If you throw M80s at a dog in Berkeley, they would arrest you. Apparently, the berkley police think conservatives are not even dogs.
How the police are unable to stop 40 or so 150lb scrawny thugs from assaulting people is nothing short of shocking.
Is someone threw an m80 at you in the commission of a crime, you would have the right to defend yourself using whatever means you can.
It is assault, nothing less.
BTW, the police didn't search antifa. You can watch them march right threw the barriers without going through the checkpoints.
There may have been no death threats in the case of hip-hop/rap events, but the narrative completely ignores the shootings and other crime that has accompanied such events. EBX itself documented such in the past years. See back issues.
The city is short resources to deal with what goes on here as just "normal wear and tear". If the promoters had managed to self control the problems in the past, just *MAYBE* the knee jerk reaction we're seeing *MIGHT* not be going on. But these problems are as much a part of the mystique as the music... Maybe the promoters don't want to keep it in hand.
And it seems even the venues themselves see these events as too much trouble... They don't see a reason to stand up for the promoters. What does that say?
Even efforts to build new housing in Oakland will be met with NIMBYs screaming "it changes the Oakland I grew up in"... Effectively demanding no changes here while the entire state, as a desirable place to live and work, is flooded with new bodies.
I know... Take a page from Trumps book and build a wall! Yeah, right.
Now that the drug fever has passed, how about a real solution... Like building new units? Naaaa.... Never gonna happen. The bread and circuses crowd has learned how to VERY effectively block ANY new development unless they are able extort a piece of the action from the people who invested in blighted and largely dilapidated property in risky parts of town with the idea of actually having them be more than death traps. As Clarence C. Johnson said, it's called realizing the value of the investment.
Even those who bought 50 years ago are allowed to do that... Aren't they? No? why not? Explain it to me.

Claerence you are close but missed the boat on this. Marduk was cancelled because a group made death threats on the employees and owners of the venue if Marduk were allowed to play there. This was based on allegations of them being nazi sympathizers, white supremacists, and having anti immigration beliefs.
From my understanding there were no death threats made in anticipation of the rappers concerts and it was more about people getting into fights, which happens at all kinds of places where large amounts of people are drinking and partying
Interesting how this article complete leaves out how the Swedish heavy-metal band Marduk, had to recently cancel their show. I guess this doesnt fit in with the author's narrative?
"Housing-policy experts say the steady drip of conversions is eliminating affordable rental housing in Oakland." Really? "Housing policy experts" say eliminating rent control inventory is eliminating affordable rental housing? Such insight.
Amazing EBX cant find any "housing policy experts" that say increasing housing supply will have downward pressure on rents. We can blame Oakland officials all we want, but when you try to do two opposing things - constrain market rate housing supply while also keeping rents affordable, you're going to have a byzantine set of laws such as purchasing conversion credits that are going to constantly need revision because of the meteoric rise of market value housing due to constrained supply.
If you bought $1k worth of Apple stock 10 years ago thats worth $10k now, would you sell it to a friend in a private sale for only $1500? No, you would sell it on the market for what its worth. Its called realizing the value of an investment.
Dope article. Bay Area stand up. - 1130Worldwide.com
The problems with the Oakland Fire Department is much deeper than the numbers. The critical issue is lack of qualified experience at top management levels and in other critical areas of the department. This was clearly evident when for almost 2 weeks after the Ghost Ship fire last year, the Fire Chief (Reed) made no public statements and deferred to her Deputy Chiefs to respond to questions at news briefings. The reason was that Reed was hired because of her former colleague at the City of San Jose, Deanna Santana, who was the City Administrator under Mayor Jean Quan. Once again friendships and relationships seem to trump training and experience at the top levels of management in Oakland. Reed was a numbers cruncher in San Jose, responsible for the budget. She was woefully lacking in field operation experience. She was also lacking in professional attitude and demeanor when she lost her cool at a public meeting when challenged by the public about her staffs performance in the north hills area. She should have never been hired for this job. More importantly, there has for years been a serious internal lack of technical expertise qualified to administer codes related to fire suppression systems, hazardous waste and plan checking for new development. Since at least the year 2000, there has only been one or two people on staff to manage those important program areas. All firefighters want to respond to calls in the field, wash the truck, go to Safeway, lift weights and look good in uniform. Somehow very few in Oakland seem willing or required to put in the hours of study and training in the more complex technical areas of fire safety. Change has to come from the top and the focus needs to be on more than just numbers.
