Re: “Vast New Bay Area Bike-Share Program Is Everywhere ... Except Deep East Oakland

"I'm for putting bike share stations all over Oakland."

Uh huh. The "sharing" economy is all about sharing.

Sorry pal. "Sharing" is simply the current form of discrimination.
Poorer folks will not benefit. Richer folks will.

> . If someone made a honest mistake or clerical error is much different from attempted concealment.

It's pretty clear that when police supervisors heard, from Guap, that possible sexual misconduct was being committed by OPD officers, instead of investigating this immediately they tried to ignore it as hard as possible. This is not an honest mistake or clerical error.

Just because of the actions of a few doesnt make the whole bunch rotten. I know a few Oakland cops... good people. If someone made a honest mistake or clerical error is much different from attempted concealment. If the feds found no crime than why is the media? If they want a ceremony without media... who cares. Meanwhile lets talk about all the crime and shootings that arent cop related.

Re: “Vast New Bay Area Bike-Share Program Is Everywhere ... Except Deep East Oakland

I'm for putting bike share stations all over Oakland. If bikeshare stations had been placed in East Oakland, the east bay express would have written an article that the forces of gentrification are using bikes to colonize East Oakland.

Re: “Vast New Bay Area Bike-Share Program Is Everywhere ... Except Deep East Oakland

Anyone who has visited East Oakland knows that there are lots of adult bicycle riders there who depend on bicycles for basic transportation.

Unfortunately good old racist bias every step of the "community involvement" process overlooked the real needs of Oakland's most neglected neighborhood.

The whole rideshare notion is, it seems to me, designed to serve the privileged--people who have credit cards and computers and smart phones and a preference for bicycles painted in trendy pastels.

Onward and upward with the upper classes!

Re: “Rising Rents Threaten to Displace Oakland Nonprofits

Well Vince, this is a country founded on meritocracy and the notion that private property is the cause of income inequality, which they profess, is just pure hogwash! Housing attorneys making big bucks off of property control is not right. And please before you go on to any rants about prop 13 or whatever, ponder this people who own property put up risk capital to purchase it whether it is a home or a piece of investment property. These orgs want to nullify that.

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

Again, the City of Oakland bumbles on accountability. How long will we have to live with a corrupt police department? What happened to the promise of commiunity policing as well? When will we get another mayor that we can be proud of and stand behind? Shameful! Can't wait for the next election, Schaff will be receiving her walking papers from me. Are our city leaders taking notes from "45?" How dare you exclude the press from an event they have always been welcome too?

To the two blame the victim commenters. How dare you? These officers abused their authority and should not be rewarded. I don't get your arguments.

This young girl was a hooker a whore who sold her body for money. Not saying there not a fault for passing her around & making there departments look like a bunch of perverted tricks with badges & guns, but why isn't anyone going after her for choosing to be a hoe? Her parents are Or were both police dispatchers so she could of made better choices. She had sex with these dudes got paid & then snitched on them. She wrong for that.

Garry Ovalbach, how very shameful of you. You will never say that face-to-face to the victims of these criminals.

Many of you who gripe about OPD must remember that when and if you have an emergency, the very people you trash talk will be the first ones you call.

Secret would seem to imply no one knew it was happening. It's obvious people knew it was happening. Closed might be better phrasing.

Re: “El Jarro Mexican Cafe

I judge Mexican restaurants by their Chili Rellenos, and they are simply the BEST at El Jarro!! Get ready with a serving of soup, hearty and flavorful, while soaking in the atmosphere and decor. Feels like home, even to this Anglo, longing for past memories in the Gulf.

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

So the Mayor publicly shames the cops for screwing and being johns unto a minor, however goes in secret, to give honors to those same officers? Lol, in a church, where the good book reads "all things done in the dark, come into light"....What book are they swearing in on, lmao. Cockroaches they all are. The real victims are the young lady, the wives and families of the horny mid life crisis ass officers and the city of Oakland's citizens.
