You don't have to be an anarchist nor partake in illegal activity to have a bad taste for police officers who abuse their position or think they are above the law. As a matter of fact, that is often what causes people to have disdain. That said, I have no idea what the officers are like in Riverside city but the county has been known to have its fair share of corrupt officers in the news.

In most recent memory this was a big one:
Off-Duty Deputy Arrested For Murder Following Murrieta Bar Fight « CBS Los Angeles

However in the past year I've read of many disturbing cases such as the ones who exploited their position in a youth police ride a long to sexual assault children. I don't even pay attention to the news that often so who knows what else is out there.

Funny, I was thinking the same about you.

Did you bother to see from where they're increasing from? Probably not, so let me tell you. Home prices had fallen about 1/2 of what they were at their peak. So if you have an increase of some sort, it doesn't negate what I posted earlier, IE had some of the worst RE deflation in the nation. I owned property in Riverside, and lived there as well, attended UCR, so I have an understanding of the dynamics of the city. If you want to be a cheerleader, that's fine, but at least try to have some context to what you're posting, would make you more credible....

I have always said that the IE had the highest deflation but it also had the highest inflation in house prices prior to the crash which resulted in the high deflation. If a person was stupid to buy a home at the peak then that is their problem. Anybody with an ounce of sense should have known that the prices of 2005-2006 were not sustainable.

That doesn't at ALL explain the fact of that Wall Street banks were the people who created the bubble, of which the IE was part, something that is never talked about. Someone or something had to make those loans, collateralize them, and then fraudulently sell that packaged junk to investors who were in turn lied to about the efficacy of that garbage. Blaming only the buyers and not even acknowledging the money fraud gets you nowhere.

Also, cities in the IE were reliant on that money scheme to create a wealth effect. Property taxes went up, as did sales taxes, because of HELOCs, which allowed those that didn't buy at the peak but still used inflated equity to buy stuff that they really didn't need. Now the scam is being replayed again, but not to the extent as a decade ago....

Gangs rule downtown Riverside and elsewhere. While arrests are frequent, gang activity continues. Why? Because the worst gang in Riverside is the RPD itself. The cops concoct little stings in parking lots at the downtown grocery store parking lot, for instance, to arrest to end user criminals (buyers of small drug packages), send these petty perpetrators through the system, then hail themselves as heros at numerous award ceremonies downtown, on their website because they STOPPED CRIME! Further, the cops count these arrests into the statistics to obtain more funding. And yet, the crime continues, because the cops don't go to the drug SOURCE.

False arrests are too numerous to count. You can't get a business permit without bribing the City Council. The City of Riverside is hostile toward business, insisting of paid parking everywhere, so that all businesses downtown suffer. The only free parking, for some reason, is at the porn shop downtown, but that place is always empty, too, yet still in business. Hmmm, nobody knows why.

Riverside is doomed. There are no jobs there, unless you work for the city. And good luck getting a job there. You have to already work for the city to get a job there. It's a working class town, which WOULD be great, if the working class work working.

Odd, but my experiences are the exact opposite, but don't let that stop you from grinding your own issue-based subjective reality axes.

Must be on top of a very BIG hill, since Diamond Valley Lake is 35 to 40 miles from downtown Riverside. Are you sure you have your city and street correct? There is an Oak Drive in the hills south of Hemet - which is in Riverside county.

And please don't call the state Cali. Thank you.
