VIDEO: Oakland city attorney recommends $1 million settlement in police sex scandal claim |
OAKLAND (KRON) — The City of Oakland was recommended to pay nearly $1 million to settle a claim filed by the woman at the center of last year’s police sex scandal.

At Tuesday’s council meeting, City Attorney Barbara Parker’s office recommended settling the case for $989,000.

Jasmine Abuslin, formerly known as Celeste Guap, now 19, sued the city for $66 million in damages in September 2016. Absulin, who is the daughter of an Oakland police dispatcher, alleged that Oakland police officers exploited and victimized her in violation of her civil rights.

Criminal charges have been filed against four former and current Oakland police officers for allegedly knowing about her claims but failing to inform supervisors, having sex with her when she was underage and giving her confidential police information.

John Burris, the woman’s attorney, said he’s recommending that the woman accept Parker’s offer if it’s approved by the City Council.

Here’s what seems to be happening: you have cells in the testes that reproduce, producing one daughter cell like the parent and one that develops into a sperm cell. That’s the way it’s supposed to be. But carrying certain very specific mutations of FGFR2 or FGFR3 seem to cause occasional divisions that result in two daughter cells – so the pre-sperm cells that carry such mutations gradually become more and more common in the testes and produce a growing fraction of sperm with those mutations. It’s rather like cancer. You get clumps of cells producing the bad sperm.

Same things is happening with MEN2B (RET gene), which is also more common than it should be, although not as much so as achondroplasia.

Without this unusual mutational mechanism, there would be a shortage of dwarfs.

And while everyone desires a different level of isolated convenience, we all long for it to some extent - and take advantage of our various human-eliminating technologies to achieve it.
