    And in late breaking news there were no homicides in Dublin, Pleasanton, Castro Valley, or San Leandro. Does any journalist dare ask why?

    OK, I’ll state the obvious. Probably because those communities are not predominately “dark”. I’m just guessin’….

    I would say … Oakland is overwhelmed. Gangs/thugs have controlled a portion of this city for sometime. A real sweep is needed. Of course, since our officers are being monitored by monitors, our officers have to be aware any and all they do will be reported. Of course, I’ve said it before, who’s monitoring the monitors…you might recall, another news station (KTVU) reported the $70 taxi rides, $2000 first class flights by the monitors…so…swear in the monitors and they can patrol w/officers (what a wonderful way to monitor and increase the police force at the same time).

    I still surprised Oakland was a New York Post top rated tourist destination. Crime must not be part of or a very small part of the equation (or Mayor Quan paid them favors). Nevertheless, Oakland’s beauty has been overshadowed for years by bad administration and leadership. Seems like our sworn politicians only want to make as much as they can as quickly as they can. They have been successful at that and the residents and taxpayers feed them.

    No but I am sure there were a lot of “undarks” molesting and raping little girls scaring them for life. Or, rather little boys. Maybe they are off making bombs to kill hundreds at a time. I dunno. lol
