Mayor Dellums asked NOT to speak by at least one of the officers’ families. Completely understandable since he’s not doing his job to make the city safe.

And here’s a quote from a church pastor near where Mixon shot the officers, saying the SAME THING:

“Jason Hodge, a spokesman for Prayer Mission Christ Holy Church, located a block away from the spot where two of the officers were shot, said “there’s just a real sense of concern about the number of young people we’re producing with such harsh feelings toward police.”

Hodge said members of the church generally feel that Mixon’s personal problems, such as a lack of a solid family life, led to the shootings, rather than a problem with law enforcement.

“There’s a real sense among members that things are getting out of control,” Hodge said. “There’s a total breakdown of family values being taught, and that’s really what we think we see with this young man.”

“We’re hopeful that our city leadership will help get people unified and come up with solutions, because there seems to be a general lack of direction in Oakland right now,” he said. “There’s not enough support for the police, and we’re the ones paying the cost.””
