OAKLAND (AP) -- Two police officers should be fired and another 42 officers disciplined or reprimanded for misconduct during the Occupy Oakland protests that turned violent late last year and in January, city leaders said Friday.

The early findings come from a police internal affairs investigation triggered by more than 1,100 complaints issued against officers following the three major protests, police Chief Howard Jordan said.

An internal affairs investigation has found that 44 officers committed some sort of misconduct, ranging from use of excessive force to failing to turn on their tiny video cameras attached to their uniforms, Jordan said.


I suspect that the number of Officers guilty of violating the Constitution is much higher but this is still good news. Protest should not be treated as Rioting. No one resisted arrest and aside from some agent provocateurs/morons, no one was aggressive or threatening to police or the public.
