A shooting tonight in Berkeley at Sacramento and Oregon streets near Bob’s Liquor store at around 7:30pm resulted in one known male victim being transported to Highland Hospital’s trauma unit.

The condition of the victim is unknown and, at 9:00 pm, there were no further details available.

Police were on still  the scene at 9:00pm and requesting reserve units for the investigation.

    Just to connect a few more dots here…  Taking into account how fervently Mr. Holland ALWAYS defends local pot dispenaries (it seems to be his #1 issue in life), it seems fair to infer that he most likely partakes avidly of this medicine himself, whether by prescription or otherwise.

    Now, most of you who smoked this medicine when you were younger or hung around other heavy users will recall how a pot head’s sense of what funny or how funny or clever s/he is being becomes rather skewed under its influence.  The stupidest comments can elicit howls of laughter when under the influence.  The very same comment, when sober, is either a dud or seems downright embarrassing, even to the pothead himself.

    Assuming you are sober now (?), Mr. Holland, and perhaps have come to realize how petty, immature and inappropriate your “poll” actually comes off, please man up and delete it and apologize for your childishness.  If nothing else, your juvenile poll sets a poor example for your daughter who, you claim, was a Berkeleyside intern.  You are only embarrassing yourself more and more in this thread.

    Thanks, Mike. I am always open to sincere disagreement. I’ve been wrong many times here on Berkeleyside, and always appreciate being corrected.

    The poll results were phenomenal while they lasted. I certainly struck a nerve.

    Agree, sickandtired. We’ve deleted the comment. 

    Berkeleyside is produced by a very small team, and particularly when there’s breaking news that generates a large volume of comments, we can’t keep up with the moderation requirements. We rely on our community to flag offensive comments, which brings them to our attention.

     i flagged it at least 6 times during the day.

    Just to be clear: someone who’s too afraid to post with their real name is prodding me to “man up”.

    Amusing.

    Crickets. The data speaks for itself.
