Thousands of Activists Shut Down the Streets of Oakland to Protest a 'Racist Police'

In Oakland, several thousand people shut down interstate 880 in both directions for hours in a protest against the latest police killings in suburban St Paul Minnesota and Baton Rouge Louisiana. The Oakland police department reported that about 2,000 people marched on the streets, while some activists counted the crowd was as large as 5,000.
