OAKLAND — A Skyline High School senior is dead after Oakland police profiled and opened fire on him.
The summary execution of 18-year-old Alan Dwayne Blueford happened near 90th Avenue and Birch Street in Oakland early Sunday morning. Mr. Blueford and two friends were standing outside waiting for some young lady friends to come pick them up. According to Oakland police, two of their cops “believed one of them were carrying a hidden gun.” It is unclear how this was determined based on their looks, nor is it clear why that would matter in a country which prides itself on gun ownership rights.
Police say the young men ran (obviously fearing for their lives in the face of paid, constitutionally-protected killers) when they approached them. One of the cops, whose names are being protected by the city of Oakland, ran after Mr. Blueford for two blocks before recklessly firing a gun at the young man, killing him instantly. The cop struck Mr. Blueford three times and shot himself in the foot once. Of course, the killer was rewarded with a paid vacation (aka “paid administrative leave”), despite the long-standing U.S. Supreme Court decision in Tennessee v. Garner, 471 U.S. 1 (1985), which specifically outlaws police shooting at fleeing suspects without probable cause.
Watch a report about the execution by ABC-7 in San Francisco.
Following standard protocol, state-run media outlets have reported extensively about a so-called “criminal record” of Mr. Blueford, which is their way of justifying and encouraging summary executions by police. An attorney for Oakland Police, Harry Stern, said the summary execution was “100 percent justified” and in line with police policy.
Though there is no way of knowing the truth regarding this execution, if what police say is true, Mr. Blueford should have used the alleged firearm to protect himself from the state organization members who know the policy of paid vacations when they murder Americans. The entire situation should have and could have been avoided had the cops not profiled these young men by approaching them for absolutely no reason except for harassment.
The family of Mr. Blueford has hired an attorney for a possible civil suit, however the killer will not be charged and should be back on the streets after his foot heals from the self-inflicted, reckless gunshot wound. Mr. Blueford was scheduled to graduate in June.
Our thoughts are with the Blueford family.
