Re: “OPD Cop Caught Making Apparent False Statements After Injury Crash

Bottom line. Can't refute facts, so call names.

So middle school

Re: “Updated: Buffy Wicks Defeats Jovanka Beckles in AD 15

while the RPA makes a LOT of noise and obstructs what it find objectionable , no member of it has EVER taken ANY positive action... No proposals, no legislation... Not even a bill presented.

As the tea party was the right wing party of no, the RPA is an arm of left wing party of no. All the while calling themselves liberal and progressive.

Re: “OPD Cop Caught Making Apparent False Statements After Injury Crash

And now my final, and I DO mean final thoughts on this topic...

Incidents like this are why I stopped riding motorcycles over 55 years ago... I glanced down at the road going by at 50 miles an hour on a fine, bright summery day and realized a mistake on the part of anyone on the road with me, including me, and I got a part in a meat grinder impression with my meat starring between the steel of the bike and the asphalt. Since then, I've seen some bloody ones too. Bikers don't tend to get to walk away.

That was MY choice and I don't regret it.

Nor do I have any bad impressions of those who do ride now. I just say be safe about it.

Re: “Oakland Police Commission Abruptly Fires Executive Director of Its Investigative Agency

I sounds as if the commission has a problem with independent oversight.

This is my surprised face.

Re: “East Bay Green Energy Program Launches Residential Service

Charlie Pine, exactly correct. All of the clean energy providers carry a surcharge as well... Even the clean energy provided via PG&E.

It's an emotional marketing scam.

Re: “OPD Cop Caught Making Apparent False Statements After Injury Crash

Yes TS Edson, he lost his leg AND the city paid him $12 million. Justice? I don't claim to know. I know I wouldn't like to lose my leg. Now EBX/DBG are engaged in whipping up a mob for ends I can't claim to understand.

And If you think verifying things is cold and heartless... Well I call it just plain stupid and brainless to allow others to think for me. If I do, I deserve everything I get.

Someone here called me evil. If facts and truth are evil, so be it. If you'd like to pray for me, that's your choice. Be aware, hitting my knees and begging for what I need from an angry invisible entity that already knows I need what I'm begging for... That's a little too much like dealing with Harvey Weinstein or paying tribute to a mob boss for my tastes. But, who am I to judge.

What I do know is the facts AS PRESENTED jarred me enough for me to take 15 lousy minutes to check them, and they didn't match anything I could find and, in fact what, I did find exactly contradicted them. I couldn't make them match the narrative in any way shape or form. Once that saw that much, the differences stood out more and more.

Evil, as certain literature has to say, needs only the good to stand and do nothing in order to succeed.

I do NOT choose to do nothing.
You can do as you choose as well.

Re: “OPD Cop Caught Making Apparent False Statements After Injury Crash

Allen Paxton, I don't see anywhere in this article that the city paid out 12 million for this issue... perhaps in aggregate for this type of issue, but not this one.

It HAS recently been the recipient of a judgement against it for over 2 million for one of EBX's pet council members... But that's neither here nor there is it?

As I drove this stretch of road this morning, as I do almost every morning, I took a moment to look closely at the reflections in the windows called out in the article... They're the pedestrian crossing signals on the opposing corner! They don't reflect the cross traffic at ALL!

Cop sympathizer? Hardly. But if you're gonna make an accusation, do it right. It makes it all that much harder to make the problems stick.

Maybe your mama told you the story of the little boy who cried wolf?
