OPD has said words that imply that they have learned -- or are learning -- from recent embarrassments. However, what they have done -- and are likely intending to do -- is to give teams of Officers known to be the most violent the delicate responsibility of controlling Oakland activists. So the question is by which should they be measured -- the forward looking empty promises? the unfair, unbalanced, media-abetted damage-control? or the tally of the beaten, mistreated, framed, and unjustly deprived of their freedom?
