Any cameras around the mall may be able to identify the attackers. I can't believe that our Mall is not safe anymore, my daughter and friends ofter go alone to the Mall and spend couple of hrs. this is scary.

As I have stated before, I put alot of blame on the mall owners for the security issues at the mall. They should have more cameras in the common areas of the mall and the parking lots. I worked at a large mall in another state. That mall had it's own police force. There were cameras and detectors all over the parking garage. They had glass break detectors. There were no incidents like we have at Stoneridge. I would guess we will start to see the same at the outlets in Livermore, unless they do more there.
It's up to the mall to provide a safe environment. If department stores can have cameras that can focus on a cash register which can record exactly what the cashier is doing (so the employees were told and I believe it), I don't see why the mall owners cannot provide high resolution security in the mall.
Stoneridge is a dumpy mall anyways. It needs a serious facelift. The problem is there is no competition in the East Bay. I've lived in smaller metropolitan areas with much nicer malls.

You are just now figuring out that the mall is not safe? Where have you been? Bart to the mall brings thugs, the need for full time outside vehicle parking lot security, robberies, etc. the mall is not a good place for young teens to hang out.

Obviously this could have been avoided had all parties been armed with assault guns, as per second amendment rights. For the Founding Fathers desired to have all people with tudes armed to the hilt, especially when at the mall.

What is wrong with this mall? Problems in the parking lot. Problems inside the mall. Do they think just because they are in Pleasanton that they don't need security? Crimes are happening because the suspects are getting away with it. I seldom shop there because I don't want to be a victim. Come on PPD and Mall owners, get with it.
