Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
I take pictures and make hypocritical remarks at people behind their backs.
Is this supposed to say "single" or something?
We can put all the kill switches you can scratch up on all the phones, we can drench Oakland in a sea of cops, we can electrify all the fences. But Oakland will always be the city where my car gets broken into once a year, where people get mugged for their phones, where broken glass on the pavement phases no one. At least it will be until people, at least most people, have a shot at the kind of employment that renders to break into cars to survive unnecessary.
It's sad the original location couldn't be worked out, but I'm so excited to have the Parkway back!!
I am proud to be a graduate of a private school, and did, on occasion, participate in fundraisers for the schools I attended. However, asking a minor to out-and-out solicit cash donations is ridiculous and asking for trouble. I would also seriously question its effectiveness as a fundraising tool. And where is all this cash going? Twenty students? How is a k-12 operating with twenty students?
I smell a big, fat, stinky rat here. And he's huuuuungry!
A curfew? Oakland police doesn't seem to be able to enforce the laws out there as it is. Let's just throw an extra one out there as a posture-laden band-aid.
And that curfew in Fresno? It's still a crime infested mess there, curfew or not!
Seriously, there is enough need just blocks from the Berkeley Campus for, well, ANYTHING, that I just can't understand how it's acceptable to dump functional items. Respect the bounty of your ugly ikea desk and give it to someone who needs it!!
