“If you do the wrong thing, we are going to look at that critically.” Those words, from then-Oakland police chief Sean Whent to a group of young officers, resound in Peter Nicks’ superb new documentary “The Force.” Whent is talking about temptations to a cop on the street, but it also applies to the police leadership’s own responsibilities. Faced with tough decisions in the most complicated of battles, is anyone strong enough to do what’s right? Nicks, who made the excellent 2012 “The Waiting Room” documentary about Oakland’s Highland Hospital, is back with a parachute drop into the middle of the city’s police department — its struggles, controversies and continued slog toward reform.

- Contra Costa County judge accused again of misconduct
By Bob Egelko - Tuesday Oct 17, 2017
A veteran Contra Costa County judge with an extensive record of discipline was accused by the state Commission on Judicial Performance on Tuesday of further misconduct in two criminal cases. But a lawyer for Superior Court Judge Bruce Mills accused the commission of a conflict of interest because the defendant Mills sentenced in one of the cases has publicly accused the commission of covering up judicial misconduct. The defendant, Joseph Sweeney, who heads an organization called Court Reform LLC, has been among the most prominent voices in a campaign that has led the state auditor to begin a probe of the commission’s operations.
