Oakland Firefighter didn't know about the recording and alleges police misconduct.



To Oakland Firefighter Keith Jones,
I saw your recent interview on a KPIX television newscast, where you stated that you were profiled by an Oakland police officer and that your sons were traumatized because of this. You also stated, the officer continually demanded that your 9 and 12 year old children hold their hands up and that you were scared the officer might shoot you because the officer had his hand on his gun.
Here's the recording...

And the full article

The problem is the firefighter claimed misconduct, he didn't know he was being recorded.

The video looks as though it's later in the confrontation.

The officer that recorded the event sounded very professional but what happened before the video took place?

Firefighter said that if he and his kids had been white they wouldn't have been harassed.

My understanding is that the police were called out there to shut the building up and when the unit arrived he saw three people inside. He confronted them and told them to put their hands up while he had his hand on his holstered gun.

Claim of racism is incredibly weak

Home boy was wanting his 15 minutes of fame and a check from the city. Heck, he may have gotten to meet Rev Al and Rev Jessie. Good thing the officer was recording the incident.

The question now is why hasn't the firefighter been fired for making false claims against a police officer!
