There are a lot of all encompassing statements in this little part of your opening portion of this post here cat. For instance, when you claim that "the nation" has renewed concerns, it isn't the entire nation in overwhelming numbers. In fact, I would just as easily say that "the nation" sees these Anarchist, and trouble makers for what they are, and doesn't approve of their attacks on law enforcement.
So what? It is a well worn tactic of the progressive left to rack up the complaints, whether warranted or not. Just ask any Mod in here. So this claim means absolutely NOTHING.Since the department’s eviction of Occupy Oakland from Frank H. Ogawa Plaza on Oct. 25, it has received hundreds of complaints about police misconduct, including accusations of excessive force and concealed name badges.
No it isn't....The dept has concluded that their Sherriff's are not responsible.The department is still investigating the case of Scott Olsen, an Iraq War veteran whose skull was fractured on Oct. 25 after he was hit by a projectile allegedly fired by the police at the Occupy encampment. Some other accusations of misconduct have prompted lawsuits.

“A lot of these things would be obviated if they followed their own policies,” said Bobbie Stein, a lawyer affiliated with the National Lawyers Guild who helped draft Oakland’s crowd control policy in 2005. The guidelines were developed under federal court supervision after the police fired wooden bullets and shot-filled beanbags at antiwar demonstrators at the Port of Oakland in 2003."
Hmmm...Seems like your NYT article is more about how the OWS crowd are responsible for demanding more police presence, and leaving the rest of the city underserved....Who gives a crap what some leftest lawyer says? Is he the be all, end all? Final word? Or just a useful idiot that you can use to distort his one sentence, while ignoring what the rest of the argument from the times story is saying?....
