Calif. police to release report on '09 SWAT raid

Oakland police report expected to criticize decision making on deadly day

San Jose Mercury News

OAKLAND, Calif. — A report to be issued today by the Police Department on the shooting deaths of four Oakland police officers March 21 is expected to criticize decisions made by a number of police commanders that day.

The inquiry was commissioned last spring by then-acting police Chief Howard Jordan and was meant to get to the bottom of what happened March 21 and provide lessons that could help Oakland police and other law-enforcement agencies avoid similar tragedies.
