Middle-of-the-road Alameda passed a rent moratorium . . . twice.

Re: “Alameda’s District Attorney Wants to Charge Oakland Cops, But Key Witness Sent to Florida

Blatant organized crime by so many paid to fight that. Why so lack of trust and respect! Evidence of their national criminal organization one right after another. Excuses are nothing but more proof. Police policing themselves is like the Mafia's policing themselves.

Re: “Alameda’s District Attorney Wants to Charge Oakland Cops, But Key Witness Sent to Florida

O'Malley should explain why she can't go ahead and file charges and then request that her witness be extradited back to CA. Especially since the witness apparently bit a guard in self-defense. Even if the guard was not attempting to rape her when she bit him, it was extremely irresponsible of the alleged "treatment center" to allow Guap to go to jail, given that she had been victimized/trafficked by law enforcement. Get the kid back to CA and into treatment with a more reputable provider. And if this needs investigating by an outside agency, the state is no longer outside the scandal.

Re: “Alameda’s District Attorney Wants to Charge Oakland Cops, But Key Witness Sent to Florida

Thanks again for your excellent and continuing coverage on this. What I haven't seen addresses here or anywhere else is any attention on Miss Guapes parents, one of whom works for OPD. These alleged crimes took place when Guape was a minor, which may not imply negligence on the part of her parents, but certainly raises questions. Not to mention how quiet her(Miss Guap') have been in light of the fact that their daughter was raped sex trafficked. Someday perhaps we'll all know the truth, in the mean time keep up the good work.

Re: “There's zero chance the Oakland Raiders move to Las Vegas (if they do, I'll sport a Mark Davis bowl cut for a week)

Mark Davis says it would bring the raiders together haha that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Raider fans are the most die hard fans in the league that there's ever been. Oakland makes the money they just haven't been good in about 14 years , but its making the move to excellence... Just win baby! I meen oakland makes the money hungry people dealing with the raiders, but these damn people always want more and more can't something not be all about the money for once and keep them in oakland Raider fans want a new stadium ,but if it takes a long time to get they don't care, if they have there team doing good they're going to bring in the money and don't care about bad water plumming in the stadium! We are Raider fans and there just something about having the raiders in oakland and think about the public for once rich people, we Love our team and it won't be the same in any other city i promise you won't be anywhere close to the past Raiders!

Re: “Beware a Bigger Clitoris

My name is ARRON MORGAN from NORWAY am here today to testify about my true life story many men all over the world today are suffering of small joystick (PENIS) and weak erection of the penis. I am 40 and have lived a very lonely life because of it. I can,t even look at women in the eye because of it. It has caused me great torment through-out my life. I had sex with a lot of girls but also had a lot of rejections and a lot of girls mock on my size. For me the toughest part is not that girls mock on my size but when my wife packed out of the house and started seeing another man. Let’s me say that 75% of men & youth all over the world are really suffering of small joystick (PENIS) and weak erection of the penis. Some men today no longer enjoying their spouse any more, due to the size and weak erection of the penis, because of this act their ladies went out to have sex with those men that their penis is bigger still strong and stand erect. This act broke marriages or relationship. My condition have changed today after contacting DR.UJIAGBE the great herbalist, If you,re in the same condition please contact him via his email OR WHATSAPP +2348169911981

Re: “Just Vegas, Baby?: What Are the Odds that the Oakland Raiders Move to Sin City?

"Raiders and the NFL would cover $500 million of the stadium's $1.9 billion price tag, with private investors coming up with $650 million and the public forking over the rest. "


Raiders give $500M, Nevada contribution specifically *limited* to $750m, *Sands/Majestic* covers all the rest, including overruns.

Tax Increment Financing demands from Sands/Majestic (to recoup investments) were eliminated last week, with the quid-pro-quo being Sheldon Adelson agreeing to buy ±5% of the Raiders for $100M (if plan is approved by Nevada & NFL).

Re: “When Landlords Target Tenants in Rent-Controlled Buildings

What a disgrace. We allow this kind of greed and corruption in this great nation. I don't even live there but from what I've read, it's appalling. May be a nice apartment, but I'd rather live in dangerous freedom, than a controlled dictatorship. I always thought this country was capitalism based. Now I see the real truth. We live in a oligarchy controlled by greedy, corrupt, apathy limited people, who could care less if you live or die. Live on the street or in their apartments. It doesn't matter to them. We are all just replaceable numbers who line their pockets. Absolutely zero apathy for mankind in any way. God forgive you all. Because ultimately, it's harder for a rich person to enter heaven, than it is to pass a camel through the eye of a needle. This property manager and owner are below scum.

