Oakland (CA) Police Summarily Execute 18-Year-Old Alan Blueford

Mr. Alan Blueford

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.

    Hello! I’ve go through some of one’s submit below and observed it fascinating and it makes a good deal of sense. Plus i enjoy your theme right here. Thumbs up! Continue to keep on sharing!

    This subject is so old and yet it continues because the Black man in America refuses to fight back, and by fighting back I mean educating yourself, Cease and desist the self hatred, Killing and robbing from one another, gang banging, selling drugs in your own community to your own people all because you don’t give a damn! Then you expect the White authorities to treat you with respect. Sorry but the white man in America only knows how to be violent. He is a gun loving gun using violent human being and for some reason you ignorant brothas out there expect this White man to act with civility towards you. In order to do that they have to be civilized and SO MUST YOU!
    You wanna make a change here’s the challenge Black man… The next time you see trash in the streets of your community clean it up on G.P. (General Principle) The next time you see a crime SNITCH on the sonofabitch making your community unsafe!, Stop the NEGATIVE behavior expecting a Positive result. You want the Institutionalized Racist Police organizations to chill on killing you? Stop getting Police records and become a Police officer for your community. I’m telling you young brothas right now, You can Win but you can only win if you’re in the game Alive and Not Incarcerated. You can choose right now to either Do Right or Do Time! If you do time you’ll do it as a dead man locked up or in the grave either way you’re off the count.

    My question is why they won’t release the officers name that shot this young man. They police have no problem releasing information about the victim criminal history. I have to wonder if this criminal history is even real and even if it is I am not sure how it justifies shooting him. The teenager lost his life, while his shooter is being protected and getting a paid vacation???? My heart goes out to his family especially his parents the death on one’s child I think is every parents worse nightmare

    By the way Oakland Police performs, it seems like the Klan has given the white police another uniform. Since the courts won’t do shit, his family needs to avenge his death and execute the SWINE in the same inhumane manner. Niggaz got to represent and take back the streets. FUCK THE POLICE!!!

    Oscar Grant II

    It happened in Chicago
    Like it happened in New York
    It happened in Houston, Cincinnati and Washington, DC
    Murdered by Police

    It happened to Timothy Thomas
    Just like Johnny Goodwin and Geoffrey Johnson
    They were unarmed
    They were Black

    Aaron Harrison was shot in the back
    Khiel Coppin had a hairbrush
    Lorenzo Collins had a brick

    Jeffrey Lewis, DeOnte Rawlins
    They were kids

    Julian Alexander was a newly wed
    Prince Carmen Jones Jr. was a new Dad
    Both of them are dead
    Murdered by police
    Just like:

    Ousmane Zango, Patrick Dorismond
    Ronnie White and Roger Owensby….

    May they all rest in peace.

    Tragic:( He deserved a fair trial!! If running was the only probable cause for shooting a teenager in the back, that won’t stand up in court. I hope this so-called officer rots in prison.

        @Mike Name calling is so easy. You sir are a racist. See how easy that was. An investigation is needed but the police lie. The police need to be held accountable or this will continue as it has since Oscar Grant. There is No JUSTICE in the US at the moment. Bankers go prosecuted. Cops too. Supreme Court makes decisions which makes Corporations stronger and strong, and citizens weaker and weaker.

    The whole Oakland Police force needs to be fired and replaced entirely. They are one of the most over paid, ineffective, and obviously racist police organizations in the country. Their continuous mishandling of protests as well as their executions of young black youth are simply unacceptable! Federal Government, you’re watching the Oakland police. Intervene and sack all of them! This is crisis mode!

      Not all OPD are F’ed up just the majority! Also, it is not just Oakland, but in my opinion it is a wide variety of officers in the entire east bay area. We all need to remember that all officers of the law are human beings too. And they most may be just as frightend as regular citizens when in a confrontational situation. However, officers in the Oakland area do, in my opinion, over react especially when it comes to our Black (Afro-American) males!

      Um, it sounds like the young men were running away from the cops for self preservation because they obviously know the cops are not there to protect them. With all of the obvious racism going on with the Oakland police and the reports of young black men being shot and killed by cops when they are not a threat, it is no wonder they ran.

      Wow. Here’s just some of the MANY things wrong with that statement:

      a) it’s a false dichotomy.
      b) it assumes powers of omniscience on the part of the police.
      c) it presents law enforcement as some sort of a war against enemies.
      d) it suggests that “loving our enemies” means not shooting them in the back.
      e) it suggests without evidence that this kid was some sort of killer.

      Innocent until proven guilty; we’ll see what comes out at the trial. But if no gun is found on or near the kid at the trial, then it’s going to be hard for me to see how this was self-preservation.

      • MaryAnn
        May 12, 2012 at 10:47 am

        @Jim Rather than Omniscience, I’d have used Omnipotent on the part of the police. Until there is justice when police kill innocent people, they will be Omnipotent.

