Add comment on:Finding excuses for jackboots: ex-police chief McNamara "plays the race card"
Joseph McNamara (former police chief of Kansas City MO and San Jose CA, currently a research fellow at Stanford's Hoover Institution) has often positioned himself on the "good cop" end of the spectrum of police spokespersons. His article "Finding solutions for Oakland" attempts to fall into that vein. But the article uses race-baiting that serves and protects the system of unchecked rampant abuse by Oakland police.
