Trib: Fire Oakland Schools Police Chief

Oakland schools Police Chief Art Michel should be fired for abusing Oakland Tribune photojournalist Jane Tyska. That’s the conclusion of an unusually blunt Tribune editorial today — and we couldn’t agree more. Michel exhitibed the epitome of unprofessionalism when he cussed and berated Tyska, falsely accused her of vandalism, and then confiscated her work during an Oakland demonstration last month. Tyska was on the job when Michel went after her, and his actions were clearly over the top.
