Oh, some real tough guys huh? Targeting two women alone in a parking lot. I need to start hanging out over there and I HOPE I see these guys trying something like that again.

That is awful.
It seems you can't go out anywhere now days with-out something bad going on!!
Hopefully there are security camera's so they could catch these kids.

It's a good reminder to be careful everywhere. I walk in that parking lot alone all the time and feel very safe!

Maybe we should follow Texas and allow people to carry handguns at all times. Try that again and 5 other people could take care of these kids.

Time of night would be helpful.

Thats horrible! what if the tased woman was pregnant or had a health condition? It's all a joke to these punks until someone dies. I hope they get caught, and i hope someone tases them back.

I sad that women have to be careful in dark parking lots and dark streets so be watchful and talk and meet where there is lot's of light. I hope these men are caught and sent to jail.

Maybe our police officers should patrol there? Or stake the place out?

That parking lot is too dark. With the price of movie tickets and popcorn, Century could do a better job providing a safe parking lot for its customers.

This is sickening. Citizens cannot go to public places without the fear of being stabbed or shot. We need a City Council that isn't afraid of insulting these wannabe gangsters by making sweeps of our parks, where a majority of these clowns "hang out". But that won't happen as long as we have a weak Council. These women aren't likely to go to the theater anytime soon. And yes, maybe it is time for the good guys to have permits to carry guns. That is the only way these thugs will think twice before victimizing anyone else.

I go places all the time in Mtn. View without the fear of being stabbed or shot. Just the other night I went to Nob Hill around 10:00pm, and I can't remember the thought of being stabbed or shot crossing my mind.

Try not to judge everyone with your skeptical eye. There's no proof that the people that did this are even from Mtn. View, no need to suspect everyone.

When is the Century 16 going to start providing security in that parking lot? It's been like 5 years now -- there's a car robbery practically once a week. I'm avoiding the place from now on.

Every Mountain View resident should get up and start cleaning this city up!!! This is absolutely ridiculous that these stupid teenagers/gang members are taking over this beautiful city. I used to go to that theatre all of the time but now I refuse to because the parking lot is too dark and there are stupid wannabe gang bangers hanging out every where. What the hell happened to the once quiet and peaceful Mountain View?? If the city counsel is not going to do anything.. then WE should! DO NOT hesitate to call the police if you see any suspicious activity!! If you are a tax-paying citizen, then you have every right to call the police.. please do so and keep these idiots off of the street!! Maybe if speak up then the city will hear us and finally clean this city up!!!
