The Belmont police could have walked over.

The store owners are selling a deadly, addictive drug. The thieves are small time losers. Who isRead More more dangerous? The inventory and the door are probably covered by insurance. Maybe they just needed a smoke.

Walgreens needs to look at all their previous videos to match these criminals as they knew exactlyRead More where to go and what to take. They've been in the store before. Shame that our police station is just a block away and they couldn't take care of this while the Walgreens alarm was blasting.

if you reeeeeeallly want to see a "change in corporate culture" towards taking moreRead More care....Put the Board of Directors in State Prison for 5 years........Other than that...all they are worried about is how to record the payment of the fine on their books....and charge it off as the cost-of-doing-business
Concerned Citizen April 22, 2014 at 06:38 am
And PG&E is putting out all kinds of folksy TV ads making themselves sound like they are allRead More about people and families....WHAT A GIANT CROCK!

...wait, a large corporation pleads not guilty to obvious crimes? I'm shocked!

Everyone is against paying taxes: taxes bad! - everyone wants the services that taxes support, likeRead More law enforcement - law enforcement good! Let's see, law enforcement good but no taxes... humm, wonder why they have become rolling tax collectors?

These following laws have been on the books for years: •86 for distracted driving violationsRead More •38 for pedestrian safety violations •25 for stop sign violations •10 for seatbelt violations If you can't abide by the law, then plain and simple you have to pay the piper. I live in South San Francisco and just like any other city we have traffic cameras to catch those that run red lights. The thing I don't understand is as to why there isn't a law to penalize those who hold up traffic. I am certain I am not the only one who has idled behind someone who is going to make a right turn but is stopped because of a red light. If there is cross traffic or any instance where another driver has the right of way, this isn't a problem. The problem arises when a driver will sit at a red light even though they can safely proceed with their right turn. I would dearly love to see the SSF PD and other police departments start giving people tickets for obstructing traffic for no good reason.
John Negley April 21, 2014 at 12:27 pm
I am surprised at peoples responses of negativity. Have any of you driven anywhere recently? PeopleRead More drive without a care about safety at all. The only way to stop the behavior is to ticket people for it. Stop complaining and using the rue of it being bad because it is generating revenue. 86 distracted driving violations!! 86 people that were talking on their phone or texting which could have resulted in killing someone. 38 pedestrian safety violations. That means that pedestrians where in danger of getting struck, and you people are complaining?! Shaking my head.

Not a surprise. Always knew something was up in there. This kid was there forever, always kindaRead More rude, even to kids. No way the other "workers" didn't know.
Marlys Balsamo April 10, 2014 at 09:54 am
That place is bad news. 30 years ago the guy who owned that one and the one in sc was stalking me.Read More He had a camera in the women's bathroom. I had to identify him thru some photos - apparently scpd already had him on their radar. Haven't set foot in a BR ever since.

Adios, loser. They'll like you in Quentin. See you in 25 years, IF you survive prison.

This is very sad news for the family. Everyone who knows them is supportive of X and his wife andRead More kids. This is an example of the courts getting it wrong and then destroying all lives in the process.
Sam Chetcuti April 13, 2014 at 07:38 pm
It looks like X is a head case. Is it only seven years that he will be locked up? What will agitateRead More him the next time? Everyone loses their temper now and then, however attempting to throw your wife off a bridge is a little extreme. Good riddance X.

I used to live on the East Side of San Jose. That sort of thing was commonplace among PCP abusersRead More in the South Bay back in the 1980s.
Francie April 7, 2014 at 11:52 am
Gee, that's funny, I lived in the East side of San Jose (Evergreen) never saw any of that type ofRead More behavior happen in my neighborhood.
vahall April 6, 2014 at 11:49 pm
Michele, you assume the registry protects at least one child. How can you say that? Do you knowRead More any children "protected" by the registry? On the contrary, I have two things to say; first, the VAST majority of child sexual abuse is perpetrated within the child's own home or close social circle, NOT by persons on any registry. Second, by "protecting one child" (or pretending to), how many children are you causing harm to? By these children, I mean those whose parents/family members/loved ones are on the registry, and who suffer collateral consequences. Children who are ridiculed or bullied at school because of a family member's status, innocent children who are victimized when vigilante violence follows public registry, children who committed no crime but whose parent/family member/loved one can not secure a home, can not obtain a job, and is precluded from reuniting with the family or reintegrating into society. In addition to harming plenty of children, this behavior by persons pretending to protect children makes NO ONE safer.

The purpose of Offender Watch is to lessen the anxiety of those living and working in San MateoRead More County. I guess you have no former sex offenders living or working in San Mateo County, who might not appreciate their and their family's information gratuitously emailed to anyone who signs up for it. The registry damages families, inhibits rehabilitation and provides A FALSE SENSE OF SAFETY to parents.
Shaira Leah Gomez April 7, 2014 at 11:24 pm
It has been a great help for everyone, for any individual that this site has been established. WeRead More can certainly track sex offenders in our community. Which we can easily avoid them or we can take action on how to deal with them. We can't predict where a sex offender could harm us, so it's a better way to fight against them. There is nothing more important than being safe. We should always take certain actions against it; as for me, I found a certain safety application on android phone that helps me track sex offenders on my phone, and just a click on a panic button it could create a conference call to a 24/7 call center, a safety network and could escalate a call to a nearest 911 if it's a real emergency, check this site out for more http://safekidzone.com/?a_aid=52f12f7275422

Certainly a tragic event, a pipeline failure that was built in the 1940's. The San Bruno Mayor andRead More associated politico's view this as a retirement event - the spin machines are grinding already. By next week they will be squealing that it was premeditated! This will become a feeding frenzy in an attempt to fill the government coffers. They will then loot those coffers and quietly retire.
dragon April 4, 2014 at 04:37 pm
This was a tragic event. However, can the city of San Bruno afford the cost behind this and alsoRead More have some transparency. We do have many homes broken into through out the city, invasions, car jacks, stealing tires and rims off residents vehicles in front of there homes, graffiti, and backward thinking. Don't forget there is new committee formed that is in control of $70,000,000 dollars. To much power playing and business as usual.

PG&E Thought it could beat Karma with 'Spin' and Millions in advertising and influence peddling.Read More Thanks to the free thinking people of the Bay Area... They are now going to have to spend their Big bucks on Maintenance and Safety... Concept eh!

Phillip, You speak from experience knowing where the Anger management places are obviously. It alsoRead More appears you are the Head commentator and Cheer leader for this post and other posts. You lighten up with the key board yourself. There are places to entertain boredom such as your City Park with a good book, not hiding behind a keyboard sticking your nose where it doesn't belong. You can lighten up, don't make a suggestion to me if you can't handle a strong woman with her own opinions. Last I checked freedom of speech still exists here in the good old USA.
Phillip Bailey April 3, 2014 at 04:08 pm
If you're keeping score, we'll see. I have nothing against the strong female. My wife and twinRead More daughters are such.

"Disgraced Senator Yee" -- if that's the case, then every person in Congress should beRead More "disgraced" for taking lobbyists' and corporation money to do their bidding, which they do without restraint, to the detriment of We, the People. There are 30 - 40 lobbyists per member of congress, and no one says "peep" about how rigged our system of government is...
