They were in Oakland.

/Its like saying you got rained on in Seattle.

I'll just leave this here:

Come visit Oak Land!

The crown jewel of the East Bay!

Yeah, it would be more surprising if it were Cairo.
 
2013-08-03 07:52:35 PM  
Oakland, when Detroit just doesnt suck bad enough for you.
 
2013-08-03 07:53:34 PM  
So the security guard was there to do what exactly?
 
2013-08-03 07:55:28 PM  
Oakland, when you need something to make Camden look like an attractive place to live
 
2013-08-03 07:55:38 PM  
You'd be safer in Cairo.
 
2013-08-03 07:55:52 PM  
Actually had it been Cairo there would have been rape involved.

To take notes for the lawsuit the ABC employees will rightfully file?

WTF?
I thought they only liked to steal stuff they could sell.
This crap is like buying tickets to the joint.

Officials say three men accosted the KGO-TV crew around 2:30 p.m. Friday in West Oakland. At least one had a gun.

/sighs, another example of hiding the race of the suspects. They seem to have no problem saying "white males, hispanic males, " but if they were black, they wont give a suspect description at all. Don't hate, you have seen it just as much as i have.

Where could they even hock professional news gear? Will a seedy pawn shop even take it because where are they going to unload it? Is there some underworld market for news gear thats only known in the industry?
 
2013-08-03 08:07:12 PM  
The incident is the latest robbery targeting media people carrying around expensive equipment.

Fixt.

Maybe they're just going to shoot really high quality YouTube videos.  Just as soon as they figure how to hold the camera in portrait mode.

B. E. T. now has a news crew.

Not all of oakland sucks.  There are actually some high end neighborhoods in that city.  However, if you don't know the city you can easily end up "on the wrong side of town", which is the majority of that shiat-hole city.

csb: before moving to the Bay Area, my buddy and I came up from L.A. for a few days to find a house or apartment.  Because we didn't know which areas where bad, we had to drive around to learn for ourselves.  So with our apartment list in hand (from a service, before it was all on the internet) we drive to what sounded like a great place in Oakland.  As we're driving slowly up the street looking for the address, some homeboy walk in front of our moving vehicle giving us the stinkeye and an attitude of "what you gonna do?"  We decided if he pulled a gun we'd run his sorry ass over.  We stopped looking for the apartment on that street.  That was all we needed to know we weren't going to live there.  We drive past hommie, who was still giving us the stinkeye, and out of Oakland.  We never considered any address in Oakland after that.

A note to terrorists who obtain a nuke.  Consider Oakland.

Why are people like you so obsessed with race? There wasn't  any description of the suspects  at all. If TFA  describedthe suspects and left out race, you'd have a point. But what you have here is nothing but a red flag that you're obsessed with race.

A few years ago, I flew to San Fran to visit my then girlfriend, but I was able to fly into Oakland for way cheaper, so I did. Thank God though. That news crew could have been me. Just kidding. She wasn't my girlfriend, just a good friend but we did have a lot of sex that week. But don't be jealous because it wasn't that great.

Explain to me how someone could commit armed robbery in California when they have the strictest gun control laws in the country? This story must be some kind of hoax I tell ya.

I'm not sure it's about the money, although I could be completely wrong.

I worked in news in San Francisco for many moons, and left the business 2 years ago. At the time I left there was an incredible animosity and antagonism towards news crews. It got really bad during the Oscar Grant riot. The Occupy stuff was the icing on the cake. News crews are the bad guys now, and are very easy targets.

I used to deliver Debris boxes in that ghetto ass town.  I saw a drive by on International and quit my job that night.  There is no reason to ever go to Oakland.

If news crews didn't always seek out the most extreme whack job they can find at any political rally, maybe there wouldn't be so much animosity.   You became the bad guys because of your own actions.

Makes sense, the way they see it news crews are ratting them out by reporting crime, like they say on the street, snitches get stitches.

That's right, get your biatch ass back to hell a, cracker ass honkey. Not wanted here. What a stupid thing to say.

Note to terrorists, please don't blow up anything. Thanks.

Most of Oakland is pretty good. I did look at the crimemapper.com report for a west oakland loft I was interested in... 4 murders and over 400 robberies and assaults within about a 4 block radius this year so far. Um, no thanks.

I think that was his point...the media and other-is obsessed with race until it's "that one". It is a bit weird.

So Al Davis had put together the perfect Raiders team for '98. The only thing he was missing was a good quarterback. He had scouted all the colleges, and even the high schools, and he couldn't find a ringer quarterback that would ensure a SuperBowl win.

Then one night, watching CNN, he saw a war zone in Bosnia. In the background, out of the corner of his eye, he spotted a young Bosnian soldier with a truly incredible arm. He threw a hand grenade straight into a 15th story window 200 yards away, ka-boom! He threw another hand grenade into a group of about 10 soldiers a good 110 yards away-ka-blooey! A car passes going 90 miles an hour-bulls-eye! Right into the barely open window.

"I've got to get this guy," Al says to himself. "He has the perfect arm!" So he brings him to the states and teaches him the great game of football. Predictably, the young man breaks all the NFL records for completed passes, and the Raiders go on to win the SuperBowl.

The young Bosnian is lionized as the Great Hero of SuperBowl XXXI, and when Al asks him what he wants, all the young man wants to do is to call his mother. "Mom," the young man says into the receiver, "I just won the SuperBowl." "I don't want to talk to you,"
the old woman says. "You deserted us. You're not my son."

"I don't think you understand, mother" the young man pleads. "I just won the greatest sporting event in the world. I'm in the middle of thousands of adoring fans."

"No, let me tell you," the mother implores. "At this very moment, there are gun shots all around us. The neighborhood is a pile of rubble. Your two brothers were beaten within an inch of their lifes last week, and this week your sister was raped in broad daylight...." I'll never forgive you for making us move to Oakland.
