Re: “Oakland Mayor Schaaf and Police Seek Unproven 'Predictive Policing' Software

That Oakland and its Mayor would even consider this hocus-pocus is clear evidence of how ignorant our police department and our elected officials are about crime. Wow! Hey, Schaaf! Human behavior can not be put into a mathematical "box." You have been watching too much science fiction. This is pre-crime; it only works in the imagination. Get busy with the things that we know that work and expand them with that $100,000 plus.

Re: “Why We Oppose the Oakland Spy Center

The Mayor claims that the DAC will aid disaster recovery. Again, there is no evidence of that. History reveals that the same was said of the Vietnam era helicopters that were push on poorly administered and led cities like Oakland. After the Federal subsidy ran out, Oakland was stuck with a big maintenance and personnel cost and few takers - neither the Port or the County - to share the rescue and disaster capability costs. The Port's DAC will save the Port not the residents or businesses of Oakland

Re: “Drone Surveillance May Be Unconstitutional

Drones should ONLY be used to find and constantly monitor people who have assault weapons and such mass killing devices.

Re: “A Guide to the North Oakland Gang Injunction

Fear often makes humans stop thinking with their brains. Fear is also manipulated by popularist and politicians to no good end except the perpetuation of the politician and the expenditure of money for no good end. The overwhelming conclusion of the study of gang injunctions is that they do not work to significantly reduce violence or criminality. (That's a period.) There are alternative gang initiatives that do work. (That's a period) The police officers, who would implement this North Oakland injunction and the other 12 that Russo wants, do not want to have to name the folks first. This is Russo's Folly. It is akin to Jim Crow laws in the South; meant to solve one problem but got used for something else that was wrong and evil.
