Almost a year to the day after vowing to conduct a full investigation of police behavior during the Occupy-Oakland related violence on October 25, 2011, the Oakland Police department has issued a report that says that of the 1,1267 complaints made by citizens around Occupy-related events, the City has completed investigation of only half of the complaints. And among that half, investigators found misconduct by police in 30% of the complaints they researched.
What were the most common types of misconduct? Besides failing to activate a video camera, excessive force, improper supervision or command, failure to accept a complaint, refusing to provide names when required, and false reporting topped the list.
