The rift

David Siders, The Record’s former city hall reporter, dipped into his old beat from his perch at The Sacramento Bee, where he now covers Gov. Jerry Brown. He banged out this story detailing the fight between City Manager Bob Deis and theĀ  Stockton Police Officers’ Association, which Siders says is “approaching an all-out war.”

The story hits on the house police bought next to Deis and the billboards they put up. Former Mayor Gary Podesto got in a word:

“There isn’t a hell of a lot you agree with when you’re broke,” said Gary Podesto… “That makes it a lot tougher. But the vitriol doesn’t help.”
