CHIEF LERONNE ARMSTRONG: Saturday night, I went out to a scene of a young man that lost his life and a lady yelled out the window, 'do something about it.'
Without the resources, it makes it challenging to make Oakland safe. And more families find themselves dealing with trauma. I hope we can put politics aside and put public safety first.
