  •  Until about a month ago I lived (4+ / 0-)

    in Oakland, one of the bad parts, and I've seen the cops pull all kinds of bullshit.  I give you my personal guarantee that OPD has a serious, serious problem and blaming the victims is not going to change that.

    There revolution will not be televised. But it will be blogged, a lot. Probably more so than is necessary.

      If you wrote this diary - I might find it remotely credible instead of totally inflammatory.  I have followed your work - at least you are credible and in the community so I have respect for what you say.

      But you didn't and it's written by someone who wasn't there, doesn't live there, and constantly uses rhetoric that is completely one-sided.

      I understand the issues with OPD - I do work in this area and don't condone abusive or corrupt behavior.  I believe in due process and I believe most cops are good and go to work for the right reasons.
