Friday, Feb. 19 — Getting rid of gangs

on February 19, 2010

The North Side Oakland gang is running amok and the city has asked the court to issue an injunction to crack down on the violence.

Oakland and San Francisco traffic are costing commuters an average of over $2 billion/year due to extensive travel time and cost of excess fuel. Delays are long and wasted fuel is on the rise.

New police chief Anthony Batts announces he will make Oakland one of California’s safest cities by 2015.
