With leadership like this serving as an example to police officers under their command, it’s little wonder that our police misconduct statistics aren’t much higher than they are.
But, this leads us to question those statistics since the law enforcement leaders are ultimately responsible for ensuring that misconduct allegations are properly recorded, investigated, reported, and acted upon… and if those leaders are covering for their own misbehavior, how reliable is the information they release about the misconduct of those under their command?
Ultimately, we also have to question that, if local governments are this lax in selecting those who lead their police agencies, then how much more lax is the selection process for regular police officers?
…and, perhaps equally as pertinent, how is it that elected law enforcement leaders like this keep getting re-elected by the public?
Just something to keep in mind as you may, or may not, be heading into the polls for mid-term local elections this year.

To Dave in LA, I live in Oakland downtown actually and nothing has happened to me at night walking around even in the east part, in fact I got stranded and a young gentlemen helped me out let me use his phone to call for assistance, I'm still fine! But it's still not the safest at night but usually that's if your "fonkin" with someone(only ppl in oakland know what that means) but cops really don't do shit!!! My boyfriend one time was beating the crap out of me right behind a highway patrol car while I was driving I started speeding doing hella shit to get him to pull me over did he do it? No, did he even see me? No he just kept on going I was so scared....so I'm sorry but you really don't know what your talking about I'm sure there are tons of good cops out there, but most of them especially here in Oakland are just scared little farm boys in a big city with scary black guys.

You are such an unnecessary FOOL!!
This entire situation is unfortunate. Even if the BART Cop made an error in judgement by pulling out the wrong device, since when is it proper to Taser a person in the heart, in the head or at vital body points that could render the tased person dead?? I agree, we should honor the requests of authority and live to fight them tomorrow, if they are wrong!! Always follow the policeman's request; you really have no choice.

Mr. Grant was neither a criminal nor an illegal. Yet he was still shot in the back, execution style, by this racist cop. Facts are facts, jack. Watch the video, its chilling.
