Occupy Homophobia! Three #OccupyOakland Thugs Charged With Hate Crimes & Robbery –’Yelled Vulgar Epithets’
The victim only wanted to live in peace. How dare she!
(Reuters) – Michael Davis, 32, Nneka Crawford, 23, and Randolph Wilkins, 24, confronted the woman on the streets of Oakland in February after she told them not to riot in her neighborhood, the Oakland Police said in a written release.
“She was surrounded by three protestors and battered as they yelled vulgar epithets regarding their perception of her sexual orientation,” Oakland Police spokeswoman Johnna Watson said.
The female victim was not identified except as a 20-year resident of the neighborhood.
“Her wallet was taken during the crime,” Watson said. “The victim broke away from the group and called police, who were able to arrest one suspect near the scene.”
Watson said the other two suspects were arrested at a February 29 Occupy Oakland protest.
Each was charged by the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office with felony counts of robbery and hate crimes, Watson said
On Feb. 22, the Oakland Police Department responded to a report of a robbery on the 4000 block of Piedmont Avenue in Oakland.
The female victim who called the police said she was walking across the street from a Wells Fargo bank when she noticed a group of Occupy Oakland protesters calling for a riot, police said.
What we have learned today, is that stealing from the 99% is okay if the individual happens to go against their agenda.
