"Not bigoted. Oakland is East bay (Alameda County) and Livermore is East bay (Alameda county). San Jose is south bay. See the difference? " No. I don't even understand what you are trying to say. Does crime stop at the county line? Both of these cities are about equal distances away. With equal chances of crime coming from them. Oaklands murder rate is up roughly 5%, while San Jose is up roughly 15%. Yet people are more afraid of Oakland spilling into Livermore than San Jose.

I hope everyone read the part where it states this incident was "drug related". I don't understand how every crime in Livermore sparks the great Bart debate but this incident clearly has nothing to do with Bart going to Livermore! Livermore has crime without Bart being there! Wow! Shocker!

I believe that people in general are good natured and some are not. I believe our law enforcement in Livermore are among the best in the nation and I have confidence in them. Prisons are built for a reason, there are some who absolutely without a doubt belong there. I tend to believe that the majority of these crimes are likely to be an inside job, and some that are just random and horrifying no matter where you live. I think that crime is contributed by many factors and that drugs and poverty being the most common reasons for such crimes. To think that BART will increase crime, I would say that this most likely going to prove true. I also think to live in a bubble will not solve our problem or deliver us from our fears. Most criminals are not born criminals, they become criminals for many reasons and no community or family is immune to it. We have to remain tough on serious crime and explore sensible solutions to our communities drug problems, and constructive ways in dealing with them. People can learn from their mistakes, I learned from mine.