Re: “Tickets On Sale Now for 'Route 64': A Special Marijuana Legalization Discussion and Event

I would love to be a panelist at this event so I could answer any questions about Prop. 64 vs Prop. 215! We already have the most federally conforming law (Prop. 215) in the nation and we don't want to lose it with a new law (Prop. 64) that blatantly fly's in the face of federal law! California has purposefully mislead and misguided us ALL in the way Prop. 215 is supposed to be followed and how the industry is supposed to be being run. It's really simple folks, only two entities are allowed under current state law (Prop. 215) which are a "collective" or a "cooperative" so that there is NO "sale" or "profit" ever occurring. The "grey area" was created by smart lawyers, lawmakers and corporate interest who knew that if SB 420 didn't specifically say "sales" and "profiteering" was or wasn't lawful then they could push individuals and organization who don't know any better into forming other entities that are unlawful. Yes, this is how our great state is able to "sales" tax a controlled substance and therefore "profit" from such as well by collecting money from unlawful business activities! Now our lawmakers and the corporate profiteers want to cover up this travesty of justice and the fleecing of millions of tax dollars from medical patients and NOW make it legal at a state level (MCRSA & Prop. 64) to "sell" and "profit" from pot and potheads as they call us and refer to us repeatedly. Well we have news for them now, we are not going to let this "cannabis conspiracy" continue and we will fight to keep our rights to grow and use this plant as we see fit! We will not sit back and watch our Rights go away as easily as they think we will once everyone knows and see's the truth about what's been going on here in California and why! I would gladly debate anyone especially Mr. Newsom on these facts and hopefully open the eyes of those who don't know the truth behind this double whammy (MCRSA & Prop. 64) and why we must vote NO on Prop. 64 and repeal the recent legislature trying to turn Prop. 215 upside down without voter approval!

What keeps the DA from charging--then requiring the witness to return for the prosecution? One would think there is an abundance of evidence for filing.

Re: “Town Business: Diversifying the Police; Honoring Bessie Coleman; Taxing Uber Drivers

"According to the city's most recent recruitment report...18 percent of [cops] are Black, while 40 percent of OPD officers are white. Only 12 percent of Oakland's cops are women."

Oakland community groups have long been pressing hard for a police department that looks more like Oakland. To essentially deaf ears in city hall, however.

The problem of hiring mostly locals to be cops here is complex and legally challenging.

On the other hand a more diverse police department is definitely possible, with more like 50% female cops we could see real changes in community acceptance and improved police ethics.

Don't hold your breath. Change in Oakland comes very slowly, if ever.

Re: “Should Oakland Even Bother Trying to Keep the Raiders?

I want the Oakland Raiders to win and keep selling tickets as this minimizes the risk to Oakland and Alameda county taxpayers footing the bill from the last “deal” made by the Raiders.
The Raiders are an Athletic Entertainment industry, I personally have no interest in their entertainment and even less so in supporting them financially to stay in Oakland.

So let’s just suppose that some (idiot) decides to build a $1.5 billion stadium in Oakland for the Raiders. As I see it for football it will be used for 8 days each year (nine if they make playoffs). How much revenue can 8 football days bring into this prosperous city and county? We have a dearth of hotels and you can be sure all the TV and NFL executives will fill out the delux SF hotels. Yes there are local vendors who can “clean up” during a game but with overpriced crappy food and parking rates that would cause a banker to blush, there are better ways to use the existing complexes.

I say No to any public funding of Raider maintenance but accommodation and encouragement to stay are fine. I suggest the mangers of the complex look to music and other events to fill the existing stadium and coliseum with customers on a regular basis. Make Oakland a real venue destination, not a sports destination.

The Raider support base is not particularly in Oakland, but in all the surrounding communities. The Raider Entertainment Industry has shown previously that is has no local loyalty and clearly they are planning to move again. Fact is you can see the games far better on your HD home screens now than you can at a game!

The NFL is a very well run business organization. They know that they have a huge audience and they will do what it takes to maintain and grow that audience. Loyalty to fans, non-existent here, this only occurs in Green Bay WI where their team is a publically owned non-profit franchise.

Re: “Celeste Guap, Woman at Center of Oakland Police Sex-Crime Scandal, Arrested in Florida

Seems to me like someone wanted to make sure she would not be available to testify before a Grand Jury that might be convened by any prosecutor seeking indictments expanding the breadth of those police officers potentially facing criminal charges.I can't think of any other reason to place her beyond usual subpoena range.
