1/ The latest story to come out of our Reveal Reporting Networks landed today in @eastbayexpress, and it’s a BIG one.

On paper, police in #Oakland, CA, solve 60% of reported sexual assaults.

Yet only 13% of its cases actually lead to arrest.

2/ “Oakland police inexplicably terminated more than 250 felony sexual assault cases during the three years from 2014 to 2016,” @eastbayexpress reports.
3/ In 253 separate sexual assault cases, the survivor wanted to press charges, and the police claimed to have cracked the case. Yet ultimately, the case was abandoned for no apparent reason, per @EastBayExpress' reporting.

This is one of the most controversial videos we've ever posted but if you have an open mind you'll know she speaks 100% truth.

It starts with indoctrination and education...
"The first modern human beings that evolved on this earth were Black women...& every human being on the face of the earth today has the memory of those Black women's genetic structure in their genes. We don't want to admit that, but that's the way it is..." - #JaneElliott

#California is here for you, Tekel Carlisle. Tekel lives at Oakland's Henry Robinson Center, where @GavinNewsom visited today to announce CA's first-ever statewide plan to fight #homelessness with a historic $1 billion. He came to #Oakland to see what's working...
"The Henry" is a rapid re-housing center, where homeless residents move in, get access to social services + housing assistance, and have time to build a constistent daily life. As Tekel put it, "It's a place where I can get back my 'get back' focus."...
The results inspire us. 88 percent who exit The Henry move into permanent affordable housing within 6 mos. TY @CommunitySvcs. We stood w/ @Mayor_Steinberg + @mridleythomas, co-chairs of a new commission that will scour CA for models that work -- and then scale up statewide...

Hey friends! It’s #openingday! I’m taking the day off work to catch the @Athletics today!

Last year I did a story for @ebyesterday about baseball history in #Oakland! (…)

Then I was invited to talk about it at @NerdNiteEB! Here’s the quick Twitter version.
The @Athletics and owner @DaveKaval have made a big push that the team is #RootedInOakland. After all, #Oakland is about to lose the @warriors and the @RAIDERS within a few years.
There’s more than just the @Athletics who play ball in #Oakland, however. If anyone is really in touch with local baseball roots, it’s the Oakland Colonels. They’re an amateur @BAVBB team playing under 1886 rules.

Hasta Muerte Coffee has had a line out the door ever since someone narced on them not serving cops and now vigilantes are threatening to show up.
Line still out the door and 5 America First protestors talking about white rights outside. Honestly I hope they keep coming. This coffee shop is selling out. #Oakland
Neighborhood is coming out and it's getting heated. The Maga protestors ironically look like they want to call the cops.

(1) The #TrumpRally in Moon, PA tonight will be LIT.🔥🔥🔥 I was going to do just a #PhotosThread (an offshot of my regular pinned thread) but I'll add some commentary about the fascinating Special Election race, too. #VoteSaccone vs the little lamb.
(2) GA Rep Karen Handel who won her seat by special election, is speaking at the rally. Great to see her! #LaughingMyOssoff #MAGA
(3) There's so much excitement to #MAGA in PA. Everyone wants a photo with @Saccone4PA18, including @GOPChairwoman Ronna McDaniel.

I'm confident we will win on Tuesday but don't get complacent. Send a strong message to the rest of America!
