Sorry. Off-topic rant.
I wouldn't mind if they slapped a Walmart right on Telegraph (after bulldozing People's park, and other low income housing situations).

The new Business School wing called "Walmart Library of Finance" wasn't a clue?

Do you really think they'll be teaching Marxism in a school named after (and financed by) Walmart? Hello?

The socioeconomic problems will get fixed when the trouble gets priced on out of here and flocks up to Richmond.

Oakland city government is a joke, but I like the approach here. Let's attract more productive people, more tourism, more families buying homes, more small business owners, etc. It makes more sense to stamp out crime in communities that will serve as your tax base. Putting more resources in DEO would be engaging in a battle that will be about as successful as The War on Drugs. If you can't beat them, you price them out of your community.

I love it, since we can't fix the gang problems, let's "yuppy" them out of here.
