Re: “I Was Kicked Out of Federal Immigration Court — Because I'm a Journalist

Wow. And it will probably only get worse.

If people have a right to a closed hearing, then it seems like the judge should ask them before the proceedings begin, and take appropriate action. Other than that, the public should have the right to observe.

Re: “I Was Kicked Out of Federal Immigration Court — Because I'm a Journalist

Thanks. I went to one in Arizona and they heard the cases with 30-50 people
"defendants" at a time. It was insane. They had no translation, and would enter their pleas en masse as "guilty." It was astonishing. That said, this was under Obama. I would hate to see what it's going to be like under Trump.

Agreed. Thank you for your work. I hope more journalist's will flood the immigration court's and report about ICE actions and procedures.

Keep up the good work, and consider whether you need legal assistance to preserve a free press.

Re: “New Documents Reveal Oakland Officials Were Aware of Ghost Ship’s Numerous Problems: Raves, Kidnapping, Battery, Assault, And More

And this disaster/tragedy is EXACTLY why I'm not here for Oakland OVERLOOKING or ACCEPTING anything that is illegal. Had all facets of the City of Oakland done their part, 36 people wouldn't have died. I don't care who or what it is, the City of Oakland has got to stop tolerating this crap.

Re: “A Second Transbay Link Is Inevitable — but Will It Be Equitable?

Couple of items:

1) http://www2.oaklandnet.com/oakca1/groups/p…

Crime is hardly down. The changes aren't even one quartile different which means the average (which is higher than more populated cities) is still out of whack regarding crime.

2) Reddon, I'll just leave this for you.

Re: “Major Paint-Manufacturing Corporations Still Owe Oakland More Than $100 Million Over Lead

Yes, it is heartbreaking the misery that these corporations have caused. Some of them also produced and promoted lead pipes long after they knew of its dangers.

Re: “A Second Transbay Link Is Inevitable — but Will It Be Equitable?

So Reddon, your contention is that because people in Blue shoot people needlessly, the kids shot through the walls of their home, in their beds, count less than the ones shot by blue bullets...

The teens shot sitting in a car in front of their houses, in their own neighborhoods count less.

Nice.

I'm not saying the blue shooters are right. I'm saying they've been handed and easy out. By the system and by clowns running the streets blasting away in broad daylight... And no one knows anything. We're tough. We're Oakland. We don't snitch.

As I said, all VERY lawful.

Re: “A Second Transbay Link Is Inevitable — but Will It Be Equitable?

I'm so tired of the likes of the Bay Area Council and SPUR, acting like they represent the residents of the Bay Area. They don't. One is a business advocacy group and the other has an activist urbanism agenda. Thank these guys for Plan Bay Area, and the movement to regional taxation and unelected regulators making choices for us.

Re: “Downtown Berkeley

Hello guys. At the risk of sounding too promotional, I would like to recommend an alternate computer store. I have been consistently using the services from http://macrepairberkeley.com/">Mac Repair Berkeley and they have been really amazing! Compared to the service linked in the above list, the prices are quite lower and the services are top-notch.

My business partners needed to fill out CA CDPH 0929 some time ago and came across a document management site that hosts a huge forms library . If people are searching for CA CDPH 0929 too , here's https://goo.gl/XCS41J

Re: “A Second Transbay Link Is Inevitable — but Will It Be Equitable?

Yes, Bruce F., it does matter who does the shooting. Reason: several white shooters like Zimmerman have gotten off by claiming that the confrontation with a black man put them in fear of their life -- the legal standard, especially for policemen. Inconceivable a black person could get away with this.
