Can't they leave the poor guy alone???
The man who gunned down four Oakland police officers had robbed and raped two women at gunpoint earlier the same day as they set up a food cart in East Oakland, police said Monday.
Authorities are not sure whether Lovelle Mixon, 26, shot the two motorcycle officers who pulled him over on a March 21 traffic stop because he feared police would link him to the rapes.
On Monday, investigators said a state laboratory had confirmed that Mixon's DNA matched that of the man who raped two women the morning of March 21.
The victims were attacked at 5:40 a.m. as they set up a cart from which they sold food to day laborers at High Street and International Boulevard, police said.
Thomason said Mixon approached the women, ages 21 and 23, and pulled a handgun - possibly the semiautomatic pistol used to kill the two motorcycle officers seven hours later, police said.
Mixon robbed the women, then forced them at gunpoint to walk four blocks to 45th Avenue and San Leandro Street, where he raped them, police said.
He fled after the assault, and the women called police.
Every day on this Earth is a better day since the Oakland PD put this punk 6 feet under. Death isn't good enough for him, but I'll take it. How anyone could argue that this man didn't deserve to die is beyond me.
Such an attitude belies not a concern for humanity, but a hatred for it. My opinion is that most anti-capital punishment folks are in reality extremely cruel people, and sincerely enjoy the pain inflicted on innocents.
