Meanwhile Oaklands cops are killing themselves- Veteran Oakland Police Officer Murray Hoyle Commits Suicide -It was the second time in slightly more than a year that an active-duty Oakland police officer took his own life. In July 2008, Lt. Derrick Norfleet fatally shot himself at his Vallejo home. http://www.mercurynews.com/breakingnews/ci_13195288
I got a call today from a friend whose daughter attends this college- as could be expected he was very shaken up. He happened to be there with her when it happened earlier today. This shooting isn’t the first time there has been violence on campus- in Sept/06 a student was stabbed to death over a parking spot. The student shot Wednesday afternoon was taken to the hospital, it is presumed he is still alive. Cops in this area aren’t used to this type of ‘inner-city’, ‘urban’ crap. This college is in suburbia- ghetto stuff just doesn’t happen- or at least happen to this degree. Was it gang retribution? The victim’s last name is Reyes- one would think hispanic- yet one article I read describes him as black. The three black male suspects are still at large at the time of this writing. On its website, the school states the campus will be closed Thursday, Sept 3rd http://www.skylinecollege.edu/
http://www.smdailyjournal.com/article_preview.php?id=115944 at least this article has the sense to describe the suspects- many other articles don’t. This article mentions their description 4 times.
