Fights over expensive sneakers is an urban ghettopian phenommenon that happens mostly in "diverse," "urban" cities like Detroit, Oakland, Atlanta and Washington DC. Isn't it great that the BART train into Stoneridge is bringing in "diversity" and attracting "new customers"?

I can't wait until this "diversity" slowly changes the make-up of the mall until all of the upper-end retail anchors like Coach and Nordstroms have left and all that is available is running shoes, baby clothes, cheap jewlery and the latest in gang member apparel - including Scarface and "stop snitchin'" teeshirts.

Sadly they were ighting over some "Made in China by enslaved children" product.

I'll take a Made in USA New Balance anytime.

P*Town Truthtellers: How do you know these two individuals took BART? THe one from Livermore didn't. Do you know for sure the guy from Castro Valley took BART? I wish you well inside your safe, little bubble.

Pretty sad Stories over the years as we See and Hear about people fighting over Sneakers, Black Fridays Holiday sales, Etc. As we progress in many ways with technology we seem to go backwards in our everyday self respect in the way we treat our fellow human beings! 2012....and yet at times we act as if we were still living in the days of the Cavemen? How Sad, Embarrassing and Ignorant for the Valley, The State, This Nation!

Did you really say black Friday? Cavemen fighting over tennis shoes? Is this place turning into Oakland or what?
