Oakland Police Department reports 44% drop in arrests

According to a recent article in the San Francisco Chronicle, Oakland Police officers made 44 percent less arrests last year than in the past three years. The drop is seen as a direct result of job cuts at the Oakland Police Department, which then led to a decline in the proactive police work that usually leads to more arrests.

“The death penalty is a lie, a misguided mistake born of anger and frustration. Capital punishment has become a perverse monument to inequality, to how some lives matter and others do not. It is a violent example of how we protect and value the rich and abandon and devalue the poor. The death penalty is a grim, disturbing shadow formed by the legacy of racial apartheid and bias against the poor that condemns the disfavored among us, but corrupts us all. It’s the perverse symbol elected officials use to strengthen their ‘tough on crime’ reputations and distract us from confronting the causes of violence. It is finally the enemy of grace, redemption and all of us who recognize that each person is more than their worse act.”
