Oh shut up Andy.
Teresa January 11, 2012 at 08:12 AM
Right, Andy, like there's a city that is 100% free of all crime. You're welcome to never set foot in our city.
Mrs J. January 11, 2012 at 08:57 AM
Andy please tell us "WHY" and "HOW" we brought this upon ourselves? Please help me or us understand, what the heck you mean... don't you think crime is everywhere and unfortunately it's only going to get worse... WHAT THE @%# IS WRONG WITH YOU?? The guy got shot in the stomach, for Pete's Sake show some Compassion!! Yeah maybe he might of been involved in something illegal or he himself might be illegal alien.. still doesn't make it right to shot another human. So goes to show you cannot run from any kind of sin... everything caughts up with you. God is a God of justice!
Mrs J. January 11, 2012 at 09:03 AM
Haha... Your not worth it Andy...are you bored?? Real men with respect wouldn't be talking or acting like that! You really must be a joy to live with. :D
Jackie January 11, 2012 at 09:12 AM

What's going on with this neighborhood the last few years. It just gets worse and worse. From the constant firecrackers to the cares going up and down the streets peeling out and now what seems to be multiple shootings on a more frequent basis. Time to move out of Livermore I guess. Canada here I come.
Andy Halvorsen January 11, 2012 at 09:24 AM
I hear Mexico has less crime than North Livermore these days
Big easy January 11, 2012 at 09:28 AM
Yeah, this wouldn't happen at a Sandals.
Andy Halvorsen January 11, 2012 at 09:29 AM
oh man, those buffets and open bars...just like Pine St used to be haha!
Big easy January 11, 2012 at 09:39 AM
Funny. The house that LPD just cleared is also the same home the victim lives in.
Teresa January 11, 2012 at 11:29 AM
Andy, your lack of compassion isn't funny. Especially to those of us that have no other choice but to live near this violence. I guess your mama didn't teach you that if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. You live in San Ramon and you're kidding yourself of you think that place is any better. Do us a favor and take your tasteless humor back to open mic night.
Patti January 11, 2012 at 03:58 PM
I must say, if not for this publication, we wouldn't know a lot about what happens around this place we call home. So, thanks Patch for the updates.
Sandy January 11, 2012 at 04:30 PM
Lived on san ramon for three years......couldnt wait to get out .....people were unbelievably rude . My car was broken into twice ......and my neighbor's son was a meth head .....and we lived in a more affluent part of town !!
Your Wife Your Life January 11, 2012 at 06:02 PM
Andrew. You should be ashamed of yourself. Your mama did bring you up with manners. You judge people by their skin and that creates hate. What is wrong with you? Your not the Andy I've known my whole life if you believe your own propaganda?
Chris January 12, 2012 at 02:20 AM
Hey Andy don't let all these hippie, liberals sweat you! I totally agree with you. There's less crime in Mexico because they're all here shooting each other & filling up our jails. If we weren't the land of "come & live on our dime" we wouldn't even be having this discussion!
agklm1 January 12, 2012 at 02:52 AM
i lived on that street for many years. The police and some of the neighbors formed a neighbor coalition many years ago. despite many attempts and ideas to stimulate interest it slowly faded away. the police do a great of patroling and having a presence there.
Amy January 12, 2012 at 03:45 PM
How does any of this have to do with what has happened ? Why is everyone fighting instead of finding a way to stop this kind of stuff from happening ???????
David January 12, 2012 at 06:09 PM
Come on Gang bangers if your going to play you will pay
David January 12, 2012 at 06:10 PM
Come on LPD clean these low lifes out of here. How hard can that be ????
DC February 01, 2012 at 11:59 PM
You guys should read the police blotter. Most of the police calls are from the south side of town. Still, I agree that we've got noone to blame but ourselves - until that border is sealed up to all but legal immigrants we're going to end up with Mexico's trash. Which is exactly what we've got. I encourage any of this trash to come to my house, though. I'd be happy to start work on cleaning up the immigration problem.

The city first has to care and make it a priority! Our city does not. The north side of town has been neglected since I have lived here. 30 yrs. I have watched the rest of the town get taken care of while the north side gets ignored. The litter is everywhere and is out of hand. When you let an area get run and not care about it, the people living in the area tend to go that way also. Shameful! Articles have been written for years about what our city has done / or not done to the north side and pleas from citizens have been sent to our officals. They have been ignored. We are fixing up downtown but people have to drive through the northside to get there. City Officals: Outsiders can ses how we take care of our city but what they are driving through. What do you think they are saying??? Lately it seems as through there is a lot of issues happening close to Open Heart Kitchen. I am hopiing this is not drawing in the issues. If so as a city we need to address this.

DC,We have to get together to implement the plan before the revolution.U.S Navy combat experienced 1974-1980.
