Re: “Police Did Not Arrest East Oakland Shooter Despite Two Earlier Gunfire Incidents In A Week At His Home

If police were reluctant to take action without overwhelming proof of crime, you can thank Judge Thelton Henderson for the proceduralism he imposed on the department.

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

What is missing from this story is that a 2nd tube is NOT inevitable. BART is outdated, very expensive technology. Richmond based http://www.Cybertran.com has vastly superior technology which will be operational within a few years, (there are also other companies with similarly similarly superior transit technology competing) It is sad that The Express has never reported on this. Before Bush offered a federal loan to build the OAC with super-expensive outdated technology, Cybertran was planning to build the OAC with no additional funding required. But it never made the news, so now the 1st major Cybertran installation is expected to be to the UC Berkeley campus

Re: “Dan Savage: Should You Tell Him or Her That You're Cheating? Or Keep it Secret?

No one could have ever made me believe that the letter I'm about to write would actually one day be written. I was the worlds biggest skeptic. I never believed in magic spells or anything like that, but I was told by a reliable source (a very close co-worker) that Dr Oniha is a very dedicated, gifted, and talented person, and after much cajoling, she (my co-worker) got me to visit email ONIHASPELLTEMPLE@GMAIL.COM. It was one of the best things I have ever done. My love life was in shambles; I had been through two divorces and was on the brink of a third. I just couldn't face another divorce, and I wanted to try harder to make our relationship work, but my husband didn't seem to care. So, with nothing but my pride to lose, I checked it out. I was flabbergasted. Dr Marvel is for REAL. He did whatever magic he does, and lo and behold no more than TWO DAYS later, I had my husband back! It was like a miracle! He suddenly wanted to go to marriage counseling, and were doing very, very well, on the road to recovery! Love and Many Blessings Back to You! Contact Dr Oniha VIA email ONIHASPELLTEMPLE@GMAIL.COM OR ONIHASPELLTEMPLE@HOTMAIL.COM. You can also contact him directly on his website http://onihaspelltemple.webs.com

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

Thank you...reading from Copenhagen, Denmark, and after being in a march of solidarity recently, seeing all the 'ordinary' people who showed up, your words resonate deeply....and think it's very important to frame the response this way. Peace and love.

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

As noted by previous poster, this headline is misleading at best. You weren't kicked out; you chose to leave.

This is a good article and you are shedding light on an important topic, but please refrain from such hyperbole.

Re: “East Bay Coffee Shops Are Helping to Lead the Resistance

Word! Great article but Alchemy Collective in Berkeley next time! Worker-owned by mostly queer/POC folks.

Re: “East Bay Coffee Shops Are Helping to Lead the Resistance

For real! How is Alchemy Collective not on this list? They've even been a member of EBX's Think Indie Campaign for over a year!

Here are a few reasons why they might deserve to be on this list:

(1) THE SOLIDARITY ECONOMY

Alchemy is 100% worker-owned and 100% democratically run by a squad of predominantly Black, brown, and queer folks.

Alchemy was founded by three low-income baristas who wanted to create dignified careers (and business ownership) for themselves and other working class folks. And that's more impressive than businesses founded by well-meaning well-off investors with predetermined missions who hire members from marginalized groups to execute those missions without giving them real control over the capital they create. Right? Right.

They let community groups host events and fundraisers after hours for FREE. Such groups include Hasta Muerte Coffee, Community Democracy Project (Oakland), Sustainable Economies Law Center, Alipato Project, Justice for My Sister, an art therapy group, an anti-gentrification reading group, and more!

They incubate other worker-owned businesses for free and provide a lot of free emotional labor to houseless folks and other folks in need.

(2) MOVEMENT-ART GALLERY

Months after movement-artist Oree Originol's art show at Alchemy ended, his "Justice for Eric Garner," "Justice for Mike Brown," and "Justice for Sandra Bland" posters remain on Alchemy's windows. They host other local artists every month.

(3) ANTI-GENTRIFICATION AND LOCAL POLITICS

Alchemy is a member of the only business association in Berkeley that fights criminalizing homelessness. Ever aware of the dangerous effects of gentrification, instead of relying on the police, Alchemy established a network of social workers, family members, and neighboring businesses to help de-escalate potentially dangerous conflicts.

(4) NATIONAL POLITICS AND ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE

Alchemy joined the national inaugural strike on January 20th. A portion of the proceeds from Alchemy's Snakebite blend goes to Standing Rock. But their #NODAPL efforts don't stop there. Alchemy inspires folks to be more aware and more accountable: To the left of the Alchemy cash register is a list of banks that fund DAPL. To the right of their cash register is a Standing Rock donation box.

Alchemy sources food from the farmer's market, their beans are organic, their take-out stuff is compostable, and they use solar power. They have hosted events about community-owned renewable energy and fundraisers for environmental justice.

(5) COMMUNITY EDUCATION

They provide access to an expensive curated radical book collection to the public even though someone keeps stealing their James Baldwin books. They help resisters of domestic violence by selling the Radical Feminist Coloring Book and distributing "know-your-rights" brochures.

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

Where is Derick Almena? This is where the anger and responsibility should be directed. Perhaps it is because people want to go after deeper pockets.

Re: “Darwin BondGraham, Ali Winston Win Prestigious George Polk Award For East Bay Express Series on Oakland Police Scandal

Reporters like BondGraham and Winston are indispensable, especially after the demise of the Oakland Tribune and the absence of beat reporters at City Hall. Democracy becomes impracticable without journalists who can devote time to researching long-form stories like theirs. What I'm wondering is, does this award come with any money?

Re: “Dan Savage: Should You Tell Him or Her That You're Cheating? Or Keep it Secret?

My husband left me for another woman three months ago and ever since then my life have been filled with pains sorrow and heart break because he was my first love whom i have spent my entire life with. A friend of mine told me he saw some testimonies of a spell caster called Prophet Lucky that he can bring back lover within some few days, i laugh it out and said i am not interested but because of the love my friend had for me, she consulted the great priest on my behalf and to my greatest surprise after 2 days my husband called me for the very first time after three months that he is missing me and that he is so sorry for every thing he made me went through.He came back to me and now we are happy together. I still cant believe it, because it highly unbelievable. Thank you Prophet Lucky for bringing back my lover and also to my lovely friend who interceded on my behalf, for any one who might need the help of this great priest here is the email address: luckyspelltemple@gmail.com or His Website: https://luckyspelltemple.wordpress.com
