Re: “The East Bay's Tow Hustle

It's appears the ONLY illegalities are from the tow companies!!! These people all filed complaints and got their money returned.

Re: “You're Not a Progressive If You're Also a NIMBY

Anybody who believes that President Trump meant it when he talked about building a wall along the Mexican border is too dumb to even be commenting on it. You know, these so-called 'Progressives' should be careful what they wish for. I mean, what do you want to do? Go to war? How the hell can you win a war when most you don't even have guns?? More proof that Progressivism is a mental illness.

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

They may have made the decision t come from the driver side to immediately grad him after busting the window, rather than have him move towards the gun freely if from the other side. Also, they had to be very cautious when approaching him because you never know what someone is going to do in a hostile situation like this...especially just waking up from the effects of who knows what.
I thought the officers attempt to wake him with bean bags was a good idea. I know the last thing they wanted to do was approach that car.

Re: “General Electric Plans To Demolish East Oakland Factory. But Residents Want More Than A Polluted, Vacant Lot

LMAO. GE is close to bankruptcy right now, it's stock is selling the lowest point in decades. They don't have the money to pay their own rent and pensions.

Re: “The East Bay's Tow Hustle

you know what you are doing, I feel for those who get ripped off, But here's the THING WHY RISK IT, People park where it is clearly stated DO NOT PARK HERE YOU WILL BE TOWED. Unless you can't read, then it's on YOU. Ever been cussed out by letting someone know their car will be towed.

Re: “Federal Judge Blocks Oakland from Removing Homeless Camp

Thanks Judge. You have turned my beautiful Oakland into a SF wannabe. Every day at Lake Merritt I get to see the refuse, tents, trash, and fecal matter from your friends.

Re: “Federal Judge Blocks Oakland from Removing Homeless Camp

Charlie - we did not establish the encampment at e12 &23rd ave. we were offered the land by the administration after city council unanimously voted to do so. but rather than move forward with us in good faith, the administration (without talking to us) herded 6 encampments from five neighborhoods. members of these encampments were in deep crisis and had life long and even intergenerational tensions between each other. and rather than stop the herding, OPD has continued to pick up individual homeless folks and dump them on the land with the threat that id they leave they will be arrested. the land is over crowded and we were never allowed the opportunity to have control of the site nor the opportunity to build up our program there. but what we have done over the past year was attempt to stop people from killing each other, advocate fro the residents of that encampment for basic sanitation services (with the mayor herself has refused), provide food & water, be first responders to murders and fires, get people to their doctors appointments and court dates. none of us get the six digit salaries of the city officials who's job it actually is to serve or as they like to say "manage" the encampment. we are all volunteers and man of us are homeless ourselves. your angers correct, but please direct it to the people responsible for the horrific and inhumane conditions the unhoused residents at east12 have been forced to endure and the impact it has had on the surrounding community. due to their ill faith and ill fated actions the administration has been pushed by city council to grant us a new parcel of land on miller ave where we will be actually be manifesting out vision of an emergency shelter village with services.if you are interested in getting involved with our volunteer efforts at e12 or any of the services and advocacy we provide at 40 encampments thorough Oakland feel free to contact me 510-355-7010. in fact there will be a all volunteer and all community paid trash clean up at the e 12th site tomorrow starting at 9 am and again on Saturday at 10am as the city does not take care of the massive encampment it created

Re: “Pro-Tenant and Pro-Housing

Sour grapes. Buffy trounced Jovanka because she was the far superior candidate on many levels. The money angle is the only thing Beckles supporters could come up with because their candidate lacked the ability to grasp and address complex policy issues, and was deeply flawed personally, as shown by the comments of her fellow councilmembers and the fact that her own mayor wouldnt endorse her. We in Richmond are SO GLAD to be rid of Beckles and her mean spirited divisiveness. Thank you, voters in AD15.

Re: “The East Bay's Tow Hustle

The actions of PPI sound both legally wrongful and mean spirited.

We should also note that if you park in a stores private lot and then go shopping elsewhere, you are being abusive. This is not ok. If someone parked in my driveway to visit someone else, I would have them towed in a heartbeat.

It takes a lot of nerve to park in someones driveway or block it. So, why is it ok to park in someone elses private lot out of your personal convenience and Ill founded assumption that the behavior is ok?

They had no excuse including it was only going to be for 30 minutes. Sounds like discount city has been abused by freeloaders and chose to do something about it. That is not victimizing of the freeloaders - Discount City is not allowing itself to be victimized.

Re: “Federal Judge Blocks Oakland from Removing Homeless Camp

Before taking over Brookfield Village, we are told, "many of the same activists established the camp on a vacant city-owned lot in Fruitvale" - specifically, 12th St. at 23rd Ave. That huge mess was the site of two serious fires and a homicide within eight weeks. Instead, we are asked to focus on the exception, poster-child litigants who describe themselves as clean and sober women and children. Is it a constitutional right to run hazardous electricity and conduct hazardous cooking operations and to shoot 'em up?

Re: “Pro-Tenant and Pro-Housing

The suggestion that Buffy Wicks is pro-tenant, and the repeating of the lie about Jovanka Beckles, might be funny under different circumstances. Unfortunately, AD-15 was purchased by a feckless corporate lackey who is going to use us as her springboard to higher office. Hopefully someone is getting ready to primary her in the next electoral cycle.
