Lovell Mixson, a parolee, killed 4 Oakland police officers before being killed himself. Authorities say a day before the shooting the 26-year-old fugitive parolee was linked by DNA to the February rape of a 12-year-old girl who was dragged off the street at gunpoint. This piece of fucking trash is being lauded as a "hero" by a group called the Uhuru Movement. Mixon's cousin, called him "a true hero, a soldier."
"This is the real Lovelle," she said, holding a picture of a smiling Mixon with his wife. "We do apologize for what he did to the officers' families. But he's not a monster."
