NOBLE Improves Their People Skills for 2nd Community Forum on BART Police, Oakland, 6/23/09: audio
by dave id
After their disappointing first community forum for BART police review in San Francisco the day before, NOBLE showed a slightly more deft tact in dealing with the public at their second, larger forum in Oakland on June 23rd. NOBLE seemed to have learned a little from prior mistakes, especially in that they did not hand out a condescending rule sheet to attendees, did not try to artificially shape comments to exclude discussion of the murder of Oscar Grant, and, at the end of the evening, they profusely thanked participants for volunteering their time. While NOBLE says there are still another three months to go in their "top to bottom" review of the BART police department, they are already over a full month into it and it is obvious that there are serious shortcomings in their knowledge of BART police history and the case of Oscar Grant, as pointed out by multiple speakers. How much integrity and courage they will show in confronting BART's corrupt police force and those responsible for supervising it remains to be seen.
