wow . throughout all of this, nobody in oakland government referred guap to services? smh
Obvious Tong was working during visit at the Guap estate. Was Hill on-duty during visiting? Obviously also Guap received Hill's message (904 in OPD 9 codes) and stopped texting Hill concerning coming over for sex. But why after being so spy like did Hill thank her? I guess he is a polite child molester! Is Tong still working everyday with school age children and "mentoring" the Explorer Post??
So many unanswered questions!! More to come I hope...
This is a very bad landlord. He took out all our belongings without notice. We are using law to protect ourselves. He has a Chinese Wife that's why he believes that he understands our Chinese don't know how to use the law to help ourselves. But don't forget that this is in the USA not in China. We will win the case and we will see.
Brown seems very concerned....??? Does he want an "atta boy" for referring her to social services?? Can't hide behind Magnus there Brown, this is on your watch...how are YOU going to handle this??

East bay Express should get an award for breaking this story; you guys are putting the Chronicle and Mercury news to shame.
Why is the City of Oakland ordering a friend to demolish their illegal in law bedroom unit?
It is built in their townhouse condo basement and is constructed to code.
It's been there for 25 years and was reported by a neighbor. This 16 x16 room has been home to numerous students and teachers over the years.
I'm stunned to learn there is no other option than to demolish the living space.
Can anyone explain the logic?😠
This is all news to me on the East Coast
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.
Can't someone look for the mailer ID from the mailing barcode to determine who the sender is? who is MID 901486?
I'm a victim of this bubble, pushing me out of Oakland. If I hadn't fallen in love, it would have pushed me completely out of the bay area.
Fuck the rich who have no conscious and push out so many. And fuck the city council. Wholey ineffective with no respect for their constituents. Oakland is now just a lighter version of San Francisco. Just not much lighter.
Why does the Mayor continue to spend and give away tax payers money like bottled water at a family bbq? Example, paying a private investigator to find out what city employees are talking, really?
She didn't, nor a guy that the city was paying $330.000 a year in salary apply for a $2 million grant that would help get many youth off the streets, including hanging out in Dt Oakland with nothing to do but shot and kill innocent people, unacceptable!!😠
Mr. Norgren, the wanted tax fraud scoundrel, has been arrested by the US Attorneys office in the PI and has been extradited to the US. He now awaits a court hearing in Federal Court under Judge Ryo on July 5, 2016 in Oakland, CA . For more information contact Special Agent Andres Gonzales at the IRS. Finally he's been nabbed and awaits justice.
Unless they have removed the information since Monday's City Council action, information about who is behind the deceptive mailer and the group that calls itself Jobs4Oakland may still be found in a recent press release at https://finance.yahoo.com/news/media-advis… and http://nocoalinoakland.org/who-owns-tls/
Go home coal, you're toxic.
I think they may be in violation of the City's lobbyist ordinance. If not we need to revise it, this large of a mailer represents significant money. We should know who funded it.
I got this mailer too, and I find this summary of its inaccuracies, omissions, and outright lies - as well as the apparently phantom nature of "Jobs 4 Oakland" - to be quite newsworthy. Please continue reporting it.
We need a device to monitor the cell phones used by law inforcement and the DA's Office to build misconduct cases on them since they are the primary protectors, benefactors and clients of Oaklands Human Trafficking criminals and I can prove it
Thank God the Oakland City Council took the correct action last night and denied Tagami and his cast of opportunists the ability to process coal at the Port of Oakland. Tagami and his cast of local cronies should be ashamed of themselves. For people like Tagami, Marc McClure, Greg McConnell and Jerry Bridges, who all have long histories in Oakland politics, to use the community with inflated promises of jobs is a disgrace. For over a hundred years, people of color have paid a high price, putting their own health at risk doing jobs and living near industries that are slowly killing them. To promote a false choice of jobs or poor health to justify greed and opportunism is borderline criminal.
Oops! In spite of "deceptive mailers" the city council did the right thing and banned the coal terminal.
How about if EBX sticks to reporting the news instead of trying to make the news?
EBX, is starting to sound a lot like that old (and defunct) Bruce Brugmann publication, Bay Guardian... A one note scream that eventually became quite ignorable.
