  •  Oakland needs to hire cops who live in Oakland (12+ / 0-)

    The reason the department is so fucked up and racist is because few of the people on the force know the town.
    They drive in from the suburbs each day.

    Police from Oakland would know the neighborhoods better and know the shady characters they are dealing with better.

    Secondly, they never, ever, get out of their cars.
    It sure would be nice to see an Oakland cop walking a beat just once. They are always in their cars, playing with the laptop.

    To prevent crime, you have to think you might actually run into a cop on the street. Now, that never happens.

    P.S. We were robbed last year, as were most of my neighbors. The cops came to investigate the next day. 12 hours later.

    Jordan sucked, he won't be missed.
