Add comment on:Berkeley PD Chief & Local Reporter Invent "Crime Wave", Blame Occupy Oakland
Occupy the Media
Berkeley Police Chief Michael Meehan has been consulting with local Conservative writer Ted Friedman, to create a sense of a "crime wave". In a blogpost, Friedman admits to approaching Meehan to pitch a story about a crime wave from Oakland that threatens Berkeley. Friedman and Meehan claim Occupy created a rise in Oakland crime which is filtering into Berkeley. Meehan is also using the reporter to assert that a Fuck the Police march which originated from Oakland is responsible for the death of Mr. Peter Cukor one year ago. Still in a lawsuit from the Cukor family, Meehan wants a revised history to use in court.
