Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
Thing about the past and living an improper life it is gives one a chance to champion those behaviors and lead a proper life. Those who have remained improper will remain in the past with those behaviors and accursed of all those who have changed.
Kevin Johnson should be in prison for sexual abusing a teenager but just like your beloved cops public officials always gets away with crime committed.
Karma will eventually bust mofo Kevin Johnson in the face.
All right by me. Disrupting a community, non-political event, assaulting the mayor? Need to discourage this type of behavior. Good job, Mr Mayor.
Mayor was hit first & then verbally disrespected or abused perhaps, thus he had a right to defend himself. Did he go too far, I don't know. The person is still alive & has no broken limbs or broken bones right? If u step like a man & step up to another man like this person did, well, then he got treated like a man!
I've got a pie for you. Let's discuss what a proper response is to being assaulted.
Pie to the face aint shit homie, if they did that to one of the vatos be more then blood shed be getting jumped and head smashed like pimpkin . The mayor went easy for a public disrespect street charge
They guy gets a pie in the face and that gives him The right to bear the crap out of the protester? A pie in the face doesn't equal 12 punches. I'm sorry it doesn't, then again one of our presidential candidates is trump..
Anyone who assaults a public official should be prepared to pay the price. In this case you might get a bloody nose.
Good on the Mayor. Anyone can say something, but this "Protestor" attacked him, and that was not a wise move.
Welcome to the farm to fist capitol!
The face of Sacramento, covered in a cream pie.
That's my mayor!
This cannot stand. Seriously, Oakland, you'll make plenty of money, but don't do it this way proposed. Twenty-five percent ownership and a board seat, please. I counter with 2% and a non-voting board member.
Thank you, Ms. Lacabe, for that link and for your analysis of this proposal. Excellent points.
Is this even legal? Don't you need proof of solicitation? The potential for abuse and false claims seems high, and there doesn't appear to be any way to determine that solicitation has in fact happened. John stings usually involve decoys who can arrest once money is offered for sex. But this program has civil rights red flags all over it, since observers will probably not be in a position to hear verbal exchanges, and even then it would be hearsay. i get that Oakland is the #2 place for sex trafficking in the country, and OPD is understaffed, but did Schaaf and O'Malley just come up with this on their own, without CSEC orgs co-signing? And the timing seems a little convenient, considering that just last week, O'Malley held a press conference to announce she was filing charges in the police sex scandal which actually couldnt be filed because of witness tampering by the police. This article does a decent job of pointing out that the program could endanger women, and it's clear we need better solutions, such as a way to target more pimps, not to mention a top to bottom, thorough scouring of police predators who exploit sex workers. Guap surely cant be the only minor who has had intimate encounters with OPD and other departments. If we cant rely on the police to uphold the law and public safety, now we are supposed to put our trust in anonymous snitches? I can smell the lawsuits already...
Here is my take on this program:
typical redneck city council...greedy illegal, oakland> no nazi germany..fk off oakland or your sins will come back to you.
As bad as our Defence played (typical zone coverage that is wait till they catch then Try to tackle) the real problem that has to be addressed is the officiating of bad or lack of good calls that are game changers. Is it just me or are we playing against the NFL!
AL is dead... Leave us play.
