Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
The saddest commentary on what happened to you is that no other journalist attends these hearings. Where is the free press that seems limited to opinion pieces on the freedom of the press but does not test it in real life?
When I was going to grade school our teachers constantly told us the difference between the USA and the USSR was the latter's citizens had plenty of rights on paper but none of them in reality. That way they could claims their people were the freest in the world while they systematically enforced fascism.
That sound I hear now is all my teachers, who tried to install patriotism in me and make me a good American, spinning in their graves. After all this "indoctrination," it's the reality of America that changes how we perceive it.
Stay strong -- we are with you! And so appreciative of your work!
Keep up the great work.
Wow. And it will probably only get worse.
If people have a right to a closed hearing, then it seems like the judge should ask them before the proceedings begin, and take appropriate action. Other than that, the public should have the right to observe.
Thanks. I went to one in Arizona and they heard the cases with 30-50 people
"defendants" at a time. It was insane. They had no translation, and would enter their pleas en masse as "guilty." It was astonishing. That said, this was under Obama. I would hate to see what it's going to be like under Trump.
Agreed. Thank you for your work. I hope more journalist's will flood the immigration court's and report about ICE actions and procedures.
Keep up the good work, and consider whether you need legal assistance to preserve a free press.

Jon Stewart: "I didn't realize Oakland had an active KKK branch."
The question is why are ILLEGAL immigrants even allowed to enroll?!?

Absolutely agree with all positions opposing continued funding of DAPL(and any other fossil fuel infrastructure investments)for all the reasons mentioned.
To those who say staying invested is more powerful in terms of changing their activities, I say on the contrary: Divesting until such time as the company complies with the wishes of its investors(the people ofCALpers)will be a much more powerful way to effect changes that leaves the way open to reinvest.
Secondly, it is the money of the people of CALpers. They get to decide whether the place they invest it meets their ethical and moral standards. Anything else is placing profits over people and life. Get busy finding and funding Green Infrastructure to look at long term benefits, which are not necessarily measured in dollars, to the people who recive CALpers.

I support you Kevin de Leon ! Great job !!!
IMO, the news from Darwin BondGraham about the new police chief's salary lack important context.
So what that she is being paid more than her predecessor? Why would that be important? Is she actually more qualified and experienced? Is the new wage actually more appropriate and competitive?
People with different levels of experience, competence and potential get paid different amounts.
How much do other police chief's get paid in City's of similar size? I would say similar size and crime and reform issues (should be paid more because the challenge is greater) but it is so bad here that there may not be any comparable data points.
Is the pay at the median, at the top, at the bottom? There is this thing out there called a competitive market. If we are paying the new chief compensation that reflects the market norms, then so be it.
If she is being paid well above those norms, then there is a problem. Given our problems and challenges are likely way above the norm, somewhat above may actually be OK.
Without this kind of information, all Darwin is doing is throwing out a hand grenade for someone to jump on.
Seriously? What other conspiracy theories do you subscribe to? Were the undercover police shape changing reptiles by any chance?
That is not even worthy of a fake news sighting.
I think the City Council should oppose the present plans. When people buy into a neighborhood, they have a right to expect that neighborhood changes won't undermine their investment of both money and heart. The City's own Design Guidelines for Corridors and Commercial Areas, adopted in 2013, supports this principle. It specifies that new large buildings should be much more integrated into a neighborhood's existing buildings than the huge slab shown here, and it explains how this can be achieved. The design that's on the McGrath Properties website would be wonderful, for instance. And although more people spoke in favor of the project, numbers alone are hardly the only criterion for approval, and it's one that the Planning Commission often ignores.
Also, I think McGrath should do more to provide affordable units, and I'm worried about Boston Properties' involvement. It doesn't have a good reputation as a landlord.
