He should be shot on the spot, no questions asked.

Pretty good and clear picture of the guy. If he has any sense he should turn himself in.

Also sure that there must be previous video of this guy at the same gas station because the video of this theft shows him quickly entering the store and then exiting the store a few seconds later. He knew exactly what he was going after when he entered the store.

I recommend everyone pitch in a little something to replace this money for the students. With zero bail, liberal judges these days, this guy will never be held accountable.

Wait...we don’t know this person’s situation. Perhaps they were having a mental break, maybe they were down and out from covid loss wages, maybe he’s a non federal government recognized permanent ca resident , maybe he just needed some cash.

So quick to condemn without knowing this persons struggle. So much personal privilege being displayed in this post.

$300 doesn’t get him arrested or thrown in jail. And he might get covid so they’d release him anyway.

Thank Nancy and Gavin.

PP, maybe the store was an easy mark and the person was just an opportunist.

To Pleasanton parent and other lefties who think the same. If this creep is caught he had better hope that he appears before the Honorable Judge Reardon. He would not fare Nearly well were I presiding. He know exactly what he was doing.
If he did the crime he needs to do the Time.

What time? You voted to let criminals out of jail if the offense is less than $950 and you don't want them to catch the wu-flu.

But SSSSSSSSSSSSHHHHHHHHHHHAAAAAAAAAAAAMMMMMMMEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! if you don't wear your fake mask.

Why did it take almost two weeks to get his photo in front of the public? It could be that PPD knows he'll get out of jail on a no-bail release anyway. Why waste the time. Welcome to California.

How is what this guy did any different than voting down a school funding initiative? At least he didn’t try to come on this blog and try to make himself out to be a community hero.

Oh well... good thing he is not cutting hair in a salon. He could be jailed for that. But stealing... it’s ok. Just a slap and a pass Welcome to the new world.
