[typo is in the original article title, should read "Oakland"]
No matter what the outcome, the federal court takeover of the Oakland Police Department is going to cost taxpayers millions starting with the $270,000-plus-a-year salary for the new compliance director.
Thats $13,000 more than what former Police Chief Howard Jordan was making before he jumped or was pushed into medical retirement this month.
In addition to the $270,000 salary, compliance director Thomas Frazier will receive benefits equal to those paid to the city administrator and the police chief, including any unused vacation, sick or executive leave that can be cashed out when the job ends.
The city is contesting the benefit extras, which U.S. District Judge Thelton Henderson included in his order to the city last month. However, it is not appealing Fraziers salary.

Pretty dumbsh!t article.
Not that there are not a host of Freepers with just as little brain power as the columnist.
Let me correct this.
City of San Francisco taxpayer’s stupid refusal to elect a reform administration to clean up serious long standing abuses is now quite properly costing them a fortune.
They deserve what they are getting.
And if you or I give such things a pass in our communities then we do too.
Yeah? If you didn’t elect, by attrition and mistake , that number than a dead tree stump Jean Kwan I’d feel for bit, yuh gets whatz yuh getz when an avowed commie is running things.
Then again, Oak Town is the most corrupt city in the Bay Area.
I won’t do business in a place that demands I pay prevailing wage, which was $17 less than what I paid my own guys, only to learn you were trying to force me to hire locals for your asinine “jobs program”
No problem. The rich will pay.
