I think that it is great the Piedmont Patch put this photo on their website but why did it take so long? That happened over 22 days ago. Was the release of the photo delayed by the OPD, Wellspring, technical difficulties, or something else? In these days of Instant everything on the Internet, I am just surprised.

Oakland police just released the photo to the media yesterday, 12/12. Don't know the reasons for their delay.
