By Josh Richman
Wednesday, March 25th, 2009 at 1:39 pm in California State Senate, Ellen Corbett, Lois Wolk, Loni Hancock, Mark DeSaulnier, Oakland.

These floor speeches were made Monday, but the videos just became available today.

From state Sen. Mike DeSaulnier, D-Concord (reading from our article in Monday’s editions):

More after the jump…

From state Sen. Ellen Corbett, D-San Leandro:

From state Sen. Lois Wolk, D-Davis:

I see state Sen. Loni Hancock, D-Berkeley, ushering people to the microphone in these clips and I assume she spoke as well, but oddly enough, the California Senate Majority Caucus YouTube page doesn’t offer a video of her words.

    I am an African American Male who is outraged at my community for attending a vigil for a slain cop killer murder and rapist. There is no justification in my mind that such a vigil was or is warranted. I feel for the family of the slain police officers. I can only offer my condolences and outrage at the shooter and Uhurh movement for trying to make this man a martyer. If there is anything I can do I will gladly do to help ease the pain and sorrow of the police officers family and support the Oakland Police dept in its fight against crime in the Oakland area.
