Re: “Ambushed: Contra Costa County Law Enforcement Sets Up Surprise Stings To Help Federal Immigration Agents Arrest and Deport Immigrants

Its a shame because its not about this case its about other illegal immigrants they come here to work hard ,it be unthinkable of many of you doing the hard work these people do you won't do it ,its more your profile of illegal immigrants is incorrect , just because a few have committed crimes ,,we're a country of equal opportunity and justice for all ,,EQUALITY HM

Re: “Ambushed: Contra Costa County Law Enforcement Sets Up Surprise Stings To Help Federal Immigration Agents Arrest and Deport Immigrants

The premise of this article is so flawed, it defies description. It promotes the concept that illegal immigrants who have committed crimes are somehow "sacred cows" with higher rights than actual U.S. citizens. It implies that cooperation among law enforcement agencies to rid this country of such criminals is a crime. Kim, for example, was given his chance when pardoned after his conviction of a Georgia hold-up - and then he did another crime! He had better learn Korean, because that is where he should immediately be deported to. The reporter has made the case for just such law enforcement agency cooperation - no matter how many tears this article might precipitate from liberals who refuse to respect the personal consequences of law and order.

Im 62 yrs old woman and I grew up in Brentwood and its always been races ,big racial devisions ,and sadly to say some latinos grow up with out knowing their roots not knowing there own heritage language, because of shame off having farmers background ,been in poverty-poor or from Mixico etc. but those because of shame they lost themselfs because they'll never be excepted no matter what they do ,no roots ,no knowledge of self ,can speak or communicate in there own language ,but eating tortilla with peanut butter /coloring there hair blond ,but when you look in mirror you won't like your skin color or who you see in the mirror, the mirror tells how it is I'm sad to say , I went there to all their schools from elementary to high school,

Seems like Contra Costa is motivated by greed and malicious dislike of immigrants (particularly brown immigrants). It's so easy to ignore ICE. Every other Bay Area county does. Something is rotting in Contra Costa.

All Law Enforcement Should Aide ICE in deporting Criminal Illegal Aliens who do not have a legal or moral right to be in the U.S . The U.S does not have open borders and will not allow these criminals to roam free.

Contra Costa County needs to elect new leadership. It's time to clean house in order to promote our progressive values.

Re: “Ambushed: Contra Costa County Law Enforcement Sets Up Surprise Stings To Help Federal Immigration Agents Arrest and Deport Immigrants

Are you kidding me? Lets follow the facts: Kim commits a violent armed robbery. But thats not all. He is here illegally and then goes on to commit other crimes like possessing stolen property. David Jones had to cope with stress and had FOUR DUIs while here illegally. Are you kidding me? He could have killed someone. And then, the last sad victim of this story is Smith, who, guess what, committed a crime while here illegally too, Domestic Violence! What am I missing? If the Probation Chief and the Sheriffs Office didnt hand them immediately to ICE they would be guilty of incompetence. The Public Defender cannot possibly defend this nonsense. Maybe the author is hoping to win a Pulitzer prize on this ridiculous article. The only thing he proved is that the Trump Administration needs to bring the hammer down hard and now. You provided three great examples of why!

Re: “My Afternoon With E-40: A Day in the Life of the Bay Area's Most Prolific and Respected Rapper

@Anthony Moore Who cares where he filmed the video -- it glorifies reckless driving and promoted "hyphy" as an Oakland cultural expression, on our streets where we have to drive, too. It was especially shameful that Youth UpRising steered impressionable youth the wrong way when YU put its members into that video. But then, E-40 lives in a gated development in Danville.

@Charlie Pine... I think the video you are referring to was filmed on a closed lot at the old 7th Street Train station.

Omitted from this puff piece: Youth Uprising, a City-sponsored agency, brokered its youth members to E-40 for a rap video that praised reckless driving on Oakland streets ("hyphy").

Re: “The High Costs of Outsourcing Police

In the mist of all the problems. Oakland safe street has become a haven for gang stalking. The residents its supposed to protect from these thugs.

Re: “Grinches of the Year: Oakland and East Bay Residents with Hearts a Few Sizes Too Small

Mr. Eroster, as I'm sure someone as educated and worldly as you knows, painting people whom you don't know personally with such a broad and belittling brush is not often helpful nor true. Brings to mind "stereotype" and "inflammatory". What change are you hoping to impart by your words? Pointing out the problem is easy, but to suggest realistic solutions? That would be genius and that's what the world and Oakland need now more than ever.

Re: “Oakland Firefighters Say Their Department Is So Badly Managed, Ghost Ship Warehouse Wasn't Even In Its Inspection Database

When a fire chief assertively states that the department does not inspect vacant buildings then you know she is grossly incompetent. Vacant warehouses catch fire on a regular basis. Maybe that's their plan. Urban renewal by strategic fire to remove vacant warehouses. The Ghost Ship warehouse and that block of property is on an Oakland city planning proposal for commercial development. (SF Chronicle)
Maybe the Oakland city government could benefit from a federal investigation for civil rights violations of those killed due to deliberate negligence. The city officials are certainly concealing evidence.

Re: “Grinches of the Year: Oakland and East Bay Residents with Hearts a Few Sizes Too Small

Oh, they're not just deified but saints and martyrs...crucified upon a cross of rising Oakland housing costs...let us give them all saintly names and titles!

Our Lady Of Not Born A Lady But Don't You Dare Mis-Gender Her.

Saint Francis Of Two Turntables And A Microphone, patron saint of all who have no known day job but somehow can party right before college finals.

Blessed And Holy Infant Of Infantile Lifestyle Habits.

Just yesterday I read if a genuine miracle as writing appeared on a wall!!!
