Just a quick updates on known developments today...
The Alameda County Board of Supervisors appointed Deputy Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O'Malley to replace retiring DA Tom Orloff today. No real thought about it. No deep discussion on what Alameda wants/needs in a DA. Just appoint Orloff's recommendation, and if history is any measure Nancy O'Malley will run unopposed in next year's election for DA.

And this should make a lot of people happy -- way to go BART! Apparently four of the officers on the Fruitvale platform when Oscar Grant and his friends were harassed and abused, and Oscar murdered, were reinstated from their paid leave and have been back on the force all month. BART police officers Noel Flores, Jonathan Guerra, Emery Knudtson, and Jon Woffinden are back on duty while Tony Pirone and Marysol Domenici remain on paid vacation.

Please check SFGATE.COM for the stories on O'Malley's appointment, then look at comments section for some of her unethical actions. She engineered the hiring of Nadia Lockyer was head of ACFJC, and premier domestic violence agency. Of course, as known by everyone, Lockyer did not really want the job, it's not big enough for her self image, she is only using it as a stepping stone to higher things, like Board of Supervisors campaign now.

These are not public servants, these are political schemers, riding the domestic violence wagon, or whatever becomes the next apple pie motherhood issue.
