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.

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

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.

$16 for a matinee of the new Spiderman movie in Vegas is enough to keep anyone out of the theater.

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?

It's Affleck. Read up on it before you pathetically review it. Clearly you saw a different movie than 99% of the critics who loved it!

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

More business as usual, as the carcass of Oakland is picked by the vultures from every side. Burris and Henderson feast on her, OPD feasts on her, EBE feasts on her, The city bureaucrats and elected "leaders" feast on her, and the poor battered carcass is picked to the bones.

Re: “Rising Rents Threaten to Displace Oakland Nonprofits

Like all resources, office space and housing, are subject to the concept of scarcity. Oakland office space, formerly inexpensive relative to San Francisco, is now in demand. Non profits who have anticipated this sea change either by purchasing their own property OR raising their revenue opportunities will survive regardless of their missions and clients.

As an Oakland homeowner I'd prefer my city to invest their funds in street repairs, fire suppression, police, and recreation services for youth and adults. I believe these non profits all have virtue, but the blunt reality is that market forces have made their office spaces more costly, not any conspiracy- real or imagined.

Re: “California Took a Big Step Closer to Regulating the Cannabis Industry

Anyone can grow hemp in California. There are just a few hoops through which one must jump first. Biggest one: finding a researcher who's interested in studying part of the plant you're not interested in growing - or its agroclimactic impacts, suitability as a drought crop; anything where the science doesn't require study of the plant matter itself. Set up a industrial hemp pilot research program at an accredited university. The scientist gets to conduct cutting edge research, and you get all the 'agricultural waste' aka the industrial hemp you want to grow.

In a few years it should be much simpler. But it's possible now if you're willing to put in the effort.

Re: “California Took a Big Step Closer to Regulating the Cannabis Industry

The passage of 64 included the legalization of cannabis as well as hemp just like what Colorado did. I heard California Prop 64 copied the State ballot for Colorado that included the legalization of cannabis and hemp together. Last I heard we are waiting for big brother to give us the rules, regulations and taxes to grow a plant that has over 50,000 uses.

Re: “California Took a Big Step Closer to Regulating the Cannabis Industry

When can California start to grow Hemp like we did here in Los Angeles back in 1860?

Re: “Dan Savage The Sports Writer Comes Off the Bench for Dan Savage the Sex Columnist

OMG!! This is certainly a shocking and a genuine Testimony i have ever
seen..I visited a forum here on the internet on the 20TH OF JUNE 2014,
after my husband separated me and my marriage of 8 years was broken down
and i was totally inconsolable and without hope because i have tried all
means to get my husband back after much pleading and did everything
possible to make sure that he comes back, but nothing worked out for me....
And i saw a marvelous testimony with this email dress

of this powerful and great spell caster called
Dr Akhere on the forum.. And i saw how Dr Akhere reunited a family and
brought the Husband of a woman back to her in just 24 hours..I never
believed it, because i never heard nor learnt anything about magic before..
Not a soul would have been able to influence me about magical spells, not
until Dr Akhere did it for me and restored my marriage of 8 years back to me
and brought my spouse back to me in the same 24 hours just as i read on the
internet..i was truly astonished and shocked when my husband came to my
