Re: “Who's Patrolling the Patrols?

It's only fair that people should protect their community. People might be coming from a "place of fear" but is it their fault? Is it their fault that they're scared? C'mon! If you and 5 of your neighbors had been violently mugged or had your home invaded, what would you do, just "turn the other cheek?" Yes, it's unfortunate that Oakland has disproportionate arrest rates for black youth. It's also unfortunate that in every Oakland mugging I've ever heard of, the perpetrator was a young black man. Nobody's asking the patrols to hunt down black men, and they can and should be trained in anti-profiling techniques. Bottom line, if you don't cause trouble, nobody should trouble you. Look, I'm sure there are plenty of law abiding black folks in these neighborhoods who want the patrols too, let's hear from them.
