Re: “Ambushed: Contra Costa County Law Enforcement Sets Up Surprise Stings To Help Federal Immigration Agents Arrest and Deport Immigrants

Im 62 yrs old woman and I grew up in Brentwood and its always been races ,big racial devisions ,and sadly to say some latinos grow up with out knowing their roots not knowing there own heritage language, because of shame off having farmers background ,been in poverty-poor or from Mixico etc. but those because of shame they lost themselfs because they'll never be excepted no matter what they do ,no roots ,no knowledge of self ,can speak or communicate in there own language ,but eating tortilla with peanut butter /coloring there hair blond ,but when you look in mirror you won't like your skin color or who you see in the mirror, the mirror tells how it is I'm sad to say , I went there to all their schools from elementary to high school,

Re: “Protest Trump's Inauguration in Oakland, But Please Don't Be Violent

You actually do have to talk to these people like children. They are little more than spoiled brats.

Seems like Contra Costa is motivated by greed and malicious dislike of immigrants (particularly brown immigrants). It's so easy to ignore ICE. Every other Bay Area county does. Something is rotting in Contra Costa.

All Law Enforcement Should Aide ICE in deporting Criminal Illegal Aliens who do not have a legal or moral right to be in the U.S . The U.S does not have open borders and will not allow these criminals to roam free.

Re: “How a Handful of Pro-Charter Billionaires Flooded Oakland's School Board Elections With Cash

The Oakland schools should be put in receivership again. Very few vocational skills are taught. These schools have become a place for criminal youth networking..
As victims of crime, seniors and homeowners, we strongly object to parcel taxes
going to this school to prison pipeline.

Contra Costa County needs to elect new leadership. It's time to clean house in order to promote our progressive values.

Re: “Ambushed: Contra Costa County Law Enforcement Sets Up Surprise Stings To Help Federal Immigration Agents Arrest and Deport Immigrants

Are you kidding me? Lets follow the facts: Kim commits a violent armed robbery. But thats not all. He is here illegally and then goes on to commit other crimes like possessing stolen property. David Jones had to cope with stress and had FOUR DUIs while here illegally. Are you kidding me? He could have killed someone. And then, the last sad victim of this story is Smith, who, guess what, committed a crime while here illegally too, Domestic Violence! What am I missing? If the Probation Chief and the Sheriffs Office didnt hand them immediately to ICE they would be guilty of incompetence. The Public Defender cannot possibly defend this nonsense. Maybe the author is hoping to win a Pulitzer prize on this ridiculous article. The only thing he proved is that the Trump Administration needs to bring the hammer down hard and now. You provided three great examples of why!

The Oakland system should be put into receivership. It is a place where youths network to plan crimes. Few vocational skills are taught. As victims of crimes and homeowners, we do not want our parcel tax to fund this criminal organization.

Re: “How a Handful of Pro-Charter Billionaires Flooded Oakland's School Board Elections With Cash

The Oakland school system, administrators, board should put in receivership again. Oakland schools are a place where young people network to commit crime. Few vocational skills are taught so kids could a living upon graduating.There is a 40% drop out rate in high school, as I recall. As victims of crime and homeowners, we don't want our parcel tax to pay for this school to prison pipeline!

Re: “My Afternoon With E-40: A Day in the Life of the Bay Area's Most Prolific and Respected Rapper

@Anthony Moore Who cares where he filmed the video -- it glorifies reckless driving and promoted "hyphy" as an Oakland cultural expression, on our streets where we have to drive, too. It was especially shameful that Youth UpRising steered impressionable youth the wrong way when YU put its members into that video. But then, E-40 lives in a gated development in Danville.

@Charlie Pine... I think the video you are referring to was filmed on a closed lot at the old 7th Street Train station.

Re: “As People of Color Disappear from Oakland, So Do My Memories

This "victim" culture and mentality is a ticket to nowhere.... Whine and cry your life away, while others improve their lives and community all around and in spite of you. Oakland "natives" need to protect themselves. They have no more right to housing in Oakland than the other 7 billion people on the planet

Re: “Top Commander Accused of Turning California National Guard Into ‘Criminal Syndicate’

I have been told by individuals who used to work in JFHQ that the State Surgeon's Office case workers work for a private company, not the Cal Guard.
The way the SSO is run, you'd think they are ALL government employees. Has anyone ever tried calling the SSO? They seem to never be in, they don't return calls, they were a malignant tumor on me until 'they' decided how they could kick me out.
There are internal reports from the Guard that they are/were not in compliance with records management laws. Go figure. If you ever had some involvement with the SSO, your records went missing, were falsified, or they claimed that the MEB/PEB selection sheet went missing in transit while being mailed.
My original case manager was Lomboy, he told me he was let go in Fall 2012, how is it that he was still signing things off in the files for the MND cases that the SSO had open on me?
The SSO had also closed out a case, done, fin, zum ende. Why did they string me on as if it was still open?
And this is already TL;dr my unit....oh boy.

Re: “Oakland Unified School District Reaffirms Sanctuary City Status

Get to these people later. First up, the criminal illegal alien multiple felons running around lose on our streets, being shielded by cities and local law enforcement. Such perversion seems to be one of Obama's favorite things. They must all go immediately, rounded up dead or alive. Then each successive priority of illegality must be dealt with seriously and in accordance with the law. Sorry, but the big immigration con job, on which so many earn their daily bread, is about to end. Lights out.

Re: “The Truth About Medical Marijuana Card Privacy

I recently applied for a Global Entry Pass in San Diego.My interview at the border office was going fine until the agent asked if I used Marijuana.In recent years I had a medical marijuana card but last year I did not renew because I found a source and did not need one.I told the agent that I did smoke at one time for a back problem but I had stopped.He told me that in 1973 I was busted for having a pipe and even though the charges were dropped the problem was my Medical Marijuana Cards and he doubted I would be approved.So beware the Feds know.

Omitted from this puff piece: Youth Uprising, a City-sponsored agency, brokered its youth members to E-40 for a rap video that praised reckless driving on Oakland streets ("hyphy").
