Oakland police chief announces crimes dept will not respond to.

Oh my friends, this is rich. In a press release the jackhole, Police Chief Anthony Batts, has announced which crimes they do not plan to respond to IF the planned cuts in staffing (laying off 80 officers) is made. From Jonathan Turley’s blog:

Oakland’s police chief Anthony Batts has announced that Oakland Police will not responded to 44 different crimes if planned layoffs occur at midnight. It was useful for Batts to announce the categories in advance for criminals to chose from a criminal dim sum list of free crimes including grand theft, burglary, vehicle collision, identity theft and vandalism.

If you are the victim of burglary, you will be told to make a report online and not to expect police to respond.

Here the list of free crimes in Oakland:

    grand theft
    grand theft:dog
    identity theft
    false information to peace officer
    required to register as sex or arson offender
    dump waste or offensive matter
    discard appliance with lock
    loud music
    possess forged notes
    pass fictitious check
    obtain money by false voucher
    fraudulent use of access cards
    stolen license plate
    embezzlement by an employee (over $ 400)
    attempted extortion
    false personification of other
    injure telephone/ power line
    interfere with power line
    unauthorized cable tv connection
    administer/expose poison to another’s

That allows ample room for most criminals to plan a life of crime without the risk of police interference.

Jesus H Christ, is the police chief playing with a full deck? Come on….of course he is upset, naturally he wants the public to realize the impact of such a large staffing cut. But releasing a friggin list? Give me an effin break…the guy has the IQ and compassion of a dandelion. Bet gun sales soar in Oakland…
