The Oakland police acted brutally, Oct. 25th in Oakland,California against peaceful protesters.  As it turns out Mayor Quan knew this action was ‘going‘ to happen, but did not know ‘when’ Oakland police would act. He, the police chief acted when she, Mayor Quan was in D.C.  Isn’t Mayor Quan the police chiefs boss? Was she unable to fire the Oakland police chief, because she knew the plan and was part of the discussion?

The Oakland police union released a statement musing her support of the OCCUPIERS and their, the police officers duty, in light of her support of the OCCUPIERS and the general strike being called for Wednesday, Nov.2nd, 2011 in Oakland. This letter by the police union seems disrespectful at the very least, but does call into the light Mayor Quan’s quasi, shifting, support of OCCUPY Oakland

Does Mayor Quan support the right to free speech and the people or will she fall into line? Keep an eye on Oakland, Mayor Quan is Oakland’s ‘new mayor’. She walked the streets and got support from the Oakland community.  She was not the favored candidate, the people voted her into office.
