Each uniformed Oakland Police Officer serves 1,637 or more residents!
--exclusive analysis by 'Northern California News' service (NCN)
The City of Oakland's police force includes 711
to Jerry Brown,
[editorial calculation] so there are 54 square miles in Oakland, divided into 711 uniformed officers, comes out to about 13 officers per square mile, I guess that's not too bad, if all of the officers are out in the street 24-hours a day... hmmm... if we allow them to get some sleep that cuts the effective number by a third - giving us only 237 uniformed police officers during any normal 8-hour shift to serve the estimated population of 388,100 - giving us one single police-person for every 1,637 Oakland residents. (feel better now?) But when they say 'uniformed police officer' does that include the 'meter maids'?
With most of the large 'blue-collar' industry
having abandoned Oakland for Mexico or red-chinese slave-labor camps, (the
largest industrial employer is the Clorox Company with 1340, and the next
largest industrial employer is "Mothers Cake & Cookie Company" with
only 540 employees...)
Actually, Oakland's biggest 'industry' is government
(desk-job) workers. Here are the stats:
The Federal Government; the US 'federales' employ
in Oakland, including the IRS.
Next add the 6,700 from the Oakland Unified
School District, the 4,800 City of Oakland employees, another 3,000
State of California employees in Oakland and throwing in the 1,925
Alameda-Contra Costa Transit District, and BART, and some smaller agencies,
not on the chart...
So what's the point of all the numbers? Police work is about the only honest and useful service that any level of government can be justified in providing - providing it is done with honor and respect of the tax-paying-law-abiding Citizens... (unlike the recent news from Mexico that even outrages our traditional-but-true stereotype of the bribe-taking Mexican cop or government official)...
The main 'industrial output' of the City
But they can only 'afford' to pay the salary for 711 police officers.
During any eight hour shift there is only one
police officer for 1,637 Oakland residents
But even 711 police officers are too many for
the local liberal-media
They recently tried to incite another 'Rodney
King' riot by repeating a videoclip on TV
Good luck 'Mayor Moonbeam' - you're going to need it!
