Good News: Pirates Are Now Plaguing California

Well, as long as they aren’t stealing more than $950 they should be OK, right?

From the link

Pirates are taking over the Oakland Estuary Marinas. Yes, pirates. And local and federal authorities says it’s getting so bad – the U.S. Coast Guard is deploying help to patrol the area.

“Boat owners attacked by pirates,” said Oakland Mayor Sheng Thao. “There are no excuses for that.”

From shipwrecks to sunken sailboats to pirate attacks, the shoreline around the Oakland estuary is seeing a new level of violence that’s leaving the area torn up and trashed. The irony is it’s happening right in front of one of the agencies responsible for addressing it.

“I’ve heard it’s gotten to the point of near fist fights on docks,” said former Harbor Master Brock de Lappe.

The vessels abandoned are covered in graffiti – left like a battleground scene of an action movie.

So, California is becoming like Somalia?

De Lappe served as Harbor Master in Alameda and Oakland over the course of 10 years. But, he’s never seen it get this bad.

“You can see one here that’s recently sunk,” he said, pointing to boat bow peeking out of the water. “As you can see out here at the pier, the public fishing pier for Union Point Park. There’s at least two sunken vessels off that pier.”

Oakland police are not providing the I-Team with any specific data, but De Lappe says over the past few months pirates have been attacking vessels at five different locations along the channel – including Jack London Square, the Jack London Square Aquatic Center, the Estuary Channel west of the Bayside Hotel, Union Point Park West, Union Point Park East.

Really, it sounds like all the rest of the crime in California, this is just happening on boats, on the water. But, really, is anyone getting hurt? It’s just property, right?

“Well, I would certainly say that this phenomenon of criminal activity in the maritime domain, it’s new to me,” said Cpt. Lam. “I think it’s going to take a comprehensive inter-agency effort to really effectively address it. And we’re committed to doing it.”

Sink their boast. Hang them. Well, can’t really do that per the law, unless they attack a US military ship, but, the US does still have laws on the books. Some acts have a minimum ten years, others have a minimum life sentence. Better to hang them.

And since this time frame is usually used for a ‘climate change’ post, let’s not forget that the wackos are saying that global boiling is driving piracy. Unlike back in the Golden Age Of Piracy, which was a Holocene cool period.

    California is now a third world state. The have created a condition of lawlessness occuring on land and now it is happening at sea.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      The only third world state with an average annual income of $96,000.

      The overall crime rate in California is lower today than 30 years ago.

      • James Lewis says:

        Dear Elwood:

        It’s not that I think you would lie, well actually I do, but I would like to see the source for your claim.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Suck my balls! Look it up yourself you old liar, you.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          Your advisors are lying to you day after day. If you weren’t such an arrogant asshole we might be more accommodating.

          2020 Violent Crime Rate (per 100,000)

          Alaska 837.8
          New Mexico 778.3
          Tennessee 672.7
          Arkansas 671.9
          Arizona 654.8
          Louisiana 639.4
          Missouri 542.7
          South Carolina 530.7
          South Dakota 501.4
          Michigan 478.0

          Dominated by Republican dominated states.

          • James Lewis says:

            Dearest Elwood:

            You have balls? Who knew?? Are you sure?

            Look. I’m not Gay so you’ll just have to find another Gay to practice your weird sexual desires with.

            “Tennessee’s crime rate of 672.70 per 100,000 is the fourth-highest in the country. According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) increase in property, crimes were driven by the number of reported burglaries in Memphis and Shelby County. Memphis saw an increase of 23 percent while the county as a whole saw an increase of nearly 12 percent. The number of reported motor vehicle thefts (carjackings) in Memphis increased by nearly 13 percent and 11 percent in Shelby County.’

            Memphis and the county have been ran by the Democrats for the past 50 years or so.

            “Arkansas’s crime rate of 671.93 per 100,000 is the fifth-highest in the country. According to the CDC at the National Center for Health Statistics, Arkansas has one of the highest death rates from firearms. Crime rates in the state are driven up by high concentrations of violence in some cities. Both the Pine Bluff and Little Rock metropolitan areas’ violent crime rates — at 1,098 and 939 incidents for every 100,000 residents, respectively — are far higher than the national average”

            Of course 3 out of the top 5 are DC, New Mexico and Louisiana. All 3 nests of Democrat thugs.

            And 6 out of the top 10 are Democratic controlled. Denver has been Democratic controlled for over 40 years… and do we need to mention Portland and Seattle????

            Of course CA has the highest VIOLENT crime rate. Guess all those sweet bums living in boxes get angry sometime.


      • Conservative Beaner says:

        Your not too bright are you dipshit.

        That’s the median income. All those poor people are offset by the folks in Silicon Valley and overpaid government workers.

        Crime is higher now than 30 years ago, they don’t bother reporting it since the government will just set the crroks free.

        Adjusted for cost of living, California has the highest poverty rate in the country.

        • Elwood P. Dowd says:

          “You’re”, not “your”. You’re not too bright are you?

          So you don’t know what median means. You should look it up.

          Mississippi, not California, has the highest poverty rate of the US states. The rate in California HAS increased but is not the highest.

  2. Bob says:

    What are you 12 ? Or just retarded? Both?

  3. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Commenter: Of course CA has the highest VIOLENT crime rate.

    Your own reference does not support that CA has the highest VIOLENT crime rate, does it? But we’re used to MAGAts lying. Your head MAGAt, Fat Donnie, is incapable of telling the truth.

    If you meant that CA has the most homicides, you should type as much. The total number in a state is not a RATE. The RATE is based on the population. Here, let me explain: Take the total number of homicides in that state that year, and divide by the total population. That gives you the rate per capita, but it’s easier to envision if you multiply by 100,000 to yield homicides per 100,000 people. Now, do you understand?

    For example, CA had 2,495 homicides and a population of 39,000,000, which is 0.000064 murders per person! But how do you measure 0.000064 of a person??? Multiply by 100,000 residents and you get a rate of 6.4 homicides for every 100,000 people. Now, do you understand.

    Most violent states (DC is not a state, but if you favor that, OK!):

    2.New Mexico

    South Carolina

    rank up there as well.

    We know, we know… connies all believe/feel that black and Hispanic men (especially those here illegally!) are the only attackers out there but the demographics tell another story.

  4. James Lewis says:

    Dearest Elwood:

    Ya got me. CA just has more violent crimes than the other states. Stating it as a “rate per” must make the victims feel better.

    Of course 3 out of the top 5 are DC, New Mexico and Louisiana. All 3 nests of Democrat thugs.

    And 6 out of the top 10 are Democratic controlled. Denver has been Democratic controlled for over 40 years… and do we need to mention Portland and Seattle????

    And then we have the Lefties not allowing their base members not being arrested…leading to business closures and “Food Deserts.”
