A white woman called the police on a black family who was having a barbecue at Lake Merritt, in Oakland. The woman claims that the family was barbecuing in a designated barbecue zone, but was using a charcoal grill, verses a non charcoal grill.
The video above got pretty intense. In the video, one of the family members even mentions that the fire department drove by multiple times and even waived hello. Seems like this woman has a problem with Black people to be honest. Once police arrived she ended up sobbing.
I think that council member, Lynette Gibson McElhaney said it best, I think it is really incumbent on all of us that when we call police, it is for emergency purposes." Here is an update via KRON 4.
