So these morons can wake up, rob and brutalize good people at 6am but can't get a j-o-b instead, go figure.

Then again, the women headed east on 580, maybe they were headed to Lowe’s to fill out job applications.

They just needed a more efficient get away car. Do you realize how much gas those older gold Caddies consume?

Sounds like Oakland is invading Pleasanton. Look out people, here they come. First the mall, now the business areas. Next it will be our homes. Just can't get away from it.

Enjoyed Bill Smith's racial comment above. Actual sounds like Cholo from Livermore is in Pleasanton again.

A 60-year-old man should not have to worry about being robbed in a parking lot. This is sad.

We all know there is an alarming level of crime in Oakland and none of us would want to live there. We all fear Pleasanton becoming like the high crime cities why is that racial?

Cholo, do you know what happened in court today with Henry Germain? He was to enter a plea at 9 this morning. You seem to stay on top of things....

I do not think the people we are concerned about coming in from Oakland are here for culture. And I do not think anyone said anything about race.

I don't know about you but I can't remember the last time I hoped on BART and went to Oakland for culture. Maybe S.F., or Berkeley. The last time I was in Oakland was to look for my kidnapped niece who was being held in an apartment on Coliseum ave. Now that's culture........

If you leave Pleasanton and go east you do not go to Oakland. That would be west. So all the Oakland comments are wasted in this stream.

I am no longer a Pleasanton resident, but I do still have family in my good old hometown. I have only been gone for a couple of years, but everyone knew once BART was established in Pleasanton that everything would start going down. Pleasanton needs to stand strong and push these low life scumbags out of the area. Go back to Oakland where you belong! Even sitting on BART passing through Oakland, you see how bad it is and the reality of it. No one is being racist here, but the truth hurts.

Report any suspicious activity. PPD still responds quickly. As long as people stay involved and don't become immune to crime we can keep a lid on at least some of it. A guy was caught breaking into cars in Pleasanton Valley, last Sunday morning, because people saw him, called PPD and they responded in minutes.

Oh Cholo - The comments I read, kinda of stung a little bit,ah... Do you get it? we don't like your comments your old news!!!!!!

Crime always happens around this time of year in the tri-valley!!Easy access to bart,580/680. Happens every year!!!! It's sad...

I wish California was a concealed weapon permit(ofcourse for responsible humans)state because crime would not be so high!!

Pleasanton PD responding in minutes? No, I don't think so. Based on my personal experience, they don't care and they don't do their job efficiently. I have learned not to report anything to them. The only thing they care about is giving us taxing paying citizens a ticket. Bingo.

It's interesting how some people blame PD when they get a ticket instead of focusing on their own behavior. PPD's average response time for emergency calls is 5 minutes (Web Link Since you "don't report anything" who do you plan on calling if your house, car, etc. is being broken into?
