No. No. No. It goes like this:

What's a 5 foot 6 guy use to rob a McDonald's?

A SMALL caliber revolver.

I did not realize McDonalds @ that location was open @ 3am.

Also- Typical FF (Fast food) establishments with drive thru, usually only have drive thru open. Did the suspect present the weapon @ drive thru?

Pleasanton used to be a safe place to live, but with the on-going armed robberies, I think everyone needs to be more vigilant and report suspicious activities (even if the activities do not effect you)

This location makes it easy off/on freeway access. Perps could be from anywhere...

I'm not sure how this McDonald's was robbed at 3am, since at that time they are drive-thru only. Did they leave a door open? Did the perp break out a window? Sounds to me like they need to improve their security procedures given the spate of robberies Pleasanton is experiencing (mostly from the Other Side of the Hills folks).
I also find it interesting that at the same time we are experiencing this large increase in robberies and burglaries, Gov. Moonbeam Brown and his gaggle of left wing nut-job Legislators are doing everything they can to take away guns, so only the crooks will have guns.
