Re: “Oakland Expends Considerable Money and Person-Power Displacing Homeless Residents, According to City Records

Have you ever walked or biked to Montclair? I have. Wanna know why there are no camps there? Try it for yourself. It will become painfully clear why there are no camps.

It's not about there being more enforcement for any reason... It's just too hard to do, so the camps are in the flat lands or West Oakland, deep East Oakland and around the Lake.

It's not a "class" thing, just plain human practicality.

A well written an informative article; listing active suggestions and estimates of costs. This type of reporting informs and educates.

Thank you!

Re: “Video: Oakland's Homeless Residents Are Targets of Arson Attacks

"Homeless Residents Are Targets of Arson Attacks" - your headline is one-sided. The reported incidents indicate that homeless residents engage in arson attacks, too. It is common to see angry disputes at the camps, and apparently some of them escalate.

Re: “Video: Oakland's Homeless Residents Are Targets of Arson Attacks

There are personal beefs and random attacks, just like with people with homes. The recent fires that have killed people in buildings have also been swept aside instead of real prevention strategies like empowering residents to flag and monitor threats. These fires aren't solving any disputes, so conflict management must be addressed.

Re: “Video: Oakland's Homeless Residents Are Targets of Arson Attacks

Thank you for this article and the footage. I work with a organization that works directly with these encampments, and it is disheartening to know people would intentionally destroy peoples lives and attempt to kill them. I would be really nice to see the police investigate this more.
