“Raiders rule. Fuck the police.”

Monday, January 27th, 2003 · 6 Comments

It was anarchy on the streets of East Oakland last night following the Radiers’ 48-21 Super Bowl slaughtering by the Buccaneers.

As Jen and I watched the TV news coverage of the riots last night, we couldn’t help but laugh our asses off as Raiders-obsessed fans marched through the streets of Oakland, trashing neighborhood businesses and lighting cars on fire. Not that these things are inherently funny — especially if you’re the business owner, car owner, police officer, or tax payer who has to pay to clean up the mess — but something about the way NBC covered the scene struck a particular chord with us. The media — in particular, the television media — always sensationalize everything. And what better venue for sensationalized coverage than a street riot in Oakland? It was covered like the place was a war zone, which is ironic given the current state of the world.

The icing on the cake of last night’s coverage was when the reporter on the scene was shoved away from the camera by members of Raider Nation eager for some facetime. And the reporter continued speaking into his mic.

    Agree completely with your comments about coverage of this farcical riot. My favorite quote by an Oakland resident was, in its entirety: “We done what we do.” KTVU Channel 2 liked it so much they ran it twice.

    People will find any reason to riot. I wouldn’t be surprised if 80% of the rioters weren’t big Raider fans.

    Whatever, the whole world is in a state of confusion. The media sensationalizes EVERYTHING. It’s like the Enquirer, it sells. People need to realize the idiots rioting in Oakland were children. Win or Lose they would have done it. I just want people to realize that not all Oakland fans are criminals.

    To Whom it may concern:

    I AM A VICTIM OF STATE SPONSORED DOMESTIC TERRORISM IN THE LOS ANGELES AREA. { I need to join a group that can serve as witnesses and for some protection. I believe I am more likely to find trustworthy individuals within your organization, since they are well know for their libertarian mindset and distrust of a police state } **If you can offer some local SANTUARY, please contact me immediately** Please read the rest of my story for the reason.

    Sporadically since 1998 and continuously for the last 7 months, I have been harrassed and tortured by what appears to be an LA Street gang, but turns out is something far more sinister.

    I have been tailed everwhere I go, by car and on foot. Everytime I enter or leave a building, or enter or leave my car, there is a car horn that honks twice in the distance. I have been tailgated at extremely close range by vehicles that shine their bright lights on me, and I am often blocked , by several vehicles, when leaving any parking space. I am also shouted at from passing cars, honked at when being passed by certain vehicles, and followed on foot into and out of every building I go into, including my work place. Also, fire trucks pass my apartment in the middle of the night and sound their sirens, (Primarily from Eng Co’s 35 & 76 but the locals always pick up the chase), and this also takes place where I eat breakfast, take my acting class, and go to the gym. I BELIEVE I HAVE SOMEHOW BEEN CHARACTERIZED AS A TERRORIST, AND THAT THE PATRIOT ACT IS BEING ABUSED FOR THIS PURPOSE.

    This is definitely POLICE SPONSORED. The vehicles are usually white with black trim, many are Nissans, and either white or black SUV’s. Over the last couple of months, many of these vehicles are now solid grey. These vehicles also have uniform markings. Many have had the following:

    Rear window American Flag Decals, and red union 76 antenna balls; Red Fire helmet rear window decals; Raiders footbal rear window decals, and antenna balls; praying “Calvin” rear window decals, and many have no license plates, or no front plate, both of which are illegal in California, even for undercover police cars. BTW these markings are also appearing on LAPD, LASD, CHP, LAFD, Parking Enforcement, LADWP, MTA, SBC Communications, Access Paratransit, Checker Cab, and private vehicles from TEAMSTERS local 399.

    Many of the individuals involved wear black or grey stocking caps, (Now, also other colors), many with the Raiders football logo. Most are young latinos, between the ages of 18 – 25, male and female, and many often travel with children.

    The previously mentioned behaviors have had a devastating effect on my state of mind, and I have been driven to the point of suicide at least twice, which is the point of these behaviors. I have also been run off the road once, with 3 other attempts, I was involved in 2 rear end accidents with similar timing , circumstances and vehicles. I have also been subjected to what appears to have been a malicious felony stop in October 2000, by the LA Sherrif’s dept.

    After asking questions of local retail merchants and neighbors about cars with no plates and Raiders decals, I was confronted by a neighbor in my building, a Mr. “Washington Sotomayer” (1248 N Kenmore Ave. apt 4, LA 90029) who stated that he worked for the police, and that he had a “problem.” The police never came as I had done nothing wrong, but Mr Sotomayer’s claim that he works for the police is credible, as I have seen him being chaufered to and from the building in the same type of vehicles involved in my harrassment and torture.

    Let me explain what I know of my tormentors: They are a vigilante group of law enforcement, firefighters, and non-law enforcement security “professionals” and non-law enforcement citizens that have been recruited and trained to use theoretically non-lethal TERRORIST tactics, to terrorize and control people, they believe need extra-judicial treatment, who have not been charged with or convicted of a crime. Why bother with a trial, in this POST 911 world, when you can just punish someone.

