Re: “You Won't Be Able to Take Your Eyes Off of 'Unfriended: Dark Web'

Is this horror show about what Fakebook staffers do to blow off steam when they are not busy handling government clients? Scary indeed.

Re: “The Firing of Captain Mark Gagan

This compelling story should be made into a screenplay to maximize distribution and impact. Changes in society and improvements in the accessibility of data are enabling the ability to more easily see the gap between trust, transparency and accountability, and leadership and reward. Understanding and communicating the problem are critical first steps. Then, action must be taken to correct injustice and fraud to protect our citizens.

Re: “Will Oakland Become First U.S. City To Ditch Wall Street And Establish A Public Bank?

I want Wall Street's role in the overall global economy to be less than it is today. It would be great to eliminate them from Oakland altogether.

However, Oakland has frequent management and corruption problems and may not be capable of managing a bank. If Wall Street isn't held accountable why would the Oakland bank be any different?

Re: “Bay Area Activists Protest Peter Thiel's Partnership With Immigration and Customs Enforcement

As a wise sage from the 20th century suggested, "the media is the message". And the message here is that the media you are using is creating data that is being used for someone else's profit and, in some cases, against you and your interests. Take action and disconnect from Fakebook, Pay Pal, Amazon, iTunes, etc.

Re: “VAMP Record Shop in Oakland Celebrates Fourth Anniversary

It is amazing how almost any smallish business like Vintage Art and Music for the People are obligated to use Fakebook for publicity. It is even more amazing that the Express puts that fact on the front page of the story.

Re: “Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf on President Trump: 'Move Beyond Anger to Action'

Rob Appledorn's many comments are escalating in vitriol and have nothing to do with the mayor of Oakland.

Re: “Law Enforcement Killed 90 Oakland Residents Since 2000, And 74 Percent Were Black

The NRA and gun manufactuers and their investors love it when the civilian and police body count rises. 2016 Orlando and Dallas massacres led to surges in gun stocks. A beautiful day for captialism can be a sad day for humanity. They hope we stay focused on blaming the police or blaming the poor and mentally ill, they need us to remain distraced from root cause as long as possible.
