Embattled Oakland Deputy Chief Steps Down

Oakland Deputy Police Chief Dave Kozicki, who commanded an ill-advised raid earlier this year that resulted in two dead cops, has decided to retire early, the Trib reports. Kozicki tells the paper that he was not forced to step down, but his decision comes just weeks before an outside report is expected to heavily criticize him for his role in the March 21 police officer deaths.
