Great: Oakland Police Sex Scandal Expands to San Francisco

In case you were not aware, there's near-chaos in local law enforcement in the East Bay right now.

Oakland's police chief resigned last week, and his planned replacement was shitcanned this week, all following the OPD's bungling of an sex scandal involving many officers and a woman named Celeste Guap, who was an underage prostitute when she met — and, she says, started sleeping with — the first of many police officers.

Meanwhile, OPD brass apparently knew all about it — former police Chief Sean Whent's wife supposedly received a message from Guap, according to the East Bay Express. In all, Guap claims to have had sex with two dozen police officers from five Bay Area police departments, she told the East Bay Times.

Now Guap says she had sex with San Francisco police officers as well. According to KRON-4, Guap told the television station that she hooked up with "like 2 from SF, but one was ex OPD."

Well, then.

As the EBX reported, Guap was 17 years old when she ran away from a pimp on International Boulevard in Oakland and into the protection of Brendan O'Brien, then an Oakland police officer.

The two began "dating," as Guap described their relationship, which involved numerous sexual encounters. Guap also had sex with other officers in OPD, where her mother worked as a dispatcher.

This is all coming from a department that prided itself on handling trafficked minors well.

O'Brien later committed suicide, following the suicide of his wife. Guap allegedly received tips from law enforcement about impending prostitution stings.

San Francisco police told KRON-4 that no specific officer was under investigation or suspicion of having had interactions with Guap, but an investigation had been launched nonetheless. 

If it is true, at least SF cops aren't alone.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
