Most serious crimes in protest by Oakland residents


Oakland's police chief had previously said three quarters of the 78 arrests made on July 8 were people who lived outside /*Oakland*/. But, the San Francisco Chronicle reports that police records show the majority of the people arrested were cited and released on misdemeanor charges. However, the 15 people booked on suspicion of felony charges, 10 gave Oakland address.

On Monday, a judge ruled three of the people charged with felonies will stand trial.

The looting and protests came after the involuntary manslaughter conviction of former BART officer Johannes Mehserle for the shooting death of Oscar Grant.
