  • Oakland is a killing field, many no the victims like many no the people who did these crimes. I feel sorry for our young black men out here they have no goals, no ambition, no drive just dreams.. I pray one day this cycle of death and crime will one day cease in the mean time we have to keep losing the ones we love.
