Disgusted with Oakland

Best damned article I've read yet describing the causes of Oakland's out of control crime wave. At this point in time, the blame falls squarely on the shoulders of Mayor Jean Quan. In another life, Quan must have been the Captain of the Titanic, who's actions led to the destruction of property and the death of hundreds as well. It's time for Chief Jordan to stop being Quan's useless puppet, grow a set, and start speaking out against his incompetent boss: Quan. A successful mayoral recall would have started Oakland on the path to recovery. Don Perata must be quite amused by all this.

Can anybody explain Quan's confused deer in the headlights look she is always giving the press? And where is the FBI? Quan said the FBI were going to step in and help Oakland's crime problem. Or was that just another Quan lie? What about Quan's crime plan? Whatever happened to that?
