Change of Direction

There was a Saturday, July 17th, 2010. A Police shooting of a 48-year-old man by BART and OPD Representatives. No more than 2 blocks away.  I heard the pop – followed split second’s later were multiple pops. To my horror as the day unfolds, my neighbors and I were witness’ to this in my opinion… an abuse of power. This was 2 blocks from the BART platform where Oscar Grant was cheated of his future. I really wanted to jump all over that… But the media personnel on site portrayed a different story. The Police Action, and Politics that played out that Saturday Morning on the 1550 Block of 33rd Avenue really needs a better explanation. It seemed that no one cared about Fred Collins… More than I, to ask why. So maybe I can, change that…
Maybe I should write about other subjects.
Maybe one day this page becomes interesting enough where someone gets way down here and thinks about Fred Collins…
