OAKLAND IN THE DUMPS, LITERALLY...THIS ALL HAPPENED IN ONE DAY THIS WEEK IN OAKLAND:
- Just on the news a severed and mummified HEAD was found in a dumster
on E. 18 St. in Oakland
- Eigth grade student violently attacked a teacher today in Oakland school
- Oakland Police Chief 'retiring' for 'medical reasons.' Poor Howard
Jordan having to deal with people like Mayor Quan - and her ilk.
I figured it was just a matter of time. Hey, and whatever became of
the 'Super Cop' that helped clean up New York and Los Angeles that
Oakland supposedly hired a few months back? I'm pretty sure they ran
him off not letting him have the tools he needed (such as more cops
and profiling) ...
- Favorite, Old time restaurant burns down. As soon as I heard the lead
on the news that a famous old restaurant burned I guessed it would be
the Merritt on the same E. 18th Street where they found the head, above...
Coincidense? Maybe not. The Merritt, in a mixed area, has not done well
for the past couple decades but it is an iconic, decent restaurant we
still like to visit for old times sake. The city has supported it for
years. Could have been an inside job. Who knows. I doubt they will
replace the Merritt this time, which leaves only one or two old time
restaurants in Oakland.
Merritt, News, Oakland, Oakland in the News, Old Restaurant Burns, Police Chief 'Retiring', Student Attacks Teacher,
