Oakland Cops Say They Didn’t “Train” Their Guns on Child

Oakland Police Chief Howard Jordan is contending that his officers did not intentionally point their guns at a sleeping child while searching a home in West Oakland last year, the Chron reports. Jordan’s statement came in response to the latest report from independent Court Monitor Robert Warshaw who stated that “[D]uring a search warrant, two officers pointed their firearms at a sleeping 19-month-old child who, of course, posed no immediate threat to the officers or others. The crime being investigated, according to the reports, involved a misdemeanor offense.”
