Wayne Tucker: Oakland police chief resigns, blasts City Council - Inside Bay Area

Oakland police chief resigns, blasts City Council - Inside Bay Area: “Criticizing the Oakland City Council for paying only "lip service" to resources for public safety, embattled Police Chief Wayne Tucker announced his resignation this morning.
Tucker, at a press conference, spoke for about 10 minutes and then handed the podium to Mayor Ron Dellums.
"Quite frankly I've lost faith in the City Council," Tucker said. "They've given lip service to public safety in the city."
Oakland City Council members on Monday said that Tucker should resign or be fired because of scandals plaguing his department -- a position they planned to announce at a news conference today while calling for a vote of no-confidence.”

-- I don't think Chief Tucker understands how to run a police force in a 21st Century urban environment like Oakland, especially in the wake of the Oscar Grant murder.
