
Film the police, run a tape for the underclass Get the face, name, number on the badge They flash, we flash back When they act disorderly, react accordingly & capture all we see Nightstick, zipties, and tasers, think you’re licensed fore type-vicious behavior Make the tight fist with the video trained towards the pigs like this They trip, and we make ‘em famous
