I'm sure that this will be a well reasoned and not at all racist thread. I look forward to a good clean, but spirited, debate.

I'm just as sure that people who know nothing about Oakland will disparage the entire city based on this incident and others they occasionally see on the news.

One would think with access to Earthview that the need for live on the scene stories could become a thing of the past; especially for non-event stories. You know, reduce carbon footprint and all that hocus-pocus Al Gore stuff. The comments at the end of the article were predictable as well.

Why would you steal this? Its going to be hard as hell to sell. If anyone does buy it itll be for about 1/1000 of what its worth.

Also, Rap videos. They will use it to make rap videos.

You'd think if this has been an ongoing problem they'd provide some kind of security for news crews going into bad areas (of any city). Guarantee that would be cheaper than buying new equipment every time or the inevitable lawsuit when a reporter is actually killed on the job.

Sooo, pointing out that a poor area with very high crime rates that is predominantly African-American means your a racist? Should we continue to stick our head in the sand and pretend that area's like Detroit, DC and Oakland aren't hotbeds of crime and the product of failed policies with regard to urban area's?

If only there was some agency who was trained and experienced in investigating serious problems such as this and publishing the results for the community at large to view. Too bad we dont have those kind of agency's any more. Now all the do is human interest stories.

If someone does buy it, it will be for infinitely greater money than what the robbers paid for it.

There is nothing wrong with that, but I expected a lot more comments like the following from the Anders Brevik thread.

Well now such a low violent crime rate's much easier to achieve when you have a fairly low population density which also lacks a large community of people of African descent with the propensity to commit these violent crimes, yes?

As others have pointed out, the pro video gear would be very hard to sell.

One other thing I'm sure the thugs didn't consider is that pro video gear would be very difficult if not nearly impossible for someone to successfully use if they aren't a pro videographer.

FTFA: "The attack was the latest among a series of incidents involving members of the press in Oakland. In recent months, journalists with the Oakland Tribune, KTVU and KNTV have been accosted and robbed of laptops, cameras and tripods."

Maybe if people in Oakland would stop stealing journalists' stuff, we'd see more of it on the news?

As a TV news photographer, I'm really getting a reply out of this kick.

Seriously, having worked in D.C. / Bodymore, this seems like a crime against the media in general, or dumb gang-related robbery. People that want this gear in pristine (ha!) condition are more likely to shadow a camera crew and steal it out of the unattended vehicle. A confrontation increases the risk of a damaged rig. Plus: all the other goodies in the car. I have a $2000 wireless mic set, and it's mid-range. There's only so much rap video you can shoot before the $500 battery needs the $1500 charger.
