Asian man in Oakland dies after chasing down two theives who stole his laptop in a Starbucks.

The two men had been arrested at Reed's sister's home in Oakland at about 4pm Tuesday - just hours after the incident that led to Zeng's death.

Earlier, at about 11.30am, Zeng - a research scientist and engineer for Aspera - had been sitting by the door of a Starbucks in Oakland, using his laptop, when a man in a dark hoodie grabbed his it and ran to a car waiting outside.

Zeng then ran out of the building and chased after the thief in an attempt to get back his laptop.

A witness told ABC7 that Zeng dived through the window of the getaway car as it began to drive off, but that 'there was a struggle and I think they pushed him out and then he got dragged.'

Zeng sustained head injuries after being dragged by the suspects' SUV and flung against a parked car as the SUV sped off. He then died at the hospital shortly before 5pm.

In a probable cause statement, Oakland police said surveillance video showed two people stealing Zeng's laptop, then jumping into the waiting car.

Authorities believe that Reed was driving the getaway car and that Lee had been involved in stealing the laptop, which facilitated the robbery and murder.

After a judge said that Reed was being held without bail - standard practice in California when defendants are first charged with murder - Reed's sister, Shaquila Reed, 30, of Oakland, was said to have shouted 'Why no bail?'

After the hearing, Shaquila and members of Lee's family were said to have gotten into a fight outside the courthouse, requiring four deputies to separate them.

The fight was said to have been due to Lee's family being upset about what Shaquila had told reporters prior to the hearing - that she believed Reed is innocent because he was babysitting her child at her home when the robbery was committed, KPIX reported.

At the time, she told reporters that Reed was palling around 'with the wrong kind of people.'

She also described Reed as being 'a very loving person' and said that killing someone was 'one mistake he wouldn’t make.'

Reed and Lee are expected to be back in court Monday to be assigned attorneys and potentially enter pleas.

Jail records show that Lee's bail was set at $255,000.

Authorities are still investigating the Zeng incident and have not yet released information about the third suspect involved in the robbery.

There are things worth risking your life for - if they had grabbed your daughter or your wife, but certainly not your laptop. And he doesn't sound like lacking for cash. He probably didn't have a backup, but still....

And note the dysgenic process even among those 3 men - the smart accomplished man dying childless in his early 30s while the surviving dumb violent thugs already have popped out multiple kids. And this is a statement without race here - if it were two 2 dumb Chinese blokes mugging a black scientist, then the point would remain.

Future for this world doesn't look bright short of some major changes or wars.

Ever more countries and cities resemble the 3rd world - you cannot hold your phone openly in many Brazilian cities, neither in London around streets with rampant moped crime, guess in California they grab your laptop straight off the street of the Starbucks if it's a more expensive model.

“Shaquila”?

So they were irish?

Anyway, Oakland is the most perfectly diverse city in the USA. But Mr Zeng should have heeded John Derbyshire’s advice in his “The Talk” article (which got him fired from the cuck National Review).

(10a) Avoid concentrations of blacks not all known to you personally.

(10b) Stay out of heavily black neighborhoods.

(10c) If planning a trip to a beach or amusement park at some date, find out whether it is likely to be swamped with blacks on that date (neglect of that one got me the closest I have ever gotten to death by gunshot).

(10d) Do not attend events likely to draw a lot of blacks.

(10e) If you are at some public event at which the number of blacks suddenly swells, leave as quickly as possible.

(10f) Do not settle in a district or municipality run by black politicians.

(10g) Before voting for a black politician, scrutinize his/her character much more carefully than you would a white.

(10h) Do not act the Good Samaritan to blacks in apparent distress, e.g., on the highway.

(10i) If accosted by a strange black in the street, smile and say something polite but keep moving.

The public transportation in these West Coast cities is absolutely disgusting too. I can only imagine how bad San Francisco is. I've seen trash, piss, needles, junkies nodding out, tweekers and drunks acting insane, and a guy shit his pants on the bus. There are bums begging for money and even trying to start fights with people. I saw a lady digging at her ass then start touching a bunch of hand rails. That's how these diseases start spreading. I've heard stories about bums jerking off on the bus too. But the worst part is the smell of human decay, almost like people are rotting alive.

