text Report from SCPD Corner - by Robert Norse

And that we and others should not be afraid to expose the nightly abuse homeless people suffer and the racial profiling that many blacks & Lat...

Robert Gammon, editor of the 'East Bay Express,' wrote in a recent piece, 'When Liberals Take Control of the Police,' that the progressive leadership of Richmond Police Chief Chris Magnus has resulted in the decrease of crime and police use of force. Gammon also contends that progressive policing has also kept protests peaceful. Several days after the article was published, Richmond police shot and killed a young Latino man outside of a liquor store, the first fatal police shooting in Richmon...

“We should be a salmon state, not a watermelon or pistachio state. We have the largest estuary on the West Coast of the Americas. We have some of the largest salmon rivers in the West, but people have given these up for agribusiness, for large farms in a desert," Chief Caleen Sisk said. She reiterated that Shasta Dam is “a weapon of mass destruction” against the Winnemem Wintu and said the idea of dams is a “horrible archaic project.” Mark Miyoshi and Chief Caleen Sisk watch ...

But we’re calling out this app for its own suspicious activities - having no privacy policy that explains the sensitive information it collects and may be sharing with others, and for encouraging people to file...
