Taking It Out On Oakland

It's difficult to describe how besieged you can feel around here when a controversial verdict comes down, even one three thousand miles away in another kind of world altogether. You just know that the nameless, faceless few will come into Downtown or a couple of the neighbourhoods and Bam! Pow! a bunch of local shop windows get smashed, a car or two overturned, a few local shopkeepers or staff assaulted.

Jeez guys, show a bit of imagination (if not mercy) — take it up the road to lovely Piedmont or somewhere like Atherton, where they can afford this sort of thing. Just stop taking it out on Oakland….
