Can anyone read what the poster above said?
I feel like it's someone who just became legal, and doesn't want anymore people here.
I doubt the AZ border plays much of a role in crime in Mountain View.
I agree crime is on the rise here, but I feel it is due to the poor economy.
Hopefully we won't have the GOP in power anytime soon, so the economy can recover from their wasteful spending of our money.
What is the name of the apartment?
why does the apartment name matter? people have lost their minds! yes the economy is bad but the number of robberies today are just unbelievable!
What was the "Airsoft pellet gun" for?
What would a $400 phone look like?
"... found upon entering her home that the back patio gate and sliding glass patio door were both open ..."
Were they opened by the gunman or they were left open by the tenant?
This is just another reason to the long list of reasons why I left this messed up city.
Hmmmm...a burglary on Latham St. committed by a Hispanic male.
Now there's a real surprise...not.
"This is just another reason to the long list of reasons why I left this messed up city."
Does this city refer to Mountain View?
"Hmmmm...a burglary on Latham St. committed by a Hispanic male."
Are guest day-laborers still congregating in front of the Seven-Eleven store at the corner of Latham and Escuela streets every day? They look like decent, hard-working folks...
I love to live in MV because she is the most beautiful and convenient city I know of to live and walk around...
I would like to thank the MV Police Department because the total crime rate is much better than 2005 and 2006 (the economically boom years for real estate and job market).
Total Crimes: 5999 (2009) 5812 (2008) 5643 (2007) 6587 (2006) 6099 (2005)
See [Web Link]
The total crime rate has dropped significantly compared to 2006 (height of the fake real estate boom). This is partially due to the fact that many potential perpetrators of various crimes have left the area due to lack of jobs/opportunities. In other words, the economic downturn has driven out significant number of potential criminals. At the same time, it has added an incentive to commit crime for those who are still in the area and now lack economic opportunities. But the net rate is evidently down.
I sound like a broken record, but this the 5th time in the last few weeks that I'm calling for issuance of a CCW to all law abiding citizens. Murders, rmed robberies, shootings, stabbings, gang assaults, home invasions, kidnappings, etc.
Time to get armed, get trained and defend ourselves... The police cannot be omnipresent. There was even an armed robbery with a Mac-10 sub-machinegun right in from of the police station this year.
DON'T WALK INTO YOUR HOME IF YOU NOTICE A BREAK IN! CALL THE PD.
Mr. Big, you indeed sound like a broken record. We are seeing a rise in crime, and you keep talking about carrying arms. Responding to violence with more violence does not make MV or any city a better place. That would just entitle criminals to also legitimately own guns, not exactly what I would personally like. We all should take a more active role in neighborhood watch and be very careful about securing our homes, as well as avoiding investigating by ourselves when suspecting that something is wrong, just saying.
A $400 phone would probably look like an iPhone 3GS.
Note that AT&T typically subsidizes iPhones because you're signing a two-year contract. The retail value of an iPhone 4 is $600. I believe here in California, you pay sales tax on the retail value of the handset, not the subsidized amount (I don't actually own a smartphone). The $199 iPhone 4 isn't really a $199 handset.
"Hopefully we won't have the GOP in power anytime soon, so the economy can recover from their wasteful spending of our money."
Sig, what planet do you live on? We all know who is responsible for the most wasteful spending.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
