    #1 Friday night in Oakland, #2 uneducated irresponsible families (for lack of a better term), #3 guns in Oakland. Trifecta. Just as the sun rises and sets, as we inhale and exhale, his is NOT, news.

    Why can’t they list the ages of the people? I want to know the ages of the people.

    They were not old enough to die the way that they did. OPD needs at least 300 more cops on their force and do one sweep a week of the criminals. I can guarantee that the homicides will go down.
