Federal Receivership: Good or Bad for Occupy Oakland?

There has been a lot of talk about federal receivership for the Oakland Police Department in the past few weeks, and considering much of the readily available content online via YouTube, various blogs, and live streams, many would say that is a well deserved fate for many recorded incidents.

Thinking about all the defensive statements from Oakland Mayor Jean Quan and Police Chief Howard Jordan, one would be inclined to think that the Occupy Oakland protesters are really crazy and/or violent and should be jailed, or forcibly put in mental institutions for their behavior. It’s unfortunate that these same individuals have the power to send out highly publicized press releases that broadcast their damaging statements against people demanding social change and governmental responsibility at the very least.

  1. Federal Receivership is a very slippery slope- it could do well- but what i think is they will use it as a field test for new laws recently enacted- they could choose to keep some or all of the existing officers in place- and/or bring in federal DHS personnel- which i think they will do- it will be a time to be very cautious and careful until their goals are seen- KPK Kahuna
