Re: “Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson Hit in Face with Pie at Event, Assaults Protester in 'Bloody' Scene

They guy gets a pie in the face and that gives him The right to bear the crap out of the protester? A pie in the face doesn't equal 12 punches. I'm sorry it doesn't, then again one of our presidential candidates is trump..

Anyone who assaults a public official should be prepared to pay the price. In this case you might get a bloody nose.

Good on the Mayor. Anyone can say something, but this "Protestor" attacked him, and that was not a wise move.

Re: “Plan Would Require City of Oakland To Be Part Owner of Any New Marijuana Business

This cannot stand. Seriously, Oakland, you'll make plenty of money, but don't do it this way proposed. Twenty-five percent ownership and a board seat, please. I counter with 2% and a non-voting board member.

Thank you, Ms. Lacabe, for that link and for your analysis of this proposal. Excellent points.

Re: “Sex Worker Advocates Say Oakland's ReportJohn.org Prostitution Snitch Web Site Does More Harm Than Good

Is this even legal? Don't you need proof of solicitation? The potential for abuse and false claims seems high, and there doesn't appear to be any way to determine that solicitation has in fact happened. John stings usually involve decoys who can arrest once money is offered for sex. But this program has civil rights red flags all over it, since observers will probably not be in a position to hear verbal exchanges, and even then it would be hearsay. i get that Oakland is the #2 place for sex trafficking in the country, and OPD is understaffed, but did Schaaf and O'Malley just come up with this on their own, without CSEC orgs co-signing? And the timing seems a little convenient, considering that just last week, O'Malley held a press conference to announce she was filing charges in the police sex scandal which actually couldnt be filed because of witness tampering by the police. This article does a decent job of pointing out that the program could endanger women, and it's clear we need better solutions, such as a way to target more pimps, not to mention a top to bottom, thorough scouring of police predators who exploit sex workers. Guap surely cant be the only minor who has had intimate encounters with OPD and other departments. If we cant rely on the police to uphold the law and public safety, now we are supposed to put our trust in anonymous snitches? I can smell the lawsuits already...

Re: “Thirteen Unlucky Observations from Oakland Raiders Disappointing Home Loss to Atlanta

As bad as our Defence played (typical zone coverage that is wait till they catch then Try to tackle) the real problem that has to be addressed is the officiating of bad or lack of good calls that are game changers. Is it just me or are we playing against the NFL!

AL is dead... Leave us play.

Re: “Thirteen Unlucky Observations from Oakland Raiders Disappointing Home Loss to Atlanta

Another ref cannot look at the game and see that Amari Cooper was pushed out it was an illegal contact so that is why he went out of bounds so the place should have stand instead the referees screwed up and I can see his butt from a hole in the ground the referees should be fine just like the players when they make bad calls they should have to pay for it or even if they have reviews of it you should be able to review that

Re: “Thirteen Unlucky Observations from Oakland Raiders Disappointing Home Loss to Atlanta

JDR is in a unique position. He must realize that Norton Jr is not cutting it AT ALL. And Musgrave is doing the same thing he did last year in being WAY TOO DAMN CONSERVATIVE.
Again, the entire first half was a bunch of runs through the guards and dink passes. He didn't call one pass beyond the sticks until the second half!
On third and 9, Carr would pass to a RB or WR who was 3 or 4 yards dowfield!
Just like last year, he NEVER attempts to stretch the defense! Thus, hardly any points in the first half! Just like last year!
Its only when they are behind does he call for Cooper or Crabtree to make long grabs!

I'm so sick of it. We'll be around 4- 7 before Del Rio or Davis decides to scrap our OC and DC and start over. Just watch.....

Re: “Thirteen Unlucky Observations from Oakland Raiders Disappointing Home Loss to Atlanta

Ken Norton Jr. needs to figure this out soon. Offense is on track, I believe. Defense needs to be fixed and if KNJ doesn't do it soon, he'll follow Greg Roman to the unemployment line. 69 points allowed in the first two games? That's sickening. Maybe a change in the scheme is necessary. Plus, the special teams didn't take care of business too well either.

Re: “Thirteen Unlucky Observations from Oakland Raiders Disappointing Home Loss to Atlanta

Yes. We have a pretty good QB and some offensive weapons, however, the play calling is horrible. Musgrave is horrible in first half. Conservative play does NOT play to this team a strengths.

As to the D, To say this is a personnel issue doesn't take into account that our D on paper, was worse, much worse, last year, yet this D is absolutely horrific. Even money says KNJ doesn't last another 8 days. No way to "fix" this D in a week. So, he'll get fired, nothing will change and Raiders fans will take it in the A, again. He and my team are screwed. Thanks Raiders management for just another major F up. It's ok though, we are SO used to it!

Re: “Thirteen Unlucky Observations from Oakland Raiders Disappointing Home Loss to Atlanta

The Raiders give up 1,000 yards and 69 points to the other team in 2 games. I don't care how good your offense is, if you have to score 40 points a game to win, you will not be successful. Clearly Cooper was pushed out of bounds, but then the Raiders never get those kind of calls. What was more clear was that the Raider linebackers are terrible. In particular, Heeney (No 50) seems to have brought back the ghost of Greg Biekert as the proverbial leak in the wall. The opponents game plan has been to run at him and throw the ball in his area. There is no Raider pass rush and the defensive backs again seem confused half the time. What is really obvious is how valuable Charles Woodson was during the last 2 years. C. Wood made sure they were in the correct alignments and made many tackles in an area of the field where linebackers are supposed to rule. I do not see the players on the roster right now to get it fixed. The linebackers are too small to take on blocks and make tackles between the tackles, which allows the other team positive yardage on first down. That makes for maximum flexibility to run or pass on second down and short yardage. That is a death sentence for a defense. Both Del Rio and the defensive coordinator, Ken Norton, were better than average linebackers in their NFL careers. I do not know how they did not see this coming?
