Dramatic footage has surfaced on X showing a Juneteenth celebration in Oakland, California, which was transformed into a warzone in the overnight hours. What appears to be gang-on-gang violence sparked an insane shootout on city streets. In a state governed by radical leftist Gavin Newsom, where common sense law and order are seemingly absent, such scenes are becoming more frequent. This incident further exemplifies why people and businesses continue to flee to safer, red states. 

Local media outlet SFGate reported that as many as 5,000 people attended the Juneteenth celebration in Oakland's Lake Merritt area.

Around 2015 local time, a fight broke out at a sideshow involving "motorbikes and vehicles" at Grand and Bellevue avenues—and that was the moment when all hell erupted. 

"During that fight, multiple shots rang out," said Paul Chambers, the OPD's strategic communications manager

OPD said there were no known fatalities. There are some reports that at least four people were injured. 

"No arrests have been made in connection with the shooting," police said, adding, "It is currently unknown if there was a single shooter or multiple shooters involved."

Oakland has been plagued with illegal sideshows, where out-of-control youth drive recklessly on city streets and, in some instances, light cars on fire and loot stores.

This lawlessness stems from disastrous progressive policies that do little to enforce common sense law and order. Failed 'defund the police' and other social and criminal justice reforms have only emboldened criminals.

Meanwhile, cities in California and elsewhere are failing to report crime data to the FBI as conditions worsen. 

According to polls, law-abiding Americans are fed up with progressive policies that have transformed cities into scenes of the video game Grand Theft Auto. Folks are realizing their vote can stop this madness come November.
