OAKLAND, Calif. - A man linked to a black Muslim group was among two men who turned themselves in to police Tuesday for their roles in vandalizing a pair of stores for selling alcohol to blacks, police said.
Investigators said it was too soon to say whether the vandals were connected to Monday's fire and kidnapping of clerk at the same store ransacked by a gang of black men in suits and bow ties three days earlier.
Yusef Bey IV, 19, and Donald Cunningham, 73, turned themselves in to face charges including robbery, felony vandalism and terrorist threats, Oakland Deputy Police Chief Howard Jordan said. Police obtained warrants charging four others with similar crimes and expected to make arrests.
I'm not saying no one should drink any liquor, even though it propably would be better for all of us if we didn't, but it is ridiculous how ever Black working class to poor neighborhood has a liqour store on every other corner. And we all know the destructive affects that excesive alcohol consumption contributes to. Alcohol leads to more domestic violence, health problems, death, and destruction than any other drug in the U.S. - or in the world for that matter.
