this episode is no longer available

It’s the second one in two weeks here in Oakland and just one of far too many to keep track of that has taken place in the Bay Area, California. From San Jose to Sunnyvale and beyond.. Seems like everyday we keep hearing and seeing these shootings occur.

This latest one happened in the Lake Merritt area on MacArthur and Van Buren…around 8:30 yesterday morning. We spoke with a witness named Mia (last name not disclosed) who described seeing a young man who was shot, lying on the ground bleeding and twitching while she and others were prevented from tending to him or give him aid.

Later we speak with the author of Ferguson is America, Jamala Rogers about the new happenings in Ferguson Missouri.
