Berkeley Chief Now BART Chief – Revolving Door Corruption
According to the Chronicle:
“Daschel Butler, Berkeley’s retired police chief, will be appointed BART’s interim police chief while the transit district conducts a nationwide search for a new chief, the agency announced Tuesday.
Butler, who retired after 12 years as Berkeley’s chief in 2002, is expected to take charge in mid-January after completing state requirements. He’s replacing Chief Gary Gee, who announced he would retire earlier in the year after drawing criticism for the department’s handling of the Oscar Grant shooting early New Year’s Day. His last day is today.”
Yay for good ol’ boy politics. GO TEAM!
