12/11/2021

The Oakland City Council approved this week settlement of the City’s lawsuit against California Waste Solutions, Inc. (CWS) after years of litigation to recover for Oakland ratepayers approximately $6 million in overcharges for bringing recycling carts at multi-family buildings out to the curb ( “backyard service”). The settlement requires that CWS refund approximately 2,000 multi-family building owners for those years of overcharging, and lower their rates for backyard service for recycling carts going forward. The settlement will make these Oakland ratepayers whole, remedying the harm they suffered for years as a result of CWS’ overcharging practices.

The City of Oakland is excited to announce we're accepting applications for two important classifications within the Fire Department's Mobile Assistance Community Responders of Oakland (MACRO) Program.

The MACRO Program is a community response program for non-violent 911 calls. The goal of the program is to reduce responses by police, resulting in fewer arrests and negative interactions, and increased access to community-based services and resources for impacted individuals and families, and most especially for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC).

I haven't seen any improvements in Oakland since Mayor Libby! Tiny homes? Islands on the most congested streets? Lanes for buses? What about affordable housing for the people who work and live here, the people who keep this city thriving. Where are public school funding?! Where are programs for low-income inner city children?! Who's looking out for working families who can't make enough to afford the cost of living here. Where is Mayor Libby?! I've lived in Oakland my whole life and have never seen her face aside from the news here and there. If you can't do your job, step aside and let someone who actually cares do it for you!!
BARBARA BOXER ASSUALED IN OAKLAND. pLEASE DECLARE OAKLAND A STATE OF EMERGENCY LIBBLY SCHAAF
Dear council members I plead with you to vote to keep the Oakland A’s in Oakland where they belong. The long term financial impact will be positive, keep jobs, and create new opportunities for minority lead business to thrive. It is nearly impossible to have a major sport franchise in one’s city. Oakland has 2 Crown Jewels that unite all Oaklanders and for a few hours in the day there is peace and love in the air. Lake Merritt and Oakland A’s baseball. For the sake of kids all over the bay and citizens like myself. Please vote to keep what’s ours. There is a line from the 1989 baseball movie Field of Dreams” Build it and they will come” Thank you for your time and dedication to the city I call home Oakland! Go A’s!!
Happy Sunday City of Oakland Parking Citation Department - Before ticking my car --or any--for not displaying a parking sticker I would appreciate it if you'd check the parking app. I paid by phone yesterday and the parking was active while I was in the gym. Focus more attention on the shattered glass from car break-ins on 12th between Clay and Broadway. I enjoy this very important city. But, we all need to work together to make this the best place in the Bay to live and thrive.
Victims of Hate crime or all asian victimized compensation offered by the city of SF. Does Oakland have one too to Help hundreds of victimized asians ???? Contact Carl Chan if city of Oakland have ?
‘Surreal’: Black families rally with Oakland cops against violence, countered by ‘mostly white Antifa’
BOOK DISCLOSURE - IMPACTING CRIMINOLOGY The policeman is the main character of any police story in real life and being the protagonist of the investigation and the arrest, he has to be better than all the other professionals who will succeed him in the process: judge, prosecutor, defense attorney. The modern police officer must have a broad and comprehensive understanding of crime in all its modalities, in order not to be outdated in its concepts and interpretations and become an ineffective public safety professional. A full understanding of their work enables the modern policeman to immediately connect a prison to a voluntary action, however isolated, or to connect that prison to a criminal organization. A simple prison is closed with the presentation of the culprit to a judge, but a complex prison has ramifications that will lead the Police to dismantle criminal organizations. Both are harmful to society in all its aspects, but that action, when connected to a criminal organization, has a greater potential for danger and if not understood, isolated, neutralized and repressed; it will grow and become through planned actions of hybrid warfare, a real danger for the very organization of the State, because when it reaches this stage, SOCIAL CHAOS will already be installed and the domain of CRIMINOCRACY will emerge. In order to provide data for a comparative study on this topic, I present my most recent book to fellow officers, whose synopsis is transcribed below: PUBLISHED IN ENGLISH – 547 PAGES. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0978WP1FK?ref_=pe_3052080_397514860 BOOK SYNOPSIS HETERODOX CRIMINOLOGY (CRIMINOCRACY versus CIVILIZATION), is a bold, daring and challenging book to CRIMINOCRACY. In Brazilian and world literature, CRIMINOLOGY has been discussed by people who are studious and reputable in its objectives, but this criminal science has also been very contaminated by stories full of lies and distortions about the reality of the facts, with the aim of deceiving and deceiving any person who reads these lies and sophistries or who becomes aware of them. The sophisms and lies in relation to Criminology in Brazil and in the world are part of efficient and effective actions of criminal hybrid warfare. The first objective of these criminal hybrid war actions is to destroy the structure of a traditional society through the establishment of SOCIAL CHAOS and the inversion of moral and legal values conquered by Civilization. The second objective of these criminal hybrid war actions is to neutralize and isolate the five organized societies of any country: CIVIL, POLITICAL, POLICE, LEGAL AND MILITARY. The third objective of these criminal hybrid war actions is to occupy State Power and establish a new order: CRIMINOCRACY. In these brief words, HETERODOX CRIMINOLOGY (CRIMINOCRACY versus CIVILIZATION) is a real ALERT to reputable people, as it is a book based on research carried out within the criminal underworld, dissecting its insides, to know its ways of acting in various modalities criminal in their origin and offer efficient and effective solutions to reverse this serious problem called: CRIMINOCRACY. STAY ALERT AND PROTECT YOURSELF UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. CRIMINOCRACY IS CRUEL.

Why is it that, as a culture, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands? ”
Stand up Oakland ChiefArmstron saturday. I born and raised in Oakland. Oakland will never change. Oakland do not have Love for One another. Oakland filled with Hate and violance since i lived here. Chief Armstrong and Libbly Schaaf cannot and will not change the People of Oakland not in ten years ..not in Hundred Years. Since i lived in Oakland Near Mac Arthur and Boadway.. all 10 bikes stolen from me, I was bullied everyday and developed a Mental dis-order being afraid of Public, my sister was sexually abused and thus killed herself, car break-in and house fire. our family was victimized until we were forced out of Oakland.so stand up for Oakland will not work. No one stand up for us went we were victimi9zed and killed.
Born and raised in Oakland: there are two kinds of People in Oakland: those that Hurt people and those who are victimized. It will never changed chief of police Armstrong.
