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

We are advised to focus on "the nearly $100 million the City has had to pay on police misconduct settlements and Court losses since the NSA went into effect." Indeed, why did the City capitulate to an NSA when none of the so-called Riders police were ever convicted? Why does city attorney Barbara Parker get to accept the maximum legal campaign donation from attorney John Burris and then tell the city council again and again to pay out settlements to him and his clients without ever fighting his extortions in a courtroom? And how much money was paid like this: "A lady I knew bragged that her brother had been selling drugs on West Oakland streets since he was 16. His jaw was broken by a rival dealer, but he blamed OPD and got a nice little settlement to expand his operations." ( http://www.eastbaytimes.com/2017/06/25/opi… )

Hopefully Tony Serra will reveal the true criminal enterprise that politics in the city of Oakland have become over the past 30 years in his presentation as he represents his client in the "Ghost Ship" fire case.
The homelessness issue in Oakland is part of a plan. Were it not for the 8,000 homeless people being herded from place to place in Oakland, there wouldn't be a need for a police commission.
The City of Oakland could get enough money from Wells Fargo to solve all of it's problems but the conflicts of interest run so deep that Libby Schaaf would be putting her political career at risk to pressure the bank for the money to resolve the problem...
The story is on Facebook pages titled, Real Estate Crisis or Government Sanctioned Racketeering?
There is also a book titled "Ghost Ship, Eliminating Poverty In America"

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!

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

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.

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

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: “Naming Names: These Officers Are Responsible for the Failed Oakland Police Sex Scandal Investigation

Great article and follow-on reporting. And, believe me, there are good cops and great cops on the Oakland Police Dept. You just don't hear about them because they do their jobs and serve the city the way they're supposed to. And the pieces of crap who disgrace those of us who wore the badge proudly...well, who needs 'em.

Re: “Naming Names: These Officers Are Responsible for the Failed Oakland Police Sex Scandal Investigation

Sorry, Peter, but we do in fact need cops... We just need good ones, not the trash Oakland has had since at least the days of Jerry Brown (and probably before).

How do we get them when the corruption flows all the ways from the citizens? I just don't know. As long as "I gotta get mine" is operating here, I suspect this will repeat over an over. As long as EBX and the rest of the press (the third estate) sock puppets for the corrupt politicians, we'll never get a straight story.

As satisfying as it might seem to march on city hall with "pitchforks and torches", it's not particularly useful. Nor is "throw the bums out!" (politicians).

We just get a new set and have no idea what they're up to until the mess explodes all over again and the sock puppets cozy up to the new trough to feed off of the slop, telling only the part of the story the keeps the slop flowing.

We do not and never did need cops. They are carbuncles on the body politic.

Re: “Yelp and the Business of Extortion 2.0

Yelp is an evil company, they were so stupid on the way they manage their company, money first, careless about anything else. If you don't listen to what they are asking for or don't do a highly cost ad with them, they will do everything that they can in order to destroy your business, by showing all the bad reviews and filter all the good reviews, just like what they did with Massinos pizza. They even go on Google and spend a lot of money in order to try to take business from you and send it to your competition using EAT24.com which they bought couple years ago (evil doing and unfair to any human beings).

It is just a matter of time for Yelp to be sued and that is the only way for the CEO to stop this evil work.

Yelp came alive by paying people to go eat at all restaurants if that person puts a review on Yelp, and after few years and after they fed a lot of people, and managed every review on Yelp (filter what ever review they want and show what ever they want for any particular business), then they start calling all business and ask them to put ads on Yelp in order to get more business (which a lot of business did go for but others were disadvantaged if they couldn't afford to pay for a costly ad on Yelp).

Yelp advertising team call us multiple time (at least once a week for the last 3 years) asking us to put ad on Yelp in order to get more business and they will improve Masinos rating on Yelp, but we couldn't afford it (asking for at least $300/month contract), but I told them that I gave you my business website through EAT24.com where they were generating an average of $760 (online ordering processing fees through our website, just in 2016, we processed over $70000, and Yeld received 10 % of that ($7000), but still not happy. Then, they stopped calling, and they started the evil work online, by filtering all good reviews and showing mostly nasty reviews.

Then in 2017, I noticed the online ordering through our website was declining because EAT24 is redirecting our customers to their APP where they show the Yelp rating (only 2.5 stars but on Google we have 3.5 stars, tripadviser 4 stars, etc), I started calling them in order to ask why sales are declining, and explained that one of the reason is the Yelp low rating, and when they redirect to their website and showing other business with higher rating than Massinos, of course the sales will decline. EAT24 couldn't do anything of course, just because Yelp is in charge, and yelp wanted more money from us.

So I had to close EAT24 account, and switched our website to Menufy, which in just 2 months, sales were tripled.

Then EAT24 were so upset, they started that evil work just like Yelp, by trying everything in order to take business from Massinos and give it to our competition which are signed up with EAT24/Yelp.

Is this how a bad company (EAT24/YELP) operates, when they lose some business, they need to work harder in order to make that customer very upset, or they will work very hard and understand the issues that led to the lost of business and try harder to get it that business back. Stupid thinking and reactionsfrom EAT24/Yelp.

YELP/EAT24 = EVIL COMPANY = EVIL DOING

Re: “Berkeley City Council to Consider Four Different Plans to Tackle Homelessness Crisis

This article is very misleading because it lacks detail.
At the end of the day there are some very obvious reasons why the proposal does not adequately address the problem.
1.) Homeless people were not included in the discussion or development of this proposal. IT is all based on assuming what homeless people want and not the reality of need.
2. It is ridiculous to continually speak of building shelters and not low income or no income housing.
3. This proposal is an expansion of the homeless services industry. It only provides some with very temporary escape from the sidewalk. What it does do is create more paid staff positions none of which are available to the homeless
4. The dollar amount spoken of is above and beyond what is already being spent mainly on providing temporary or emergency shelter
5. In a scathing critique of the pathways proposal it is clear that homeless people are not going to voluntarily be warehoused in a koncentration kamp setting
6. The City in a sideways manner admits there is no funding source for this proposal. It is all a wish and a prayer
7. There is no location that has been identified or committed to this proposal