Oakland lacks an effect policy for protecting and increasing affordable rental housing.
Oakland officials are not responsive to citizens's requests for help.
That's Oakland in a nutshell, baby!
This is a typical Oakland tale: city hall (Mayor and her staff) completely out of touch with the community. Police Department with no practical or effective idea of how to deal with gang and individual violence.
Solution is intelligent and competent leadership in Oakland. Which has for a very very long time seemed an impossibility.
Unless the press continues to ask the hard questions, nothing will be resolved. This has been going on since before MG Baldwin. Go beyond the information the PR person gives any reporter. It's as bad, or worse, as the listed comments in this site.
Once again the problem in Oakland is much less a computer system problem as it is a people problem. A new expensive program with a fancy acronym, headed by yet another high paid manager and trying to do all things for all people may not be the panacea suggested by the author of this article. For staff, the mission will be confusing when you combine life safety goals with commensurate goals of avoiding displacement of tenants and reducing costs for owners. Those goals will inevitably be in conflict. When that occurs, which goals are the priority in decision making will be problematic, inconsistent and ultimately political. At the end of the day, "code enforcement" includes zoning codes, building codes, fire codes and housing codes. In addition to looking at different things when inspecting a property, the people who perform each task have different backgrounds, education and training. The current situation is that those people do not communicate with each other in any meaningful way in order to identify problem properties and jointly coordinate mitigation plans. If they did, the recent tragedies, where all facets of code enforcement had knowledge, could never happen. In most cities, there are internal systems of communication that make code enforcement happen every day. Oakland's Building Department has budgeted and spent millions over the last 20 years promising high tech solutions to this inspection problem and nothing has changed. Why will it be different this time? What really has to change is the current inexperienced leadership, especially at the top of the food chain. There has to also be a retraining of staff so that they realize how the work they do is connected organizationally and systems set up to facilitate internal communications. It's not the system, it's the culture!
Wow sounds like to me, quite a few TOP RANKED EMPLOYEES!!! NEW & OVER LOOKED THE WELL BEING OF OUR CHILDREN & OAKLANDERS.. HMMM & SHE'S PUSHING FOR ANOTHER TERM. NOT
I dont always agree with her decisions (almost never), but whether she know its not not, Jonathan Fearn is a smart choice as a developer with a background in affordable housing and community development. He is aware of issues regarding dentrification, displacement and the needs for housing for all income levels and a proponent of environmentally smart urban planning and land use that does not displace long term residents.
It was NOT mentioned that prior to joining SummerHill in 2006, Mr. Fearn worked as Development Manager for Em Johnson Interest, a real estate development firm specializing primarily in affordable housing and economic development projects within low income communities. Mr. Fearn is a certified LEED and GreenPoint Rated Professional and holds a Masters of City Planning with a concentration in Housing and Community Development from UC Berkeley,
No re-imagination of code enforcement is necessary for rental properties.
A person renting out a property isn't a low income individual. Certainly a company isn't. If either category can't or won't maintain the property so as to make it habitable by the code, they need to divest, either voluntarily or be forced.
Cases like Ghostship and the halfway "halfway house" cannot be tolerated.
Ya know, ya gotta wonder why he couldn't get the arithmetic correct... And if something THAT simple is wrong, what else is?
You might want to check your references before including incorrect information in your articles.... RIO lasers in Santa Clara, which is owned by OptaSense in the UK, actually manufactures semiconductor lasers and has NOT made any bid on the FedBiz website for a border wall.
You hit it right on the head. I assume the film thinks itself quirkily original when it is in fact just plain odd and unsatisfying.
