California Gunman Kills Four Cops While Violating Parole - Save All the Expungement Hypocrisy!

Dear God - more cops killed. The idiots in Illinois are getting all Progressive to put money in Expungment Attorney Tamara Holder's purse. She is a rising star in the scum-bag legal community - watch out G. Flint Taylor and Jon Loevy! Holder trolls for Criminals in violence racked housing projects and in the Sun Times. Holder was part of Jesse Jackson's Sleepover resulting from the drug-pinch riots at the Harold Ickes Homes a while back.

Now Tamara has Lefty journalists and Chicago's leading race-baiter at the Sun Times panning for gold on her Expungement Claim.

In California three cops were murdered by a parole violater and another officer clings to life.

Man violates parole, kills three cops in California

Monday, Mar 23, 2009, Page 7
A man wanted for violating his parole killed three police officers and gravely wounded another in two shootings on Saturday, the first after a routine traffic stop and the second after a massive manhunt ended in gunfire, authorities said.

The gunman was also killed.

The violence began on Saturday afternoon when two officers stopped a Buick sedan in Oakland, California, police spokesman Jeff Thomason said. The driver opened fire, killing one officer and seriously wounding the second.

The gunman then fled on foot, police said, leading to an intense manhunt by dozens of Oakland police, California Highway Patrol officers and Alameda County sheriff deputies. Streets were roped off and an entire area of east Oakland closed to traffic.

About two-and-a-half hours later, officers, acting on an anonymous tip, found the suspect barricaded inside an apartment building, police said.

Police said the gunman fired an assault rifle at officers who came into the building to arrest him. Two members of the SWAT team were killed and a third was grazed by a bullet, police said.

Acting Oakland police chief Howard Jordan said police returned fire, killing a man they identified as 26-year-old Lovelle Mixon of Oakland.

The slain officers were identified as Sergeant Mark Dunakin, 40, who was killed at the first shooting, and sergeants Ervin Romans, 43, and Daniel Sakai, 35, who were killed at the second location.

Officer John Hege, 41, was in serious condition.

Somber officers at the police station consoled each other.

“This is probably one of the worst incidents that has ever taken place in this history of the Oakland police department,” Thomason said.

“[Mixon] was on parole and he had a warrant out for his arrest for violating that parole. And he was on parole for assault with a deadly weapon,” Oakland police Deputy Chief Jeffery Israel said.

People lingered at the scene of the first shooting. About 20 bystanders taunted police.

Tension between police and the community has risen since the fatal shooting of unarmed 22-year-old Oscar Grant by a transit police officer at an Oakland train station on Jan. 1.

This past week Pop Eyed Racist and unoriginal thinker, Mary Mitchell reacting to other persons' journalism and reports and Leftist STNG Barista Angela Caputo) shouted out this:

Because African Americans account for about 61 percent of Illinois parolees, it is the group most impacted by the arrogance of this state agency.

So, it is quite ironic that it was black community leaders who publicly supported Blagojevich during the corruption scandal that jettisoned him from office.

The failure of the Illinois State Police to expunge and seal criminal records when ordered to do so by a judge also has likely resulted in people who honestly thought they had complied with the law losing their jobs after a background check.

Also, since applying for an expungement costs $60 -- a fee that many applicants are hard-pressed to come by -- the state agency has effectively scammed these applicants when it refused to obey the judge's orders to seal or expunge the records.

Like I said, this is a mess.

One way to start unraveling it is to bring Trent before the legislative body to explain himself.

Maybe his department has been too tainted by Blagojevich's disdain for ex-offenders.

Or maybe, given an environment where no one seemed to have been in charge, Trent mistakenly thought he could play by his own rules.

Whatever the case, the agency is guilty of abusing its vast power to determine what is right from what is wrong.

The rush to expunge Criminal Records puts money in Expungment Tamara Holder's pockets, but it gets cops killed and endangers society. Tamara Holder pops up wherever Criminals in our community need more camouflage and cover. Expungment is a big help to career criminals.

God Bless all the families of the slain officers in California and here in Illinois as well.

I am Tamara Holder and while I respect your opinion of me, your blog is misleading.

Let me correct you in saying that an expungement does NOT clear criminal records of convicted felons. An expungement is for someone who has no convictions whatsoever. This person has arrests or non-convictions.

Also, let me correct you in saying that I have fought for answers from Chicago Police & Jody Weis for the family of slain Chicago Police officer Jose Vazquez who was gunned down outside of his home just over 2 years ago. We are all waiting for some answers on who killed this wonderful husband/brother/son.

So, as we are all entitled to our own opinions, I appreciate the opportunity to clarify your blog.

And I welcome a meeting with you at any time. It's not polite to judge people who you do not know.

I look forward to answering any of your other questions.

Thank You Ms. Holder.

You are most generous with your time and talent.

This unfortunate event is horrific. As was the Alabama shooting spree. Combine these with next month's planned school shooting, and hello assault weapons ban again!

I'm Kelly Virella, The Chicago Reporter writer who broke the story about the Illinois State Police's defiance of court orders sealing criminal records. If you haven't had the chance to read it yet, here's a link.

As you can see, the problem is that the Illinois State Police usurped judges' authority to decide who deserves sealing and expungement. That creates major problems like the ones described in the story. It also violates the law. One good thing about America is that we generally follow the law. At this time, in Illinois, only judges can decide who deserves expungement or sealing.

As you can also see, my story and the Illinois State Police's defiance of the law has nothing to do with the death of those four Oakland cops. The shooter was paroled, not expunged or sealed.

I would ask you not to associate my story and the media wave that followed it with this tragic Oakland incident. I am former Oakland resident and consider it home. I love the town and grieve with all the people who love peace and justice.
