Lots of Oakland children being shot recently. So much for Quan's fantasy about serious crime going down.

Had to laugh this evening. The monthly report of America's most dangerous cities was just published. Oakland is ranked number 2 in the country behind Detroit. So much for Quan's crime fighting policies.

A 13 year old girl was brutally raped by 3 black men in Quan's Oakland. It is painfully obvious that the scum of Oakland do not fear or respect Quan and her failed policies. Oakland needs a mayor with grit, not fluffy, let's have a party Quan.

To show you how sad Mayor Quan is, her response to a little 13 year old girl being gang raped was to attend the Cease Fire night out and post on FB all her little photos. She had no statement regarding this horrible crime, she expressed no condolences to the victim's family, she had shown no support for any of the violent crime victims. She continues to party on our tax dollars, post pictures, and apparently does little else.

4 shot in Oakland over the weekend. Thank God for Highland Hospital's trauma team, or Quan would have 4 more murders on her hands.

Another horrendous story of Quan's failed tenure as mayor:

Woman attacked, robbed in Oakland's Temescal District
Posted: Monday, 16 June 2014 10:24 PM uslax

A woman walking alone at the dinner hour was jumped, beaten and robbed just around the corner from string of popular restaurants in Oakland’s Temescal District Monday.

Neighbors say the attack at 48th Avenue and Shattuck has become symptomatic of a growing crime problem in the area.

Lucky for the victim a man walking to his car with his daughter saw the attack and scared the suspects off.

Mark Sommer told KTVU,“The first thing I did was to shout as powerfully as I could…‘No! Stop! Get Away!’”

His daughter, Maya, said she saw two people huddling over the victim, throwing fists at her.

Mark Sommer said years ago he witnessed a similar attack and had said nothing out of fear for his own safety, but Monday night he found the courage to speak up.

"What if it had been my daughter? So I really feel glad that this time I didn't withhold," he said.

The two robbers scared off by Sommer, ran down Shattuck with the woman’s purse and cell phone and jumped into an awaiting car.

One nearby resident, who asked to not be identified, told KTVU thieves have been targeting this same stretch of Shattuck from 46th to 49th Avenue.

"Three to four times a day we're seeing people casing cars and breaking in,” they said.“We’re calling it in to the police every time and they are stretched very thin and so they often aren’t able to show up for at least half an hour.”

Walking down the street, KTVU crews found plenty of broken glass.

After Monday’s attack residents, who already had concerns about the rash of car break-ins, say they have new concerns about walking down the street.

"It makes me feel pretty helpless, that they know that they can get away with it," the same resident said.

41 murders in Oakland now. Mayor Quan ignores the crime and the victim's family, again, and brags on FB how "I was invited to the White House." Un-frigging believable.

You can add this to the Quan legacy: Oakland now leads THE ENTIRE COUNTRY IN ROBBERIES. You can bet Quan will not mention the number of people robbed, raped or assaulted under her regime.

Have you noticed how Quan's FB page is all fluff and little substance. Very few remarks on how she plans to solve the crime, filthy blight, drugs, and ignorance problems in Oakland. While it's nice new immigrants are arriving into the slums of Oakland, we really don't care. We care about how you, Jean Quan, plan on solving the more pressing problems of Oakland before it overtakes Detroit as the number 1 city in violent crime.

The following isan excerpt from today's Oakland Tribune:

"David McCuan, a political science professor at Sonoma State University, said the crash was a political liability for Quan because the electorate has grown fatigued by stories about mayoral slip-ups.

"Does this cost her the election? No," he said. "But she keeps running into a wall of baggage with the voters that she can't seem to shake."

Corey Cook, a University of San Francisco political science professor, said the crash had extra traction because it came on the heels of the KRON-4 report and reinforced accusations that Quan's public statements aren't always accurate. "That's why it has legs," he said. "It fits what her opponents have been saying about her."

Police said Monday that they are investigating the crash, which raised fresh questions about whether Quan is a chronic violator of laws against using a cellphone while driving.

On June 1, a picture emerged of what appeared to be Quan texting behind the wheel. A day later, another picture made the rounds on social media of Quan holding a cellphone to her ear while driving, which is illegal under state law.

Four months before Sunday's accident, the mayor was convicted of running a red light in another incident, according to DMV records."

This is typical Jean Quan FK Ups that she refuses to take accountability for. I'm surprised Quan hasn't tried to blame former Chief Batts for this LOL.

The truth about Quan's Oakland :

"Deadly Oakland street violence claims woman’s life

A 49-year-old woman was killed and a man was wounded in a Tuesday night shooting on an Oakland street, authorities said.

According to police, they received a call of two people being shot at 6:44 p.m. in the 600 block of Douglas Avenue around the corner from Edes and 98th Avenues.

The woman was found lying on the ground and pronounced dead at the scene of gunshot wounds. Meanwhile, a male victim was able to take himself to a hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening.

The double shooting capped a violent day on Oakland streets.

Earlier in the afternoon, a victim was seriously injured in a shooting in the 9200 block of Hillside Street at 1:53 p.m.

The male victim was taken to a hospital in critical but stable condition, police said.

There was also gunfire across town in West Oakland on Tuesday evening but police said no one appears to have been injured.

Shots were fired at about 5 p.m. in the 1000 block of Eighth Street in the Acorn public housing projects, police said.

Police found no suspects or victims but an unoccupied security vehicle was hit by the gunfire."

Quan has allowed Oakland to continue being a war zone and has refused to deal with the domestic terrorists that control Oakland's streets. It is time for a new direction and a new mayor.

Had to laugh. Watched two drugged out bums puking at 74th and Mac. A bunch of residents were taunting them. This is Quan's Oakland because she does not have a firm hand.

So many Oakland criminals being arrested in San Leandro, Berkeley and Alameda. Why can't Oakland keep their thugs under control? Oakland is why East Bay living is degrading so fast.
