LAPD is raiding the Black Riders Liberation Party in Watts

I just got a call that the Black Riders Liberation Party headquarters in Watts is
being raided by multiple squad cars of the LAPD, and all the comrades are being
lined up. Police are claiming that they are executing a probation search to make
sure that General T.A.C.O. (Taking All Capitalists Out) aka Wolverine Shakur is
complying with his probation. TACO was the target of a politically motivated
frame-up on which he served prison time in a plea bargain to gain the release of
other comrades (the Black Rider 3) and is subject to onerous probation conditions,
including an electronic ankle bracelet (slave shackle) that monitors his location at
all times. This attack is no doubt a result of the Black Riders' strong showing at
court yesterday in support of justice for Oscar Grant and his family. They need
legal support and eyes on the LAPD.

Update, 10:55 -- TACO was taken into custody, a probation officer confiscated their
laptop, a helicopter is circling, and many Riders are still cuffed outside. I called
James Simmons, and I believe he is heading over with Thandi Chimurenga.
