Keep Talking, Nate: Students Need The Cash

I sense that every lie word from Pittsburgh Bureau of Police Chief Nathan Harper regarding the police failures in Oakland is influenced by liability considerations -- the city's fear of civil claims from those arrested, shot (rubber bullets), gassed, and beaten.

After reading this (from Brian O'Neill):

A "trophy arrest" video making the rounds on the Internet shows a person made to kneel on Forbes Avenue before a dozen or more officers for a group photo by their supervisor. That captures the work of a Chicago police contingent Friday night. Pittsburgh police Chief Nathan Harper stated that's not a "trophy photo" but the required documentation of the arrest.
I make the over-under on the amount each word Harper says will cost the city in settlements/verdicts to be $3,500.

Keep talkin', Nate. For the children.
