  • Robert Warshaw Needs to Clean House at OPD

    The Oakland Police Department won't be able to emerge from federal oversight until its new overseer gets rid of the police commanders who refuse to hold rogue cops accountable.

  • Oakland Cops Think City Is Too Liberal

    A newly released survey also reveals a divide within the department between an old guard resistant to change and new officers who want OPD to become a modern, progressive police force.

Re: “Oakland Officials Question Police Partnerships with Federal Immigration Agents and FBI

I agree with Pamela Drake. We need more clarity here.

Re: “High-Level City Staff Knew of Police Sex Crimes Months Before Oakland Mayor Says She Was Informed

Thanks to Belinda for providing the documentation which provided the foundation for this article. These revelations are very troubling and underscores the lack of accountability on the part of the City's administration. We deserve better and so do all victims of the misconduct and incompetence that have brought harm to many Oakland residents.

Re: “Oakland Privacy Commission Approves Surveillance Transparency and Oversight Law

Congratulations to the Privacy Commission for this excellent initiative. I hope that the soon-to-be implemented Police Commission will take a page from your playbook and discharge their duties as effectively! Bravo.

Re: “New Lawsuit Alleges Oakland Police Conspiracy to Cover Up Home Invasion by Drunk Cops

Does anyone seriously think that we don't need a civilian oversight police commission? Even under a Federal judge, these shenanigans continue unabated. Beyond unacceptable. Yes on Measure LL! www.yesonll.com

Re: “Vote With Us! The East Bay Express' Endorsements for Election Day 2016

As a member of the Coalition for Police Accountability and the Measure LL campaign, I want to express our gratitude and appreciation for your endorsement. It represents a very thorough understanding of the context and history of the Measure as well as a recognition of the role Measure LL can play in helping to rectify the problems associated with our police department and influence future policy decisions and standards of conduct.

Re: “Low-Level Cops Facing Punishment in East Bay Sex Crimes Scandal

Very disturbing is an understatement. The Negotiated Settlement Agreement was supposed to address exactly these long standing deficiencies and, to date, the Federal monitoring costs have exceeded $30 million. The failure of the City to ensure compliance is the reason we are calling upon the voters to pass Measure LL to establish an independent commission of Oakland residents. Something different must be done to provide Oakland residents with the ability to hold the Department accountable when they engage in such abysmal and unethical (if not illegal) behavior. We deserve better.
