Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
The Dimond District has a Wells Fargo and a B of A on opposite corners and both with bus stops in front. This is a MAJOR intersection with hundreds of people getting on and off each day and no problems. Perhaps AC Transit should do a survey of all the bus stops they have that are close to banks to see if there have been ANY instances of robbery that support Summit Bank's fear. Leslie
Sitting in an all white restaurant or walking instead of taking a bus were acts of protest. But no one else was prevented from eating or riding the bus. That is the difference. Chaining oneself to a Bart train means no one else, whether supporters or detractors can ride the train. That includes minorities.
A $70,000 fine is fair and as someone else said. we elect people to enforce the law whether we agree with their politics or not.
Holy cow people, stop whining!!!! This a
is a major development in a city that needs more than an empty Barnes and Noble occupying prime real estate. Put your own development plan together or open your own bowling alley but whatever, stop complaining whenever something good happens. Bowling IS family fun. And if no NorCal developer stepped up with a great idea I'm for whomever does. At least it is a California developer and not out of state. Glass half full people,not half empty.
