Major league sports always hose Oakland. The City Council encourages them and lets them.

Re: “Kyle "Based Stickman" Chapman Jailed, Barred from Possessing Sticks and Other Weapons

Wow so all of you aholes are looking to have him put into jail? Why? Are you jealous of him- hes good looking, built, takes care of himself and is super protective of the people he cares about. Hes not a coward- I know for fact- as I had to stop a scuffle between him and another kid that was running his mouth. I wonder how many of you have actually talked to him? I have- Id trust him with my life but if you dont ever speak to him- youll never really know a thing about him. Kyle is grown up- and not a bully- or a coward.

Re: “Watching the Watchdog

This letter reflects the opinion of our active staff members at the Office of the Oakland City Auditor.

We feel compelled to respond to the recent article released about City Auditor, Brenda Roberts, as it does not accurately portray her management style, is one-sided, and relies heavily on allegations Brenda was absolved of. Simply put, we do not recognize the woman portrayed in this article.

We know Brenda to be a professional, caring, intelligent, passionate and compassionate leader. She ensures her staff is well trained, intellectually challenged, and cares about our career trajectories, and overall well-being.

It is a pleasure to work with her. She cares deeply about serving Oakland and makes certain we feel a sense of pride and ownership around our work and audits. She offers guidance and support and encourages us to attend trainings to boost our crucial audit skills required to ensure the City of Oakland runs more efficiently.

Brenda embraces the celebration of milestones (such as the release of audits, birthdays, newly hired team members, etc.) and develops relationships with other departments so we arent working in silos, disconnected from the larger workings of the City.

She also NEVER stops working. Whether she is out in the community at Neighborhood Crime Prevention Council meetings, responding to Whistleblower complaints, attending City Council meetings, or guiding us through audits, her strong work ethic infuses our work. We have produced a total of 10 audits since Brenda took office in 2015. Another 4 audits in OFD, OPD, Public Works and the Public Ethics Commission will be released soon.

Housing, of course, is one of the top issues facing Oakland and our Rent Adjustment Program audit was pivotal in bringing about significant changes to Oaklands housing and rental program. We are proud our Rent Adjustment Program audit was recognized with a Knighton Award and will positively impact Oaklands response to the housing crisis.

Currently, our team is united, thriving and gaining traction. We are honored that Brenda is at the helm of our office and feel lucky to be working and growing with her.

We look forward to engaging in the important work ahead of us, and most importantly, serving this City we all care so deeply about.

The Office of the City Auditor

Re: “Boycotters Accuse 924 Gilman St. Project of Ethical Backslide

Punk has been over for a while now, guys. No need to act like angry SJW's over nothing, You can't hide from naughty words all your life. 924 Gilman Street is one of the biggest jokes in the music venue field, comparable to a Planet Fitness, where if you workout and grunt too hard, an actual alarm will go off. Soundwoman is a cunt too.

Re: “Oakland Ethics Commissioner Accuses Officials of Abusing Access to Free Warriors and Raiders Tickets

Of course they do. And this has been going on forever. There should be NO free tickets, if the council wants to investigate, they can pay for a cheap ticket and be reimbursed. This is just graft as it is.

Under lawful CIRCUMSTANCES & EVENTS Police must have equipment to 'detain' motor vehicles just as Police 'detain' persons in handcuffs.

Re: “Overland Country Bar and World Ground Cafe Shut Their Doors

Sorry to hear about World Ground. The owners have always been workers and spent long hours trying to make it go.

They hoped the area would be developed more, it wasn't.

Re: “The Mother and the Officer

So two officers went up to a car, the occupants tried to run, appeared to be fighting, and had a gun in sight. What are the officers supposed to do? Apologize and let them go?
