the toughest city in the bay area, some would say in california. some people want to make this a political issue, for me it is not a political issue. nobody wants to continue to see this level of violence. that is a starting point, that we all get fed up with seeing and experiencing violence everyday. we can't prevent our way out of it, but we can't arrest our way out of it. it needs to be a balanced approach but you've got to have resources to respond. if you don't, you send the message to those that want to commit crimes that oakland is the place to do it. that is the narrative we want to fight against. oakland is not the place where you can come to commit crime. there is going to be accountability. >> he believes that pandemic has magnified the problems. not jailing people due to covid in jails and prisons.
