Camera Fundraiser for Oakland


Civilians trained to use weapon all have ... cell phone. Please pass it on.


In August 2014 during the days following the murder of Mike Brown, a member of WeCopwatch flew out to Ferguson from Oakland, California. Amidst teargas and live fire, WeCopwatch and residents of Ferguson would fundraise over $1000 to get cameras into the hands of the community.

Finding a way to dismantle cell phones for police by putting something in the bullet proof vests. I would not fall over in shock if that is next. Cell phone restriction 1000 feet of all cops.

to the public. Our society has gotten this a bit turned around.

But to have power these days, people need organizations, thus Obama's "sin" of being a Community Organizer. That's code for helping minorities get organized. Ferguson got the message, now many other communities are starting to take back their power.

We're watching you...powerful concept. Cell phones, not guns.

I love your post and even I get burdened by the onslaught of inequality that I have to be reminded that we are in charge of them not the other way around. Thane goodness for cell phones.
