Re: “Mayor's Power Will Grow if Voters Approve Oakland Police Commission

The city administrator, who presently supervises and hires and fires the chief, works at the pleasure of the mayor so whoever is the mayor already has that power.
But the new commission would water down the mayor's power over control of OPD, and up until now not even federal oversight has been able to reform that department. This charter change has the potential to begin that shift towards community control and significant reform.

Re: “City Forcing West Oakland’s Alliance Metals to Close on August 20, But Supporters Argue Recyclers Have No Safety Net

To the folks complaining about MOVING INTO THIS NEIGHBORHOOD IN WEST OAKLAND and are shocked by the drug use and thefts all I can say is GO FUCKING HOME . Oakland has been and will be the city it always has been and we will put up a damn good fight before we lay down and let you gentrifying fucks take it making its completely unaffordable even to be fucking homeless . You people make me sick I hope your $600 bbq got sold for meth .

Re: “Why Does the Berkeley City Council Care About a Dog Meat Festival in China?

Probably the same reason why Indians in India might protest against Americans for eating beef.
