Re: “Oakland Police Hold Secret Ceremony Honoring Several Officers Accused of Mishandling Celeste Guap Sex-Crimes Investigation

Why would you use the word, "Mishandling", in your headline, about a story, regarding a case of child rape and a police department wide conspiracy to conceal this rape? The police didn't "mishandle" this young girl, as you say here, nor did they mishandle this case. They committed purjury, conspired, and initiated a young under age woman, into selling herself, and also leaked police information about ongoing criminal cases, in exchange for sexual relations. They abused their authority, and this young woman.

Re: “Oakland Police Chief Doubles-Down on Promoting the Cops Who Covered-Up the Celeste Guap Case

And you wonder why protests rise to the levels they do in this city.
Why on earth should anyone respect any rule of law here?
Lead by example.

Re: “How the Oakland Police Department Worked to Cover-Up Sex Crimes and a Home Invasion Committed by Cops

After reading more....Monitor's and Swanson reports and latest EBX coverage, agree with Len.....The OPD culture will never change when OPD supervisory officers become politically untouchable and receive successive promotions.....Very disappointed in new Chief's promotion of Holmgren (bad decisions/actions in Occupy, Cortez and at multiple stages of the O'Brien and Jasmine victimization / sex scandal cases....Chief Kirkpatrick's excuse--Monitor OK'd the promotions, doesn't fly because that approval occurred while Swanson investigation still in progress.....Instead of being revisited, the Lois and Holmgren promotions are being finalized today......

Re: “Oakland Police Commanders Who Buried Sex-Crime Scandal Investigation Were Later Promoted

with body cams and failed internal investigations, it is abundantly clear the police must be policed.

Add the judge to the list of corrupt officials. He could have imposed much harder penalties, since he's retiring next month and won't have to live with the consequences. Instead, he scolds the city and, basically, lets it continue its disgraceful conduct.

More business as usual, as the carcass of Oakland is picked by the vultures from every side. Burris and Henderson feast on her, OPD feasts on her, EBE feasts on her, The city bureaucrats and elected "leaders" feast on her, and the poor battered carcass is picked to the bones.

Re: “Rising Rents Threaten to Displace Oakland Nonprofits

Like all resources, office space and housing, are subject to the concept of scarcity. Oakland office space, formerly inexpensive relative to San Francisco, is now in demand. Non profits who have anticipated this sea change either by purchasing their own property OR raising their revenue opportunities will survive regardless of their missions and clients.

As an Oakland homeowner I'd prefer my city to invest their funds in street repairs, fire suppression, police, and recreation services for youth and adults. I believe these non profits all have virtue, but the blunt reality is that market forces have made their office spaces more costly, not any conspiracy- real or imagined.

"earn the community's trust in its police department" - This from someone who has spent 23 years spurring animosity to Oakland police, while not caring a whit for the victims of robberies, assaults, and burglaries. http://www.sfgate.com/bayarea/article/Chil…

Punish the beat cops but promote the supervising brass. Business as usual at OPD.

Re: “Oakland Police Chief Doubles-Down on Promoting the Cops Who Covered-Up the Celeste Guap Case

The citizens of Oakland deserve better. Promoting higher ups involved in coverups tells me that the police department, even with a new chief, has not changed and has no intention of changing. The coup de grace is Coleman investigating police misconduct. OPD, Mayor Schafer and City Administrator Landreth don't seem to mind maintaining the status quo. What a shame!

If this is not the end of Schaaf and Kirkpatrick, then Oakland deserves exactly what it will continue to get; a deepening cesspool of lies & corruption.

Re: “Rising Rents Threaten to Displace Oakland Nonprofits

"Lot's of hate disguised as help comes out of these orgs." You think you can elaborate on this? Show some proof? No. Just another hater of non-profit organizations that are for people in need.
If I worked for one I would have said so.

OMG...what a pit of vipers. Schaaf needs to be removed from office as does the Chief of OPD.

Re: “Oakland Police Chief Doubles-Down on Promoting the Cops Who Covered-Up the Celeste Guap Case

Troubling, to say the least. I hope the Police Commission will do their due diligence once they're up and running. We'll need all hands on deck to bring about the long overdue reforms that are needed to earn the community's trust in its police department.

Re: “Oakland Could Lose Control of Its Police Force After Next Week's Court Hearing

OPD has been out the control of city hall for a very long time.

OPD's ongoing problems have been major expressions of a near-totally incompetent and corrupt civic government.

No matter how tough the Federal Court may get with OPD, the Department's problems of ineffectiveness, ethical challenges, low morale, high rate of turnover, inefficiency, high financial cost and deeply-impaired relations with our diverse communities will not improve until there is a whole new crew of electeds in city hall.

Oakland needs real leaders in city hall. That means honest people with brains, with management skills, with a vision for Oakland and with a high level of ethical achievement.
