Tuesday Must Read: Oakland Schools Top Cop Suspended for Alleged N-Word Tirade; FCC Investigating BART for Cellphone Shutdown

Stories you shouldn’t miss:

1. Oakland public schools Police Chief Pete Sarna is being investigated for an alleged racist tirade, in which he allegedly told a black cop that no blacks should be allowed to live in Orinda and that “the only good n- is a dead n- and they should hang you in the town square to prevent any other n- from coming in the area,” the Chron reports, quoting an attorney who is representing a white Oakland schools cop who filed a complaint against the chief. Sarna allegedly went on the racist tirade while driving other Oakland schools cops home from a charity golf event.

He allegedly continued the racist attack when he dropped the white cop off at home, directing his tirade toward the man’s children and then later at an Asian-American cop. A source also told the Chron that Sarna had been drinking.
