Copy Of -Oakland Coalition Calls for Firing Police Chief Anne Kirkpatrick

The Coalition for Police Accountability is calling for the firing of Oakland Police Chief Anne Kirkpatrick in the wake of the 2018 police killing of Joshua Pawlik, a homeless man who was shot 22 times by four officers.

 

The coalition is directing its demand toward federal court-appointed Compliance Director Robert Warshaw, who has the power to fire the chief under the court-supervised Negotiated Settlement Agreement (NSA), which has governed Oakland police reform efforts since 2003.

 

In a prepared proclamation, the coalition said Warshaw should remove the chief “and install an interim chief until the Oakland Police Commission can conduct a search, and identify qualified candidates for consideration.”
