You might want to start wearing bullet-proof vests to Raiders games

Listen carefully, people: Do not — we repeat: do not! — get mistaken for gang members’ rivals while tailgating in Oakland.

Otherwise, you could end up in the hospital.

Four football fans tailgating Saturday night outside an Oakland Coliseum parking lot in preparation for Sunday’s sold-out Raiders game were shot by suspected gang members who mistook them for rivals, police said. None were killed.

Yes, yes, there are gangs in Oakland. Please understand this; we’re trying to raise awareness. We’re not happy about it either, being born there and all, but it’s a fact that we’ve come to terms with.

That wasn’t the end of the weekend fun:

In an unrelated incident Sunday, a man was shot in the upper thigh or groin area after the Raiders game, police said. The shooting happened in the 66th Avenue parking lot about 4:30 p.m.

The man pictured is not considered a suspect, though he did stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.

  2. Why would anyone ever fuck with a Raiders fan???

  3. Happy Halloween to Raiders fans. Todays the only day you dont look like an idiot. OOOOOO scary its a gang member dressed as Darth Vader. Bring your costumes to the Bears game and see what happens.
