Re: “The Town Strikes Back

This will be interesting to watch. Were I an owner of the A's I'd be saying adios post haste. and the Raiders shouldn't stick around in the broken down stadium.

Re: “Police Commissioners Spar with Oakland Police Department Over Authority to Revise Search Policy

I am confused why wouldn't you search- would the probationer have to show a weapon/ Or a bulge in the waistband must be seen. VincentMora seems right on target. And Rashida I think you're wrong. They're on probation what would be more affirming if you are stopped, frisked and have nothing but a bunch of pay stubs from your job that created that bulge. and a blanket must be searched means no discrimination. Same treatment for all.

Re: “Alameda Sheriff Accused of Violating State Sanctuary Law

I see at least 2 issues with this and cannot wait to see it litigated.
1. Isn't this a free speech issue? How can this speech be prohibited?- the deputy or anyone can call ICE.
2. If Manafort & Cohen can be prosecuted for "extraneous" crimes (and democrats are in favor of this) why if in the investigation of this case this woman is found to be an illegal alien don't they have to follow the law.

Re: “Oakland to Pay $60,000 After Police Officer Slapped 14-Year-Old Girl

The big news is a $12 million settlement- that's 200 slaps- this story seems buried- though I do remember seeing the video. Where is that officer now?

Re: “Oakland Approves Tenant Relocation Assistance for Owner Move-Ins and Condo Conversions

Kalb should recognize rent control does not work- it does not add 1 unit of housing to the housing stock. Economists have debunked the theory that rent control has any broader positive impact on housing. Yes it does benefit certain lucky renters (poor or not), but harms mom and pop landlords disproportionately and harms cities housing stock overall, and raises rental prices. Means testing would have disallowed Mayor Ed Koch's rent control apt. I know people (one recently featured in Sunset magazine) who have second homes because they have a rent controlled unit- is that really who you mean to protect? Why do we means test anything?

Re: “Highland Hospital Surveillance Stirs Concerns

Oakland has a crime epidemic. A LPR at a hospital is great, now let's put them on the getaway routes around town and put a dent in crime in Oakland.

Re: “Who Will Be There When You Call 911? Our Writer Plunges Into the World of For-Profit Ambulances.

It is such a broken system- where are the policy makers? Where are the voters demanding a working system? This is one of so many broken systems in Alameda County- take your pick- but I do wonder what the policy makers @$100K + a year actually do.
