      The photos at the link at the end of this story are definitely worth seeing - cops just spoiling for a fight, very ugly! Bill Hackwell also took some excellent photos of this march; they're at http://www.indybay.org/newsitems/2009/02/28/18574163.php#18574164.

      I dare anybody to read this story and look at the photos with a dry eye and a hard heart. This is great motivation to keep up the fight. We can win this one!

      Oscar Grant III birthday Hayward march


      Friday was Oscar Grant III's birthday. The family celebrated with a march in downtown Hayward where Grant was from.

      The city should have done something special for the family, declared
      Friday, February 27 as "Oscar Grant Day".

      Instead, they attempted to intimidate the marchers lining the streets with club wielding police clad in armor.

      The city missed a real opportunity to heal some wounds, to connect with a rightfully, understandably angry and mistrusting youth.
      What they accomplished was to create a larger divide between the police and the youth.

      Yes, there was no violence that day. But at what cost. In the police's attempt to overt any potential problems, they closed the downtown to everyone.

      Hayward police
      , similar to what
      Johannes Mehserle did, assumed that a young black man was dangerous and violent, and took preemptive action.

      Hayward has a new downtown that desperately needs these young people. They should have embraced them, used the opportunity to bring the community together, showcase it's movie theater, and restaurants.

      I was sorry to see the city drop the ball on this opportunity by gearing up for major arrests and intimidating peaceful marchers who were there for a birthday party.  The city's own son, shot at the hands of authority.

      I watched as
      his mother was denied to walk down a pubic sidewalk by one of those club wielding cops.

      The mayor should have been handing her the key to the city, and discussed ways to bridge the divide.

      Some photos from the event below.

        So this cop who already was investigated in 02 and 06, now asks the judge not to look at
        the whole video? Why?
        When he was beating this 15 yr old girl, didn't he know he was being taped or did he
        assume his boys would delete the tape?? The firemen that came in (instead of medical
        doctors) to see the child's injuries, were they friends of the Sheriff???

        Schene's lawyer, Anne Bremner,had asked Judge Catherine Shaffer not to release the video
        to the media.
        "As we argued to the judge, it will inflame public opinion and will severely impact the
        deputy's right to a fair trial," Bremner said.


        "In this video, King County sheriff's department deputy Paul Schene is seen rushing into a
        holding cell, kicking a 15 year old girl upon entry, he then grabbed her by the hair,
        slammed her head against the wall and began to take her down to the floor, still holding
        her hair and violently flinging her to the floor by her hair.
        WE KNOW THIS IS un-professionalism and brutality. THIS was a young girl that he was
        flinging around and ONCE she was subdued he cowardly struck her with his FIST several
        times to the back of her head. After receiving blows from the deputy to the back of her
        skull she was motionless. Another deputy who also entered the cell assisted in placing
        restraints on the juvenile detainee. After the detainees restraints were secured deputy
        Schene again grabbed her hair to pull her to her feet. WHY IS he is only being charged
        with 4th degree assault.??What danger could he have been in from a sneaker that was
        kicked at him while he was standing outside of the cell? At no time did the detainee
        attempt to lunge from the cell, SO THE deputy was not in jeopardy. This deputy should be
        charged with aggravated assault and child abuse.
        I would really like to know who her parents are, and what they have to say about this.
        Schene had the audacity to say that he was assaulted by the girl kicking her shoe off at
        him, he then entered the cell to "prevent another assault" .
        If this is the case then why didn't he just close the cell door?'



        Schene faces a maximum penalty of one year in jail and reprimand or termination from
        the department pending the results of an internal investigation

        Schene was investigated previously for shooting two people — killing one — in the line of
        duty in 2002 and 2006. Both times his actions were found to be justified, said Ian
        Goodhew, prosecutor's deputy chief of staff."Justifiable!!!, Schene shot and killed an
        unarmed, mentally disturbed man following a traffic stop that degenerated into a 'knock-
        down, drag-out' fight," noted William Grigg at lewrockwell.com. "The shooting was ruled
        'justifiable.' Shortly after that incident, he was stopped for driving under the influence
        (apparently of prescription medication). He was given a deferred sentence and placed on
        probation

            STOP THE SHOP. Right now in NY it is finally working for the NY Post.
            You can do it. In Syracuse, NY a number of years ago a Mall was emptied of Black and
            Brown shoppers. We would not shop there because of a police action against our children.
            You can do it. Just do it.
            Clean out those shopping areas.
