  1. Watch for a retaliation shooting im sure. Since no one saying anything. Everyone is scared of this person

  2. Don’t ya just love all the new people that move into east county and then complain, “what is happening to my town”?

    I guess they just don’t realize that with population comes problems. I was never like this back in the 70’s and 80’s. Maybe if they would all move back to wherever the hell they came from, the shootings, homeless and other issues would go with them! Sorry if it is offensive but it is what it is. MECGA!

    • We don’t live in East County – never have. Our daughter lives in Oakley, otherwise I wouldn’t be the least bit interested.

      • Thanks so much Nick… Another dose of apathy is just what is about to make our community like the those of the rust belt… I do so look forward to living in the lovely government supported neighborhoods like those in South Side Chicago or Detroit!!! Who cares!!! It’s NIMBY, right? Well, you’d better care… Because pretty soon, it will be in your back yard! When I moved here only 20 years ago, I didn’t have to lock my doors when I went to the store…. Now… I lock the door when I go next door! Sucks

        • Yip…moved here 28 years ago. Was a great place to raise my children and I too didn’t lock my doors. Now we have to lock the doors and pull the blinds to change our minds.

  3. Just wait for the next couple huge developments to start. You ain’t seen nothin yet. It’s our fault for voting in progrowth politicians who fail to negotiate real mitigation for police and fire services. We now have high crime, high density housing, low income housing, and no fire protection. Think about that next time you vote.

    • A large number of my friends have left California and these are people who are well off and in a high tax bracket. They are sick and tired of what has happened here and the encroachment of high density development. If I didn’t have a job I simply love, I’d follow suit.

  4. The former Gloden State doesnt even qualify for a bronze medal.

    The politics are the worst here. Next time you see a Democrat thank them for effing up our State. The own the situation, lox, stock and barrel.
