Quan's legal advisor resigns over police invasion of #OccupyOakland

San Jose Mercury News:

7:20 a.m. Mayor's legal adviser resigns over raid

Dan Siegel, Mayor Jean Quan's legal adviser, posted on Facebook that he has resigned over Monday's police raid of Occupy Oakland.

His Facebook post: "No longer Mayor Quan's legal adviser. Resigned at 2 am. Support Occupy Oakland, not the 1% and its government facilitators."

Siegel and Quan have been friends for decades, since they attended University of California, Berkeley together. Siegel was on Quan's transition team before she took office in January and stayed on as an adviser after that, drawing controversy when he openly opposed a gang injunction policy sought by the city attorney.

Their biggest complaint: OWS is feeding the homeless. Which attracts the "wrong kind of people" to their neighborhood. Never asked is the question why, in one of the wealthiest states of the United States, the homeless are so starved that they flock to get food from people only slightly less desperate than them.
