ONN – Oakland: Fake Body Bag And Hangman Noose Found At Lake Merritt On Lakeshore Side Thursday Morning June 17
Kenzie Mouton, the man who was the victim of the racist 911 call and rant by BBQ Becky Jessica Schulte, posted those photos that were taken by Tina Marie and Davey D Cook, on Facebook.
It was Tina Marie who took the photos and Davey D was asked to come down to the area – this sad scene at 9:11 AM PST this Thursday morning at Lake Merritt and on the Lakeshore Avenue side. Kenzie posted the photos on Facebook and wrote “Fake Body Hanging From A Tree! Cut Down By OPD This Morning. But Hey Let’s Say It’s Exercise Equipment As Some Pointed Out!”
This horrible and horrifying episode for Oakland started on Tuesday, with social media reports of one hangman noose found at Lake Merritt. That led to Oakland Councilmember Lynette Gibson McElhaney saying on Facebook that the Oakland Police were investigating it, and that its appearance was related to the use of exercise equipment.
But, in her press conference on that Tuesday of this week, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf stated that not one, but several hangman noose’s were found around Lake Meritt. That said, the Mayor made no mention of fake body bags.
There’s clearly nothing related to exercise equipment in this example of an obviously racist event. Moreover, if the Oakland Police Department knew this scene was there, but did not tell the Mayor of Oakland the whole story, that’s much worse.
UPDATE: Famed Hip Hop Journalist Davey D came on to talk about the problem last week:
And a man named Victor Sengbe stepped up to tell a mainstream ABC 7 media that the nooses were not a sign of hate. Personally, I call bullshit. Because as Victor Sengbe’s saying garbage, the rest of us are pissed off about the effigy on the other side of the Lake on the same day. Did anyone ask him if that was OK? Did they tell the police? And why is he allowed to hang swings and a damn hangman noose on a tree in a public park, anyway, when I can’t even BBQ without a freaking permit? What’s that?
Best way to prevent this is to stop the action of making swings and hangman nooses in the Lake Merritt park – currently there’s no rule against it. That should be added to the list of regulations.
Stay tuned for updates.
