OPD “Monitors” Social Networking Sites and Fliers

June 28, 2010

From the Tribune:

 

“In preparation for the verdict, the Oakland Police Department has conducted training exercises for crowd control and riots. Once the jury begins its deliberations, officers will be on standby, and the department is instructing its officers not to take vacation during that time. An Oakland desk officer added that departments around the Bay Area are also preparing to act when the verdict arrives.

 

Police are also monitoring fliers, notices and social networking websites, including Twitter and Facebook, in an attempt to gain early notice of mass gatherings or public events.”

Well, it shouldn’t be too difficult for anyone watching to see who the OPD serves – it certainly isn’t “justice.” Let’s hope some of their fear translates into real consequences for Mehserle.
