Re: “Parents, Teachers, and Students at Oakland Charter School Accuse Leadership of Mismanagement

If superintendent and board collude in corrupt behavior, then change in one leadership position will not bring the sought-after change.

Also, have the parents and teachers articulated what different policies and procedures look like?

Are there individuals trusted enough by both parties to serve as arbitrators to achieve agreement on both short and long term goals?

Finally, let's remember that education is a noble pursuit. Our children depend on us to provide it; our society depends upon an educated citizenry.

I respect the fact that you have challenged Trump. He is a despicable thing.

Re: “Parents, Teachers, and Students at Oakland Charter School Accuse Leadership of Mismanagement

This is about whether private management is corrupt as charters are publicly funded privately managed schools. The idea that private is better or less corrupt than public has not been the historic situation with the American Indian Schools. In fact the history of American Indian is associated with corruption.

Aren't public schools supposed to be corrupt?

Re: “Oakland Councilmembers Accuse Mayor Schaaf of 'Bait and Switch' With Soda Tax Revenue

SO... After carefully reading the post by Ms Kaplan on 5/1/2017 (well after the statutory time limit for the mayor to appoint), we should note the council MAY fill the vacancy.. And since they are so outraged there is no advisory board should have at a bare minimum submitted suggestions. Ultimately, the council had and does have final say over any appointment made to this board.

This would seem to indicate the the council bears substantial responsibility... Including the author of the measure (and vice mayor).

Self serving Tammany Hall methods as usual.

Todd, assuming you're employed. Do you 1) ask to be paid lower than your skills worth? 2) if you can live off of $2,000 a month do you tell your employer to stop paying you more?

Somehow, I don't think you do.

Re: “BART Police Accused of Illegally Collecting Private Cell Phone Data and Tracking Riders Through App

"...she wouldn't have originally installed the app if she knew it obtained information to identify and locate her phone. "?! WTF, the app clearly says it does that at install time. The fact that information CAN be correlated doesn't mean it is being correlated.

Something reeks here.

Re: “BART Police Accused of Illegally Collecting Private Cell Phone Data and Tracking Riders Through App

Whatever safeguards the app needs, don't kill it. A couple of us rode BART Sunday afternoon. At the Embarcadero stop, a gang of several youth in hoodies on a hot day, no more than 14 years old, made two attempts to snatch purses in our crowded car - one of them from the person I was with. The robber gangs do not operate only at Coliseum station, they do not operate only at night. It would be great if someone caught good snaps of these thieves and passed them on to BART - and posted them publicly.

Re: “BART Police Accused of Illegally Collecting Private Cell Phone Data and Tracking Riders Through App

With a surveillance equipment regulation ordinance, aka a comprehensive privay ordinance, BART would have been required to vet this app to the public and say exactly what kind of information it was gathering, to whom it would go to and for how long it would be stored. Based on this information and public input the BART Board could have then decided to go ahead with the app, change some parameters about how it had to operate, or nix it.

This is not a radical idea! It's what oversight and transparency means. The BART board needs to step up and pass the ACLU/Oakland Privacy surveillance equipment regulation ordinance that's been worked on with staff and privacy advocates since last year now.

Re: “Former Tennis Pro Says East Bay Landlord Michael Marr Was Major Player in Scheme to Rig Foreclosure Auctions

So Glad he's finally being charged. Illegally evicted me, lied in court. This man deserves to rot in hell

Re: “Trial Begins for East Bay Landlord Accused of Rigging Foreclosure Auctions

He's an cold hearted human who deserves to be locked up in the Pen. He kept boosting our rent from $1200 to 1,650 in three months with no fixing any of our carpets, lights or doors. Finally came and fixed it after 9 months of begging!!! He deserves to get locked up. There are poor elderly people who lives in his other property who went from 1,000 to 2,800 on rent. Mr. Marr deserve the toilet in prison. Then serve me eviction notes not even on the day of rent but before. His daughter is a cold hearted just like him. Her name is Jessica and she runs her father business located at Community Realty. Take their @$$3s to prison!!!

Re: “FBI Hid Surveillance Devices Around Alameda County Courthouse

*Seems completely reasonable for bidders to decide not to compete with each other on the courthouse steps. It's a cash sale with bidders showing up with hundreds of thousands of dollars in cashiers checks. If no other qualified bidders show up on that day the remaining bidders have the discretion to do whatever they want in regards to bidding or not. After the sale the winning bidder also has the right to resell the property publicly or privately.

Re: “Town Business: Landlords Defeat Bill to Preserve Oakland's SROs and Mayor Schaaf Will 'Set Aside' Soda Tax Revenue

I live in an old apartment building in Oakland, the landlords are a married couple who bought it in the 1950's. After 12 years my rent has gone from $1100 to $1350. They could have raised it much higher. I asked them one day why not and they basically said they didn't need any more money. Shame on the greed-heads who have no problem kicking out poor people, the people who clean their toilets and wash their car and nanny to their kids. Heartless.
