I'm amazed with the level of thought these guys put into their heist. Brilliant! And a DELI of all places. Although these guys ARE only 16 years old. We can just chalk it up to a rough start to their ROOKIE seasons. I'm sure someone at Santa Rita will take them in under their wing.

I'm hoping they've learned their lesson and realizes that people aren't afraid to get involved here in the Tri-Valley! Do the Crime, get ready to Pay the Time.

There is another type of robbery that occurs quite often in Pleasanton amongst our kids called "jacking". Punks steal money, ipods, cellphones and whatever else they can to sell to get money. We have a "punk" group of kids that go around and do this. Fortunately the police know who they are and shake them down when warranted. I do wish they could do more but the laws that we enact through the boobs we elect tie their hands. Vineyard Avenue East from First Street halfway up towards Bernal Avenue house some of these "Punks" as well as wantabe street gang groups and again the police are on them. The schools have their hands full too with these "Punks" because of laws that handstring them. I am all for cameras in the schools. That way everyone might behave, kids and teachers. And you would catch those who interfere with the kids who do want to get an education. What happened at the Family Deli on Old Santa Rita will occur more often as we mature as a community. ..it happens. My two cents.

"Dublin scum" ??? What an arrogant attitude! You better crawl out your hole and start reading the papers about your town's scum. And, check out your town's history of bars and hookers while you are at it. It has a lovely history, you hypocrite.

No barb wire fences please. I like the multiplex as well as the additional restaurants.

Dubliners are okay by me!

Sounds like their "hoods" are as lame as ours.

You ever heard the phrase "Don't mess with Texas"? Well don't mess with Pleasanton. Our hookers are are better looking, younger, and less expensive. How dare you..... I'm going to call in an airstrike and take out 3/4 of Dublin scum...

(AP) NEWSFLASH! "Dublin teens" that robbed Pleasanton deli were trained by Pleasanton schools! Subsequent review by Pleasanton School Board calls for a task force to determined where they failed. Issue of apology by school board expected.
