Why are we getting Oakland trash in Pleasanton? We need to build a wall between us and Oakland. Bart needs to skip that stop as well.

I agree 100% that these criminals should feel the full extent of the law. I applaud the Pleasanton Police Department. As always, a job very well done.

I am not sure I understand the deportation part though. Where in the article does it say they are from another country?

Congratulation to our Police Department for doing a great job to keep our streets as safe possible. For the 1st remark. Oakland like everywhere else has bad people bad places just like here. I know people who live in Oakland that have beautiful homes and live in nice neighborhoods. Lots of changes have made to make Oakland a better place to live and visit. It is sad when we keep some areas a bad rap, when we have not gone to to see the changes. No matter where you live good or bad there will always be some kind of mess as I call it. There is know way getting around it. That is why we are #bettertogether.
we must learn to be kind to one another.

One more comment - I've lived here 45 years and have seen lots of drug use by what appears to be "nice Pleasanton people" - adults and children. Open your eyes Pleasanton Parent. Just because Pleasanton is a "rich" town, doesn't mean there aren't any "rich lowlifes".

If you are a criminal, thug, low life, loser you should stay clear of Pleasanton Meadows and Pleasanton period. No hate of law abiding citizens.

Why wouldn't you hate these type of people? Career criminals sucking up tax dollars, not contributing to society's betterment....youre right I'm tired of people like this pulling down society.

We have so many people who want help and can't get it because of people like this.

Why aren't you fired up about people like this in our community?

That parking lot has been shady for a long time. Known for drug dealing. Buildings and dumpsters frequently tagged. Pleased to see PPD plainclothes officers working the area.

Pleasanton Parent -

Do you actually believe people drive to Pleasanton to meet their drug dealers and buy their drugs? The drug dealers are coming to Pleasanton because their customers live here.

You would be surprised at how many "nice" Pleasanton people on the outside are druggies in the inside.

Open your eyes....

I'm not blind to Pleasanton and drug use, and whether passing through or a crime of opportunity what difference does it make. They were caught, they're not the type of people we want in our community - are you of the position this isnt their fault and they shouldn't be punished and that we shouldnt demand harsh punishment for these types of events
