OAKLAND, Ca.- A city besieged with a 40% spike in burglaries and other crimes promoted a class about how to pick locks and it was in the mayor's newsletter. It didn't go over well with some residents considering the city's crime problem. Mayor Jean Quan apologized for promoting the class and says she understands why people were upset about the listing. She says it was geared toward people who misplaced their keys. She says she'll do a better job reviewing the listings in her newsletter in the future.
