Re: “Oakland Police Hold Secret Ceremony Honoring Several Officers Accused of Mishandling Celeste Guap Sex-Crimes Investigation

Libby Schaaf is running for re-election on a platform of transparent responsive trustworthy government: https://libbyformayor.wordpress.com/
And the transparency over the Ghost Ship fire: http://www.mercurynews.com/2017/02/04/edit…
The 2015 State of the City address mentions transparency: http://www2.oaklandnet.com/oakca1/groups/c…
It is one thing to not admit the public, but not admitting the press to document what is going on is not transparent.

What a waste and disgrace. Millions in settlements for police crimes, cover -ups, and court costs and Mayor Schaaf decides to throw more money at bad cops. Oakland foots the bill for a private party for OPD and City Officials. I guess we should be grateful that Libby didn't take the entire police force to Mar-a-Lago.

Re: “Oakland Police Hold Secret Ceremony Honoring Several Officers Accused of Mishandling Celeste Guap Sex-Crimes Investigation

Why would you use the word, "Mishandling", in your headline, about a story, regarding a case of child rape and a police department wide conspiracy to conceal this rape? The police didn't "mishandle" this young girl, as you say here, nor did they mishandle this case. They committed purjury, conspired, and initiated a young under age woman, into selling herself, and also leaked police information about ongoing criminal cases, in exchange for sexual relations. They abused their authority, and this young woman.

Re: “Oakland Police Chief Doubles-Down on Promoting the Cops Who Covered-Up the Celeste Guap Case

And you wonder why protests rise to the levels they do in this city.
Why on earth should anyone respect any rule of law here?
Lead by example.

Re: “How the Oakland Police Department Worked to Cover-Up Sex Crimes and a Home Invasion Committed by Cops

After reading more....Monitor's and Swanson reports and latest EBX coverage, agree with Len.....The OPD culture will never change when OPD supervisory officers become politically untouchable and receive successive promotions.....Very disappointed in new Chief's promotion of Holmgren (bad decisions/actions in Occupy, Cortez and at multiple stages of the O'Brien and Jasmine victimization / sex scandal cases....Chief Kirkpatrick's excuse--Monitor OK'd the promotions, doesn't fly because that approval occurred while Swanson investigation still in progress.....Instead of being revisited, the Lois and Holmgren promotions are being finalized today......

Re: “Oakland Police Commanders Who Buried Sex-Crime Scandal Investigation Were Later Promoted

with body cams and failed internal investigations, it is abundantly clear the police must be policed.

Add the judge to the list of corrupt officials. He could have imposed much harder penalties, since he's retiring next month and won't have to live with the consequences. Instead, he scolds the city and, basically, lets it continue its disgraceful conduct.

Re: “Federal Judge Orders City of Oakland to Fix Internal Affairs and Criminal Investigations of Police Misconduct

Burris is a hypocrite. He supported a totally frivolous civil suit against my father and I costing us about 130K when a person who borrowed money from us sued after breaching the loan contract AND defaulting. He's no Robin-hood. My father and I are white and the people who sued us are minority race. They had unlimited resources to pretty much harass us into giving his clients what they wanted.

Re: “Oakland Looks to Close Owner Move-In and Occupancy Loopholes, Reduce Evictions and Harmful Rent Increases

The City's own surveys show that public concerns about housing affordability, displacement and homelessness rank higher than concerns about crime. In which case, the City is actually focusing on issues that are of most concern to Oakland residents.

As for this claim: "many who have had sweetheart rent deals for decades and quite honesty want to keep them for life. That is big motivator for making claims that may not actually be true", what actual documentation do you have that this is widespread?

The vast majority of Oakland renters are paying far more than 30% of their income for rent. That's not a "sweetheart rent deal".

Re: “Who Will Be There When You Call 911? Our Writer Plunges Into the World of For-Profit Ambulances.

It is such a broken system- where are the policy makers? Where are the voters demanding a working system? This is one of so many broken systems in Alameda County- take your pick- but I do wonder what the policy makers @$100K + a year actually do.

Re: “Oakland Looks to Close Owner Move-In and Occupancy Loopholes, Reduce Evictions and Harmful Rent Increases

I would want to see actual documentation concerning these alleged evictions. There is no actual proof presented in the article, just allegations by people, many who have had sweetheart rent deals for decades and quite honesty want to keep them for life. That is big motivator for making claims that may not actually be true.

The city council seems hell bent on attacking property owners and private property rights by passing anti property owner laws, which I believe are unconstitutional. They just keep adding on more rules, more laws. Pretty soon most landlords are going to sell their properties because it won't be worth the trouble.

Given the high crime rates, gangs and drug problems in Oakland you would think they could be using their time to tackle the really important safety issues that have plagued Oakland for decades.

Re: “Oakland’s New Budget — What’s in it for the Arts?

It is true that the Kaplan/Brooks budget did cut police officers and did not fully fund the fire inspectors requested by the mayor, and claimed to expand arts grants, but it wasn't a balanced budget and could not legally pass. This article glosses over a very complex subject to provide only one, narrow point of view laden with misinformation - which seems to be the EBX MO these days.

Re: “Federal Judge Orders City of Oakland to Fix Internal Affairs and Criminal Investigations of Police Misconduct

One wonders exactly what the Mayor and City Administrator spend their publicly-financed time doing.

Especially in the light of the Mayor's campaign promise to make public safety the number one priority. That means making OPD work in every aspect of policing, including that small thing we call ethics.

Should we assume that the Mayor hired her pal as City Administrator because they both were fundamentally committed to improved public safety and police reform?

Or should we assume that both the Mayor and her Administrator live on Mars?

Sounds like this is a "fox watching the henhouse" situation to me.
