San Jose apparently doesn’t think Oakland Police Chief Anthony Batts is good enough to be its police chief. But Batts seems to still think he’s too good for Oakland. And a lot of Oaklanders apparently think the same thing, considering all the groveling they’ve been doing over the past two weeks trying to convince Batts to stay. Turns out all the begging was unnecessary. Batts wasn’t going to San Jose anyway. But the groveling now has a substantial downside. It’s emboldened Batts to publicly trash his bosses and the city he serves.
