Re: “The Real Reason Why Oakland's Police Chief Was Fired

They put OPD Capt. John Lois in charge of the investigation .. What a joke !! I was an Oakland Cop for more than 15 yrs and knew John very well. He had a reputation of stopping all the prostitutes on his beat and getting very "handsy" during his "pat down" searches. How fitting that they chose him

Re: “New Oakland-Made Saurkraut Takes Shots at Uber, Mayor

The photograph on the label was stolen, without credit or compensation, from freelance photographer Chris Duffey, a longtime contributor to Oakland Magazine and the East Bay Express. A representative of Phat Beets declined to cease using the photo when informed that it was stolen. So much for the ethics and good works of Phat Beets Produce, I guess.

Re: “How the Oakland Police Department Worked to Cover-Up Sex Crimes and a Home Invasion Committed by Cops

Mary Vail -- thanks for your response, that makes sense with regards to the civil lawsuit. Do you know if the district attorney is bringing criminal charges against the officers involved? If that is yet to be determined, do you know if the Cortez family has filed a criminal complaint--petitioning the DA to pick up the case?

Re: “Snoop Dogg, Too $hort Endorse California Marijuana Legalization in New Video

Patrick, CCHI is a fool's practice and will never happen. It was first introduced in 1990 and has failed to make the ballot in every election cycle since then, it's time to accept that it isn't gonna happen and move on. AUMA still allows you to grow your own while also allowing for unlimited possession limits at home and onsite consumption lounges, that is legal to me and everyone else I know. Prop 215 has done good things, but the unregulated status quo has caused problems and DEA raids, who said that they would return if a tightly regulated structure for cannabis isn't put into place in California. MMRSA and AUMA are the results of that, the nationwide movement towards ending prohibition cannot afford a loss in California this November, that is exactly what the prohibitionists want and all you're doing is siding with them and helping them get what they want.

Re: “California Set for Historic Vote on Cannabis Legalization

Will the the measure prohibit employers (public and private) from disqualifying prospective applicants from employment? And will it also prohibit employers (public and private) from testing for marijuana usage?

Re: “How the Oakland Police Department Worked to Cover-Up Sex Crimes and a Home Invasion Committed by Cops

Wow. This is some good fiction. I have had a hearty belly laugh over this supposed "reporting" and even better are the poor schmuck citizens who believe this crap. Go OPD!

Re: “How the Oakland Police Department Worked to Cover-Up Sex Crimes and a Home Invasion Committed by Cops

In response to Tommy's message, the Cortez family quickly and astutely discerned that OPD could not be trusted to investigate crime where all the suspects were OPD officers and hired a lawyer. Before you can sue a government defendant you have to go thru making an admin claim against City. Since the public learns much more about OPD misconduct after the victims sue the City, will be interesting to see if City tries to damage & info-control this one by settling the admin claim, to avoid lawsuit, which government defendants rarely do.

Re: “Landlord Being Sued for Allegedly Pushing Out SRO Tenants

Ahasuerus Christian, what makes you so certain I'm lying? Just curious. We posted notices in English AND Chinese that we would be remodeling common areas, and when our general contractor suggested all kitchens had to be done at the same time, we refused, instead insisting that they completely remodel one kitchen, and only start on the 2nd kitchen once the first one had been completed and put back in service. I get it, "bad landlord" articles are great click-bait, and a great way to further one's career in some cases. Consider that there are honest business people, unless and until there is actually evidence against them. In this case, there is no evidence because we have no desire to ever constructively evict anyone, and 100% respect Just Cause and all other laws. Does anyone else find it odd that we took a Death-trap building with exactly zero smoke detectors and zero carbon monoxide detectors and with raw sewage leaking into the basement (literally) and cured all those items, plus the leaky roof, plus are painting it, and I've said that to every reporter that has contacted me, but none have printed it? I continue to respond to all questions and inquiries and have offered to meet with the city or anyone else with a stake in the situation. They haven't--maybe because they're mistaken and embarrassed, maybe they're too busy writing their next piece of inaccurate click-bait. Oh well. We'll just keep improving Oakland, respecting tenants, and taking punishment while doing it. No love lost Oakland.

It's not about bad apples. To paraphrase Philip Zimbardo in the "Lucifer Effect", the barrel is bad. I don't just mean the OPD barrel. I mean the entire system of policing in this country is flawed and needs to be completely reworked.

Mary, OPD was a difficult place to navigate as a woman, a person of color, and someone committed to issues of social justice.

Great food, truly awful, terrible, no good, very bad service. It was time for them to move on - their hearts weren't in it anymore.

Everyone country wide should chip in a few bucks to AUMA. I did. It's easy and quick. You don't even need to punch in a credit card number, just use PayPal. Visit their website. I'm not affiliated with the group and I don't even live in California.
