    Actually, I had seen two things about this. Here's one:

    ...if internal affairs recommends an officer be disciplined, or even fired, that recommendation often is overturned later by an arbitrator.

    This arbitration system is guaranteed by the union contract between the city and the Oakland Police Officers’ Association, and it often helps cops avoid department recommended discipline or termination. However, Judge Henderson recently indicated that he might add a new way to punish officers who commit wrongdoing. And if he chooses to implement this new disciplinary process, it will be the first of its kind in the country.

    And the other I just don't have the energy to dig uup now. But if anyone wants to persue this element, just search - oakland internal affairs union (adding Henderson if you like) - There seems to be a fair amount on it.

    I hope Judge Henderson follows through on it!

    "...just ordinary people, you know, people who are not famous, if they get together, if they persist, if they defy the authorities, they can defeat the largest corporation in the world. - Howard Zinn
