Re: “Sen. Nancy Skinner Asks Contra Costa Supervisors to Cancel $95 Million Jail Expansion

Thank you so much Senator Nancy Skinner. We need money for social services not jail expansion.

Until the non-violent offender breaks into your house and steals your belongings, then you want them locked up.

Re: “City Emails: Many Dublin Residents Think Undocumented Immigrants Are 'Felons' Who Will Turn Their Town Into a 'Cesspool'

Sounds like the residents of Dublin have drank in the extremist, alt right, Fox New, Brietbart, white panic propaganda from the Trump Regime. I fear more from the white extremists, zealots, Trumpsters and gun nut Oathkeepers than from any illegal immigrant. Funny how they don't seem concerned about the murders and violence these racists are committing!
Thanks for giving me yet another reason to laugh at the ugly suburban sprawl joke that is Dublin!

Re: “Nyum Bai Wants to Expand Your Vocabulary of Asian Noodle Soups

I was all excited about this place, but the use of Maggi seasoning means that there is MSG in the food which strikes it off my list. I get migraines from MSG and it also typically means that the food is not good quality enough to stand on it's own without flavor enhancers. Oh well....

Re: “Barbara Blaser Didn't Try Cannabis Until Her Seventies. Now, She's A Registered Nurse At An Oakland Dispensary.

This lady is amazing! In just 2 conversations she made me a better person, a better parent and a better paraprofessional! That was in 1990's and has stayed with me all these years!

Re: “City Of Oakland's Top Budget Expert Says Trump's Threat To $130 Million in Federal Funding 'Should Not Be Taken Lightly'

Oh no....tomatoes cost more. Yes, let's spend billions of dollars for people who lie, cheat, and steal to be here.

There are millions of people who spent tons of money and time to be here the right way.

They need to hunt her down and start a war in Berkeley. If you will let her views and act violent to others I can't wait for that school to fall.

Re: “City Of Oakland's Top Budget Expert Says Trump's Threat To $130 Million in Federal Funding 'Should Not Be Taken Lightly'

Nobody is OK with crazy anyone roaming the streets! It is a complete exaggeration to place the blame of 'craziness on the streets' on people who are not here legally!!! That is right-wing BS!!! Get rid of people who are here illegally---watch the price of that tomato on your table go up a $1.00!! So sad that right-wing, heartless morons don't get that!

Re: “Oakland Officials Want to Ban Flavored Blunt Wrappers, Two-Pack Cigars, And Vape Juice

Oakland council members need to focus their efforts on a lot of others things besides tobacco and vaping. And how about enforcing the laws and consequences already on the books. Fining. Revoking business licenses. Etc.

Re: “AC Transit to Cancel Supplemental OUSD School Bus Routes

I suspect terminating some buses to some public schools (while, outrageously, providing bus service to private schools -- how can this be legal? Seems like the Civil Rights Act comes to bear on this) is really about gentrification. The poor kid families are supposed to leave Oakland so more rich folks can move in. Then the buses will return. And the schools themselves will improve.

Re: “Sen. Nancy Skinner Asks Contra Costa Supervisors to Cancel $95 Million Jail Expansion

Mental health services are needed both in the community and the jail, but 32 "mental health jail beds" are not required to provide such services. On the contrary, spending more money on incarceration means less fo spend on mental health professionals and other important services. If CCC would stop profiting on human suffering by ending the disgraceful ICE contract, there would be more than enough jail capacity required for to ensure public safety. Incarceration for any other reason is unacceptable.

Re: “In Praise of Oakland’s Koreana Plaza

"that part of Tele has those stupid bike lanes so it drags through there"

Amen, preach it! Used to be that you could blow through there at 20 miles above the posted speed limit. Now cars have to sometimes obey the law for a few blocks...it's ridiculous. Now the walk/bike fanatics are trying to extend it to other streets, too:

Law Enforcement budgets and actions must be spent protecting Citizens from VIOLENT OFFENDERS vs. non violent offenders.

Re: “Hayward Police Chief: There Is No Video of Fatal Police Shooting of 16-Year-Old Elena Mondragon

A Suspects vehicle assaulting a Cops vehicle has the same ~intent~ as a Suspects fist assaulting a Cops face. Both assaults justify prison, neither justify deadly force. Cops pitting their 100-300lbs flesh & bone against a Suspect vehicles 3,000-6,000lbs of steel are just ~GAMING OFFICER SAFETY~ to justify opening fire on a TARGET RICH ENVIRONMENT.

Re: “Hayward Police Chief: There Is No Video of Fatal Police Shooting of 16-Year-Old Elena Mondragon

Let's see how many barbarians come out to applaud and to justify the shooting of a unarmed, pregnant child by armed and trained agents of the state. Some things never change. Back during the days of jim crow, cops regularly committed atrocities against unarmed black people of all ages and both genders and were excused and lauded for it. After all they were Just thugs doing white society's dirty work for a paycheck and a pension. But remember, the real problem is those crazy North Koreans and ISIL not our own culture of blanket police impunity and it's evil twin the ever expanding surveillance state.

Re: “Sen. Nancy Skinner Asks Contra Costa Supervisors to Cancel $95 Million Jail Expansion

Thank you Senator Skinner! We need more leadership like this!
#ServicesNotCells!
Contra Costa County residents need youth services, social services, health care and mental health services, not jails.
