Re: “New Oakland-Made Saurkraut Takes Shots at Uber, Mayor

Ahh Luke. We send you so many positive press releases about our youth programs, our work to distribute food grown at Castlemont High School, our Double EBT work and you just love to write about controversial things. Did you highlight our kraut that pays for fruit trees to planted in Southern Madagascar by a sister collective? Or that the products contain produce grown by youth and small farmers of color? How about posting a link to our sites to buy our youth products to help us employee youth. Nope, how sad :(

Re: “Daily Planet Stung By Alleged Fraud

Mr. Norgren, the wanted tax fraud scoundrel, has been arrested by the US Attorneys office in the PI and has been extradited to the US. He now awaits a court hearing in Federal Court under Judge Ryo on July 5, 2016 in Oakland, CA . For more information contact Special Agent Andres Gonzales at the IRS. Finally he's been nabbed and awaits justice.

Re: “How the Oakland Police Department Worked to Cover-Up Sex Crimes and a Home Invasion Committed by Cops

If you read the Federal Monitors reports through the years, you will find numerous criticisms of OPD Internal Affairs poor and biased work product. For years I have referred to IA as a civilian complaint laundromat and as to internal investigations, an "Officer Justification Unit". For years , it has been apparent to me that for the entire term of the NSA, rank and file officers have resisted complying with the NSA's edicts and reforms. Now we know that resistance extends also to supervisors and high ranking management of the department. Worse, the forms of resistance go well beyond the handling of internal investigations and civilian's complaints against officers to how OPD officers and supervisors investigate crime (they don't like you or the crime you are reporting, they do nothing or do a cover up) to opposing or undermining the City's public safety policies (e.g., the war on sex trafficking). A large swath of OPD officers and supervisors obviously have no intention of ever operating in accord with the NSA's terms or the numerous OPD policies and rules re-written for compliance with the NSA. Their collective conduct goes beyond resistance to defiance of the NSA process and the Federal Court's authority. That long term employees and supervisors have been involved in misconduct/cover-up's and schemes to prevent discipline of officers who engage in misconduct means the problem won't be fixed, as some suggest, by a receivership for screening, training and hiring only. OPD remains a broken law-breaking organization and must be a miserable if not frightening place to work for (particularly) female officers and oficers who try their best to follow the rules.

Re: “Esther Traugot's Funeral for Bees

It is unfortunately a popular myth perpetuated by the EcoActivist left that the honey bee is dying or in danger. Since 2006, when the number of commercial colonies was at 2.1 million, and when the meaningless term CCD - Colony Collapse Disorder was coined, there has been a 50% increase in the number of colonies to approx 3 million. The four important metrics in the industry are all up - number of colonies - pounds per colony - total pounds and price per pound - all up significantly. The losses that are being reported are mostly from Newbees, newbeekeepers - who by the way - fewer than 10% stay active in beekeeping for more than three years.

How is it that we still are not hearing anything at all about Guap's mother amidst all of this, who is an OPD dispatcher?

So what is the current status of the Faeth/Turner incident? Did the Cortez family press charges? Is there a lawsuit or criminal charges against Faeth or Turner?

Re: “Boxing Night at 16th Street Station in West Oakland

Really, Oakland!
The hip-hop reviitalization of west Oakland is way cool, but boxing?
This cruel pastime of slaveowners:
showing off their prized, brawny breeds!
Get real!

OK, I understand making it our own.
But is boxing the legacy we want to hold up as our heritage?
I think not.
Long live Mohammed Ali!
Put boxing to rest in the history books.

"We need better training and selecting for promotion Sgt's and above brass in OPD."

We also need better-qualified politicians who carry the ultimate authority for what OPD does.

Re: “How the Oakland Police Department Worked to Cover-Up Sex Crimes and a Home Invasion Committed by Cops

More we learn about this, the less sense it made for our Mayor to order an audit of OPD training and recruiting young cops. We need better training and selecting for promotion Sgt's and above brass in OPD.

Re: “Oakland's Anti-Coal Activists Decry ‘Deceptive’ Mailer

I think they may be in violation of the City's lobbyist ordinance. If not we need to revise it, this large of a mailer represents significant money. We should know who funded it.

Re: “Choakland: An Exploration of Oakland's Pro-Sports Meltdowns

I don't know where this author is from, but he obviously knows nothing about the history of sports in Oakland. What we see in Oakland is called sports, where anything can happen. Despite the gaffes so noted in the article, there are many examples of the Oakland Raiders and Oakland A's coming through at the end. In fact, there are so many Raider examples, they actually are historical NFL highlights and have their own names (Heidi, Sea of Hands, Ghost to the Post). The Oakland A's won three World Series in the early 70's marked with many big wins at crunch time. What the author fails to realize is that in sports you win some and you loose some. The take away point obviously missed is that you have to first win enough, often enough to be in big games in the first place. Oakland sports teams have clearly done that. Whatever happens after that is what happens, not an symptom of choking!

Re: “Town Business: Oakland Poised to Ban Coal

Thank God the Oakland City Council took the correct action last night and denied Tagami and his cast of opportunists the ability to process coal at the Port of Oakland. Tagami and his cast of local cronies should be ashamed of themselves. For people like Tagami, Marc McClure, Greg McConnell and Jerry Bridges, who all have long histories in Oakland politics, to use the community with inflated promises of jobs is a disgrace. For over a hundred years, people of color have paid a high price, putting their own health at risk doing jobs and living near industries that are slowly killing them. To promote a false choice of jobs or poor health to justify greed and opportunism is borderline criminal.
