Guns force Oaklanders into a life of crime…

The crime rate in Oakland California is skyrocketing.

Burglaries are up a startling 43 percent in Oakland this year compared to last, part of an ever-growing crime problem in the city.

Why? One reason is they are broke and the police force is shrinking.

The city could be down to a little more than 600 officers by February, which would be 200 fewer than in 2008. Even with another 40 expected to graduate from Police Academy, they will be rookies and there is already talk of trying to contract with outside agencies for support.

The chief of police, blames other factors. For example, the guns are making them do it.

I think the proliferation and easy availability of firearms in this city is something that is a real problem for us,” Jordan said. “Coupled with the fact that there is all-out greed and disrespect for each other and each other’s personal safety between young people.”

    I will sadly agree with one point of the Mayors.. “the fact that there is all-out greed and disrespect for each other and each other’s personal safety between young people.”

    Notice I left off the “coupled” part because the first part has nothing to do with nothing.

    Why is there a budget shortfall, Mr Mayor?

    “I think the proliferation and easy availability of firearms in this city is something that is a real problem for us, Coupled with the fact that there is all-out greed and disregard for wisely spending the taxpayers money.”

    Fits just as well. They just pull random liberal phrases from their ass and expect that people believe them.

    Sadly, many people do. (See 06Nov12)

    The hits keep coming for Oakland. Literally. Two teenage girls gunned down in Oakland — shot 36 times and left for dead in the street.

    Guns Kill People.

    Spoons make people fat.

    Pencils make people fail tests.

    Cars make people drive drunk.
