Oakland is really nice. Of course it's no Detroit, which ranks first in violent crime, car theft and aggravated assault, and it's no New Orleans, which ranks first in murder, and it's not even close to Minneapolis which ranks first in rape, or Cleveland, which is first in robbery and burglary, or St. Louis which ranks first in property crime, and it's no San Antonio where Larceny and theft are king, and it can't touch Toledo for the lead in arson. But if it makes you feel better to bad mouth Oakland go ahead, we don't care. We probably make fun of where you live too.

"Nooooo! I was going to donate that money to NPR!"


Berkelely graduating, Community organizing, Fleece wearing, Hybrid driving, Jewish liberal, walking stereotype. Hey, let's go see a foreign movie together!

I am assuming his kids go to private school. Perhaps a Yeshiva.

That's not a nice thing to call Oakland. Stop it!

You think the average Raiders fans understands what an actual black hole is?

If you want to read about crime in Oakland look no further than the SFGATE. If you want to find out about crime in San Francisco forget about it, it goes largely unreported.

Vectron: The people in the comments section are worse than Farkers.

SFGate's commenters are some of the stupidest on the internet -- and that's saying something. They profiled one of their top commenters, who turned out to be some dumbass in Texas with nothing better to do.

At least it was not a rape awareness meeting.
