Brunner, Nacho Want New Chief from Out of Town



The Trib sez that Oakland City Councilmembers Ignacio De la Fuente and Jane Brunner have introduced a resolution calling for the next Police Chief to hail from out of town. Because apparently there are some scandals at the Police Department about something or other. Cop union head Dom Arotzarena called the resolution a "slap in the face" to everyone in the Department; Arotzarena has just replaced Bob Valladon, who was recently accused of taking a last-minute promotion in return for sabotaging a no-confidence vote in former police chief Wayne Tucker.
