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

This writer apparently has gone hook, line and sinker for the Mayor's PR campaign that choosing the right chief is the solution to Oakland's policing and public safety problems.

It's pure PR. It seems to be working because it is diverting attention from Oakland's real policing problems including improving public safety, ethics, police morale and community involvement. Community involvement with policing is not the same thing as an opinion survey.

Oakland's Police Department is entirely an appendage of city hall. City hall sets the goals, makes the policies and funds the activities of our police department. Our city hall is dominated by the same old pols who have devoted decades to maintaining the status quo, their time in office and almost nothing more.

If OPD is to change we need electeds in city hall who understand policing, comtemporary thinking about policing, the history of policing since the days of Robert Peel and, most of all, understand management and organizational change. PR alone won't do it.

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

I hope the city looks outside the police industry for a new leader. Continuing to draw from the police community means the new chief will have same cultural prejudice s that we are trying to weed out. We need new blood, new ideas and a new culture.

Re: “Oakland Activist Cat Brooks on President Trump: 'My Revolutionary Prayer'

It is so go time. Self care for the long haul of this thing - it has already been soul crushing. Reach out to others to know what personal safety issues they are having and how we can support, call & petition about Brannon, electoral college, Doug Ericksen, DAPL, counter BS on social media, be ready for our100, report hate speech and incidents, auto monthly donate to ACLU, SPLC, & others, divest, invest in and purchase only from trusted sources. Thank you.

Lorraine: The Oakland City Clerk webpage has the filing of GO Public Schools and other Super PACs that spent funding in support of the
School Board candidates mentioned in the article.

Re: “Oakland Activist Cat Brooks on President Trump: 'My Revolutionary Prayer'

I was right up there at the sound truck when we were flashed bombed and tear gassed without any provocation. There was a 9 year old boy with his mother to the left of me and a person in a wheel chair to the right of me. The tear gassing and flash bombx created a very dangerous situation for the safety of all of us as there was no where to go. I am so thankful you kept everyone calm and continued the protest. But what realky opened my eyes is that the police and media lied about this incident saying everything from bottles were th thrown to molitive cocktails. I was 2 or 3 3 people back from the line of police, none of that h as poened as you were there.

I was slso at the rally on Thursday which opened up my knowledge of so many diverse groups but I inspired me by the love and the joint effort of all these people coming together for to protect those under attact and fight what is headed our way.

I am getting involved, sharing information, contacting government officials, and trying to find an activist organization that could use my help.

My eyes are open to we what I didn't see happening and am truly scared of what is happening and where we are headed.

Cat, I love the energy, passion, knowledge and inspiration you give. You are my hero and I feel more empowered and feel the inspiration to fight and much initiated by you those first 2 days. I am not going to crawl in a ball and cry, or live in denial, I am going to strive to protect others and fight for our rights and justice.

Cat

Re: “Prop. 64 Rolls Out New Ads, No on 64 Touts Unfavorable New Poll

The words "Process" and "Processing" go undefined in Prop 64. Please FIX! Prop 64 says that it's legal to PROCESS up to 8 grams of cannabis concentrates. What does PROCESS mean?

Rob Appledorn's many comments are escalating in vitriol and have nothing to do with the mayor of Oakland.

Re: “Congresswoman Barbara Lee on President Trump: 'The Fight is Coming'

Sadly, what the GOP has shown us is poor folks don't vote. 46 million voters sat this one out and they and everyone else will pay the price.

Re: “Congresswoman Barbara Lee on President Trump: 'The Fight is Coming'

Thank you Rep. Lee. I hope you will continue your good work to preserve our pluralistic, open society in the halls of Congress. While white nationalists, ISIS, and Putin's Russia cheer the election results, the KKK and other groups plan victory parades through major cities all over the country. I hope that when they finally come to the Bay Area (and they will), you will stand with us to oppose them.

How does one go about investigating campaign contributions such as finding this info from the article? I've looked on registrar of voters but no info available. I know there's something.

Re: “Protesters Join Hands Around Lake Merritt in Oakland to Protest Trump, Hate Crimes

This is just wonderful that so many can come together in common cause. Let us see if we can continue this when trump starts doing some truly horrid deed that affects our minorities and undocumented who depend on work in America to feed and house families at home. If HRC had been elected we would have been looking at a better future certain that we would have all been looked after none forgotten. Sadly the Republcans used their dishonest ways to steal the election but the big question is now, what are they going to do? If they do what they normally do trumps supporters will march on Washington, my thoughts are that perhaps Steve Bannon will give GOP pause before they trample over our rights, not allowing them to lead Trump but letting him lead them?
