Oakland/Richmond PD Critical Incident Video, Officer-Involved Shooting – April 16th, 2020
ONN – On April 16, 2020, the Oakland Police Department and the Richmond Police Department were involved in an officer-involved shooting that occurred in the City of Richmond.
When the Department has a critical incident involving our officers, we believe in transparency with our community, along with our effort to share information with our community.
Our goal in releasing this video is to allow the public to view the material in a clear and straightforward manner as possible, without editorial comment. We train to minimize the use of force and we take all uses of force very seriously.
Whenever a life is lost, it is tragic. We know there is concern in our community, whenever force is used. That is why we have provided you as much context as possible in this incident.
When an officer uses deadly force, there are reviews and investigations, we follow protocols that are in place. There are multiple independent investigations taking place, through the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office, Richmond Police Department, the City of Oakland’s Community Police Review Agency, and the Oakland Police Department.
Note from Zennie62Media and Oakland news Now: this video-blog post demonstrates the full and live operation of the latest updated version of an experimental Zennie62Media , Inc. mobile media video-blogging system network that was launched June 2018. This is a major part of Zennie62Media , Inc.’s new and innovative approach to the production of news media. What we call “The Third Wave of Media”. The uploaded video is from a vlogger with the Zennie62 on YouTube Partner Channel, then uploaded to and formatted automatically at the Oakland news Now site and Zennie62-created and owned social media pages. The overall objective is smartphone-enabled, real-time, on the scene reporting of news, interviews, observations, and happenings anywhere in the World and within seconds and not hours. Now, news is reported with a smartphone: no heavy and expensive cameras or even a laptop are necessary. The secondary objective is faster, and very inexpensive media content news production and distribution. We have found there is a disconnect between post length and time to product and revenue generated. With this, the problem is far less, though by no means solved. Zennie62Media is constantly working to improve the system network coding and seeks interested content and media technology partners.
