OAKLAND (KCBS) – Police chief Howard Jordan disputed an account in a court-appointed monitor’s report that described two Oakland officers pointing their loaded weapons at a sleeping toddler, while serving a search warrant.
A section of the report by independent monitor Robert Warshaw that deals with officer use of force mentioned an incident where officers drew their weapons on a toddler during a misdemeanor search.
“That is a gross misrepresentation of the facts,” Jordan said.
He said the report omitted key details that demonstrate much more responsible policing.
