Oakland deputies carried out a pre-dawn militarized raid Tuesday morning to evict @moms4housing , arresting two mothers — including Misty Cross. The mothers were treated like "a real terrorist threat," says Cross. "It was like a movie scene. I had never seen anything like that."
After @moms4housing members were evicted from a vacant Oakland home, the property owner agreed to sell it at a fair price through a land trust. "We’re still skeptical,” says Misty Cross. "Why are they now trying to settle things after all of this trauma has been caused to us?"
@moms4housing UPDATE: This morning, deputies evicted the families and arrested the @moms4housing co-founders, Misty Cross and Tolani King. Dominique Walker & @fifeca 's @democracynow interview was cut short when they learned militarized deputies had arrived at the house.
Watch for fire crews on the scene of a fire at Cross Creek at Misty Creek in Goshen Twsp.
