    There isn’t a day (or week?) that doesn’t pass without this grim news. Oakland should be known for it’s attractions (airport, museum, Jack London Square, Chinese New Years in downtown, Chabot Space and Science…etc), not this garbage. I’m sick of this and sure others are too. So when (WHEN?) IS THIS MAYOR AND COUNCIL GOING TO DO SOMETHING RADICAL (A REAL SWEEP (NATIONAL GUARD?) TO REMOVE THUGS AND GANGS)? Ask family and friends about visiting Oakland and their response, “… right and get shot?” LETS TRY THIS AGAIN …MAYOR AND COUNCIL GOING TO DO SOMETHING RADICAL? SUPPORT OUR POLICE FOR A CHANGE TOO!!

    It is a shame, im an afro-american male who grew up in the projects in S.F. It was rough but we handled our disputes with fist. If you got yo a– kicked you got respect for fighting back, if you kicked a– you wanted to be friends with yo opponet, now if you just look somebody in the eye you get shot, or if you look good in yo gear, you get shot, if you got a nice car you get shot, where did this coward attitude come from????

      Yep, I grew up in NYC in the 50s and 60s and big projects were replacing small tenements that were deemed to old. Those 15 story buildings were just ripe for creating anti-social people because when you have over 200 families in one building versus 20 families in one building “No One” wanted to know or care about what the other family’s kids were doing. Heck in my tenement building if I goofed up it was a guarantee a neighbor knew who I was, who my parents were and where I lived. Boy you learned to behave or never get caught. Not nowadays since gangs and thugs threaten even their own grannies to zip it or get beaten. No standards, morals or beliefs in a Higher Power.

    Awesome read. I just passed this onto a buddy who was doing a little research on that. He actually bought me lunch since I found it for him! Therefore let me rephrase: Thanx for lunch!
