Oakland Police face Federal Takeover.

Federal Judge Thelton Henderson seems to be losing patience with the Oakland PD with their efforts to clean up their force stemming from a 9-year old suit.

“This department finds itself woefully behind its peers around the state and nation,” he wrote.

His impatience with the Mayor, Jean Quan, and Police Chief Howard Jordan was evident in his tightening of restraints:

Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan must now consult with the monitor before making important department decisions such as promoting and disciplining officers and changing policing policy and tactics.

In light of the brutal harassment of Occupy Oakland last night, the mayor's and the
Chief's assurances of compliance seem to be going out the window. Personally, I would love to see the judge crack down and order federal control ASAP.
