The problem here is getting worse. please remove the camps.
Il Cane Di Ferro - Residents living near & across from Franklin Park - would out up with this for a nano second. Action by the authorities would be swift.
Sam Adams - I would like to attend but I'm currently out of town. Keep us posted.
Sam Adams... just watched you on City Council CCTV. You did an excellent job expressing your concerns.
Predictably the City cited the 9th Circuit and Boise. The mayor will respond to your email with similar language. The council is painful and weak.
APD is frustrated and would like to do some real policing on this matter. Yet the council keeps them from doing so. Personally, I think they are relieved the tents are confined to the West End/Tubes. This is historically a section of town which is the island's step child.
Rep from WABA was there tonight receiving a certificate. Interesting...her members aren't happy about this, too yet she said zero. Sad.
In the interim, keep the pressure on. Educate yourself on the issues. May have to get worse before it gets better. #poseytriangle
I totally hear you and have similar rage over what's happening in our city and more broadly across California (the US even). I also agree that it's tough out there to have a voice when you are not necessarily politically aligned with the people in charge. I often feel under represented as a single mother, professional, homeowner, and tax payer. A revolt, however, is going to require some organizing, charisma, and patience. My preference is to work together as Alamedans on a long term plan. We won't remove anyone from office overnight, but maybe we can find better representatives together and over time phase out the current leadership. And really no one will take us seriously if we yell and point fingers and call people names. Let's be smarter than them and leverage our outrage and concern strategically.
I set up an email address to start putting us in contact in real life - firstname.lastname@example.org
Anyone who's interested in getting in touch please reach out. Anyone who has contact info or suggestions for local business groups or other resident groups to contact please pass it along.
Hey everyone just a heads up there is some corrupt city officials going around mass-censoring posts, wiping out peoples comments without a trace, replacing the text in requests with "content blocked by rejections" (there is no way to restore the hidden text, it is wiped out forever), closing requests and then immediately archiving them to prevent you from commenting or reopening the request without actually resolving the problem that was reported, and a number of other nasty tactics like applying permanent censors to people's accounts so they can't post anything on the site at all.
I posted a post to neighbors about it here: https://seeclickfix.com/issues/7043587
You should probably read it before it gets deleted.
Stay very vigilant and alert folks. They could wipe out every post and comment you've ever submitted to this site in the blink of an eye and you won't even be notified when it happens. Make sure you save copies of all your documentation because the city is trying to bury and cover up the truth. They're trying to suppress dissent and censor dissidents.
they just did it to my request documenting the harassment and abuse from my criminal neighbors here: https://seeclickfix.com/issues/5512452-content-blocked-by-rejections
They replaced my original request body with the words "content blocked by rejections." I had a very long and detailed post explaining what the problem was, but now nobody can even read it because they wiped it out. The only way to even figure out what my request is about is to scroll through the comments.
As you can see in my comments I have been exhaustively documenting the abuse all year. The request is from March 2019.
This morning I logged on to discover Florence Lopez closed and permanently archived my request so I can't even open or comment on it anymore. I can't even document what my neighbors are doing anymore and the fact that APD are still letting them get away.
When I tried to resubmit the issue to continue documenting the problem, Florence Lopez immediately stepped in a few minutes later and closed my request again. He has been singling me out this morning and wiping out a slew of my other requests as well.
I'm just letting you guys know because if this can happen to me, it can just as easily happen to any of you. The issue I'm submitting requests about on SCF is also a lot more severe than this homeless problem (not that I'm trying to downplay this issue, I agree that it is also a problem), but just to show that the city really couldn't care less and they really will go to far lengths to silence you and prevent anyone in Alameda from even knowing what you're going through.
Stay very frosty folks. Any minute they could wipe out your seeclickfix account, every post you've ever made. They could censor you in one click. Save copies of everything, screenshot everything. Don't let them silence you.
You've already seen them go into our homeless requests and close them with some generic BS response like "assigned to HLOs" so you guys already know what I'm talking about. Luckily we've been able to reopen these requests and post comments pointing out that the police didn't actually do anything, and that these "HLOS" may as well not even exist since they do nothing to abate the problem.
They could easily also archive the request so you can't even comment or reopen it. This will make it look to other people on the internet that they actually cleaned the homeless camp up. It makes it look like they did their job. They are doing this on purpose to deceive the public.
So keep a close eye on your request. If you see them close/archive it resubmit it. If they wipe out the body of the request keep a copy of it saved on your computer and paste it back in a new request.
Don't let them cover up the truth!
Voting lets your government know.
What is this?
