Oakland Police Chief Kirkpatrick Fired By Mayor Libby Schaaf Night Before Police Commission Meeting Oakland - The official byline behind the firing of Oakland Police Chief Anne Kirkpatrick goes like this: On Thursday, February 20, 2020, the Oakland Police Commission voted to request that Mayor Libby Schaaf join the Commission in terminating Chief Anne Kirkpatrick from her position as Chief of Police. Mayor Schaaf agreed to exercise the provision, created by voter-approved Measure LL, to allow The Police Commission and the Mayor to jointly dismiss the Chief without cause. Then, the Mayor and The Police Commission issued statements. But the truth is vastly different. The real story is that Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf fired the Police Chief Anne Kirkpatrick the night before, and then she worked to put the face of the Oakland Police Commission on her action. Why? Political cover. It's pretty much lock-tight conjecture that the new Interim City Administrator Steven Falk had a hand in the action, given that he hired Richmond's black police chief and is said to have a politically sensitive eye. But, the overall story is that the show belonged to Mayor Schaaf. The Oakland Police Commission had tried to get rid of Police Chief Kirkpatrick for a solid year, and were met with roadblocks by the same Mayor Schaaf. Now, seeing that her hand-picked Top Cop went too far in calling for investigations of black Oakland Police Commissioners, Schaaf had to pull the trigger. Stay tuned.
