    Suffer These Crimes in Oakland? Don't Call the Cops

    Suffer These Crimes in Oakland? Don't Call the Cops

    Oakland's police chief is making some dire claims about what his force will and will not respond to if layoffs go as planned.

    Chief Anthony Batts listed exactly 44 situations that his officers will no longer respond to and they include grand theft, burglary, car wrecks, identity theft and vandalism. He says if you live and Oakland and one of the above happens to you, you need to let police know on-line.


    Some 80 officers were to be let go at midnight last night if a last-minute deal was not reached. That's about ten percent of the work force.

    That deadline has been extended to Tuesday morning with a possible council vote at 10:30 a.m.

    Of course not. This is just an attempt to force the budget through.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    I agree. It is about money. But think about it, what a way to bully your way to what you want.

    Hey -- there's no crime in Oaktown!!!

    Well, except for one little spot around 72nd and Bancroft where some unruly children sprayed a little graffiti.

    In a situation where you have limited manpower and quite a bit of serious crime, prioritizing makes sense. I don't doubt that this is a political move for the budget, but Oakland police really have better things to do than respond to overly loud house parties in the hills.

    When budgets get tight, you don't threaten to cut things that people don't care about. Threaten to cut the basics, fire, police, and schools top the list. That way, when you don't cut as much as you've threatened to, or when you cut something that fewer people are concerned about, the voters think you're a genius.
