Oakland Interim Police Chief Manheimer’s Boogaloo Boys Officer Scandal: Black Police Chief Needed
(Last Updated On: September 10, 2020)

What’s going on with the Police Department and Police Interim Chief Susan Manheimer, that an officer would be allowed to wear, on duty, a shirt that many point to as in the style of the kind of Hawaiian Shirts worn by the racist violent Boogaloo Boys group? Moreover, does Susan Manheimer know that shirt she initially dismissed as a non-story because it was the kind of Hawaiian shirt one could by at Macy’s? (It wasn’t, and even though she took a photo to show the Tommy Bahama section at Macy, those pictures demonstrated that that style of shirt wasn’t there!)

And does Police Interim Chief Susan Manheimer know (and did anyone at OPD tell her) that the Boogaloo Boys-style Hawaiian shirts, not to mention Hawaiian shirts, are disallowed by the Police Department’s own code, which even specifically prohibits beach wear!? Consider that, in her email to an er, Manheimer herself never even raised that issue, yet more evidence to back the assertion of many, including this blogger, that she was simply covering for the Boogaloo Boys Hawaiian Shirt-wearing officer. Well, check this out, and thanks to an er on Facebook, who tipped me off to this information.

Here’s the most recent video blog on this, below, the OPD regulations section here, and the most recent post link is here:

Here is the section of Police Department regulations that covers “civilian clothing worn by members while on-duty”, and is here below, here by link, with the full text section posted below:
