Berkeley police chief Meehan lied at a recent community meeting, claiming that an FTP march was headed to take over the UC Berkeley police station. This tall-tale was his excuse for not having police respond to a call for aid, resulting in the death of a Berkeley citizen.
After the community conference, the police chief was unhappy with a late-night news story regarding the meeting. A sergeant was sent to the reporter's home, with a list of changes for the reporter to implement.
There are now calls for the resignation of police chief Meehan for playing politics with public safety and for intimidating the press.
