Again Mr. Wohltmann is trying to advertise the wealth of Pleasanton to every ghetto-thug in the East Bay.

Also, I don't normally agree with Mr. Wohltmann's M.O. of shaming, berating and blaming victims - but I am with him on this one - the $6,000 bike owner has little common sense to own such an expensive bicycle in the first place, and while living in an apartment no less - and he lacks the common sense to at least put it indoors. I don't believe that anyone "deserves" to get ripped off, but this guy was asking for it - I sue hope he had renter's insurance.

Finally, why the disclaimer about innocent until proven guilty? That used to go without saying, but I guess with our current president's "unique interpretation" of the Constitution, nothing is like it used to be. I guess Mr. Wohltmann is worried Dawnesha will sue for defamation cause reporting her H&M heist be rayciss.

I think the fact that he is living in an apartment shows that at least has some common sense. He appears not to have bought in to that home-ownership as wealth creation nonsense.

John, I'm sorry you can't afford to own your own home. Maybe the meantime, there may be one more vacant apartment on the market soon.
