Re: “Was Operator of Oakland Warehouse Fire Venue 'Warned' of Safety Issues, 'Illegal' Construction, Danger?

I'm in shock, I'm so sorry everyone. I stayed away from satya yuga because of a violent incident I had there a couple years ago and was forced to watch my community to coexist with them despite my warnings and police report. A lot of people are asking if i was there.. I wouldn't have been there if they paid me. My heart is pouring for the lives that are lost and pray for their justice.

Re: “Was Operator of Oakland Warehouse Fire Venue 'Warned' of Safety Issues, 'Illegal' Construction, Danger?

He was warned. I used to live there. Micah hiscwife and he are fucking crimanals and now murderers. That place was a hell hole and death trap with massive housing and fire code violations illegal electrical hook ups and heat intermittently. Not for for humans but they keep their kids there without coats n shoes in freezing weather. Eating randomly. Exposed to all kinds of criminal fucked up shit. They knew about the violations, lied and stole from tenants to get $$$ improvements spent in drugs. Had their kids taken away because of it. Gun play and police regularly. Stolen merchandise always. Took them to buy groceries that stole hats n chocolate. Fuck Derik and Micah they deserve the same thing the dead got and their kids deserve better. The dead deserved better. And people on here worried about them and their shit lives. Fuck them.

Re: “Oaklanders: Next Police Chief Needs to 'Clear Out Bad Apples'

P. Stokes: "The writer is reporting on the results of a survey, not advocating any particular approach."

The survey is, in itself, an approach to solving the problem of reforming or reorganizing OPD. A thoughtful writer might simply make the point that there could be (I would say should be) other approaches.

As you put it "Who would want the job?" Clearly the Oakland Mayor doesn't want the job of reforming or reorganizing OPD so she decides to pass the chore on to yet another chief. A chief who will come and go and thus there will be no change.

Re: “Alameda Health System Leaders Say Hospitals Are 'Safe Spaces' for Undocumented Immigrants

Jason Matthews,

If you're implying that U.S. healthcare is expensive because of services used by undocumented immigrants, than you're incorrect.

The drivers of healthcare costs are many (http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/health…) and the U.S. is more expensive than comparable OECD nations. But it's not because of undocumented immigrants or healthcare services like Medicaid.

Re: “Oakland Ethics Commissioner Accuses Officials of Abusing Access to Free Warriors and Raiders Tickets

This is nothing more than a perk that politicians can use to gain favor or strengthen relationships with people they want on their "team". Why don't they just call it what it is? To even assert that Larry Reid or anybody else spends his or her time at Oracle arena observing stadium operations is intellectually dishonest and downright absurd.

Re: “Oaklanders: Next Police Chief Needs to 'Clear Out Bad Apples'

Mr. Johnson,
Unless I misunderstand, the writer is reporting on the results of a survey, not advocating any particular approach. What combination of Gandhi and Patton would you like to see here in this age of police militarization, hyper-surveillance, unaffordable housing and progressive/wealthy population that is currently in place in Oakland? This is a multi-layered issued; for instance, the Oakland police have been operating under court order for how many years now - 13 (http://www.mercurynews.com)?

Who would want the job?

Re: “Lawyers Guild Decries Oakland Police's 'Brutal' Tactics Against Trump Protesters

Cat, the vast majority of Oaklanders are with you in your efforts, but disgusted by your passive attitude about collateral damage. I've seen anarchists injury innocent people. It's hard to reconcile empathy for the oppressed while making victims of innocent residents, business owners and their employees. There is a tsunami of voices building that wants the obstruction of downtown streets and destruction of property to come to an end. It's been going on for over SIX years. OPD reported over 180 protest events and record breaking overtime pay in 2015. Oaklanders overwhelmingly supported progressive measures and political leaders in our most recent election -we should not be injuring our local community.

Re: “Oakland Officials Describe Vandalism After Anti-Donald Trump Rally As Some Of Worst They've Seen

@Rob Appeldorn: why would anyone protest in Oakland when Obama was elected? They celebrated. But white Republicans most definitely did violenty protest Obama in red states. They lynched Obama in effigy, they called him the "N****r president", they burned signs of him, some KKK people protested in their robes, NC State Univ. students spray-painting "Let's shoot that N****r in the head" and "Hang Obama by a noose." I guess you conveniently forgot their racist hatred, violence and property damage.
