How sad! I never thought there were so many racists in our little quaint town of Livermore. Shame on all of you for stereotyping and being malicious. There are BAD people in the world and they come in all colors. Please keep your negative racial comments to yourselves. Who knows where they came from? Let's focus on solving the crime and bringing the BAD guys to justice instead of worrying about their color or from what city they live.

What is a "non-racist Republican" these days other than a "Democrat"? Considering the turn the GOP took to woo those folks unhappy with the Civil Rights Movements in the 1960s and the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, wooing "Dixiecrats" and other hateful people who either believed or benefited from the great racial divisions of this country since Colonial Times, there really is no such thing as a "non-racist Republican". All of the Republicans out there, from registered voters to even office holders of publicly elected and appointed positions, are "racist" by the very definitions of what it means to be "Republican" these days and supporting platforms that engender discrimination, from overt and covert raced-based notions like requiring everybody to submit identification to vote, which is usually done when people show up at the polling place to vote, anyway, to requiring literacy tests and even restricting how one can register to vote. And when I see and hear Republicans espousing their party's political platforms and agendas, I can't help but ask how much collusion, collaboration and even compromise went into each member's belief systems to accept such platforms in the first place. So when I see the words "non racist Republican" arranged in that matter, I really have to question how these words are used here given what the GOP has given us since the days of Barry Goldwater running for President in 1964.

And for all you "Democrats" out there, don't think you are "Scot-Free" from all of this rancor and scorn, either. Between your machine politics and the picking up of the scraps that the Republicans would not pick up and use themselves, you have basically turned into another group whose political ambitions are based on demogoguery and fear, much like the tools your political opponents used. If the GOP politicians come off as unsympathetic, the "Democratic" politicians take the opposite view and become "bleeding hearts" in the hope that this "sympathy" will pay out on election day. And if the GOP politician comes off as sympathetic to the people's wants and needs, then their "Democratic" counterpart comes off the opposite. And time and again we have seen that here in local politics, dealing from issues like the PG&E pipeline ruptures in San Bruno and in the Sacramento area to even cracking down on non-issues like getting Craigslist to stop hosting ads for sex that could be construed as either "human trafficking" or "prostitution". Guess, these folks are still doing their advertising, not only on Backpage--which is owned by Village Voice/New Times Media, but still on Craigslist--just masked as something else. There's been too much "sweeping issues under the rug" and "kicking the can down the road" and not enough direct action out of the "Democrats", and they accuse the Republicans of doing the same thing.

These folks must think that there is "money" here. There isn't. And besides, robbing a bank these days is more of an inconvenience when you get right down to it. Since depositors' accounts are covered by FDIC, the bank can more than make up for the loss incurred when these folks took to their robbing CitiBank, who in turn probably "robbed" somebody else, especially when they took over Washington Mutual and short-changed those folks that invested in the bank or deposited their assets. As long as nobody got physically hurt, as are as the bank is concerned and the people in there are concerned, we can probably take comfort that this did not turn up worse, like when some guy in Body Armor and Military-Grade weaponry decided that he wanted to take down a BofA Branch out there in the LA Ramparts and even the police could not take him down without much effort. If and when that ever starts happening in Livermore, or any other neighborhood here in the Bay Area, especially out there near Colusa Way and Sutter Street, then start worrying.
