I was puzzled the other night when I read that other area
police were called in to help the Oakland police when they did the tear gas/beanbag/etc. assault against the protestors. Couldn't figure out why they needed help from other towns..then I read this:

"The Oakland police were prohibited from using those parts of their arsenal because they had misused them before so an order was given to stop them from misusing them again."

By calling in other forces who were allowed to use those weapons, that made the weapons usable and took the Oakland police off the hook for using them.

1. I don't think they are quite off the hook yet...
I don't know of anyone who thinks that either.

2. +1 And also allowed them to deny using them.
Careful wording.

12. Thank you. Not only means we don't all have to do it, but
I've found incriminating stuff has a way of disappearing off the 'net; a URL helps show at least where it used to be, and who probably deleted it.

9. So the invited police officers from other areas have to be sanctioned for this?
And their various departments subjected to same extent as Oakland PD? I do hope so and will be glad if that is the case.

10. Wouldn't other officers still be under the command of the Oakland Chief?
I would still think they should be held accountable.
