Ron Dellums Gets Slapped

In a telling sign of how far Ron Dellums has fallen, the families of at least two of four the cops tragically killed nine days ago refused to let Oakland's mayor address the huge crowd at the officers' funeral services at Oracle Arena. By contrast, the families were more than happy to let Dellums' predecessor, Jerry Brown, speak, according to the Trib. Same with Senators Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. And, of course, Acting Police Chief Howard Jordan addressed the crowd. But not Dellums. He got the thumbs down. It says a lot when families tell the man who ultimately was the police officers' boss that they he should keep quiet. Wow.
