BART Police Review Committee on Hiring New Police Chief and New Year's Eve Plans, 11/4/09: audio and PDFs
by dave id
Just over a month after NOBLE released the draft report
that excoriated BART's entire police department, the BART Police Department Review Committee -- created in the aftermath
of the murder of Oscar Grant by BART police officer Johannes Mehserle -- held it's second meeting since the draft was released. On the agenda was the process and criteria for hiring a new police chief to replace the infamously ineffectual and corrupt Gary Gee; BART police visibility on trains; and BART's plans for this coming New Year's Eve. A date for the next meeting was not announced. Of course, there was no word on BART ever holding anyone accountable for the murder of Oscar Grant and the abuse his friends, nor for the cover-up by supervisors afterwards.