    My tormentors are composed of the following groups: LAPD, LASD, CHP, LAFD, Parking enforcement, LADWP, MTA, Access Paratransit, SBC Communications, Checker Cab, TEAMSTERS local 399, Walt Disney Co Security, Securitas, Universal Protection Services, Command Guard Systems {(Ramon Rodriguez, Hawthorne California), this guy runs a real Gestapo} and local retail merchants and neighbors that have been recruited as vigilantees.

    I have been subjected to an enormous amount of “STREET THEATRE,” and everywhere I go, local shop keepers, and others simply go along with it without asking questions. Everyone down the line is willing to follow illegal orders, without the slighest question of my tormentors claims, authority, or the legality or morality of their actions.

    Let me explain how this works: The entire city and county of Los Angeles has been organized as a “TACTICAL UNIT,” meaning that all mobile city services have been, or appear to be trained and are performing surveillance and harrassment. (This may simply be undercover police officers using vehicles from these other departments, but the drivers appear to be the “real thing.”) So, the broader implications for society at large are enormous. **This means that when a high level city or county official gives the order, an individual can find that he is being harrased, and stalked, by what will appear to him to be the entire world, overnight and without warning, or possibility of mitigation** This can happen repeatedly over the lifetime of the targeted individual, and since the perpetrators can usually not be identified, and the “blood” has been spread around, the victim will find himself immediately isolated and helpless. (This is called straight jacketing, in police jargon). **THESE PEOPLE HAVE ALSO INFILTRATED ALL OF MY SOCIAL NETWORKS AND WORKED TIRELESSLY TO SYSTEMATICALLY DESTROY ALL OF MY RELATIONSHIPS AND HAVE DONE SO REPEATEDLY OVER MORE THAN THE LAST 5 YEARS. {There goal is to make sure I don’t get “STARTED” ANYWHERE IN THE COMMUNITY. The method they are currently using is to get my friends to help them “SETUP ME UP.” They will use verbal tricks of one kind or another, to try to get me to say something, anything of an antisocial nature, in the presence of witnesses. And, in my case, they will diliberately get my friends to sit and dress in a certain way, to let me know they have been there. In my case they have had two of my friends dress in red, white and blue and will get local shop keepers to wear the same WHITE sweater with a big piture of the American Flag on the front. THESE ARE NOT PATRIOTS THEY ARE NAZIS. What disturbs me most is that my friends will continue to help them even after they have gotten NOTHING over periods of months and years. They must be getting externally pressured on an ongoig basis. **This amounts to nothing less than a LIFETIME INVESTIGATION, that will not take NO RESULT for an answer.** Make no mistake THESE PEOPLE ARE EVIL!!!} To the best of my knowledge, there is not yet any above or underground resistance movement against this yet, so a targeted person will have no where to turn, and many, I have read on the internet, commit suicide. This amounts, in many cases, to nothing less than a nonajudicated summary death sentence for the victim.

    Knowing what I know, and having been put through what I have, the “historical” comparisons of George Bush to Adolph Hitler are seeming less like angry rhetoric, and more credible; although, my situation started around May or June 1998, and other victims report their experiences as having started within a similar time frame. I suspect that these tactics started showing up, at least experimentally, at least that long ago; but may have come to full bloom, under the current administration. This leads me to my next, and most important point for your organization and society at large. According to well respected sources, “JR Hobson” being amoung them, police organized vigilante groups, are turning up all over the USA, and amoung our allies in Canada, and overseas, and are already well established. This is more than an imminent danger. The enemy has already invaded our soil, from within. I can’t help wondering, if this is how the Sturmabteilungen, got started in National Socialist Germany. I have to believe it is.

    I have what I believe are “two” situations that have contributed to my predicament. One of which is a love of antique Militaria, primarily German, (which BTW I keep to myself for the most part, and was only discovered, when my internet browsing “Habits,” were surveilled in my workplace). The second situation, is more sensitive, but I am willing to discuss it with you, in a confidential setting. There have been countless attempts to “Set-me up,” so I have a greater need to protect myself here. I believe my interest in antique militaria was used as an excuse to characterize me as a terrorist. Although, it may simply be a combination of my situations that have led to my current predicament.

    I hope someone from your organization is willing to speak to me or meet with me. Regardless of whether or not you believe my issues can be addressed, or should be addressed by your organization, I believe the broader implications for society which I described to you should be.


    ****I AM WILLING TO TRAIN ANY AND ALL INETERESTED MEMBERS OF YOUR ORGANIZATION TO RECOGINIZE THESE PEOPLE AND UNDERSTAND AND HOPEFULLY DEFEAT THEIR POLICE STATE TACTICS. After being tortured and terrorized repeatedly for more than 5 years, and surviving, (at least ’till now), I have much to share. All I’m asking for is a little help. Lemons can be turned into lemonade, even invisible ones, if you get my meaning.

    ****Please come to me first for any additional information****

    PS., Here are some other symbols and codes: Trunk lock covers flipped up, radio antennas with a hook bent at the top, cars that run with one headlight or none at all (contrary to urban legend, these have always been cops), also two horizontal yellow bars on a blue rectangle. Have you noticed all the cafe racer motorcycles riding around town lately, especially in large groups. I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if these were all motorcycle cops. It seems as if Bratton and Baca, have taken all of their officers, out of marked units, and put them in unmarked units. And with the police now dispensing extrajudicial punishment without restraint, I believe what we have now is nothing less than a full flegged GESTAPO. This is now no longer just angry rhetoric.
