    Federal Officer Murdered in Oakland Friday Identified as Patrick Underwood

    Worked for Homeland Security’s Federal Protective Service and was “providing security at the U.S. courthouse in Oakland near one of the increasingly violent protests”

    On Friday, a white van pulled up outside the Ronald V. Dellums Federal Building in Oakland, and someone opened fire on two federal security officers.

    One of whom, Dave Patrick Underwood, was killed.  He’s been identified by friends and family, including by his sister Kisha Evans, via Facebook.

    The AP reports:

    A federal law enforcement officer in California was killed and another critically injured after being shot while providing security at the U.S. courthouse in Oakland near one of the increasingly violent protests unfolding around the country.

    “When someone targets a police officer or a police station with an intention to do harm and intimidate — that is an act of domestic terrorism,” Department of Homeland Security Acting Deputy Secretary Ken Cuccinelli said at a Washington, D.C., news conference on Saturday.

    The Oakland shooting occurred after a white van pulled up outside the Ronald V. Dellums Federal Building at about 9:45 p.m. Friday. Someone opened fire at two contract security officers who worked for Homeland Security’s Federal Protective Service, killing one and critically wounding the other, authorities said.

    Family and friends have identified the officer killed in the shooting as Dave Patrick Underwood.

    Authorities have reportedly not concluded whether or not the shooting was connected to the George Floyd riots taking place in cities across the nation, including in Oakland.

    The AP continues:

    A suspect hasn’t been named and it wasn’t immediately known whether authorities have determined if the shooting was connected with the protest.

    Federal officials said they’re seeing more threats and assaults against law enforcement officers at protests and said they will step up security measures to protect them.

    Officials said they’re looking into the possibility that organized groups are using the protests as a cover to carry out these acts of domestic terrorism.

    “There are currently threats by some to attack police stations and federal buildings, Cuccinelli said. “That violence not only won’t be tolerated, we are also committed to ensuring that it won’t succeed anywhere, anywhere.”

    OK. Now nobody needs to buy Sinclair Lewis’ book.

    You already know how it ends. The totalitarians win. Or, rather, they’ve metastasized into Antifa. Damn dictators. They’re just too good at metastasizing. There it is, in a nutshell. The Cliff notes.

    My apologies to the Lewis family for the lost royalties.
