Re: “The Return of the Crematorium

Gary Patton, I don't usually agree with you but in this instance it's one hundred percent agreement.

EBX and it's staff have become every bit as bad (and the reporting as poor) as the old Hearst organs. The only thing missing is "Remember the Maine!"

Re: “Highland Hospital Surveillance Stirs Concerns

By the way, from the photo, the LPR appears to be on hospital property. As the article notes, the Hospital put it in. They know about it, just as they know about the officer at the previously mentioned wards (and main entrance) who take an image of all visitors IDs. Interestingly enough, no one collects ID information at check in to the ER... Where people ACTUALLY SEEK TREATMENT.

Oh wait... Are we saying Mike Katz-Lacabe was unaware of that? Or is it just not as emotionally charged? Fact checking much?

Re: “Highland Hospital Surveillance Stirs Concerns

Probably for the same reason that all visitors to the maternity and pediatric wards are ID checked and signed in.

This is true of every hospital I've visited in the past 10 years. It's not unique to Highland.

Yet again DBG and EBX engages in rabel rousing demagoguery.

Re: “Friday’s Briefing: OUSD Overspent by Millions on Admin and Consultants; Half of Bay Area Renters Are ‘Economically Burdened’

RE: OUSD... Follow the money connections. Those consultants and administrators? Who are the connected to? Who did they contribute to.

Welcome to the Tammany Hall.

Re: “Despite Canceled Hearing, Oakland Councilmembers Still Plan to Talk About Controversial ICE Raid

So... Hoffer filed an internal affairs complaint (potentially a criminal investigation), and somehow expected that to occur in public? Are ANY criminal investigations conducted in public?

I have an extremely difficult time thinking this official failed to consider this or was so clueless as to expect it.

What this LOOKS like is transparency theater (appearing to be transparent while preforming actions that will in fact obscure what's going on)... With EBX and DBG as either dupes or complicit in the cover up by encouraging the activities that trigger confidential handling.

Innocent until proven guilty... Not in the court of EBX.

Re: “Oakland Council Approves Giant Oak Knoll Project, But Without Affordable Housing or a Project Labor Agreement for Most Construction Workers

...Riiiight!!! Delay the vote and keep new housing off the inventory so the housing crisis worsens.

Got to love them!
