Black Panthers (Uhuru’s) Alive and Well in Oalkand, Lovelle Mixon Kills Four Cops

Friday March 27th 2009. OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The shootings of four Oakland police officers on a single day by Lovelle Mixon slain in a gunfight with police, was remarkable not just for its death toll, but for the years of law enforcement experience Mark Dunakin, John Hege, Ervin Romans and Daniel Sakai had racked up between them.

Sakai, 35, the youngest of the 4 officers killed Saturday by the parolee with two guns, had been working to protect people since his days in college. Like 40-year-old Dunakin, a 17-year veteran who investigated homicides, he married a fellow officer.

Romans, 43, put in time as a Marine and an officer with Oakland's public housing authority before he pinned a city police badge to his chest. Hege, 41, who was declared brain dead Sunday but remained on life support, worked as a physical education teacher and a volunteer reserve officer before he fulfilled a dream and joined the force a decade ago.

Police said all four officers were shot by Lovelle Mixon, 26, of Oakland, a parolee who fled after shooting the first two officers after a traffic stop, then shot two more after a SWAT team entered an apartment in which he was hiding. Mixon was also killed by officers, police said.

Relatives and co-workers of the four officers requested privacy as they absorbed the enormity of the deaths. Oakland had never lost even two officers on the same day, never mind having twice that many mortally wounded.

03-25) 20:36 PDT Oakland -- About 60 people marched and rallied in Oakland on Wednesday to condemn the police and honor Lovelle Mixon, who was killed by Oakland police after he fatally shot four officers Saturday. The protest was organized by the Oakland branch of the Uhuru Movement (Black Panthers), whose flyers for the march declared, "Stop Police Terror."

Mixon's uncle, 38-year-old Curtis Mixon of Fremont, said his nephew had become depressed because he could not find work as a convicted felon. His nephew expected authorities to issue an arrest warrant for missing parole meetings, even though the he felt he was not to blame, he said. LaTasha Mixon, 28, of Sacramento said Sunday her cousin was "not a monster."

Mixon had previously served six years in state prison for assault with a firearm during an armed robbery in San Francisco, the family said. Yeah just your normal "Black Panther" offshoot, growing up in Oakland "hatin" the cops.

8 arrested in 1971 SF cop killing tied to Black Panthers; By MARCUS WOHLSEN, Associated Press Writer Wednesday, January 24, 2007. The hunt for the killers of Sgt. John V. Young seemed plagued by stops and starts before authorities arrested eight men with ties to a militant black power group nearly 36 years after the slaying.

On Aug. 29, 1971, two members of the group, armed with guns and dynamite, stormed a police station in San Francisco's Ingleside neighborhood and fired a shotgun through a hole in the lobby's bulletproof glass, killing Young, 51, and wounding a civilian clerk.

Authorities said the killing was one in a series of attacks by BLA members on law enforcement officials on both coasts. Carried out between 1968 and 1973, the campaign also included the bombing of a police funeral at a San Francisco church and the slayings of the two New York police officers, as well as three armed bank robberies that helped fund their operations, police said.

Seven suspected former BLA members were charged with murder and conspiracy. They are Bell, 59, and Anthony Bottom, 55, both currently incarcerated in New York state; Ray Michael Boudreaux, 64, of Altadena; Richard Brown, 65, of San Francisco; Henry Watson Jones, 71, of Altadena; Francisco Torres, 58, of Queens, New York; and Harold Taylor, 58, of Panama City, Fla.

Lolo Darnell, one of Lovelle Mixon's cousins at the Uhuru Movement (Black Panthers) demonstration in Oakland on Wednesday 3/25/09, said, "He (Lovelle Mixon) needs sympathy too. If he's a criminal, everybody's a criminal." He is what he is !
