Re: “Who Will Be There When You Call 911? Our Writer Plunges Into the World of For-Profit Ambulances.

It's about time the media shined a light on this serious public health issue. You would think in a progressive county like ours this could not happen.
I've always had a problem with "For Profit" companies providing emergency services. It doesn't work to the benefit of the taxpayers.

If this is not the end of Schaaf and Kirkpatrick, then Oakland deserves exactly what it will continue to get; a deepening cesspool of lies & corruption.

Re: “Rising Rents Threaten to Displace Oakland Nonprofits

"Lot's of hate disguised as help comes out of these orgs." You think you can elaborate on this? Show some proof? No. Just another hater of non-profit organizations that are for people in need.
If I worked for one I would have said so.

OMG...what a pit of vipers. Schaaf needs to be removed from office as does the Chief of OPD.

Troubling, to say the least. I hope the Police Commission will do their due diligence once they're up and running. We'll need all hands on deck to bring about the long overdue reforms that are needed to earn the community's trust in its police department.

Re: “Oakland Could Lose Control of Its Police Force After Next Week's Court Hearing

OPD has been out the control of city hall for a very long time.

OPD's ongoing problems have been major expressions of a near-totally incompetent and corrupt civic government.

No matter how tough the Federal Court may get with OPD, the Department's problems of ineffectiveness, ethical challenges, low morale, high rate of turnover, inefficiency, high financial cost and deeply-impaired relations with our diverse communities will not improve until there is a whole new crew of electeds in city hall.

Oakland needs real leaders in city hall. That means honest people with brains, with management skills, with a vision for Oakland and with a high level of ethical achievement.

OPD needs to be completely dismantled. It's a failed institution. Time to implement community based security by reinventing all that cop cash back into the community. Literally demolish those buildings.

Re: “Oakland Could Lose Control of Its Police Force After Next Week's Court Hearing

I'm with Councilman Gallo on this. Thanks for this further report. The 3 promotions need to be cancelled. In a normal workplace with normal levels of accountability, Holmgren would be gone when it came to light that he was trying to prevent career consequences for the home invasion cops. It is becoming more apparent to me that powerful members of the OPD brotherhood/family are like the too big to jail banks/bank executives---zero consequences except forgiveness and promotion....

Re: “Oakland Could Lose Control of Its Police Force After Next Week's Court Hearing

I agree. A full and complete investigation of the Guap case needs to be convened... By authorities outside of the entire Alameda County political/legal structures.

I was reminded by an article elsewhere of recent, past improprieties at the level of the county supervisors and find myself wondering how far up the culture of "cover it up" and denial goes.

When I see pattern of the individual "incidents", I am fascinated that anyone could consider any of this can be adequately investigated by city or county authorities.

Re: “Oakland Could Lose Control of Its Police Force After Next Week's Court Hearing

I'm with Councilman Gallo on this. OPD is clearly beyond the control of anyone in the city, up to and including the chief and the mayor, maybe even the judge. This isn't a case of bad apples, budget and personnel shortfalls, unions, or failures of oversight. OPD has turned itself into a sociopathic culture that's beyond redemption. They're so friggin' evil they poison everything they touch.

OPD doesn't come unless there's a firearm or death involved. So now EMTs get there after you die, too.

Re: “Oakland Could Lose Control of Its Police Force After Next Week's Court Hearing

Shiesty usually refers to an action that is greedy and/or inconsiderate. When someone is shiesty it means they dont think about others and do things that help ...

Wake up OPD!! Fire all who was involved in the scandal. Why should they benefit from wrong doing? New leadership.
