  1. this just repeatedly states the cops’ position and provides no evidence for it. cops lie

  2. It sounds like the school suggested those involved seek legal representation before incriminating themselves and the PD are upset.

  3. They probably told the kids to get attorneys and naturally the police found the fact humans have rights to be incredibly offensive and threatening.

  4. Where are the texts? What do they say? Seems like a simple thing to get some screenshots from the “source”. I’m not saying it isn’t true, but without any evidence it’s just pure speculation and makes the article read like police propaganda. The bias here is further shown because of the lack of qualifying “allegedly” in the headline. Very poor and irresponsible “journalism” here.

  5. Talk to lawyers, not police.

  6. That may have been one of the most poorly written articles I’ve ever had the displeasure of stumbling through.

  7. From the post:
    “OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) — Another disturbing headline about the shooting in Oakland comes from the ABC7 I-Team, law enforcement sources tell us school officials have sent text messages to shooting victims, instructing them not to cooperate with police.

    We’re hearing it’s a pattern, and some parents at the school are worried that a lack of action by school officials after previous incidents may have led to this escalation in violence.

    Law enforcement sources tell the I-Team, Oakland police investigators have obtained text messages from the shooting victims’ phones in which Rudsdale school officials tell them not to cooperate with police.

    During a virtual news conference, the I-Team’s Dan Noyes asked Oakland Police Chief LeRonne Armstrong about that information. He answered, “Our investigation will be thorough, it will be complete and we will exhaust all options to figure out what happened on this campus. But at this time, I will not speak to any evidence that we’ve recovered at this time.”

    He would not deny it, but Oakland Unified School District spokesman John Sasaki did say, “If you’re asking me if our school told students not to talk to police, that is not correct.”

    Former Oakland City Council President Ignacio De La Fuente says, his connections inside the police department tell him, Rudsdale school officials have a history of failing to protect students, and that Oakland Unified has not done enough either.

    “If you remember, the school district used to have their own police, then OPD was serving some of the schools with campuses, they actually threw him out because they didn’t want uniformed police officers on their campuses, these things happen because we allow them to happen,” said De La Fuente.

    The I-Team’s law enforcement sources tell us this is part of a disturbing pattern by officials at that school – a lack of cooperation with police, especially after one troubling incident just weeks ago.

    “A kid was stabbed. He was bleeding. He was pistol-whipped. A gun was discovered at school. And yet the school district did nothing about it,” said BayTech parent Mario Juarez.

    Police confirmed in August, a student was stabbed and pistol-whipped at the school. And my police sources tell me that Rudsdale obstructed the investigation:

    School officials recovered the gun used in the attack.
    Kept it from police for hours, until finally turning it over in a zip lock bag.
    Sources also say the school would not let police perform follow-up interviews with students.
    School officials said, “They had it under control.”
    The news is so frustrating, especially for parents whose children lived through the shooting Wednesday. Mario Jaurez’s son is a 15-year-old sophomore at BayTech, a charter school in that same King Estates Campus.

    Juarez told us, “He’s so innocent. He said that ‘I thought it were firecrackers.’ It makes me cry because I wish there were firecrackers.”

    Sources tell the I-Team that police know who the suspects are from that previous event, and are investigating if they’re responsible for Wednesday’s shooting. Some police personnel is angry. In their words, “People got shot and they didn’t have to.”

    In response to several questions from the I-Team, OUSD Spokesman John Sasaki sent this email:

    “After the shooting on Wednesday, Rudsdale High School did not tell any student not to cooperate with police. With regard to your question about the incident last month, our school staff at Rudsdale and other schools do not obstruct police investigations. Furthermore, any question about how the Wednesday shooting might have been avoided is pure speculation, and in this instance, the suggestion that OUSD prevented police from doing their jobs is false and inflammatory.”

  8. The article literally contradicts itself. This is the end of the article:

    “In response to several questions from the I-Team, OUSD Spokesman John Sasaki sent this email:

    “After the shooting on Wednesday, Rudsdale High School did not tell any student not to cooperate with police. With regard to your question about the incident last month, our school staff at Rudsdale and other schools do not obstruct police investigations. Furthermore, any question about how the Wednesday shooting might have been avoided is pure speculation, and in this instance, the suggestion that OUSD prevented police from doing their jobs is false and inflammatory.”

  9. Sounds sketchy as fuck…. So let’s see the text message. We demand accountability from the police, I expect the same from the news as well.

  10. Pure police propaganda.

  11. This is all just a bunch of accusations made by police that the school district wasn’t helpful enough to them and there’s no evidence to substantiate those claims. Where is the proof?

  12. And yet, when there’s a question of police brutality or a police involved shooting, good luck finding one of them to talk to anyone without a lawyer.

    Rules for thee, not for me.

  13. Now *that’s* sketchy as fuck.

  14. Like a boss. Fuck the police.

  15. Talk about a district that needs to clean house… Checks getting cashed if there’s even the slightest indication of the school obstructing. Crazy.

  16. Great thing about school staff/ admin is they are dumb. Leaving text messages is leaving an OBVIOUS trace. Easy to follow. If true will be found AND those involved will be prosecuted. It is illegal to obstruct an ongoing investigation. If not true nothing to worry about.

  17. School: “we suggest talking to a lawyer ”

    Cops: “I see you woke up this morning and chose violence”

  19. Sensational-sounding headlines are often misleading and omit important details, so I’m skeptical.

    That being said, after seeing how badly the Uvalde PD handled their school shooting (both during and after), I wouldn’t fault most schools for telling families not to talk to law enforcement.
