Daily Fetch 10.25.11: Netflix, we have a problem…

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

From Los Gatos (and Wall Street):  Netflix, we have a problem…
To San Jose City Hall:  the climbing Occupy Wall Street protester who is on up on a wall won’t come downPerhaps OPD could chase him down
From OPD to SJPD… More details came out yesterday about the latest OIS (officer involved shooting) including a 911 tape released from the San Jose Police Department.  When the tapes back up the SJPD account of what happens, apparently there isn’t a problem releasing them… when they don’t, the tapes remain secret.  Perhaps Scott Herhold will write about that
Union officials held a press conference yesterday to ask for the City’s pension overseer to be fired because he forwarded an Economist article to San Jose Councilmember Sam Liccardo titled:  The struggle with public-sector unions should be about productivity and parity, not just spending cuts… Sounds like the Economist article was written by Pierluigi Oliverio… Or Jack Welch.
The County may ban styrofoam, joining (almost) everyone in San Mateo County… We wonder if the DA and Sheriff have anything to say about this…

Daily Fetch 10.21.11: Ludacris will have a field day with this new area code…

Friday, October 21st, 2011

Let’s do this quickly… it’s Friday and we are a little shaken up after the latest spate of earthquakes.
Occupy Wall Street protesters in San Jose were arrested by SJPD... (No one was shot…)
The crime rate would be lower if we had more police officers.  And San Jose gang violence would stop… (from a SJPD press conference on Tuesday via Protect San Jose).
In other crime news, the 911 tapes of the Cupertino massacre at the quarry have been released.  Obviously, these tapes aren’t from SJPD or Rob Davis…
New area codes!  That will really change this song.  Somehow, we think 669 will make Luda’s next single.

That’s all for today…
Have a good weekend.
Stay safe…

Daily Fetch 1.27.11: The reGov’s Middle Finger…

Thursday, January 27th, 2011

The San Jose Police Department released the 911 tapes of the folks at Peet’s calling following the recent murder-suicide when Jeanine Harms’ brother shot the guy he thought killed his sister, Maurice Nasmeh.
That’s a big story on its own, but the fact that the tape is being released by the Department is newsworthy on its own… We seem to remember when releasing 911 tapes was something the City of San Jose never, ever did
Here’s a Merc headline that should get folks a little riled up:  Another day, another shooting in San Jose… Maybe Anthony Batts would be the best choice for Police Chief, he’s dealt with stuff like this as Chief in Oakland…
An update to the fatal shooting by a San Jose Police Officer in the San Jose foothills earlier in the week: “…the officer fired to save another officer’s life…” More details from Sean Webby’s story in the Merc.
San Jose Inside has a recap of Tuesday’s San Jose City Council discussion about pensions, including a comparison to the nation’s Social Security outlook
Inside was busy yesterday, they also have a recap of the LA Times story about how reGovernor Jerry Brown gave the middle finger to big city mayors close up during a press conference following a meeting in Sacramento.  Redevelopment is going away, like or not
Some final (blog) notes:
Protect San Jose has another tribute to a fallen officer.  Today’s tribute is to Robert White who died in the line of duty 26 years ago.
Councildweeb Jim Griffith has posted his “Council Summary” from the Sunnyvale City Council meeting on 1/25.  Since the only Daily Fetch reader who was there was Jim Griffith, perhaps you should check out his wrap-up…
Metblogs is having some serios technical difficulties and has been down for some time… You can follow them on Twitter if you like.
Speaking of following folks on Twitter… We hate to do this, but:
At noon yesterday, @SanJoseDotCom wrote this on Twitter:
  • NEWS: Yahoo announces more layoffs. Will their former employees head down 101 to Google? http://fb.me/Jb6dOynj
If that looked familiar, because we wrote this and posted this at 9:01 a.m. in our regular Daily Fetch post titled “In Google, Out Yahoo…“:
  • There is an interesting Silicon Valley 2011 Snapshot in the news this week: Google will hire a bunch of folks (about 6,000)  and Yahoo will let a bunch go. Perhaps the Yahoo folks should just send their resumes a little further north on 101…
Coincidence?
