The Killer. Lovelle Mixon, was a felon, who served a 5 year sentence for assault with a deadly weapon. At the time of the traffic stop Mixon was wanted on an arrest warrant for probation violations and was a suspect in multiple rape cases.
Mixon open fired on Officers following a traffic stop, killing both Officers.
As ABC News reports, below, Police received a “tip” on Mixon’s location and SWAT was called in. After entering the building in question, but prior to gaining access to Mixon’s younger sister’s apartment, where Mixon was hiding, Mixon opened fire with what has been dscribed as an “assault weapon”, killing two additional officers.
ABC News and the San Francisco Chronicle report that “Lovelle Mixon may be tied to as many as six rapes — including that of a 12- year-old-girl. Investigators had previously said Mixon’s DNA was linked the day before the shootings to the rape of a 12-year-old girl last month in East Oakland. They say the girl was dragged off the street at gun point before being sexually assaulted. Now they say they’ve found a similar pattern in at least five others. http://abclocal.go.com/kgo/story?section=news/local/east_bay&id=6727430&rss=rss-kgo-article-6727430
KRON in Oakland reports that, “The Alameda County Assistant District Attorney is confirming to KRON 4 that just a day before a parolee killed four Oakland police officers, he was linked by DNA evidence to the rape of a 12-year-old girl. Assistant DA Tom Rogers tells KRON 4’s Christine Connolly that on February 5th the girl was taken off the street, had a bag placed over her head and was taken to an abandoned building in Oakland where numerous sexual acts were performed. Around 3 p.m. Friday, just a day before the shootings, the state DNA lab sent the Oakland PD information that DNA found on the girl was a match to gunman Lovelle Mixon. Police did not immediately issue an arrest warrant for the 26-year-old because officials say further tests needed to be done to make sure it was a solid match. Investigators say Mixon was the primary suspect in the rape and that they are looking to see if there are any connections to other rapes. State prison officials also note that Mixon was a suspect in a murder last year, but was never charged. Officials confirm to KRON 4 that Mixon executed one of the officers by standing over and shooting him in the head. They did not say which one was shot in this fashion.
Given these facts, how does one explain the “Community Organizers” Rally to support and Honor this felon, rapist and murder. What type of Community is this?
How about the young, 12 year old, black girl who was terrorized at gun point and raped?
Is there a voice in the Black Community that will speak out against this nonsense. A felon, a rapist, a cop killer. Being Black doesn’t make one right, being White doesn’t make one evil. There is no excuse for Racism. There is no excuse for Black Racism. It is time for rational members of this Black Community to speak out. One injustice does not cancel out another.
Youth Uprising? The Name says it all. The problem is obvious. To call a murdering rapist and convicted felon a “Hero” leaves little room for dialogue. Mixon a hero? If this is the type of individual the Community holds up as a hero – there is no dialogue to be had. I want no part of this Community and there is no place in my Community for these individuals. There is nothing to be negotiated here. There is no middle ground.
Update: Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown is speaking out against the protest at this time. 08:10 pm (03/27/09). Details to follow.
A simple test: What would these protestors be saying if the “Cop Killer” was White and the slain Officers Black. Its time for responsible leaders to speak out against this nonsense.
The Officers will be buried tommorow, Friday, March 27th. May God Bless and keep them and may God provide comfort to their families. May God touch the young girl(s) victimized by this felon and give her/them the peace necessary to heal, both physically and emotionally.
