Disappointing NOBLE Community Forum for BART Police Review, San Francisco, 6/22/09: audio
dave id
Three months after the murder of Oscar Grant, the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives (NOBLE) was hired by BART to do a "top to bottom" review of the BART police department. As a part of their ongoing review, NOBLE held what was purported to be a community forum on June 22nd at the Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts in San Francisco. NOBLE's report to BART is due in about three months. Judging by their first community forum, NOBLE appears to be almost as afraid of the public as the BART police -- and more interested in garnering positive corporate media for themselves than holding a true community forum. NOBLE likes to refer to themselves as the "conscience of law enforcement," but anyone who expected them to act as such in this limited interaction with the public was sure to be disappointed.
