Hands Up. Don’t Shoot.

Categories: Front Page, Open Mic

Six hundred or so people gathered in Oscar Grant Plaza Thursday afternoon, August 14th, beginning at 4:00 PM to take part in a National Moment of Silence for all those murdered by police.

After the moment of silence names of those executed such as Oscar Grant and Andy Lopez were read and then more were called out from the crowd: Alan Blueford, Ernest Duenez Jr, Kenneth Harding, to name but a few.

Jeralynn Blueford then spoke from the heart about the killing of yet another 18 year old, followed by others wondering “What was the next step?”

Here are some tweetpics from today’s event in the amphitheatre and from around the country.
