THE ANGER OVER THE ARGUABLY LENIENT JULY 8 SENTENCING OF POLICE OFFICER JOHANNES MEHSERLE FOR THE KILLING OF UNARMED OSCAR GRANT IN JANUARY 2009, BROUGHT FEARS THAT RIOTING WOULD BREAK OUT IN THE BLACK COMMUNITY OF OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA AND POLICE AND THE NATIONAL GUARD WERE ON HIGH ALERT FOR SEVERAL DAYS.
SINCE THE 60'S, SIMILAR SCENARIOS HAVE BEEN REPLAYING IN U.S. URBAN BLACK GHETTOES WHERE INCIDENTS OF POLICE BRUTALITY OFTEN SPUR LARGE COMMUNITY PROTESTS.
ON MONDAY JULY 12, A CROWD OF A HUNDRED GATHERED AT THE MONUMENT ON SPRINGFIELD AVENUE IN NEWARK, NEW JERSEY TO COMMEMORATE THE 1967 NEWARK RIOTS, WHICH MANY WOULD RATHER CALL A REBELLION OR AN UPRISING AND IN WHICH AT LEAST 28 DIED OF GUN SHOTS AND THOUSANDS WERE INJURED.
FOR 27 YEARS, THE COMMUNITY HAS GATHERED ANNUALLY TO DEMAND JUSTICE FOR THE VICTIMS BUT NO ONE HAS SO FAR BEEN HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR THE KILLINGS.
WBAI FRED NGUYEN COVERED THE EVENT AND FILES THIS REPORT.
