Re: “Protesters Join Hands Around Lake Merritt in Oakland to Protest Trump, Hate Crimes

3.7 miles = 19,536 feet
For as far as I could see to my left and right there were about 3 people per foot. Assume the average was half that because of being a denser area (though I was nowhere near any of the more iconic or photogenic sections, then I would have estimated around 30,000. 5-10,000 seems impossibly low.

Re: “Alameda County Traffic Court Data Reveals Minor Infractions Routinely Cited By Police

This issue came to my attention with a John Oliver report entitled "Municipal Violations." It does seem draconian. Has there been some reporting on effective alternative methods of parking/traffic/etc. enforcement? I would be happy to direct some of my time and energy to pushing for reform in Oakland/Alameda Co., but I'm fairly ignorant about the issue, particularly about what to advocate FOR. Thanks for your reporting on this issue.