This is hitting Austin as well. Quite a shame.

California is truly messed up. More Dystopian Laws in 2020.

The elite love to test things out in California first.

+ anti-racist school policies - will create little gang members and even more dysfunctional schools
+ anti-small business laws - in line with Agenda 21 of only major corporations surviving until end of century
+ laws that punish daily personal water usage - also Agenda 21 of rationing of everything. Why is this a thing? Some people use less and some more - the water utilities have no trouble calculating this and it wasn't an issue.

It's only an issue when they make it that way. All those laws will destroy that state even further - especially the health care for all illegals will blast California wide open.

People can barely afford bunk beds in SF so they're pushed out to Oakland etc. to commute from there.

High income people in a ghetto'ish area with lots of crime doesn't mix.

Waterways in California are getting contaminated with fecal bacteria because homeless are crapping everywhere:

But some of California’s most prized rivers, beaches and streams are indeed contaminated with levels of fecal bacteria that exceed state limits, threatening kayakers, swimmers — and the state’s reputation as a bastion of environmental protection.

The presence of fecal bacteria in water is usually the result of problems with sewer systems and septic tanks. But water quality officials agree that the source of at least some of the fecal bacteria is California’s growing homeless population, most of whom don’t have reliable access to toilets.

I live in California near the epidemic of homelessness. Perhaps I don't understand the sewer systems but does that also filter though the pipes leading to the water facet in the sink and in the shower? Need I stop drinking water from the tap water?

I think this applies to those who do water sports or who swim in the rivers during the summer. They are coming into direct contact with the contaminated water or accidentally swallowing some while swimming.

Stefan Molyneux did a series "Sunset in the Golden State" that was decent. My favorite is episode four.

Of interest, potentially, to god-pillers, at the end of the last (so far) episode in the series (but not in the playlist, strangely), he teases an episode about re-exploring Christianity (for the social good it offers moreso than faith, granted).

At this rate, I wouldn't be surprised if in 50 years more people were defecating outdoors in California than in India...

I doubt it'll take that long. India is moving in one direction, California the other.

Sewer runoff is typically a direct discharge into the water system and goes directly back into natural sources.

Your tap water is "treated", but it is the treated natural source I noted above. The water cycle puts that same fecal water back into the water table and aquifers eventually and all the City does is UV filter it to rid it of bacteria and then it goes back to your house.

I think this has been the case in California for a long time. When I lived in SoCal in the 1980s I remember everyone being aware that the tap water was recycled sewage water.

The filters and the UV unfortunately don't prevent the recycling of birth control and psychotropic drug runoff as well as a wide array of other chemicals.

This is why the further downstream you are the more likely the water is to...



Technically all the water on the planet is recycled pee to some degree but it's certainly less disconcerting to get your pee-water from a raincloud than the megacity upriver.

Has anyone seen this. Its peak California - several black moms want to steal a house, because housing is a "right". Supported by some leftist California politicians (who clearly dont realize the massive amount of immigrants let in over the past 30 years are a primary cause).

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/moms-4...yre-squatting-in-but-current-owners-disagree/

I actually did a quick read of the article. I wouldn't be surprised if in four or five years we look back at this as being the start of something quite massive. If it grows legs then the Sheriffs Departments simply will not be able to enforce ownership claims where the owner is a non-resident entity like a corporation that cannot literally stand guard over its own asset.

If eviction and subsequent enforcement blows out to 6 months or a year (easily possible in a land-rush scenario) then lower class welfare types are going to seriously start weighing this up as being viable purely on economic grounds.

Many do, more and more I think. This is where the "American Descendants of Slavery" type groups come from.

For example, I didn't know until recently that over the course of like 15 years Compton - second only to Harlem as far as "canonical, notable black American neighborhood" in the public consciousness - has experienced a complete demographic replacement. First mostly Mexicans, and recently even they've been getting pushed out for Hondurans and Salvadorians. So you've got yuppie Buzzfeed bloggers pushing you out on one end and migrants (with the help of the government) on the other.
