Re: “The A’s Must Hang on to Young Talent

Beane Cult members are mostly more baseball rotisserie players than actual baseball fans...revolving door will always be working as long as Billy Boy is the fantasy A's baseball team.

Re: “Nextdoor Lead Silences Police Complaints

NextDoor Promotes Cyber Bullying and Hate Crimes

Next-door allowed my neighbors to cyber bully me online and use the site for public shaming. They allowed them to post my personal information leading to the endangerment of me and my children.
A neighbor posted false complaints on the site to publically shame a person they think they saw in a car on the road doing something they did not approve of and then posted the description with license plate number of the car.
Within a few days of hateful messages and public shaming. An original post was made by Mona Smothers, Christian Valley Park on Nov 2 in Crime & Safety to Christian Valley Park She listed a description of my car and listed my license plate to make false allegations of a dangerous hateful nature online.

This is considered public shaming and against the rules. After she posted my license plate number online and started false accusations creating a hateful conversations and public shaming about activities in a car.
I had people following my car and yelling at me and my kids in public for something I had NO IDEA about because this neighbor created such a hateful post it created a situation where people would see my car and stalk me or yell at me for things she accused someone in my car of doing online. These people have made me and my kids a target in the neighborhood with their claims and false accusations by posting my person information online. I did not know about the post until some stranger approached me and my children because he saw the post made with the false accusations and my license plate listed in her post. They identified me by the license plate number posted. They approached me and my kids about it inappropriately because they saw my license plate number posted online and now know where we live.
Creating now a dangerous situation for me and my family. I am now a target because my license plate is out there with someones angry post making false accusations and my kids are subjected hate or opinions.
This is not allowed according to the rules of Next-door but they did nothing to help my family and instead continue to allow the cyber bullying and hate crimes to continue online.
I am now a target of hate because of the posted license plate online with self-righteous opinions identifying me, my car and can be followed home or anywhere I go now. T

This is a dangerous world and a license plate or identifying factors in false accusations can be harmful to the safety of our families in our neighborhood. Public shaming on any social network is NOT allowed and the world outside of Next-door is a dangerous place.
Next door did nothing to correct this issue, and then froze my account for complaining about the abuse, public shaming and illegal posts made by the neighbor posting my personal information online. They allowed me and my children to be harmed and stalked and cyber bullied. They are bad people and should be shut down so nobody else gets hurt or is victimized by them. I take cyber bullying very seriously and NEXT DOOR did nothing to help my family.

Re: “The A’s Must Hang on to Young Talent

Hes at worst the teams third-best hitter and earns the MLB minimum salary. Huh?

According to Baseball Prospectus, Healy in 2017 was the 9th best of the remaining A's hitters. He doesn't have a position in the field where he's not a liability. Moving him now makes perfect sense, while he still might bring something in return.

I think homeless lives matter too, but what's the point in featuring a crumpled Steel Reserve can in the lead photo? Is to highlight the need for substance abuse programs for the homeless or to demonize them as layabout winos?

Re: “I Was Kicked Out of Federal Immigration Court — Because I'm a Journalist

Federal Court systems have changed so much. People have rights! As a former Immigration Inspector - the Federal Judges I observed went over the acknowledgement of rights: Form I-826. It appears Judges in the San Francisco District have their own set of standards vice What Is Written. My wife had the misfortune of being in front of Immigration Judge Anthony S. Murry. He denied my Waiver Form I-601. """ I'm a United States Citizen. Decorated U.S.Marine Corps First Sergeant", with 21 years Service. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend my wife's hearing, but an Attorney did. She informed me, that Judge Murry denied 9 out of 9 cases. I WILL STOP NOW, BECAUSE I DO NOT WANT TO GET MILITANT.

Re: “Complaint Filed Against Oakland Police Chief for False Statements

I saw a young woman in Oaxacan dress walking up Fruitvale with an ICE ankle monitor, broke my heart.

Shame on Chief Kirkpatrick for helping Trump and ICE to terrorize our friends and neighbors. Immigrants contribute more to this Oakland than Captain KIrkpatrick ever will. This is bullying, not policing.

Re: “Entire Oakland City Council Declined to Cross Union Picket Line for Mayor Schaaf's State of the City Speech

Based on the City's response to my August 2017 public record request for a recent salary survey of all city employees, at least the SEIU 21 job categories covered by the survey are under-compensated. The survey did not cover compensation for fire and police.

https://oaklandwiki.org/City_govt_wage_sur…

Without a full copy of the survey, it's hard to evaluate the objectivity or accuracy of the survey. Several years ago the City posted a comprehensive survey that showed most City employees were at the top of the pay chart for the Bay Area. It no longer looks that way.

We need the City to post a full, comprehensive compensation survey. if they don't have one, the City should pay for one so we all know what the situation is.

Some of the city unions have staff that know the city's budget details better than many city staffers. If the city unions have figured out what costs we could cut without cutting important services, they should tell us. If they know that the city has to raise fees, sales tax, business tax, and parcel taxes, they should give us that info also.

If the city unions want to play the traditional union vs employer strategies of strikes, sickouts, and slow-downs, they're going to lose the support of city residents

Re: “California Traffic Tickets Amnesty Program Leaves Many Behind

DMV is a corporation and when getting your license you sign away your right granted by the constitution for a privilege , giving the police, DMV , & the court system the authority to take away your privilege . Pull you over , arrest and charge you w a crime ,turning into ridiculous tickets and fines, That end up unpaid cause they want more than you pay for rent in most cases. The people are clueless that they have giving their right away and DMV and our government has gotten away w it for so long and made so much money they want to keep the facade going and they will unless we stop them. People need to educate themselves on this matter so we can stop them from destroying peoples lives , I mean when you take a mans/womans vehicle you take their means of getting to and from where they need to go whether it be a doctor , a job , school , everything we do these days requires a vehicle pretty much unless u live , work , shop, and all ur bills and medical care is in the same vicinity, which just isn't the case for anyone. The police are bullies that intimidate , threaten and physically abuse sometimes kill people because our government trains them to do this to their fellow man! Unless you have money and by money I mean middle class upper middle or the elites of our society your screwed all the lower class folks and people struggling to make it by get railroaded and lose their ability to care for themselves let alone a family cause of a constituted right they trick us into signing away for a privilege !

Here's a list of Total Pay Package for all city of Oakland employees. If this doen't tick you off, then gosh. They are milking the city of money, while majority of Oaklanders are making half their salary package. https://transparentcalifornia.com/salaries…

Re: “Entire Oakland City Council Declined to Cross Union Picket Line for Mayor Schaaf's State of the City Speech

Have you seen how much so many city employees are making, most are making over 100K per year, way above what majority of Oaklanders make, and here they are trying to shut down the city at the expense of tax payers who earn way less. Fire them all Libby and hire new ones.
