So, it is not a crime to leave an unconscious person possibly dying in the street, its a fact of life. Hopefully, the identities of those involved are made public. A civil trial would accomplish that.

Yes, it sure seems strange that if Mr. Lamont was the aggressor, why were there no calls to bring charges against him? Something seems missing here.

Wow...where are all the "shame to PPD" folks? Take a civics class you morons! The Police do their job much better than other departments.

Karma will get the punks and their wealthy parents. It obvious what is going on here. To the parents of those boys, you have raised horrible young men who would leave a man for dead and not call the police to get him help. May God help you. To the DA, you are a liberal, look the other way politician who could care less about another human being. To the wife of the guy left for dead, you are also a victim and we will continue to pray for you and your family. I'm sorry that justice has not been served and your husband never got his side of the story out there. This, unfortunately has shaken my faith in the justice system.

What a surprise. Can't help to think that this may be another case where history is being written by the victors.

Thank you for the very informative article, Glenn. Good job. I would not expect a criminal prosecution of teens who panicked and ran when Mr. Lamont went down. If a police investigation revealed Mr. Lamont to be the aggressor, who are these commentors to contradict that notion, unless they have evidence they have not revealed? The county is being uncommonly transparent, here. More so than the STILL unresolved Spencer Freeman case, anyway.

Look at what recently happened in Florida. The boys may have taken off not realizing Mr. Lamont was that seriously injured. I find the police investigate thouroghly..

Yep. Big shortage of police bashers. Looks like Pleasanton PD did their job just fine. Thank you Pleasanton PD.
