Two women beaten in Christmas Eve mall attack

Original post made on Dec 28, 2012

A Christmas Eve dispute over manners apparently led to the beating of a mother and daughter by two other women at the Stoneridge mall. The incident began when one of the victims, the daughter, heard one of the suspects cough, and told her to cover her mouth when she did so, according to a police report. That led to a brief, heated dispute.

This is ridiculous! I will continue to do more and more of my shopping online to avoid the lunacy and safety risks associated with Stoneridge Mall and Broadway Plaza. It is not even enjoyable to go either place any longer since I always feel like I need to look over my shoulder.

Wow. Utterly tacky. That said, I have seen repeatedly hispanic young women fighting young women. Just unreal. Talk about low lifes...Glad the perpetrators were apprehended and will nailed with a police record. Deservedly so.

Frankly david? I'd give my "eye teeth" for them to ban cellphones MORE...Is there anything more obnoxious than being in a public place and having these people blab away within a foot or two of you when you're shopping for one thing or another? At a play? In a theater? At the Dr's office? The worse offenders? Mothers with kids in tow! Ugh! Blah - blah - blah, excuse me?!

The courteous thing (obvious one would think) is to remove yourself from people in close proximity and THEN use your phone in a quieter if not private space. I observe that occurs maybe, 1 out of 5 times. Utterly obnoxious habit.

The dirtbags have found good hunting ground. This is what's wrong with America. We have lost our civility as a society. Kid's are encouraged to call adults by their first names. The use of please and thanks you, is all but forgotten. Hip hop culture has eeked its way into the suburbs. Parent your children well. Irony, a fight breaks out over common courtacy afforded to so few these days. GO to China and see how they live, bumping into eachother with no mind. It is coming here if we don't wake up.

The minute BART was extended out to Pleasanton/Dublin, it brought that lovely low life element into the Tri-Valley....The stoneridge mall is not filled with riff-raff, not to mention the increase in car thefts, like smash and grabs and petty burglary crap going on....yipppeee great move to "train" in the low lifes and make our tri-valley community co-mingle with everyday thugs....Super good plan city planners.....

Thank heaven for Broadway Plaza in Walnut Creek, cause there's a tad less crime and bart arrives to far away for the average thug to walk on over...I'm so over the melting pot invasion and 5-families per household that's hitting the Tri-Valley and Particularly San Ramon area....where are these foreigners coming from and when are they returning to their mother countries.....ugghhhhhhh!

Racist much?

It was OK for your ancestors to come here but not for the current generation? Seriously?

If we want to stay ahead of the curve, we want the best and brightest from everywhere to find a home here.
