Re: “Residents Report Being Evicted from Tuff Shed Camp

Other concerns: The non-profit operating the camp had a sexual assault reported and did NOTHING? Granted, the parties involved attempted to solve it weapons and both were removed, but this REALLY reeks.

And not EVEN the "advocates" or author found this... Difficult?

W a i t a m i n u t e!!!

Is the white house writing these now?

Re: “State Bill Would Be a Game-Changer for California's Home Cooks

In general, I like the idea... Just like I liked the "freewheeling" lofts... Until 37 people died and I found out hundreds more were living in vermin infested spaces that the owners couldn't/wouldn't clean up (can't do much if not much is coming in).

I think this will be a HUGE boon... Until a bad batch happens. And then an even bigger bust. It won't be pretty.

In 2016, I was given this diagnosis. I had never heard of it and to this day I still question it yet being an artist and looking at all the artwork of my life, my eyes gaze at this artwork and I am moved with a deep sorrow of an unexplained understanding.
I am most decided to learn how to use acrylic to better express what lies within. Thank you

Re: “Residents Report Being Evicted from Tuff Shed Camp

I'm FAR more concerned that the city has contracted with an agency to operate the "camps"... I really love that word for these.

And then claims NO responsibility for decisions and operations (and, apparently, no oversight).

Which council member(s) backed the non-profit?

Re: “City of Oakland Plans to Ban Homeless from Camping Around Lake Merritt

Our homeless residents are the casualties of increasingly out of control capitalism, which is now eating its own in order to keep feeding the corporate bottom line. Housing should be a right, not a privilege, and we need a massive public housing program to alleviate this perpetually growing problem. Unfortunately, the preponderance of comments attached to this story suggest that even the 'liberal' Bay Area isn't interested in the kind of systemic change that's needed.

Re: “City of Oakland Plans to Ban Homeless from Camping Around Lake Merritt

Finally. This sense of entitlement some homeless have that they have a right to live somewhere is crazy. I have moved more than once because I could no longer afford the community I lived in. I have also been homeless and I can say it's not a viable option. It's a downward slope that goes nowhere good.

Re: “Residents Report Being Evicted from Tuff Shed Camp

Great article Meg. I'm concerned that the sheds don't think of gender issues when housing vulnerable and more vulnerable like women with men. No diff than prisons!

Re: “After Three Years, Oakland Police Release Body-Camera Video of Demouria Hogg Shooting

All wrong; as to WHY the system of pOlicing needs to be re-evaluated, and have less emotional confrontations by the pOlice.....yes many, many of the community, and pOlice are racist, and many in the coMMunity have zero respect for any pOlice, yet when your 'mom', sister' or 'brother' require pOlice services, YOU expect, and demand eQual representation......same as POlice should do for the community vs having 18 pOlice show up for a man sleeping/occupying a vehicle...total chaos, and tragedy as a result...as testosterone, emotions, cortisol,can be a deadly mix....RE-Train the pOlice Brain...

Re: “Fire at 'The Village' Homeless Camp in East Oakland Displaces 37

Is there a go fund me?

Re: “After Three Years, Oakland Police Release Body-Camera Video of Demouria Hogg Shooting

The more funding law enforcement gets, the more they will seek actions which justify advancing perfect law and order. It is very hard to argue against not putting one's life on the line, but preserving a man's life, regardless of previous accusation or assumptions, is a priority which must be done while accepting great risk to one's self at the time of choosing. If the man had simply been allowed to sleep it off and then questioned when he tried to leave the scene (put a boot on the car?!?) then he would not have died. This is why you don't allow those who risk their lives to make the decisions about implementing force!

Re: “After Three Years, Oakland Police Release Body-Camera Video of Demouria Hogg Shooting

As I recall the car had been reported involved in a violent crime within the past 24 hours and was being looked for.

Now we find and not "just" an unconscious man in that car. But was an unconscious man with a weapon in plain view and in reach.

Guns DO tend to have a BIT more reach than cameras... That's why people tend to be EXTREMELY cautious about them in uncertain situations.

It's an odds on bet, someone was getting shot in this situation. It was just a question of who.

Re: “Berkeley Reconsiders Controversial Twitter Tactic

Tony,

Doxxing: As younger people slur and gliss words... documenting. Getting the "docs" on... doxxing.

Woke: I'm kewl - I'm awake and aware, but I also want to show I'm not part of "the man's establishment" (remember hippies... I Do).

And I'm 60.

Why not bust the other side and secure the weapon?

Re: “After Three Years, Oakland Police Release Body-Camera Video of Demouria Hogg Shooting

This don't make any damn sense where they confused about what they were coming out for initially they said an unconscious man I don't understand what was all the hostility about and the guns being pulled and then video cameras are not clearly and range but their guns are

Re: “Berkeley Reconsiders Controversial Twitter Tactic

Just curious: what is the etymology of the word "doxxing"? What other word is it referencing, and\or building off of? Without proper context, I can't tell if "doxxing" is good or if it is bad -- or both depending on the context. So, dear EBX editors: please keep in mind that there are 50+ y.o. readers like me who aren't up to speed on all these new phrases and terminologies that have come into use especially after November 2016. (Example: I'm still trying to figure out the curious use of the word "woke" especially via social media. Gramatically, it doesn't seem right: "I am 'woke'). Thank you!

What about video from the officer who smashed the window and those others near him?
