Good to know Corbett is against police oversight.

Re: “Celeste Guap, Woman at Center of Oakland Police Sex-Crime Scandal, Arrested in Florida

Smells like a case of witness tampering and victim blaming. Under what statute was Guap forced to enter rehab? Had she been found guilty of a crime? Why was it deemed appropriate to ship her across country to a facility in Florida, and of course, who is paying for her 'treatment'? Richmond PD's pious 'we can't comment on anyone's rehab' statement is another example of how 'law enforcement' hide their crimes behind a veil of privacy concerns.

Re: “Mama’s Royal Cafe Is for Sale

Clearly Danny Hipps is unhappy about having to pay his drywall employees in Carlsbad anything close to a living wage.

Bus drivers need such a location. They aren't machines. End of story.

Re: “Boycotters Accuse 924 Gilman St. Project of Ethical Backslide

My punk years preceded Gilman's heyday, and as I never much cared for hardcore (Circle Jerks was about it for me, maybe a little Black Flag) I've not had much cause to go there (though I have been to a few shows & have a membership card). That said, I have always appreciated its all ages/straight edge policies and wish there had been such a place for me when I was a teenager.

I sincerely hope the club can work through these issues and continue doing its most important job - providing a home for the outcasts, losers, and punk rock geeks (such as yours truly).

Re: “Trump Calls Oakland One of Most Dangerous Cities in the World

Trump's response was racially coded misrepresentation serving as red meat for the Republican base. Oakland and Ferguson the most dangerous places in the world? Hardly - in fact, neither feature in this recent survey (though a few other American cities do): http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/wo….

Re: “Trump Calls Oakland One of Most Dangerous Cities in the World

Jerome Funkhauser: Trump claimed Oakland was one of the most dangerous cities in the world, not in the country. That's a complete and utter fabrication, not 'simply...a fact'.
