Everybody’s waiting for Superman


Talking to these suspects day in and out, there’s a higher percentage today with no sense of right and wrong. It’s frightening, but we are creating super-criminals.

Thus saith an Oakland police sergeant, quoted in a Chronicle story about the murder rate in that city. The story goes on to say how murder is “woven into the civic consciousness” of Oakland, making it the state’s “most murderous” city, after Compton.

Probably when the Raiders were in L.A., Oakland was tops.
