How sad for Livermore. I live in Pleasanton and this is unheard of. Just when Livermore was starting to get a little bit of a decent reputation, this happens. Hope these trouble makers get caught.
Stan Ford September 03, 2013 at 09:25 PM
Oh please Kris Smith, unheard of in Pleasanton. You sound like a snob.
Robert September 03, 2013 at 11:50 PM
Kris-you need to get your nose out of the air and quit sounding like crime has never hit Pleasanton-
Tupac September 04, 2013 at 12:02 AM
Kris- I went on pleasanton patch and found this.... http://pleasanton.patch.com/groups/police-and-fire/p/mcdonalds-robbed-by-masked-gunman

Kris you my friend are a fool if you believe things like this don't happen in pleasanton.
kris smith September 04, 2013 at 09:33 AM
Things happen, yes, but we don't have windows being shot out, apartments being blown up because people are making hash, we don't have dead bodies found in our golf course. We don't have to worry about our kids wearing colored clothing in fear they will be mistaken for a gang member. Get your heads out of your a$$.
Nathan21 September 04, 2013 at 09:47 AM
Kris-No you just have woman getting raped by fake cops, people getting ran over by crazy drivers, & people getting shot at bars. Get your head out your a**!
Terry September 04, 2013 at 10:27 AM
in another city in the Midwest the windows were shot out by a local auto glass repair company. They were just trying to increase business. a disgruntled employee tipped off the police.
K September 04, 2013 at 11:35 AM
Come on you guys, Pleasanton is a much better city than Livermore with a zero crime rate... At least us people in Livermore aren't stuck up and think that they are better than everyone. I would never live in Pleasanton.
Lori Pavich September 04, 2013 at 12:50 PM
I went to high school in Pleasanton, but now live in Livermore. I wouldn't trade my life in Livermore for anything. Love Pleasanton too, though. Grow up everyone, healthy cross-town rivalry stops after high school sports!
Jim September 04, 2013 at 12:52 PM
Hey Kris. Glad you live in such an upscale neighborhood. Do you live next the upstanding citizen CODY HALL!!! Yeah look up this upscale kid. You keep Cody. And the McD's gunman.
Jim September 04, 2013 at 12:58 PM
Kris. And Aaron Hall. Cody's dad. A two time convicted felon arrested on felony charges again. Yep your right Ptown is SOI much better. Actually maybe it was Aaron he is out on bail and has assault rifles. Get your snooty nose out of the air it stinks.

It's weird that it's all those streets in Sunset West, and then Placer Circle over by Portola, and Daisyfield Drive by Hagemann park. It's like a group of people did it, and shot out windows when they were picking people up.
Becky September 05, 2013 at 10:40 AM
@kris smith, P-town is more of a white collar crime area.
Becky September 05, 2013 at 05:08 PM
@kris smith, How do we know it wasn't people coming over from Pleasanton to shoot up our cars.
Christian Holm September 05, 2013 at 05:20 PM
Guys: this probably was a group of wealthy kids running around town with their toy BB gun bought for one of them by a rich parent. Yeah this could have happened in Pleasanton... or anywhere else. If it was a gang, it wouldn't be a BB Gun, it would be a 9mm or something similar.

Wow everyone is so quick to blame the people that shot at the cars in this incident but are the cars just helpless victims of malicious killers? Let us think of all the times a poor little squirrel was walking about and BOOM side swiped. I had a cat once who really enjoyed waving to cars as they drove bye. After warning him over and over that cars are not his friend he continued to do what he loved to do. Until one fateful night a CAR decided that he not only wasn't going to wave back to my little fluffy friend, he was going to kill him! Now let me ask "you people" this, do you still think the CARS are innocent as they make us believe? I didn't think so. CARS are natures serial killers. They don't care who the hurt. So before you start blaming the people trying to help are fuzzy little friends you should take a look outside and glace at a real criminal, your CAR. Remember people don't kill cars, cars kill people.
Becky September 05, 2013 at 05:34 PM
Maybe it was one person who did this. One person who spent months chronicling infractions by other drivers, writing down license plates and addresses, biding their time until that one glorious night of revenge.
kris smith September 05, 2013 at 07:15 PM
@ Becky, not sure if you are being sarcastic, but, this is a very good point
Becky September 05, 2013 at 08:32 PM
@ kris smith, I was being sarcastic. I wasn't sure if you were being sarcastic about Livermore having a bad reputation compared to Pleasanton.
T. Brickle September 06, 2013 at 06:53 PM
@ Cat-Seriously? I desperately hope I am missing the joke in your comment. As much as I love my dog and would hate for her to succumb to the same fate as your "fluffy friend", I think we need to keep focused on the bigger picture and realize the acts perpetrated by these individuals have caused trouble for a lot of good people. It doesn't matter where these low-lifes call home or whether or not it happens in one city but not in another. What matters is a lot of folks have now had to spend their hard-earned money on repairing the damage that some degenerate or degenerates call "having fun". The other part of the bigger picture here is to get to know your neighbors and keep aware of who is in your neighborhoods and what they are doing. If something doesn’t seem right: Report it, don’t ignore it!
Such Troll September 06, 2013 at 07:12 PM
@ T. Brickle, Seriously? You my friend did, in fact, desperately miss the joke there. It has become clear that you are not to intelligent. You must be in law enforcement. Anyway, it's hard to believe that with the extent of this crime and the amount of victims there are that not one person had seen the car that caused it all. Point the blame in whatever direction you would like but it does seem to be a random act of criminal activity. I surely as a teen did my fair share of stupid things, but this is way beyond that. O and T.Brickle you are an idiot, in my humble opinion.
T. Brickle September 06, 2013 at 07:41 PM
@ Cat-My apologies for missing the humor. I actually agree with your comments other than your determination of my intelligence level and dispersion of the law enforcement community, of course. Perhaps our exchange is a perfect example of how sticking to the point at hand, instead of criticizing or attacking a fellow patch reader for sharing their opinion in an open forum like this, is more important and productive. A least it is, in my humble opinion.
