The mugging comes weeks after a NBC Bay Area news crew was held up by two armed men who demanded their equipment, only to leave without stealing any equipment after a good guy with a gun – the news crew’s security guard – ordered the would-be robbers to leave.
Earlier in the month, Oaklald Police announced an investigation into two similar incidents which were caught on camera – one in which two women were jumped by two suspects wearing hoodies, and a similar incident in which two men in hoodies pull the same routine with an elderly man holding a cane while standing in front of the Chinese Independent Baptist Church, pistol whipping him.
More white supremacists, we’re sure.
