Re: “Black Oakland Leaders Criticize Mayor and Police Chief for 'Lack of Control' Over Police Department

This is typical of the terribly biased reporting of Darwin Bond-Graham, Ali Winston, and the East Bay Express in general. "The Oakland police also didn't immediately respond to a request for more information about the incident" is the extent of their investigation into the OPD's version of what happened, especially regarding the Foothill incident, yet the case for the viewpoint expressed in the letter is bolstered by references to the Stanford study, previous poor behavior on the part of OPD, and quotes from multiple sources who support the aims of the letter.

When it comes to presenting a viewpoint which Bond-Graham and the EBX do not agree with, the extent of their effort is asking the OPD PIO for an "immediate" comment and then throwing up their hands and giving up.

Strange how the EBX has so many sources inside the department when it comes to reporting on scandalous material, but they can't be bothered to do more than a perfunctory press inquiry when it comes to looking for a side of the story that may contradict the radical agenda for which the EBX is the unabashed mouthpiece.
