Oakland: Feds Are Coming

Oakland Police Chief Anthony Batts will ask for federal help in patrolling Oakland.

The FBI, DEA, ATF and ICE will meet with "community leaders" and police in August. I wonder if those "community leaders" will be the same "leaders" who recently collaborated with the police to get their piece of the pie?

There was little doubt that the Feds had their eyes and hands on Oakland over the past year. Now Oakland may be an out-and-out Federal police state. We should make it clear that the Feds are unwanted and unwelcome... although I doubt our voices will do any more than make OPD more desperately desire federal support.

Outside agitators? ha!
