Re: “Mobility and Equity

Prove to us that the companies are actually enforcing the policies that keep pedestrians, the disabled members of the community, and the riders safe. Laws and EULAs and policies have yet to curb the bad behavior of selfish riders who consistently ride the sidewalks, park obstructively, and expect the right of way to be ceded whenever they want it to be. Prove that the companies are making real efforts to deal with this behavior and maybe you'll end up with something other than a dystopian transportation nightmare.

Fantastic story. So happy for her, and for me, as I loved Cam Huong!

Re: “Mobility and Equity

So Oakland is getting it right because anecdotally the author and some Oakland administrator thinks so (anecdotally).
SF is getting it wrong because the data says so.

Re: “Mobility and Equity

"Right" as defined exactly how...

I'm getting bloody tired of having them come at me, against traffic in the lane I'm driving in, weaving across lanes in and out of traffic and my all time favorite, doing all of the above in the dark with no lights.

They make bike riders look almost responsible.

Re: “The Warriors Attempt to Reverse Their Legal Losing Streak

I'm down with Council President Kaplan. Trying to stick ALL the residents of Oakland/Alameda County with a $40 million debt for renovations made solely to benefit the Warriors is despicable. Especially since the Warrior owners are filthy rich and they just dumped Oakland/Alameda County like a bad date despite fierce fan loyalty during all those years the Warriors sucked. Very disappointing that Warrior owners are showing the same crass disloyalty recently exhibited by Diva D-Bag Durant.

Re: “Tuesday’s Briefing: PG&E recently identified 10,000 problems with its equipment; Kamala Harris raised nearly $12 million last quarter

East Bay Express has no coverage of unsheltered encampment evictions in progress at 85th and Edes and planned eviction /dispersal of Home Depot encampment.

SF Professor Tony Sparks recent research, Reproducing Disorder-The Effects of Broken Window Policing on Homeless People with Mental Illness, in the Journal of Social Justice seems very appropriate for the EBX.

Re: “Flint’s BBQ Is Coming Back to the Town

Back in the 90s, I was blessed to have lived on Alcatraz, around the corner from Flint's North Oakland take out. Often the heavenly scent of brisket being lovingly barbecued would waft through my window. Glad to see them back! Now if they would only open up a new location near the Lake...

Re: “Opinion: Why Building Housing Near Mass Transit Promotes Collectivism

Interesting, when did the desire to have a bit of breathing room become "capitalistic" ? and why is it better to live in confined spaces with others, forced to travel on buses and subways ? Clearly "extreme individualism" is bad in the author's view, is it better to be reliant on government and society ? where has that sort of reliance ever worked to the advantage of humans ?

Re: “Santa Rita Inmate Suffocated From Restraints Used by Deputies

I was housed there with Juan (may Allah bless his spirit) and there needs to be a thorough investigation into the Santa Rita jail. From the scorching hot infamous BEANS and "meat sauce" that we're expected to scarf down and accept the painful burns from the overcooking the dinner trays endured.The month it takes to see a nurse for even psychological issues. The misclassification of inmates who have psych problems and end up housed with gp and ultimate pose a threat to the rest of the population is becoming more and more of a potentially dangerous issue. Santa Rita is in violation of numerous laws and rules and unfortunately there are multiple situations that fall under the same category as that of my friend Dejuan Armstrong. Santa Rita sheriff's office and medical staff are unscrupulous in their tactics and don't mind forging documents to benefit their motives however so it be in their best interest.If possible I'd like to be able to make known to the public what is most oftentimes muted outside of the walls of the institution.

Re: “That Old Gas Stove Is Not Your Friend

Also, I think the city of Berkeley should look into the feasibility of banning the release of intestinal gas. Perhaps a bond issue could be floated to provide public dispensaries for Bean-O or similar products.

It's worth looking into!

Re: “That Old Gas Stove Is Not Your Friend

I dunno, but I like cooking with gas. Makes better food for reasons known only to those who actually cook I guess. Readers of this rag must dine out or order in a lot. Judging from the content and ads.

Why not ban SUVs? Going to much smaller cars and bicycles makes more sense to me than messing with the environmental damage caused by my woking and baking.

Re: “Disappeared in Death

Josh was being used and abused sexually by an old man. The man was done with Josh and wanted him to find him another young both to molester. Josh had the gun for protection. From this man. Maybe if y'all know truth you wouldn't be so judgemental. Maybe you should find the man that used and abused him sexually, tormented him fed him drugs. Made I'm steal. No body deserves that.

Re: “Disappeared in Death

Wow so sad to hear this. Josh was one of the first people I met when I move to America from England. He had a home but never wanted to meet cerfew and some what felt issolated as there was a new little brother. Hed walk thestreet where I used to live on little Paige in Fredericksburg. He was not healthy in his mind but wanted more to he clean. We somewhat dated hung out for a bit but realized I couldn't help like I wanted to. Iv heard Asad story from friends into what really happened and why he had a gun. Josh was harmless. A sweetheart. He was a good kid. Then ell of a sudden he stopped showing up, walking down my street and i never saw him again. That was in 2004.
REST UR SOUL in PEACE now Josh yourfinally at
Love you Josh. Wished u stuck around.

Re: “This Is Not An Emergency — It's Just Oakland 911

The City government under two different Mayors and multiple City Administrators on several occasions have promised us vast improvements in 911 call answering time (not response time). They alternate excuses between not having the money to replace their systems and not being able to hire dispatchers.

Just because there has been civic amnesia from the massive dismantling of local journalism, multiple City Auditors who ignore it, and a vast turnover of residents, don't let the City officials act like this something new.

Re: “This Is Not An Emergency — It's Just Oakland 911

Actually, TDD access to 911 services is mandated by federal law. The mandate was demanded by deaf/hard of hearing advocates. So it's not a "choice" on the part of the city. It's an absolute requirement. Given the costs associated with provisioning SMS access (and a complete redesign/rebuild of the 911 call center to accommodate it) and lack of funds in Oakland, it's not surprising that SMS isn't supported here (or much of anyplace else for that matter).

I need to point out, the answering system that Dr Heilicser claimed is "unheard of", isn't some "Rube Goldberg", home brew invention "thunk up in Oakland" but a system commercially provisioned by a service equipment provider. That statement is disingenuous at best if he has really been working with 911 systems for 35 years and show that yet again EBX fails miserably at fact checking.

While having the latest technology in emergency services is a wonder thought, so are unicorns, elves, and small fuzzy animals for all... And not very practical.

Until EVERYONE pays their fair share (taxes), there just isn't money for all of the neat thing we want. I don't know of anyone who works for free; Doesn't want a decent wage.

Re: “Flint’s BBQ Is Coming Back to the Town

I used to work swing shift at Rolls-Royce in Oakland and one day I picked up my lunch from Flints in Berkeley. When I got to work. Day shift was mad at me cause all they could smell was the BBQ it had the whole shop smelling like BBQ from one dinner. Some of my co-workers threatened me and told me if I ever was going to Flints to call them so I could bring them a dinner.
