Please join us at Crown Beach as we wade-out to honor Raymond Zack, and to show how easily his rescue could have been accomplished by Alameda Fire and Police Departments. Your presence on the beach will help us press the city to hold accountable those who failed Raymond Zack.

I have two thoughts with the "Memorial" wade in for Mr. Zack. The first: Shame. Taking this human tragedy and turning it into a political event seems ruthless. The second thought: Great! Perhaps the audible Alameda band of malcontents will now support Measure C, which will provide the infrastructure funding to allow "those responsible" for public safety to "be accountable." The movie? The lawyers? Folks are capitalize on Mr. Zack's suffering - legitimate or not. As a woman who lost her brother to suicide, let the dear man's soul rest in peace. If you've concerns for the growing trend towards suicide as a viable "option" to living in this painful world, join me and thousands of others in the Walk out of Darkness event June 9th sponsored by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

I have to agree with Rev. Gabrielle on this one. As a mortician for the last 17 years, I am outraged by this group of merry idiots who would seek to twist an obviously psychologically troubled man's death into their own agenda to stick it to the firefighters/police of Alameda. Raymond Zack had no idea that his own suffering in life and at the time of his death would be turned into a political circus. Hundreds of people seek to end their own suffering every year in Alameda. Mr. Zack was simply unfortunate enough to end his in the pool of water that lapped upon the shores of Alameda's merry band of political malcontents. Very sad commentary and an insult to the many fine people who have struggled with mental illness and depression.
