Re: “'Homeless Lives Matter Too??': People Sleeping On Oakland's Streets Still Waiting For Government Response To Growing East Bay Crisis

Any plan that does not include treatment for mental illness and drug abuse will fail. We have seen plenty of articles by EBX blaming these tent cities on lack of affordable housing, while completly ignoring the elphant in the room.

Re: “Berkeley's New Progressive Majority Gets Serious About Homelessness Solutions

This really does a lot to show how out of touch the city of berkeley is with their homeless community. One visit to any of these camps and you can immediatly see that any solution to this problem must first include drug and alcohol treatment. Lets make a realistic path to end homelessness, not just build nicer homeless camps.

Re: “Cops Are Not 'Warriors'

Hero:
noun, plural heroes; for 5 also heros.
1.
a man of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities.
2.
a person who, in the opinion of others, has heroic qualities or has performed a heroic act and is regarded as a model or ideal:
He was a local hero when he saved the drowning child.

Warrior:
a person engaged or experienced in warfare; soldier.
2.
a person who shows or has shown great vigor, courage, or aggressiveness, as in politics or athletics.

Although all work related deaths are tragic, the difference is, Police officers often die while trying to protect others. This officer wasn't killed by an accident, he was murdered. I don't know if the author actually knows the definition of the words "warrior" or "hero".
