Re: “Sideshows Spin Donuts Around Police Over Thanksgiving Weekend in Oakland

The spectacle and danger remind me of the guerrilla art of Survival Research Laboratories, but sideshows look pretty boring, to be honest. How many times can you watch a car drive in a circle?

Re: “Savor Oakland Adds Fruitvale Food Tour

I'm very disappointed that you've included Reem's on this tour. There have been ongoing pickets at her cafe, because her facility features a floor to ceiling mural of a convicted terrorist, Rasmea Odeh who planted a bomb in a grocery store that killed 2 and injured 9. Reem Assil's response to the pickets was an orchestrated attack, reported in the local Jewish paper. A 78 year old Holocaust survivor was attacked! https://www.jweekly.com/2017/07/11/protest…
When physical attacked failed to stop the picket line, she filed restraining orders that were denied by the court. With all the fantastic eateries in our community, surely you could find one that reflects our community values better than Reem's. Thank you.

Re: “Hasta Muerte Serves Coffee with a Side of Resistance

I apologize for not making my comment clear Eric Sisneros.

I do not mean to be critical or disrespectful of anyone as individuals, as entrepenures or as millennials. The owner's model of cafe as community meeting spot is great. I live nearby and walk/drive by FV and E27 a dozen times a day for 25 years. My comment doesnt come from judging intent. Im an old head. It comes from my own experience and observations. Too often community is raised against things and nothing more. Ive seen it neighborhood watch groups before. By opening their space to groups, the owners take on a responsibility. Who uses the space and to what ends. Man, stuff is changing so F- ing fast we have grey areas that require extra thought and sensitivity to navigate. People with good intentions need to be especially mindful in order to stay true to those intentions. Its humbling and hard.

BTW anyone old enough to open their own joint aint 'youth', they are the adult citizenry making It happen! i wish them all the best.

Re: “Mama's Royal Cafe Reopens Under New Ownership

Never a favorite. Always found the staff inattentive and the food not great and the cost more than you should have to pay for diner food.

Re: “Activists Call for Audit of Sheriff Ahern

Re: “Kyle "Based Stickman" Chapman Charged with Possession of Leaded Stick by Alameda District Attorney

Hopefully these coward prosecutors aren't reported without any mention of their names. If they are going to apply the law based on politics then they will be recognized for such

Re: “Hasta Muerte Serves Coffee with a Side of Resistance

Come on TSP. This crew is completely anti Fascist. The article is painting a picture of radical youth trying to do things their own way, bucking the system, and THIS is your concern?

Drop in and make your own assessment.

This isn't a crew of privileged millenniels.

Re: “Complaint Filed Against Oakland Police Chief for False Statements

Chip Johnson was correct. There is no right in Oakland. The left eats itself daily.

Re: “Monday’s Briefing: Oakland Gets 255 Legal Pot Permit Applications; Another State Legislator Accused of Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment claims and incidents being reported are the tip of the iceberg. This is going to get huge.

Re: “Mama's Royal Cafe Reopens Under New Ownership

Will be interesting to see how it turns out. It used to be a good place to eat with staff that was a bit rude on purpose.

Re: “Despite Canceled Hearing, Oakland Councilmembers Still Plan to Talk About Controversial ICE Raid

The hearing had been scheduled on October 12. A month before the Internal Affairs complaint was even filed. The hearing was not about the IA complaint. It was about OPD's actions during the West Oakland ICE raid. Schaaf announced on November 21 that she would support a policy to prevent all future OPD cooperation with HSI or ICE.

Re: “Monday’s Briefing: Oakland Gets 255 Legal Pot Permit Applications; Another State Legislator Accused of Sexual Harassment

Back in the day, many decades ago, when it was cool to be a stoner (especially as opposed to an alky), no one could even have hallucinated that pot would become a mainstream economic sector.

Personally I still think it's an hallucination, but I haven't had a toke yet today.

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

Oh, no!!!!!!! Starved for years without a country bar and music spot and now after a couple of years it's gone. Sad loss for us country music fans and Oakland. I'll be dead before another one comes to town.

Re: “Study: Higher Minimum Wage and Other Progressive Policies Have Not Hurt Economic Growth in California

And of all things coming from one of the most liberal institutions in the country. Give it a rest as to what comes out of the UC System and the progressive agenda.
