  •  I won't go so far as "shameful" yet but... (6+ / 0-)

    ...his behavior so far is unfortunate and the irrational police action in Oakland  does reflect upon him, that's inescapable. He can't hide from that.

    •  it is shameful; he is the governor of the state (7+ / 0-)

      in his state, in a city primarily populated by working class people and people of colour, a violent police attack against a peaceful demonstration occurred ... he has said nothing; it is shameful ... yes, he has probably been advised not to criticise the police, he is probably afraid of either criticising the police or the demonstrators, but quite honestly there comes a time when you cannot be silent, he has remained silent, shame on him!
