It seems the general public was duped into believing this was new footage about what is going on in Oakland. Davey D has the real story..
So yesterday KRON 4 News decided to do some cheap underhanded sleight of hand BS during their segment People Behaving Badly..where they focused on Oakland Side shows.. They lead into the segment with Pam Moore announcing they have ‘shocking new video’ and then reporter Stanley Roberts Kron kicks off the segment by describing Oakland as the Wild, Wild West.. From there viewers are treated to this ‘new’ ‘shocking’ footage..Only problem is the new footage is from 1-2 and maybe even 3 years ago..
KRON gives no context to videos to let you know if folks are from LA and other far away cities which many of the sideshow footage on YouTube clearly show..
Even though KRON ran a notice at the top of the screen that says courtesy of YouTube it was shown for less than 3 seconds while they put the KRON logo over the videos and make it seem like a reporter was actually out on the turf inter
This could never happen in NYC, there would be a million cops literally on that corner in less than a minute.

OAKLAND (KRON) — It is literally the Wild Wild West out on the mean streets of Oakland.
As social media videos show, Oaktown’s illegal sideshow scene runs rife with a lack of respect for life or the police. One YouTube clip resembles a riot and captures nefarious youth firing guns into the air indiscriminately.
Another video shows how the crowd runs police off its streets.
KRON 4’s Stanley Roberts looks into the shocking and lawless sideshow culture in Oakland.
