Re: “Community and Labor Groups Say Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf Has Stacked the Planning Commission with Real Estate Industry Reps

I'm not too sure where else developers or architects (landscape included) tend to work BUT in the that industry.

Again, a half written, innuendo laden partisan smear; without even a pretense of solutions. Just "you did it wrong!!!!!"

Why even bother to have the pretense of a Planning Commission?

Glad to see a wide spectrum of people there! From far left to far left without going through the middle. LOL. Chavez Yoelle is the only one who might be moderate.

Re: “Meet the Selection Panel that will Appoint the Members of Oakland's New Police Commission

I'm curious--are the panel members paid by the City of Oakland? Or is this a volunteer role? // julia allen, oakland

Re: “Sen. Nancy Skinner Asks Contra Costa Supervisors to Cancel $95 Million Jail Expansion

We need more money for early childhood education and later for rehabilitation and diversion into programs like Kamala Harris's Clean Slate Program which saved San Francisco about $250,000 per first time offender. This program made them plead guilty first and then gave them a 5-year intervention with H.S. diploma mandatory, job training, a job, affordable housing, Psych services, parenting classes and so on and if they stayed clean for 5 years and didn't reoffend -- aged out of crime -- then their slate was wiped clean. We need more creative programs to grab these first time, young, non-violent offenders and help them get an American dream life, with housing and families and jobs and at least H.S.education with job training. That's the Compassionate Solution and it saves money.

Re: “City Emails: Many Dublin Residents Think Undocumented Immigrants Are 'Felons' Who Will Turn Their Town Into a 'Cesspool'

Dublin City Council could have chosen another word like SAFE HAVEN to "make undocumented members of the community feel comfortable contacting the police, sending their kids to school, or seeking care at a hospital"

Dublin, do you really want the children of your housekeeper and lawn man and guy doing your remodel to live in fear that Dublin is trying to deport their parents and they will be gone when the kids come home from school? Do you really want the police rounding up the Berkeley PhD graduate student whose parents brought her here at 6 months of age to be deported? There is great hypocrisy surrounding this issue.

Many of these immigrants having been living here for decades. They didn't just run across the border. We let them do our menial labor for wages no one else would accept, but we want them also to live in fear? USA is their home. We need reasonable paths to citizenship for our neighbors and friends in the immigrant community, not deportation from the only lives they know.

It seems Oakland city government isn't the only ones with a case of the spring time stupids:

Maybe it's too much 420?

Re: “One Farmer Chose To Set Up His Market Stand During The Violent 'Battle of Berkeley'

As long as papers and authors like the one posting this tripe continue to advocate for antifa and other violent Trotskyites who explictly seek the violent and murderous overthrow of the US government, what you can expect?

East Bay Express comments turning into a maelstrom of right-wing talking points. Sad!

Thank you so much Senator Nancy Skinner. We need money for social services not jail expansion.

Until the non-violent offender breaks into your house and steals your belongings, then you want them locked up.

Re: “City Emails: Many Dublin Residents Think Undocumented Immigrants Are 'Felons' Who Will Turn Their Town Into a 'Cesspool'

Sounds like the residents of Dublin have drank in the extremist, alt right, Fox New, Brietbart, white panic propaganda from the Trump Regime. I fear more from the white extremists, zealots, Trumpsters and gun nut Oathkeepers than from any illegal immigrant. Funny how they don't seem concerned about the murders and violence these racists are committing!
Thanks for giving me yet another reason to laugh at the ugly suburban sprawl joke that is Dublin!

Oh no....tomatoes cost more. Yes, let's spend billions of dollars for people who lie, cheat, and steal to be here.

There are millions of people who spent tons of money and time to be here the right way.

Nobody is OK with crazy anyone roaming the streets! It is a complete exaggeration to place the blame of 'craziness on the streets' on people who are not here legally!!! That is right-wing BS!!! Get rid of people who are here illegally---watch the price of that tomato on your table go up a $1.00!! So sad that right-wing, heartless morons don't get that!

Re: “Oakland Officials Want to Ban Flavored Blunt Wrappers, Two-Pack Cigars, And Vape Juice

Oakland council members need to focus their efforts on a lot of others things besides tobacco and vaping. And how about enforcing the laws and consequences already on the books. Fining. Revoking business licenses. Etc.
