Here we go again. Please Pleasant Hill, we need more section 8 apartments. More laundromats, liquor stores, and check cashing places with flashing lights. Oh how diverse we are! I feel so warm and fuzzy. Who cares that black men are terrorizing merchants up and down CC Blvd. What counts is that the man felt like we are an "inclusive" community. As the black man left the store I wonder if the clerk said "I voted for Obama!, I voted for Obama! That would be pure customer service.

Hmmm. Let's not jump to conclusions, JBN. Based on the Yelp report for this business, the robber might have had other reasons for his criminal act. http://www.yelp.com/biz/super-five-food-and-liquor-pleasant-hill Seriously, though, I'm relieved no one was injured. But your diatribe does not help anything, IMO.

I totally agree. There are way too many section 8 places. I'm sorry but our pleasant little community is no longer so pleasant. We need more police presence and should hire more officers. Sorry that this crime fits a racial stereotype, but c'mon people! We need to regress the "progressive" and be a little pragmatic. Safety in our community should be top priority!

It won't get better any time soon either with fewer jobs. Just like families smart enough to spend below their needs when times get tough, so do businesses. Desperate people do desperate things; closer someone is to the bottom, more likely they are to become desperate.
