My goodness such an increase in crime for Danville!! This will be nothing, City Council, when your ghettofied low low low income friends move in----as one resident suggested a while back we should welcome them with your addresses.

As an example, compare San Ramon's crime before low, low income arrived and what it is now. The writing is on the wall. Don't ignore it.

Is anybody else sick-to-death of these tired, fearful bleatings from cloistered folks with more dollars than sense?

Let's say you've worked hard and earned your success -- did you really make all that effort so you can live in fear that somebody might take some of it? Buy insurance, get a dog, take reasonable precautions and Live Your Life!

Doomsday has been postponed indefinitely.

Gee Mann...it people like you that contribute to the problems. Buy insurance, what a low intelligent comment...Buy Insurance..I would suggest buying a bat and take it with when you go for a summer walk through Danville.

Remember the new game in town is "Knock Out". Maybe not yet but it coming..

And by the way I like Ann's comment....keep up the fight Ann, you know what it all about.

And Gee Mann. wake up..

Thanks for Listening Julia Pardini from Alamo

Let's be clear. I'll go slow for the folks who move their lips when they read.

1. All housing must still meet town requirements and get planning commission and council approval.

2. Most of Danville's affordable housing is small in-law type apartments.

3. Crime in Danville and in San Ramon is among the lowest in the state.

4. There's been no increase in crime in San Ramon that can't be traced to opportunistic outsiders.

5. There's no link between affordable housing and increased crime.

All of this can backed up by anyone who can use a search engine, but please, don't let the facts get in the way of your opinion.

I understand. You're afraid. Change is scary, but there's no big bad wolf out there ready to blow your house down.

Thanks Get Real- it is refreshing to see logic instead of crazy. I am more afraid of talking with that Julia lady and absorbing her negative undercurrent, than I ever have been of affordable housing and new people.

Thanks, Julia, for endorsing my post. I will continue to work tirelessly to contribute to the problem.

BTW, I tried going for a walk with my bat, but I just kept tripping over things in the dark -- mostly dead crime victims. So I tried a different bat, but she raised a huge ruckus -- and now I'm not allowed in the Senior Center any more.

This is from Associated Press, not an opinion. Property crime and auto theft increased in California after the state began releasing inmates early. This is according to an independent study of crime trends driven by the politically corect "REALIGNMENT" program to reduce prison populations.
About 18,000 have been released and more to come when the deadline in February arrives. This came from federal orders that went to Gov. Brown. Property crimes rose 8 Percent in California as it dropped in the nation. Ok fellow naysayers and utopians I guess we can still say it isn't happening here. Let's live in la-la land and don't lock your doors. I for one will lock mine.
