Re: “Has Oakland Killed Community Policing?

I lived in the flats in the ghosttown area for about a decade, before recently finding a rental in the hills near Shepherd Canyon. It's shameful that we're criticizing putting twice the number of PSOs in West Oakland, instead of equally distributing them geographically. First hand I can tell you, there's no comparison between crime levels in the hills and the flats. If we were distributing them based on demand, I'd venture that a 10:1 ratio would be more appropriate than a 2:1, especially when we're talking about violent crime, and ongoing criminal issues. Fortunate people in the hills should rest peacefully knowing they don't *need* the kind of PSO force that West Oakland does.
