Re: “Darwin BondGraham, Ali Winston Win Prestigious George Polk Award For East Bay Express Series on Oakland Police Scandal

Bruce Ferrell: Who ya gonna believe, the New York Times or the Polk Awards website? Who pays their webmasters better? (I don't see it there either...)

Where is Derick Almena? This is where the anger and responsibility should be directed. Perhaps it is because people want to go after deeper pockets.

Re: “Darwin BondGraham, Ali Winston Win Prestigious George Polk Award For East Bay Express Series on Oakland Police Scandal

Reporters like BondGraham and Winston are indispensable, especially after the demise of the Oakland Tribune and the absence of beat reporters at City Hall. Democracy becomes impracticable without journalists who can devote time to researching long-form stories like theirs. What I'm wondering is, does this award come with any money?

It's now February 20 at 11am pacific. I just visited the Polk awards web site. I see no announcements for 2017 and they don't seem to appear on the 2016 lists? What's up?

Re: “Oakland Tenants Say Eviction Notices on Rise After Ghost Ship, Call on City Hall For Moratorium

Am Sherri from Texas. i just want to share my experience with everyone. I have being hearing about this blank ATM card for a while and i never really paid any interest to it because of my doubts. Until one day i discovered a hacking guy called Donard. he is really good at what he is doing. Back to the point, I inquired about The Blank ATM Card. If it works or even Exist. They told me Yes and that its a card programmed for random money withdraws without being noticed and can also be used for free online purchases of any kind. This was shocking and i still had my doubts. Then i gave it a try and asked for the card and agreed to their terms and conditions. Hoping and praying it was not a scam. 3 days later i received my card and tried with the closest ATM machine close to me, It worked like magic. I was able to withdraw up to $5000 daily. This was unbelievable and the happiest day of my life. So far i have being able to withdraw up to $30000 in one week without any stress of being caught. I dont know why i am posting this here, i just felt this might help those of us in need of financial stability. blank Atm has really change my life.

absolutely nothing negative happened as a result of days of protest.

Re: “High-Level City Staff Knew of Police Sex Crimes Months Before Oakland Mayor Says She Was Informed

"Do you crypto-anarchists really think..."

Epithet and poli sci update: the original crypto epithet was "crypto-fascist" spoken by Gore Vidal to W.F. Buckley Jr. Perfectly apt.

An anarchist is someone who doesn't believe in government, so whether or not gov't was aware of anything at all isn't really of much interest to an anarchist.

A fascist is likely to be someone who things gov't is god and, accordingly,
all-powerful and unquestionable. Something like W.F. Buckley Jr and the writer of the crypto- epithet above. Fascists or crypto-fascists.

"The city council should also be named including Desley Brooks whose district the fire was in."

Desley Brooks's Council District is #6. The Ghost Ship fire was in the Fruitvale area of Oakland which is Council District #5. Noel Gallo is Council member for that district. Gallo gives every indication of concern for the often-beset Oaklanders who live in his district.

Sounds like someone has it in for Desley Brooks. Before passing judgement based on "alternative facts," a little taste of reality might be useful. Unlike other Council members, if you call Desley's offical phone number, she is likely to answer the phone.

36 lives lost, gone. The City will be used for obvious liability. The city council should also be named including Desley Brooks whose district the fire was in. She had first hand knowledge for over five years of this potential but chose not to do ANYTHING about it, just like the rest of her district, the tent city of homeless, trash and defecation. She should be charged criminally for each and every life lost.

Re: “New Documents Reveal Oakland Officials Were Aware of Ghost Ship’s Numerous Problems: Raves, Kidnapping, Battery, Assault, And More

It took an entire City of Oakland to create this disaster. That made it difficult to cover up.

Re: “New Documents Reveal Oakland Officials Were Aware of Ghost Ship’s Numerous Problems: Raves, Kidnapping, Battery, Assault, And More

And this disaster/tragedy is EXACTLY why I'm not here for Oakland OVERLOOKING or ACCEPTING anything that is illegal. Had all facets of the City of Oakland done their part, 36 people wouldn't have died. I don't care who or what it is, the City of Oakland has got to stop tolerating this crap.

Re: “A Second Transbay Link Is Inevitable — but Will It Be Equitable?

Couple of items:

1) http://www2.oaklandnet.com/oakca1/groups/p…

Crime is hardly down. The changes aren't even one quartile different which means the average (which is higher than more populated cities) is still out of whack regarding crime.

2) Reddon, I'll just leave this for you.

Re: “Major Paint-Manufacturing Corporations Still Owe Oakland More Than $100 Million Over Lead

Yes, it is heartbreaking the misery that these corporations have caused. Some of them also produced and promoted lead pipes long after they knew of its dangers.
