The Silver Lining at OPD

We won’t have to read about or listen to Oakland Police Chief Wayne Tucker’s warped view of reality anymore. Tucker’s last day was on Saturday, but before he cleaned out his desk, he told the Trib’s Kelly Rayburn — apparently with a straight face — that the department was the “healthiest” it’s been in years. Huh? If this is healthy, I’d hate to see “sick.” It’s hard to remember a time when the department was in worse shape. Tucker’s tenure has been marked by a historic jump in violent crime and a department rocked by scandal after scandal. He has to go down as one of the worst police chiefs the city has ever had.
