Well that would explain everything:
People who've e-mailed Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan over the past year about Occupy Oakland probably didn't get much of a response.
That's because he used a spam filter to dismiss messages sent to him with "Occupy Oakland" in the subject line, according to a federal court filing Monday. Same goes for the phrases "stop the excessive police force," "respect the press pass" or "police brutality." Instead of landing in his in-box, those messages went straight into his junk mail folder, which he apparently never looked at.
Because of those filters, Jordan missed e-mails from other city officials and a federal court monitor, who oversees the department's compliance with court-ordered reforms stemming from a police abuse scandal.

So, it wasn't his intention to ignore the official court monitor, who oversees claims of brutality against one of America's most brutal police forces. It was just his intention to ignore everybody else. Because, you know, those sissies scream "police brutality" every time we crack some heads, or give them a taste of pepper spray.
