WOW...Danville is getting rough...The people that come to Danville the more trouble there will be...

You can thank your brain dead local town leaders...did I say leaders, I really don't know what I was thinking about.

Good luck and good future Danville.

Thanks for listening, Happy Holiday Season from Julia Pardini in Alamo

Carjacking at Marshall's.....really? In broad daylight no less! Now that's getting scary.

Wait until the city council's low low low low dregs move in if you want to see violent crime CLIMB!

Just look at the stats of Redwood City or San Leandro!

WHAT????? Why isn't there an officer(s) in that parking lot anyway? It's right off the freeway and that lot is full of questionables on foot anyway. There was a young adult woman last year walking around that lot with a baby stroller and no baby but knocking on people's windows asking for money for formula for her baby. She was a junkie with tracks and a tank top in freezing weather, obviously not feeling the cold and frantic for,that next fix.
Now, we have carjackers? After lunch??? Did they find who? Was vehicle recovered? Most of all, how's that vehicle owner? We better get a grip in this valley. People are coming to search for valuables to steal & resell. Nobody gave them permission.
The priority this year better be safety in the valley vs how many dollars can be made from tickets and property taxes and which council member needs a raise.
It is all really disturbing.
Oh, and lucky us (neighbors). We don't look forward to low income housing or squishing massive autos on these two lane country roads to get our children to & from school.

Raised my family in Danville, to get out of the city and for the great schools, weather, and safety. Face it folks, if you have the mindset that we had 25 years ago, then it is time to go back to the city. The Danville PD are nothing more than a sad version of a failing late night sitcom, but without the popcorn. Watch out for your brake lights and reg tags, as that is all those sheriff's watch, in between coffee and whoppers. Good Luck !!

Went to Costco yesterdy and low and behold they had a security guard in a car patrolling the lot. I asked someone in the store and they said they hire the security guard during the holidays. I've never seen one there before this year. Guess they know more about what is going on then the local residents do. Now that all the lowlifes know that this is a nice place to be they want to live here too though they can't afford it. But wait a minute, our wonderful leader said they could and deserve it like everyone else - even though they didn't work for it. Welcome to the new world order as mandated by our government.

And , so I was thinking about WHY I would even go to Marshall's?????
Because with "our" demographics, we have some pretty nice labels AND the discount, especially in this tight economy & monthly bills that just go up ( the new American Nightmare- not to mention aging parents). So, why not go down the street and buy what we like for a discount, especially for Holidays?
So, because we are looking for a deal TOO....... Is why a carjacker SHOULNT be at MARSHALLS? Isn't that an oxymoron?
