Here is the quote from the chief that jumped out at me in that regard.
So the residents of his town cannot be allowed to act because those actions might not be appropriate. Of course, across the country, the citizens of other towns do act so it must just be his citizens that are too stupid to be allowed that possibility.We’re not talking about someone’s life being immediately taken, we’re talking about someone firing a weapon into the community when at that point it didn’t seem appropriate to do so.”
I don't want to blame the Oakland officers for the current situation in their city. But the policies of the department seem to be a factor in that. https://www.oaklandca.gov/news/2020/opd ... n-the-rise
