And another - appears to be a random murder & assualt on two 18 year old darker girls. The alleged killer is white, so Asians need be careful there, reading between the lines as you wish.

(the killer obviously isn't a Proud Boy. but if Proud Boys & their ilk are active in Oakland, then, yes, our crew need to be careful of them as well as financially motivated muggers)

SFO

Been there lately? The whole area is packed full of bums, vagrants criminals, drug addicts & illegal aliens. Why anyone even wants to visit this area these days is beyond belief..
Oakland itself is in the top 10 of the most violent cities in the US..

Just say NO to #SFO

Great job Donald Morris, it's fine as long as you don't have to stay there, right?

Was wondering how long it would take Donald to turn against all the crew... seems not that long at all.

No doubt you'll be taking the rooms from BA in the Oakland Marriott as we're dropping the route soon.

Would be interesting to see if managers would be willing to take their family/children to this and other hotels within the system. If they don't take their family then why would they send the employees there?

All of this may be true, but Oakland still sucks. And the more I read about the Bay Area though, I think you should keep the check-in equipment on the plane, unload it upon landing to handle the outbound passengers, once the plane returns from Vegas with the refreshed crew, load up all pilferable equipment before flying back to HKG. Otherwise, it could end up being covered in needles and feces.

Ummm, Nonsense. In case you didn't notice, the post contained a VIDEO. You can see for yourself the facts of what ATY was informing you of. Or you can continue being the deluded little liberal snowflake you obviously are.

ps. Tucker Carlson is one of the most impressive journalists on television today.

Following the demise of Bill O’Reilley’s show Tucker really came into his own. He probably more than anyone else takes on the leftist propaganda bs .

For the Aussies, do they have any good tucker on the room service menu at this new hotel, as it seems no-one will be venturing out?
