Mayor Jean Quan of Oakland California now openly criticized by police, lawyers, the ACLU, and her own staff (a few of which have resigned). Following Oakland California’s mayors second decision to again raid Occupy Oakland, her advisors have issued resignations.
What makes the evictions at Occupy Oakland a bit different than the evictions served on other encampments is that after the first eviction yielded horrific damage to peaceful protesters, Mayor Jean Quan invited the protesters to return to their encampment. Then once again, she ordered the Oakland police department to use force to again clear the park. It is as if the police are deer hunting and Mayor Quan is filling the feeders with corn. It appears her advisers have had enough of her complete and utter incompetence.
Prior to the early hours of Monday November 14, 2010 Dan Siegel was the personal lawyer to Oakland, CA Mayor Jean Quan. Mr. Siegel Esq. resigned Monday morning at 2:00 AM when he became aware that a second raid on Occupy Oakland’s encampment was imminent. Putting as much distance as he can between he and Mayor Quan, Mr. Siegel said:
“We really are at a crossroads here. As an elected official, you need to know which side you are on or you will get caught in the intersection, as Jean Quan did,” – Richmond Mayor Gayle McLaughlin (3)
