Re: “Why Oakland Can't Fire Bad Cops

Ms. Parker,

As you know full well, the City of Oakland retained attorney Nikki Hall to re-investigate the Olsen case in 2012 because OPD’s Internal Affairs did not handle the case properly. Your office then chose not to retain Hall for the arbitration case, even though she has worked for them in the past on personnel matters. OPD terminated Robert Roche on August 6, 2013. Roberts was retained in February 2014, and told people he interviewed before Roche's arbitration hearing that he did not have sufficient time to prepare the city's case, according to sources I spoke with.

As the for Franks case, we corrected the story to note that it was still in the disciplinary process stage and had not yet gone into arbitration when the exculpatory information was withheld from Franks’ lawyers.

In terms of your other points, we stand by the accuracy of the story and do not plan to make any other corrections.
