Re: “Berkeley's New Progressive Majority Gets Serious About Homelessness Solutions

Who knew there were 12,000 homeless people on Berkeley's streets?

"But for a city with 10 percent of the population on the streets, tiny homes are not space efficient."

Only off by approximately an order of magnitude!

Fascists to the right of me, Fascists to the right of me, stuck in the middle doorway to the courthouse with Darwin BondGraham.

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

Wow. And it will probably only get worse.

If people have a right to a closed hearing, then it seems like the judge should ask them before the proceedings begin, and take appropriate action. Other than that, the public should have the right to observe.

Re: “Poll: White, Affluent Oaklanders Happiest. Black Residents Least Happy. And Everyone's Freaked Out By Housing Crisis.

What if you'all reduced OPD ranks by 53 people and formed a professional football team? Then you could spend that extra $10M on homelessness, schools and affordable housing. Would that work?

Re: “Oakland Privacy Commission Approves Surveillance Transparency and Oversight Law

Such policies and procedures for oversight are more critical than ever in the Age of Trump. Not that the Obama administration's record on civil liberties and surveillance had any redeeming features, but we can only expect things to get worse come January 20th.

Putting this in place is one single step of a thousand mile journey in defeating what we all know is possible - a ubiquitous surveillance state beyond anything Orwell could have imagined. But it's a good one.

Bravo to those who worked so hard to put this together.
