I think your thread title is over dramatic. Shutting down a few streets in Oakland is not the same as shutting down an entire city. I believe we need to be wary over things like this happening but lets leave the over-hyped propaganda to the MSM shall we?

Some major errors have been made letting it get so out of control as it is today. There needs to be an integration of the high risk, at risk youth and active anti-social people in the state. They need to be intermixed with prosocial people and drop the believed "ownership" ideals that seem to take precedent in areas like that.
Originally posted by bonchoIf 25 people or so harass, abuse and control residents in one single high-rise unit is easy for them to claim ownership of that unit and the surrounding block. However, if there are only one or two people with this mind frame in each high-rise in the city, it's much harder to assume a subversive authoritarian role essentially laying claim to that building and/or block.
Residents in the area were advised via Reverse 911 and other mass notification systems to lock their doors and report suspicious activity to the Calaveras County Sheriff's Office. Investigators ask anyone who sees someone in the area matching the man's description to call 911 immediately.
First and foremost, the city says residents should be prepared to shelter in place for at least three days, which means stocking supplies like medications, food, batteries, drinking water, flashlights and more inside of an emergency kit. And if a shelter in place order is issued, you and your family should go indoors immediately with all doors and windows locked and your fireplace damper closed.
Recommendation that the City Council direct staff to : 1) facilitate community meetings to discuss the recommendations in the report and solicit citizen input; 2) to budget properly in FY 13 - 14 for the continuation of Ceasefire and the Marshall Plan Committee discussions; 3) after receiving community input, return to Council with final recommendations along with a financing plan for implementation that is in coordination with bankruptcy negotiations.
