Re: “How to Fix the Police

My bad. It's Walden Pond books that will have Norm's books for sale on sight where he will be signing them.

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

To garry ovalbach and charlie pine, you're wrong. There are many Oaklanders who will not call the police because they have been abused by police in the past. And that, exactly, is the point--we cannot trust the police to be even-handed and honest. They simply are not trustworthy. Nor, now, is our mayor.

Re: “Report: Berkeley Police Six-Times More Likely to Use Force Against Black People

We should remember that every time we push back against the police, they get meaner. They're not going to admit to anything.

Re: “Craig & MacGregor & Friends

This is one of the best deals in town. All you can eat from Bacheesos in Berkeley for $5 and listen to great music from the best Jazz/Soul/Blues band on any Wednesday anywhere!

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

The people who design plan and programs to accelerate our ascent to Amsterdam are totally out of touch with the needs and desires of neighborhoods of color. They have no clue and actually dismiss the fact that not everybody in the world leads their lives by smart phones, laptops, Starbucks and Uber. They don't understand that when they have those obligatory "community meetings" in deep East Oakland, turnout may be sparse because some folks have 2 or 3 jobs and get up early because they work for low pay. Some folks have no child care options. Some folks are too busy just keeping the lights on and food on the table. Some folks lack adequate safe transportation. Spending 2 or 3 evening hours during the week at a meeting about a bicycle program is just not a life priority. In some neighborhoods, adults who use bikes fall into 2 main groups. Group one are the folks you see riding to low paying jobs in the early mornings every day. Group two are the guys who provide underground retail opportunities in the neighborhoods. In some places, hardly anyone rides bikes because they are seen as a pleasant recreational option. Some people don't have an extra $5 a day for a bike ride. If you want an effective program, you need to talk to the people and figure out what works for them. You can't force fee your pinhead utopian dreams into their daily reality.
