Derwin Longmire Is Looking for a Payday

Disgraced Oakland police Sergeant Derwin Longmire, who botched the Chauncey Bailey murder investigation, is now suing the City of Oakland, apparently in hopes of scoring a nice payday. Longmire makes the incredible claim that police commanders who stood by him for too long had in fact tarnished his reputation. But as outrageous as Longmire’s allegations appear to be, he also likely knows that the city has a history of settling police cases for fear of losing a big judgment at trial.
