  1. Y’all have tons of nasty things to say about children evading BART fares but nothing about this sad sack of excrement from Danville? Crazy.

    • What is wrong with you? A lot of these “children” you mention are young adults who are out preying on people. Committing felonies.

      • Really Daniel?? They were 13-14 years old and there were no felonies being committed. If they were white you would call them “babies.” So strange that people in this community have more hatred for black teenagers being teenagers than literal pedophiles. It’s sick.
