Re: “Urban Shield Task Force Appointee and Gun Dealer Calls Police Critics 'Terrorists'

Mr Grant's comments reflect his prejudices. Those people I know who protest Urban Shield are engaged in civics and government, they vote, they work, some are clergy, they are young, old, of many races and religions and no religion at all. What binds us is the belief that a poluice force does not need military rade weapons to protect the public. What we share is perception that yes, people of color and poor people are targeted by police. We share a desire for democracy. We do not want a de facto military government imposed by force under the pretense of civil protection. We do not believe that the of the freedom to bear arms means a police force bearing arms against the public.

Re: “Oakland, Developers Look to Convert SRO Housing into Boutique Hotels

SRO's keep people sheltered and housed, tourists feel at ease, doorways are not crashpads, streets are cleaner, the city stays income-diverse. SRO's have a bad rep, but renting rooms at affordable rates to us working poor is a real civic benefit. IF the owners could maintain cleaner and more functional buildings, they would attract more young working people and artists of all ages.It's true many down-and-out folks rent in SRO's, but with this displacement going on, you can also rent to people who have good rental history and steady income who make responsible tenants -these are folks getting priced out of the Bay Area who could get a foothold in an SRO.
