Re: “Alameda’s District Attorney Wants to Charge Oakland Cops, But Key Witness Sent to Florida

Thanks again for your excellent and continuing coverage on this. What I haven't seen addresses here or anywhere else is any attention on Miss Guapes parents, one of whom works for OPD. These alleged crimes took place when Guape was a minor, which may not imply negligence on the part of her parents, but certainly raises questions. Not to mention how quiet her(Miss Guap') have been in light of the fact that their daughter was raped sex trafficked. Someday perhaps we'll all know the truth, in the mean time keep up the good work.

Re: “Oakland Mayor Schaaf and Police Seek Unproven 'Predictive Policing' Software

OPD cant even figure out how to consistently and effectively use nixle, which by all accounts is a rather straight forward affair. Thus, I'm at a loss as to how they might consistenly and effecitvely use something like this, which is more complext and probably more expensive. Even more distressing is how quickly "popo" and our ilustrious mayor(little miss privilege) seem to latch onto anything that feels good in the moment. Then again, one could argue that in the end, we're getting what we deserve. smh...

Re: “Tuesday Must Reads: Judge Orders Oakland Council to Reopen Gallery; Vaccination Bill Heads to Governor Brown

In any other city, this sort of "stuck on stupid, sitting on dumb" approach to governance that has become Councilmember Gibson-McElhaney stock in trade would be seen as some sort of bad political theatre. But not in Oakland. Here it's seen as business as usual. Let us all hope that her ongoing "dope show" will come to an end in the next applicable election cycle.

Re: “Oakland Council Poised to Dampen the New Year

Over the years i've read most if not all of the articles the Express has written on Kaplan. Her record as a lazy, ethically challenged, risks adverse do nothing is well documented and legendary. I've also read the articles on LGM. There too the coverage has been accurate, clear and concise. What I dont get is why the Express continues to deny its clear and cogent bias, in this instance, against LGM, while seemingly doing the opposite with regards to Kaplan. In the end, the protests of the Express against this premise ring as hollow and obsequious as the protest of LGM. Birds of a feather.....

Re: “Why Lew Wolff Should Sell the Oakland A's

I agree. It's time for the A's to be sold to someone who is not only committed to keeping them here, but who understands the value, in and of itself of owning such a team as the A's. Lets hope Uncle Lew sees the light!

Re: “Larry Reid Touts Police, Again

During the District 7 Town hall that Council-member Larry Reid attended, but was put on by the Mayor, Reid sauntered up to the podium, and, after dispensing with his usual platitudes, acknowledged that his district had some of the most unmet economic need in all of Oakland. And you know what, he's absolutely right. Of course, no where is that more evident, as the article suggest, than along the International corridor, "which runs like an open sore through the middle of the district". With Larry, fundamentally, the question should be reduced to, is it a willingness issue or an ability issue. I would argue that it is a lack of willingness, or perhaps more succinctly, a lack of willingness to work on behalf of his constituents(His decision to exclude his district from the recent conversation concerning the expansion of the foodtruck is just one such example). Clearly he can get things accomplished, no where is this more evident than along Hegenberger Road where there is steady progress on the airport connector. Likewise with the proposed development of Foothillsquare that is slated to include a Kroegers. When you look at these two examples, it becomes clear that not only does Larry Reid see the unmet economic needs, but tragically, he only sees it as an opportunity to help his buddies, and not his constituents.
I know Sheryl Walton and know from experience that she not only has the ability to see what needs to be done, but more importantly, a willingness to get things done that will benefit not her, or her friends, but, her constituents.

Re: “Oakland Zoo Operators Violate Election Laws

Thanks to this article, I plan to vote against this ballot measure. Of course, the real lesson here is that our system of governance can only function when we have a free and open media, one that can bring public awareness to malfeasance and illegality. No where is that more true than in Oakland. Now, the question is, what does the city plan to do about holding the zoo accountable?
