A month back, we posted about Oakland's problem with sideshows on the city's streets, as well as a new law designed to shut them down by targeting participants. Apparently, the law hasn't been used yet, as there hasn't actually been a real-deal sideshow in Oakland since April. The East Bay Express reports that since adding more officers and cars to the late-night East Oakland streets, sideshows have all but disappeared. Thanks to Dateline for being late to the game, and boo to us for not being hip to the goings on in the 'hood.
