Re: “Feds Bust Gun Trafficking Ring Revealing a Pipeline of Illegal Weapons Into Oakland

So what we're seeing is gun laws not preventing *criminals* from obtaining guns. Imagine that!

I bet everyone feels so much safer now that there were a slew of gun laws last year. /s

Re: “Oakland Has a New Two-Year Budget, but Only After a Night of Divisive Infighting

And people wonder why Oakland is so dysfunctional.

Yes, let's cut first responder services and give into the mob rule mentality.

Dan's proposal is ridiculous.

Re: “Grand Jury: Oakland’s ‘Backroom Dealing’ to Sell City-Owned Land Is Systemic Problem ‘Vulnerable to Undue Influence’

And yet the residents continually vote for the same people who are screwing them over..... how progressive!

Re: “Gentrification Station: Why Oakland Still Says NO to Uber

Don't say "We" because you do not represent a lot of Oakland's residents. There are a great many of Oakland residents that want to see development and progress being made to this great city.

The demands listed are very short-sighted if not laughable. Change is coming to Oakland whether people like it or not. The Bay Area is only so big and it's getting crowded day by day.

Re: “City of Oakland ‘Bulldozer’ Hit A Homeless Man While He Was Sleeping In A Tent

Nanci, I pay for my garbage to be removed so there's an expectation that it will be done.

Are these people paying to have their garbage removed? Shake your head no. You, I, and the rest of the city are paying for their garbage to be removed.

Re: “Town Business: Landlords Defeat Bill to Preserve Oakland's SROs and Mayor Schaaf Will 'Set Aside' Soda Tax Revenue

Todd, assuming you're employed. Do you 1) ask to be paid lower than your skills worth? 2) if you can live off of $2,000 a month do you tell your employer to stop paying you more?

Somehow, I don't think you do.

Re: “Oakland Officials Are Divided Over a Proposal to Create a New Department of Violence Prevention

Who's relatives/friends of Reid/McElhaney will be appointed to this board? Nothing like having government creating more government for non-performing tasks.
