Re: “Young Professionals Only? Housemates Accuse Landlord of Rejecting Subtenant Applications in Hopes of Vacating Rent-Controlled Unit.

Lonay paid $160,000 in 2011 and if their rent was nearly $2,000 or is $2,000 now, she nearly has the place paid off. It was owned by the bank then and however much she repaired it, the place is still sounding in disrepair. She cares only for getting back what she paid and then will sell it for three or four times what she paid without repairing anything.

Re: “Young Professionals Only? Housemates Accuse Landlord of Rejecting Subtenant Applications in Hopes of Vacating Rent-Controlled Unit.

When [the unit] was rented, the economy was in the toilet: you were the best applicants, Lonay wrote in an email to her renters. Since the recession, people have put their lives back on track and moved on[.]

What the hell is wrong with this miniature monster Leona Helmsley? Was she raised in a barn? Her parents raised her to talk about people this way?

Well that sucks, congrats and good luck but I don't think we needed another fru fru kale place, especially when good Filipino food was hard to find - gotta serve the gentrifiers though

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

I understand folks here aren't too familiar with facts but blacks and hispanics do commit a disproportionate amount of crime. They also on average have lower IQs. Which means they're incapable of learning and need to be disciplined like children.

Ha.

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

This is a public facing program that ignores half of the city. Cost is a function of design and target customer. How about modeling to higher utilization rates in affluent areas in order to subsidize a few smaller stations in east Oakland. You could also sell group passes at discounted rates to drive adoption. And the safety argument doesn't make sense. People ride bikes all of the time. 15 yrs from now we will question why low income residents in Oakland have higher obesity rates and transportation costs.

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: “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.
