Re: “Oakland Fire Department Hits Hills Homeowners With Erroneous Inspection Bills

I am just gonna drop a line saying that if you wish to get detailed data about Oakland and support it with numbers then you should take a peek here:
although I am not sure they have fire safety statistics but maybe I didn't dig deep enough. Anyways I second Mr Hall in that matter.

Re: “Golden Road Brewing's Meg Gill Visits Oakland To Defend Controversial Plan To Open Beer Garden

Ms. Gill, you can't claim to be independent if you aren't. Calling you out isn't "fake news." You sound like an Orange Cheeto follower. And pleeeease, no one is criticizing you because you're a businesswoman (really??). No one wants Bud Lite disguised as an IPA. No one wants drunken, overgrown frat boys pissing in a residential neighborhood. No one wants the increase in traffic and the loss of street parking. No one wants your corporate controlled beer. We like and support LOCAL craft brewers.

Police don't think. Muslims are the problem. How many times do I have to say that?

Re: “Alameda Sheriff Deputy's Arrest of Street Fruit Vendor Goes Viral and Draws Criticism

I would be pissed off if someone sold fruit in front of my home. Don't blame the caller for reaching out to get him moved. And if he won't willingly comply than an arrest is warranted

Re: “An Oakland Film Series Examines the Black Aesthetic

Hey, I'm Ryanaustin (Curator) and there should be two corrections to the piece.

1. We did not screen Watermelon Woman, instead we screened the shorts of Cecile Emeke

2. The Directors name for Day by Day is Jehnovah not "Jehovah"

This is rich. A neighborhood full of gentrification doesn't like another entity coming in and gentrifying them.

Make Oakland Now! actually suspended its support for this measure before it went to the Finance & Management and Public Safety Committees, so advising both Public Safety and Council before its meeting last night.

Re: “Oakland Officials Are Divided Over a Proposal to Create a New Department of Violence Prevention

What? Another commission/ department to "study"an urgent problem? Perhaps energy and resources could be better utilized in making a serious attempt to get to the root of violent crime. Forming departments is taking the road of least resistence.

Re: “Oakland Officials Are Divided Over a Proposal to Create a New Department of Violence Prevention

While Oakland has one of the highest per capita violence rate in the country and something needs to be done, has this been done anyplace else? Is there any evidence that additional bureaucracy will be a solution or is this just theater to facilitate feeding money to council members pet projects.

We certainly need to stop the bullets flying.

Re: “Oakland Officials Are Divided Over a Proposal to Create a New Department of Violence Prevention

Wait, what?

"citing the need for more evidence that the existing programs arent working..."

If Oakland has one of the highest violence and homicide rates in the nation, isn't that prima facie evidence that existing programs aren't working?

Re: “Oakland Fire Department Hits Hills Homeowners With Erroneous Inspection Bills


I am not sure what a "bread and circuses mentality" is but I think I understand your difficulty in accepting any perspective which may differ from your own. I think the common term for what you are doing is "trolling."

I haven't made any claim regarding my expertise in fire prevention.

I live in a neighborhood which is subject to Fire Department inspections. I know my neighbors and their houses well. For many years I have read and understood the standards for landscape managment as stated in the flier which is distributed
to residents of my neighborhood and other such neighborhoods vulnerable to wildfire.

There is not a single house, among more than 100 nearby houses, which meets the standards defined in the flier. None is even close. Although I cut back my trees and shrubs each year, I don't meet the standards. My inspections each year invariably pass.

Thus this observation: the current system doesn't work. If the flier is to be taken at face value, houses in my neighborhood are quite vulnerable to wildfire. I am quite sure the situation is the same in other neighborhoods in and adjacent to the hills. Residents do not want to remove all the trees and shrubs which are close to one another and close to their houses.

Thus I suggest a redo of the wildfire policy. I do not have the answer and I think a committee of wildfire professionals could possibly come up with a more feasible plan which actually might provide some wildfire protection where the current policy does not.

You have a very hard head Mr. Troll. I hope that some other readers, perhaps some in city hall, will find my suggestions helpful.

Re: “FBI Hid Surveillance Devices Around Alameda County Courthouse

This is the way the court step auctions always have worked. Bidders agree with each other "Don't drive the price up on me for the property I really want and I won't drive the price up on the property that you really want."
Seams completely reasonable.

Re: “Alameda Sheriff Deputy's Arrest of Street Fruit Vendor Goes Viral and Draws Criticism

Look, I have several of these people in my neighborhood. I view them as an asset... Fruit stand right there on the corner.

But I also ponder, how does she stay stocked? I've seen a fruit truck drop off a load to restock. Where does she come from... Is she labor trafficked? No way to tell and she's not selling sex so no one will ever look into it. I've seen her there when I left in the morning with a small kid... She and the kid are still there when I get home twelve hours later. WTF! That has to be hellish for her AND the kid. At five dollars a bag, how can she possibly be making a living... Only as a part of something much bigger. Wait... she never charged me sales tax. Something bigger, organized (possibly a human traffickers) uses her and her kid as a front to operate a business that neither collects or submits sales tax. And that was a BIG truck. A lot of fruit on it. And I'm betting the bigger thing relies on community outrage over enforcement to fly under the radar.

Hmmm... It MAY not quite so simple and harmless as it looks, eh?

That's ok... Now you feel good. You protected the little guy... While allowing the big, hidden something to thrive at their expense.

Re: “Trial Begins for East Bay Landlord Accused of Rigging Foreclosure Auctions

This A$$hole did this to me, I ended up taking him to court. He commited perjury in small claims court, but the judge asked me just to take the check instead.

He filed multiple illegal evictions against me and tried to harass me to move out.

Re: “Alameda Sheriff Deputy's Arrest of Street Fruit Vendor Goes Viral and Draws Criticism

The police respond to complaints. They are supposed to. No reason to blame them for this when it was us. We operate a non-profit that defends the rights and resources of native born californians. the majority has passed laws to require permits to sell food, and when someone violates those laws they compete unfairly against the people who live and work in this area who do follow the laws. We made the complaint. Blame us if you like, We do not blush or shrink from our task. Serving our constituents is our job.
We are Save Our State, and we make complaints about similar activities every week to serve our community. The police are obligated to respond. Normally it would be the health department, but they are not equipped to confront often hostile people who work under the table. So they pass the job to the cops.
If anyone else needs help with unlicensed, unlawful foreign competition in their communities in this state, we are here to help you
