1. I'm no defender of the police

But maybe those guys did commit a crime and she has no idea they did. As much as this stinks, we don't know all the facts. And she thinks she is unsafe with police, try going around town when there is no police. She was too young to see the April 29th 1992 riot we had in LA. That's a good example of what happens when no police are around.

I know if was from the Rodney King verdict, but if news broke that the police will no longer patrol the streets, all hell will break loose eventually.

Cops are a love/hate relationship. Hate them when you get caught, but love to see them when you need them.

2. She's in Oakland; it appears to be even worse there than in LA.

 

If they'd run, would police have opened fire? With that many police cars, one could have pulled up ahead of them.

And I believe this occurred in front of an Occupy Oakland march planning session, which is why you hear them talking about marching. Cops have drawn guns (and real shotguns) in front of Occupy LA before, just to intimidate.
