Let me tell you that in June, a person shot and injured a federal officer outside the court in Oakland, and his partner died in the attack. Investigations revealed that both federal officials guarded a building in protest against racial violence.
At the same time, the attack was imposed on a former Air Force employee. The accused who attacked him was also accused of having links with people who were carrying out anti-government agitation. Who helped him in his escape.
