Hey Occupy Oakland members, how about you purge the criminal element out of your ranks? Then how about you purge the criminal element out of Oakland? Be constructive and truly take on a task worthy of doing. It is rather pathetic to continue on with this 1% crap if you are not willing to take on the murders and criminal element in your own neighborhoods. Instead of making it hard on your neighbors by being up all night banging drums and what have you, why not give back to the community you are destroying by launching your movement to clean up the streets of Oakland by eliminating the drug dealers that have turned Oakland into a place not fit to let your children play outside their homes for fear of being caught up in drug violence.
Come on people make a difference, seems like so little to ask that you take on something where change would be a good thing. Put the members of your group that think smashing windows and destroying property is the right thing to do on the front lines and start tearing down Oakland’s drug empire. You want to get rid of the cops so prove you can do their jobs better.
