www.undergroundworldnews.com Update: This is the Same East Bay That had the Dam Destroyed. The Federal Bureau of Investigation is committing $110,000 toward the creation of a state-of-the-art center for investigations in the Oakland Police Department, according to a briefing provided by OPD and the FBI at the Oakland City Council's public safety committee meeting last night. The FBI funds will support the buildout of a $173,000 work space inside OPD's Police Administration Building, and officials said the center will utilize the latest technologies to analyze social networks and track persons of interest across state lines. The joint effort will bring as many as ten FBI agents into OPD’s criminal investigations division to expand the department’s investigative capacity. The new facility will include twelve computer workstations with access to FBINet, the bureau’s classified intranet. According to a 2007 General Accounting Office report to Congress, FBINet "communicates secret information, including investigative case files and intelligence pertaining to national security," and has been a critical tool in the creation of so-called fusion centers that collect and share law enforcement information between federal, state and local agencies. http://www.eastbayexpress.com/SevenDays/archives/2015/05/27/ten-fbi-agents-joining-oakland-police-department?utm_source=dlvr.it&utm_medium=twitter

http://democracynow.org - In Oakland, California, a third police chief has resigned in just over a week amid a massive scandal in which multiple Oakland police officers are facing allegations of statutory rape and human trafficking after allegedly having sex with an underage girl who was working as a sex worker. On Friday, interim Police Chief Paul Figueroa resigned from his post for undisclosed reasons after just two days on the job. His predecessor, Ben Fairow, lasted just six days on the job. The string of resignations began when Police Chief Sean Whent resigned on June 9. On Friday, Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf announced she would not appoint another acting chief, instead putting the Oakland Police Department under civilian control. We speak to two reporters who helped break the Oakland Police Department sex crimes story. Darwin BondGraham and Ali Winston are journalists with the East Bay Express.

A lot of dedication went in to creating this video, so I hope you enjoy and are more informed about the University Police at SUNY Oswego. All music is from SoundCloud.
Celeste Guap Facebook Page: Oakland Police Mentions, Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan & Political Friends Celeste Guap is a now 19-year old Richmond woman who is the focus of claims that when she was 16, she had sexual relations with three Oakland police officers - one of the men is Brendan O'Brien, who committed suicide last year. This sex scandal (as the media calls it) has opened an internal affairs investigation that started months ago, but was leaked to the media last week. Ms. Guap has revealed a lot via her Facebook page; her Instagram account is marked private. Even then, on Facebook Celeste has a photo of an Oakland police SUV in Richmond after midnight on April 27th 2016, and she states that she got a ride back home from the Oakland police - that late at night? What's particularly interesting is that she has some powerful Facebook friends, and while Ms. Guap and I aren't that, we have 17 friends in common, including and most notably Oakland Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan and Berkeley Councilmember Kriss Worthington. In addition, she has TV personalities Joe Fonzi, Wendi Tekuda, and many political operatives - and that's just among the Facebook friends she and I share. What's a now 19-year-old Richmond woman who's Mom is an Oakland police dispatcher, doing with such connections? Moreover, how did she come to have such relationships? And what did she know about events that led to the passing of Brendan O'Brien? And what, if anything, has she told Oakland Councilmember Kaplan, as the At-Large representative is right there in City Hall and is in the best position to get information from Ms. Guap and give it to her, in turn - of course, this is my speculation. But the connection on social media invites such thoughts. Stay tuned. http://www.zennie62blog.com/2016/05/15/celeste-guap-facebook-page-oakland-police-mentions-councilmember-kaplan-political-friends/ - vlog produced by Zennie Abraham Zennie62 Blog http://www.zennie62blog.com - youtube video A Zennie Abraham YouTube Vlog Zennie62, Oakland's 1st YouTube Partner Channel, covers San Diego Comic Con, NFL Draft, Oakland Raiders, CES Las Vegas, The Academy Awards - CBS SF Bay Area Follow @Zennie62 on Twitter https://twitter.com/zennie62 オークランドの襲撃者
