Re: “Troubled by Police Mishandling of Sex Crime Investigation, Federal Judge Orders City of Oakland Back to Court

Instead of focusing on the Monitoring costs...try the nearly $100 million the City has had to pay on police misconduct settlements and Court losses since the NSA went into effect.....for police conduct that too often has amounted to both violations of the law and the terms of the NSA. Breaking the law to enforce the law does not make us szfer, nor does keeping and promoting cops that break the law, to buy momentary political peace with the OPOA.

Re: “Troubled by Police Mishandling of Sex Crime Investigation, Federal Judge Orders City of Oakland Back to Court

Ms. Grinage wrings her hands over the cost of federal oversight. Well, court-appointed monitor Robert Warshaw rakes in millions of dollars year after year by never finding Oakland in compliance. He always finds something, about as important as not tieing shoelaces per regulation. A simple remedy to prevent this abuse is a one-year limit on holding the monitoring contract; then if needed, someone else gets the contract. But Ms. Grinage hasn't called for this reform, because she has a personal grudge against OPD. And the City hasn't the guts to push for this rule, appealing over Henderson if necessary.

Can't wait for the new Police Commission to make a difference...with ex-felons on the board every criminal and BLM member should get what they ask for...talk about corruption and runaway trains!

Meanwhile the EBX sock puppets keeps waving sex scandals in the face of the electorate to distract from the problems of homelessness, poverty and corruption in the city.

Allowing the long seated corrupt city council and it's profiteering supporters to run rampant over the the majority of Oakland citizens.

And millions more in taxpayer dollars now must be committed to ongoing Federal oversight which has already cost the City of Oakland more than $30 million. And still, the OPD budget continues to increase yearly with many millions of unbudgeted overtime.We are hostages on a runaway train hurtling down the tracks. We can only pray that the Oakland Police Commission will, in time, provide the kind of oversight and accountability that the City has thus far been able to achieve.

Re: “Oakland Council Meeting Disrupted, Vote on Budget Prevented

Shameful denial of the democratic process! If I can't get my way government can't be allowed to work. Sounds like president Donald Trump.

Re: “City of Oakland Poised to Give Public Land to Nonprofit that Improperly Received $710,000 in County Funds

Do we detect Schaaf's fine hand in this new way to steal public monies? Just asking.

Was Brooks operating in her professional capacity when she was alleged to have assaulted Brown ? If not, then I don't see how Brown would have any claim against the city.

Whenever land is sold off at below market rates there is always something underhand in the works.

Something stinks about this whole business. The City of Oakland is once again skirting the requirements of good governance in the name of "providing affordable housing." Where is the transparency the public is entitled to and which the law requires? I call upon the entire Council to withdraw from this plan until all legal and financial qualifications have been established. The process should be thrown open to enable other qualified non-profits to make competitive bids. Chuck Johnston, Jack London Waterfront Warehouse neighborhood.
