Bratton contact approved in Oakland: Fascism Alive in Oakland & SF Bay Area
repost
The Oakland City Council, all Democrats, approved the police consulting $250,000 contract of an open fascist, William Bratton, around 2 a.m., when most people had gone home, on January 23, 2013, right after Martin Luther King weekend in a 7 to 1 vote with Desley Brooks dissenting. Only the elimination of poverty stops crime; that $250,000 would go a long way to alleviating poverty.