        Omniscience – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
        en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omniscience
        Omniscience is the capacity to know everything infinitely, or at least everything that can be known about a character including thoughts, feelings, life and etc.

        Omnipotence – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
        en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omnipotence
        Omnipotence (from Latin: Omni Potens: “all power”) is unlimited power. Monotheistic religions generally attribute omnipotence to only the deity of whichever faith …

    The police are murdering Black people, in an effort to foment racial strife. It is so clear, but since most Americans are children of Satan, they look the other way. Woe unto them. To black people I say, ask the creator to protect you, and go to a place where they are not.

  13. Shielding C
    May 10, 2012 at 2:48 pm

    This article was greatly weakened, in my pov, by the unabashed bias and extremism of the author. Saying police were totally in the wrong is one thing, but saying the victim should have opened fire on police is unconsciounable. As a member of the media, it is this author’s duty to remain in control of emotions at when the public is most vulnerable. Don’t add to the insanity – all it does is cast a pall of incredibility about the valid concerns. The facts will speak for themselves. As someone who is reading this story for the first time on this site, the shameless bias in the article only makes me more curious to hear the other side.

    • D-Bos
      May 10, 2012 at 8:28 pm

      I completely 100% agree with what you said. The bias in this article is nearly as disturbing as the crime itself. Grateful that this is being reported, but keep the commentary out. The public needs to know of these occurrences, but they don’t need your suggestion about shooting the gun that was allegedly held back at the officer. Glad you’re educated on your court cases, not glad you suggested violence as the solution.

    • Bear X
      May 11, 2012 at 9:35 am

      I could be wrong but I read the authors statement of “he should have” as an indictment of the police who were not witnessing any signs of intended or actual violence against them.

      As in he should have been firing, or about to fire, before the police had the legal right to open fire on the young man.

      It speaks volumes @Shielding and @D-Bos, that a reference towards probable cause was read as a suggestion to violence. What it speaks to is that we live in a country wherein the color of your skin determines whether or not the public is capable of perceiving your innocence.

      The are 100′s of cases demonstrating that police use racial profiling in place of due process, and that it consistently results in the wrongful and unpunished deaths of (mostly) people of color.

      Honestly, why hasn’t anyone commented on the insanity, or moral degradation of a system that rewards murder? At the very least,the officers should be on an unpaid suspension while the crime is investigated. Lastly, an officer who shoots himself in the foot ought to loose his publicly-sanctioned permit to possess or discharge a firearm in public, as he clearly is incapable of doing so safely.

      • @mercemanson
        May 11, 2012 at 2:11 pm

        that’s so true that officer doesn’t need to possess a firearm permit anymore. I’m tryna figure how he shot himself in the foot but was able to accurately shoot the young man 3 times .did he do it before or after will play a big part in the case.if it happened before it can be said that the officer was upset and fired on the young man out of anger.that should count as aggrevated assualt on an un armed person.that’s just my thought

      I live in Oakland. I’m a Black man with no criminal record, 3 years of national service working with at-risk children in public schools, I’ve gone to college, I’ve never failed to pay my taxes.

      If police approached me for no reason, and reached for their weapons, I would fear for me life, and rightly so. That dozens of other young Black law-abiding men have been killed by police who the system either fails to convict (even with video evidence), or actually protects from prosecution.

      Yes, paid: true. Also, constitutionally-protected: very true. Killers…: well if you’re the mother of a young man about to graduate high school (which is not small feat at Skyline), I’d say the person who shot-to-death my unarmed child: killer, absolutely.

      @Logical, be honest. You’re not a law-abiding Black man in Oakland are you?

    First of all, my condolences to the family. My heart goes out to you. I have a son and two grandsons and I can just imagine what you’re going through. We are most definitely living in a police state and there is only one way that the genocide of our youth will stop. The politicians, the preachers, the celebrities, and our so-called leaders cannot do it. They may help but ultimately, it’s up to us. We first need to know what it is we’re up against and call it by it’s name. I’m saying we’re living in a Police State where our most basic right, the right to life, is being slowly but surely snatched away from us, from you and from I and from our children. Like a thief in the night we are violated at our most vulnerable hour when we least expect it and like the killer drones barack obama uses to murder so-called “terrorists” and their families, often an entire village… we will never see it coming. First they came for the young Black, Brown, and Yellow males and we didn’t stop them, then they came for the homeless, the mentally ill, the disabled and we said, oh well… who will they come for next? Wake Up from your sleeping slumber before they break down your door like they did to Kenneth Chamberlain and murdered him in cold-blood. His crime? Well… before the police shot him they called him a nigger. Ironic, because Kenneth Chamberlin was a 68 year old retired U.S. Marine who fought against the Vietnamese. As Mohammed Ali said when he refused to go and kill for this country, which treated African-Americans as second-class citizens… No Vietnamese ever called me a nigger.
