4. A better number for calling Quan
510-444-CITY.
This goes directly to her office.

I have gotten a live person every time I call.

The other number is a message box which is always full.

2. Cops Are Starting to Crumble
An ad like this puts tremendous pressure on police, and they're starting to buckle. In New York, for instance, the head of the Sergeant's Union issued a threat to sue any protester who injuries a police officer. Why did he make such a statement at this time? It's because the cops are seeing the no-win position they've been placed into. The police should get out of civil matters. The Occupy groups are entirely political in their aims, and except for the acts of a few random outsiders, entirely law-abiding. There's really no place for the police in the middle of this. They can't win; they can only lose.

Time's up, guys. Work with your unions for a way to limit your work lives to those areas that are legitimate police concerns. Street protests are traffic problems, not criminal matters. Get out now.



Cops crumbling under OWS pressure.

6. Oh... there IS a place for the police in this.
And that place is WITH the 99% (if they ALL join the movement, nobody can fire ALL of them).

What are they waiting for? The 1% to rob them ALL of their pension funds??? :mad:

Because, there's no way around it. The 1% DO HAVE their predatory eyes settled on their pension funds.

3. Interestingly, her office leaves messages in 4 languages...
Which I find to be inclusive.

I acknowledged this when leaving my message now, and respectfully asked that she stop the police brutality or step down.

Thanks for the number and KICK this ALL NIGHT!

Be patient when you call, as they listen in all languages, and it takes a while to get to the "beep".
