Oakland Protesters Record Themselves Destroying Cop Car

Oakland protesters have always raised the bar when it comes to activism against police and this past weekend was no different when a mob of people surrounded a police car with flashing emergency lights and destroyed it.

Yelling, “fuck the police,” the crowd jumped on top of Oakland police car, shattering windows and smashing the roof down while recording early Sunday morning.

At first, it appears as if an officer may even be inside the car because it looked as if the car pulled onto the street with wailing sirens, but after watching the video, it appears as if the car was parked in the street with  nobody inside.

The vandalism went on for more than a minute without police intervention and it doesn’t appear as if any arrests were made, judging by [__news reports__](http://kron4.com/2015/11/15/video-sideshow-in-oakland-gets-violent-for-police/) out of Oakland.

But later on Sunday, Oakland police shot and killed a man they say approached them with a fake gun.

The officers were wearing body cams, but they were not recording at the time of the shooting.

They did, however, turn them on after the shooting, even though that video has not been released.

> “It is absolutely made to look like a real pistol,” Oakland Police Chief Sean Whent said.

> The officers were wearing body cameras, but the cameras were not turned on at the time, he said. The cameras were turned on after the shooting, he said.
> Whent said the Police Department’s body camera policies do not require the devices to be turned on at all times. The cameras must be turned on when an officer is approaching or contacting a person, he said.
> In this case, the officers were filling out paperwork and didn’t approach the man, Whent said. The man approached the officers.
> He said the officers were shocked when they found out the gun wasn’t real.

Both incidents took place during a sideshow, which is an illegal gathering of citizens who race cars or perform stunts with their cars.

More than 700 cars were involved in this weekend’s sideshow, resulting in two arrests and ten vehicles impounded, according to the California Highway Patrol.

One of the people arrested had led police on a two-and-a-half mile chase before surrounding.

Police have not released the name of the man they killed.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
