Re: “Oakland City Council Should Censure Desley Brooks

KKE: you are happy to pay my share of those millions you consider to be just "reality TV." Censuring is a waste of time. She should give us all an early Valentine and resign.

Re: “Opinion: Getting the Shaft From Schaaf

@ atonisson@yahoo.com

Based on family members that work for the state the salary information in Transparent California is correct.

Re: “In Praise of Oakland’s Koreana Plaza

Thank you for highlighting one of the gems of Oakland (and well deserved). We shop there weekly. The owners have done a lot of work to revitalized that part of town.

Re: “As People of Color Disappear from Oakland, So Do My Memories

Maybe you should lobby the company you work for to exercise their power differently: Kapor Center which was started by the principals of Kapor Capital; are major investors in tech (148 companies in total) including angel investors for Uber. The Uber HQ opening next year will bring even more rapid changes to Oakland. I personally don't see this stopping but you should at least recognize who you work for. I also didn't understand this sentence: "I miss greeting strangers as I walk by them in the neighborhood." Who is stopping you from greeting strangers as you walk by them?

Re: “Why Does the Berkeley City Council Care About a Dog Meat Festival in China?

Pigs are smarter and more trainable than dogs. They are even smarter than 3YO humans in cognition tests yet we still torture and eat them. Maybe these "activists" should focus on home fires before telling some other country what to eat.

Re: “Oakland Cops Quietly Acquired Social Media Surveillance Tool

Much ado about nothing here. If users actually bothered to read the privacy policies about data collection including location they might change what they say on these "free" third party services. I see no expectation of privacy if you are shouting what you are doing on one of these public "free" services. These third party services (e.g. FB, Twitter, Instagram, etc.) are nothing but a digital version of being in a town square standing on a soap box and proselytizing passers by. OPD is actually smart to utilize these tools that by the way also happen to be available for anyone to use. I'd be surprised if they were not: It's no different than a cop walking a beat except it's virtual.
