Seven (7!) Percent of Oakland Cops Live in Oakland
I don't know what the right percentage is, regarding cops living where they work. Though I am partial to 100 percent of cops living or having had lived in the city they police. But whatever the right number is, the percentage is larger than friggin' seven percent, which is what you find in Oakland. Now is this why Oakland cops have such troubled community relations? Well... actually, yeah, in part. Maybe not the majority part. But certainly a partial part.
