Mayor of Burglary-Prone Oakland Promotes Class on Picking Locks

Who says government never makes itself useful? From liberal Oakland, where citizens have given up on the police and now patrol the streets themselves, comes government guidance on how to learn useful skills:

The mayor of a California city struggling with a spike in burglaries and other crimes is apologizing for promoting a class about how to pick locks in her newsletter. …

The Oakland Tribune reports ( that the class — offered through the website, — was geared toward people who misplace their keys. But it didn’t go over well with some residents given the city’s crime woes, including a more-than 40 percent jump in burglaries last year.

Hold on, Oakland. A big enough earthquake to put you out of your misery is sure to come along sooner or later.

Jean Quan, the tasteless joke that passes for Mayor of Oakland.

    That’s the face of someone who should be squatting in the dust in some third world fleapit.

  2. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    She is the mayor of Liberal infested Oakland

  3. GoinSane says:

    This a hoax – right? Gotta be!

    This sounds about right for Oakland.

    It’s been a while since I’ve been there, but if Oakland is the same as I remember it… well, imagine Gary, Indiana… or Detroilet, or Chicago, Washington D.C., East St. Louis, etc., but where those in charge aren’t merely corrupt Communists, but borderline insane to boot.

  5. Skyfall says:

    Mickey, she may not be squatting in the dust, but you got the rest of it right.

    The thing about progs is they always talk big, talk love, talk compassion…and ALWAYS are the most useless, irresponsible, lazy (except when it comes to destroying things), uncaring, evil-enabling monsters around.

    They have one thing right now: unbeatable PR via the media. They will never tell you the truth ever again.

    As my favorite reporter once said:

    “We’ll tell you any shit you want to hear. We deal in illusions, man! None of it is true! But you people sit there day after day, night after night, all ages, colors, creeds…We’re all you know. You’re beginning to believe the illusions we’re spinning here. You’re beginning to think that the Tube is reality and that your own lives are unreal. You do whatever the Tube tells you. You dress like the Tube; You eat like the Tube; You raise your children like the Tube; You even think like the Tube. This is mass madness! You maniacs! In God’s name, you people are the real thing. We are the illusion! So turn off your television sets. Turn them off now. Turn them off right now. Turn them off and leave them off. Turn them off right in the middle of this sentence I’m speaking to you now. Turn them off!”

    She’s the retarded prog who let Occuprogs run wild over Ookland for months on end. She’s unfit to be a women’s restroom attendant, much less mayor of a large city.

  7. JNN says:

    Lock and Load. Smoke the first few burglars and watch crime drop.

    Sorry, but this picture, for some reason, makes me think of taking care of my old motorbike.

    “Winterizing the old jap bitch!”

  9. Jim says:

    You have to remember that this is what you get when you let the “second place” vote getter be selected for mayor instead of having a run-off election. It was billed as a cost saving measure. Of course, Oakland has filled the position of being a second class city (ask J. Brown) for a long time, so it’s a perfect match.

    San Francisco & Oakland like SODUM and GAMORA in the bible TWO WICKED CITIES run by evil liberals

    Well, how did you know? You’ve been to Oakland before?

  12. BoJangles says:

    Judging from that pic, the leftist clowns who run Mexifornia must’ve been handing out employment applications in some far-east rice patty.

  13. Fiberal says:

    Quan was elected bc she promised to put a filthy take-out joint on every corner and that all the laundries would run on time.

  14. Flu-Bird says:

    This is as bad as the mexican goverment instructing illegal aliens on how to cross our border illegaly They might as well change the title from MAYOR to MORON Just list this dip-wad along with Bloomberg as AMERICAS WORST MAYORS

  15. grayjohn says:

    Was she featured in one of those Faces of Meth things?

  16. PabloD says:

    I’m sure Oakland-area burglars don’t bother with picking locks; they just 3 or 4 of their buddies, kick down the front door, and take what they want. BTW, I learned how to pick locks a couple years ago; once you realize how easy it is to open garden-variety locks, you’ll never look at security the same way.

  17. DJ says:

    At least Mayor Quan is much better looking than Oprah without make-up.

    Which begs the question: is the Obama Phone Lady Oprah’s long lost twin?

  18. James McEnanly says:

    Why bother picking the locks? Our own US Postal service is offering a clothing line based on their uniforms. Simply buy a set of clothes, and have the victim buzz you in.

  19. Beforethestorm says:

    Aren’t people from the orient supposed to be smarter than this?

  20. Jim says:

    Liberals can say the damnest things…

  21. Python says:

    DJ, I just linked to the Oprah photo and I went blind for a while. Please put warnings before you provide links. That’s what we here in Australia call a Bush-Pig. Excuse me I think I just spewed a little in my mouth, gotta go.

  22. Nathaniel M says:

    What a cretinous joke of a mayor she’s been. She hails from the same professional protesting pool as the OccuTardz and is amazed when the run rampant through that city then blames it all on her former police chief. Oh and let’s them shut down the port of Oakland too. How many times has she been the Washington on some Junket or another? Pathetic!
