Shari'a in Oakland?

Hat tip to bareknucklepolitics.

11/27 8PM

A group of about 12 black men, dressed in suits with bow ties, enter a liquor store in Oakland. They tell the owner that "he should not sell alchohol to African Americans", then go about smashing up the place. The whole thing is caught on security video.
They left, without stealing anything, and went to another liquor store in the area and did the same thing again.
Calypso Louis claims he knows nothing about it.

If this isn't the Nation of Islam kooks, it's a damn good frame-up job. My thought is that it probably is those loons and they are feeling inspired by the rioting in Europe.

11/29 7:15 Update:

They came back, kidnapped the owner, and burned down the liquer store.
The owner was released 12 hours later. He confirmed it was the same group.
Fortunately, the cops have said that they have identified six of the thugs responsible. Will they be traced back to the Nation of Islam?


  • Due to the racial motivation, couldn't that be called a "hate crime"?

  • They are investigating as a hate crime.

    As they should; goose, gander, all that.

  • We just heard on the news that this was not the Nation, but real Muslims.

    Er, I mean, other Muslims.
