Re: “DA O’Malley Took $10K From Fremont Police Union Before Clearing Fremont Cops in Killing of Pregnant Teen

Money well spent. 95% of prosecutors nationwide are white and 85% of them run unopposed. Could that be problematic?

Re: “New Oakland Law Fails to Protect Low-Income Residents

Our council members often pass feel-good legislation but don't follow through to make it effective. I can't speak to whether they intend these measures to work or just to look like they've accomplished something but in the end, it doesn't matter. Business as usual continues on.

Re: “Port of Oakland Jobs Deal Should Be a Model for Amazon and Other Warehousing Corporations

Thank you. Our city and it's Port should abide by these agreements in letter and spirit.

Re: “Oakland Officials Question Police Partnerships with Federal Immigration Agents and FBI

The loopholes in our so-called sanctuary city ate big enough to drive a couple ICE vans through. The city needs to take charge of OPD agreements and keep its promise to its residents.

Re: “Inside Immigration Court: Are Deportation Hearings In The Bay Area Unconstitutional?

This well researched article is truly heartbreaking and even more so when you realize that all these unconstitutional shennanigans were happening under our constitutional lawyer president.
I hope folks that read this will support AB6 and SB3. Those bills, because they have a price tag, will have trouble making it through the leg much less getting our stingy governor's signature.

Re: “I Was Kicked Out of Federal Immigration Court — Because I'm a Journalist

We should all be attending these as often as possible. I'm still annoyed that I was asked to provide ID to be allowed into a BART meeting.

Re: “Almodóvar Redeems Himself with Julieta

Not a single scene, in all its crayon box beauty, was believable. I had read other reviews that called it a melodrama but even then I was not prepared for how false this movie , supposedly delineating a woman's life (topic for another time-directors who supposedly make women's movies because we're such a distinct species ...remember Woody Allen?) and her guilt over, what, being mildly pissed that her husband had been bedding her friend all along and even though she knew that from the get.
I was also prepared for a bleak flick given the topic was the estrangement of a beloved daughter. But it was not believable so I simply didn't care. When it ended abruptly, I was just glad to go home to my warm house after sitting in a cold theater watching time pass.
