Re: “Amid Calls to 'Defund' Oakland Police, City Settles $989,000 Claim of Sexually Exploited Teen 'Celeste Guap'

i wonder if schaaf would think this was a 'fair resolution' if it was her daughter . she knew, and let it go on . she's part and parcel of the abuses by opd . instead of allowing the new citizen's police watchdog to hire an appropriate new chief for a reasonable price, she hand picked her new opd chief and offered even more money than the last several corrupt chiefs were taking out of town

time to go, schaaf . thanks to desley for stating what should be obvious to every thinking person

Is the 43% solving the existing crime problem, Vincent? Hell no. That's obvious. Cutting funding for law enforcement guarantees more crime and more dead bodies in the streets. That's no solution either. Nor does it directly solve widening income disparity or fix the six inch deep holes in the roads (that result in expensive repairs for businesses and residents)

The resulting crime and violence DOES make Oakland unattractive for things that would bring in needed dollars for schools, libraries, fire department and all of the other services.

Hey Bruce, Oakland spends 43% of its budget on OPD. 43%. Not helping, is it? Why not 100%? That will, of course, take care of all the crime, right? Close up that widening income gap, bring jobs in, etc. We don't need libraries, the fire dept, schools, good roads... More police= no crime, right? Riiigghhhttt....

Oakland crime problems are long standing. The council uses them to make grandstand plays while doing nothing about them except grandstanding.

Lets see... R. Kaplan how many terms of office? (not just her current AT LARGE position). How many for Brooks? McElhaney?... And it's the mayor who's corrupt?! Who has been in office longer?

The "community" keeps electing them to get their neighborhood "payoffs".

As long as that continues, street cops will get burned out and just not care anymore and just see the job as a means to "get theirs"... By any means necessary.

OPD officers should have been enforcing the law. They should NOT have been facilitating and taking advantage. No argument.

Doesn't it strike ANYONE else as odd that a family member of an OPD employee is at the center of this whole mess?

The fact that she was under age grants her an impenetrable shield of a immunity.

Isn't that in and of itself odd? And this perfect storm "just happened" and it all the cops fault?

I'm not fan of cops, but this whole thing has reeked from day one and the stink just keeps getting worse.

Police can't stop crime this is evident. They police. They investigate. They wouldn't have jobs if crime didn't exist. Every thing exist due to supply and demand. The law is present the police enforce the law. Why has sex trafficking increased? The war on drugs not so much a war its about who can get involved. Greed and corruption exists within the system.

This has nothing with OPD's "lack of diversity" and everything to do with a corrupt police department and even more corrupt Mayor.

Are the officers involved still going to face their criminal charges? Tax payers are constantly covering for OPD's fuck ups.
I also agree with council-member Brooks; this doesn't seem like enough to cover the shit OPD did.

Re: “Amid Calls to 'Defund' Oakland Police, City Settles $989,000 Claim of Sexually Exploited Teen 'Celeste Guap'

Of course we should spend less on law enforcement... Why should the people of the city be concerned about the following:

Man shot to death , 45-year-old Godofredo Nah-Pol just after midnight May 23 on the 2100 block of Fruitvale Avenue.

A man was shot and killed in Oakland on the 5100 block of International Boulevard at 51st Avenue just before 4 p.m (broad daylight no less) on Tuesday May 30th.

That was just this week. Odd Ms Brooks, Ms Kaplan the rest of the city council seem blind to these senseless deaths never once mentioning them. Not to mention members of the fourth estate, the sock puppet BondGrahm/EBX.

Solutions folks. Not hand wringing. Not grand standing.

Oh never mind, the bullets weren't blue and Oakland doesn't snitch.

Re: “Ship Show Served Up Hip-Hop On A Former Navy Aircraft Carrier, Complete With First-Time Festival Hiccups

You said above "and the fact that they were told Keak da Sneak, a Bay Area Legend, would not be performing, only to take the stage." Not clear, did he show up and play after all?

Re: “Hayward Police Chief: There Is No Video of Fatal Police Shooting of 16-Year-Old Elena Mondragon

The shooting of pregnant 16 year old Elena Mondragon occurred in City View apartment complex owened by Essex Property Trust, a multimillion dollar cooperation. City View is an area where criminal activities are continuously growing out of the management's control, as they downplays crime to its residents in order to continue increasing the rent. I don't condone the shooting of Mondragon for being in that area with the wrong friends. Yet, the shooting took place in the City View community comprises of over 500 units where criminal background checks in the past was not done in order to move in. If I was a police officer, I'd be quick to think of protecting myself first in that area.

Re: “City Emails: Many Dublin Residents Think Undocumented Immigrants Are 'Felons' Who Will Turn Their Town Into a 'Cesspool'

By the way Gary Patton, I was just looking through the old Milo Berkeley post and was surprised to see you comment there too (what can I say, I'm always late when it comes to the news or looking through articles), and I know you're probably not going to read this post, but if you do, I just want to tell you and everyone that anarchism itself is not as scary as it sounds and not just for white males; it's not just about breaking windows either. People of all races adhere to this centuries old political ideology, including Asians, African-Americans, Native Americans and Hispanics. I recommend you do some research on it; wikipedia's a good start. You can also visit an anarchist bookfair in SF. Trust me, anarchism is not that scary. As a Chinese-American, philosophically, I personally base my anarchism in Taoism and the Buddhist tradition of non-violence.

Some people end up Marxist or liberal or conservative or alt-right , but I ended up as an anarchist feminist (anarcha-feminist) because I grew up in a very diverse area, stayed in Dublin long enough, faced and witnessed sexism, racism and bullying everywhere in the Bay Area (including San Francisco), ask why some people are homeless and some are not, paid attention to the news, and took critical thinking and history courses in high school and college. Anarchism just came naturally to me as it is anti-authoritarian, based on direct democracy, and social and economic equality.

So to bring all of this back to this topic, I hate the fact that what was once a growingly diverse sleepy little quint Irish town (with awesome St. Patrick's Day parades) waiting to become the famous little sister to Hayward, San Leandro, Oakland and Berkeley has now become famous as a town full of bigotry, which is far from the truth and much more nuanced, because not every single resident in Dublin or Livermore or San Ramon thinks the same way or eats the same food (part-whole fallacy). I judge a place by whether I feel comfortable expressing my far-left feminist anarchist views as a person of color in public. Dublin has always been a place where I feel comfortable doing so everywhere I go without people screaming at me or giving me weird or dirty looks. Maybe they hide their feelings well and secretly want me gone, but I really doubt that. I know some people in Dublin espouse racist or prejudiced sentiments, but just as many are against it, as the article states.
