    Management problem.

    Usually the police department managers do their best to avoid injuring nonviolent protesters. Blue Line guys, not so much. They attack roughly 100 times too many people.

    Getting a recreation of this incident could have long term effects. Not speaking only about Oakland, but police management everywhere in the country.

    I do know how to run the briefing. A 90 minute wringer can bring this $4.5-million settlement to an appropriate level of attention. We don't have enough through Occupy to set up a simulation. That's critical.

    Anybody here in contact with Scott Olsen ?

    Or know who set up the civil attorney's technical case?
