EVER COMMEND A COP-OP?
I’m sending this to Michael K. Meehan, Chief of Police, Berkeley Police.
I just witnessed (Wednesday) as fine a work of Berkeley policing as I’ve ever seen.
The man seated near me outside the Cafe Mediterraneum on lower Telegraph, was stark raving mad. Med owner Craig Becker heard the commotion in his mezzanine office and came outside to chase off the guy, who had stowed his gear outside the store.
Officer Brian Mathis, who had been working this case from nearby, drove up and approached the man.
