No really? Wow. At least my grammar is up to par. By the looks of it you seem to have trouble forming a decent sentence. Try not typing while your head is up your own ass in the future. It might help.

They should fire a couple hundred cops instead of lowering the salaries, because if they lowered the salaries we'd have a bunch of pissed off pigs driving around with chips on their shoulders.
I find richmond boring as hell. it goes from ghetto to generic suburban mall with nothing interesting in between. oakland has a real downtown (compared to richmonds), and very distinct and unique neighborhoods.

Perfect example of the ghetto mentality in OAKLAND. "Anyone who has not had run ins with the law is living a boring life". Thank you for that brilliant insight, Tupac.

Thats all oakland needs, less cops. ROFL. Typical oakland youth right here for you folks.

And montclair, is it easy driving around oakland with your eyes closed and your ears plugged. LOL

mind you I dont think all the bay is bad, there are nice parts, particularly where people have jobs, anythign south of the airport to san jose and around to fremont, the 680 corridor. nice places. But there is a large swath of the east bay that should just be destroyed and rebuilt and inhabitted by engineers from silicon valley.

Im not oblivious to the "ills" of oakland
yes there is a lot of crack
yes there are a lot of guns
yes there is some poverty
these 3 are not at all unique to oakland
most major cities have these "problems" to varying degrees, some more so than oakland, some less
you seem scared of anything outside of your privileged suburban bubble
maybe you should go get some dro from oaksterdam to help your anxiety

To everyone -- BayDude is a troll. He's the same guy that went on and on about how awful Oakland is and got booted and came back. And got booted and came back.

If you want him to go away, do not engage him. Do not argue, do not respond. If you can't NOT speak out, stick him on ignore so you won't have to read his posts and won't want to tell him he's wrong.

LakeShore -- the drug kingpin you're asking about was named Felix Mitchell.

Lmao booted when? I'm a troll because I'm bringing to light the problems in your wittle Oakland and you don't like it? If I'm a troll why is my rep so high?

Lady I don't have to tell you that Oakland sucks. The entire bay area will tell you that, talk to just about anyone. The funny thing is you think I'm some kind of lone voice.

Silicon Valley FTW

I don't really have that much of a problem with much of the east bay as its where I'm from. Even Hayward is better than Oakland.

How sad. It just goes to show how some people will lie and make up nonsense just to troll-he probably knows very little about Oakland. Why would someone spend so much of their time pretending?

See, further evidence you don't live here. Its so odd that you would pretend to be so disgruntled when you arent even from here.

Because haters like to congratulate each other. Why would someone rep negativity unless they themselves were negative?

Not not lone, just ignorant.

Is that where you really live? Hayward.
