The police are losing ground in the battle against these armed thugs. Time to start letting responsible, law-abiding citizens defend themselves.

ARE YOU LISTENING< SHERRIFF?

4 me November 14, 2012 at 8:18 AM

Hey CCW Now ~I totally agree.

These crimes seem to become a daily event during the holidays.

Why you hang out at an adult store? You willing to take on a guy with a shotgun?

7 Sunfish November 14, 2012 at 8:33 AM

Can you say–panty fettish?

Another tall skinny guy. This time armed.

Sure hope he gets caught soon, bet he’s hungry and tired. If the police offered him a room at the Hilton instead of jail, he might surrender and he could have room service. The food is much better than in jail (I am told).

These people need more understanding and sympathy and forgiveness. Their just misunderstood and need a lot of TLC and monetary support from all of us.

9 Blah Blah blah November 14, 2012 at 8:41 AM

is the suspects name Jesus, Jose, or Jorge?

Why is the boy peking at lingerie?

Time for open carry

It always makes me chuckle when I drive down that street that the Peking Boy is next to the adult store. (Corny, I know)

How much can a store make selling blow up donkeys and plastic people with holes missing for their new found friends to make their own? PHPD does foot security patrol along Lisa Ln (to run off the married men who hook up there) and they go inside. That would of had a whole other ending. Glad the clerk was hurt physically.

14 Jeff November 14, 2012 at 8:58 AM

For what it’s worth, I know the owners of Peking Boy – great people, good food. Hope they weren’t threatened.

Howard, I love the humor you have these days. I’ll add to it….

Why bother getting a job anymore? Heck it’s easier to just rob people, because at least then you know you will eat and not have to pay for it. Jerry Brown will commute your sentence in a few years, and by then hopefully the economy has picked up enough to get back on the food stamp program…..

:-)

ARM YOURSELVES. THIS WILL ONLY GET WORSE. YOUR ONLY OPTION IS SELF DEFENSE!!!!

Again?

16 Mac November 14, 2012 at 9:02 AM

@ Sunfish…no i missed that part of the story :-)

But i think a fashion show would make everyone feel better

17 CCW Now November 14, 2012 at 9:07 AM

@ #6

Well, I am an adult. And I certainly do have a right to hang out at an adult store if i choose. And I would much rather take on a guy with a shotgun than stand there and piss my pants while he shoots me.

18 Perv November 14, 2012 at 9:08 AM

A “hotbed” eh? ;)

19 G non November 14, 2012 at 9:33 AM

****Not hurt physically!

20 dilligafman November 14, 2012 at 9:49 AM

@CCW NOW

Wow. I used to help out delivering food for Peking Boy. Hope no one was hurt and they catch this guy.

23 HA HA November 14, 2012 at 10:33 AM

IT WASNT WORTH IT I ONLY GOT 105 OFF IT HAHAHAH

24 Sunfish November 14, 2012 at 11:16 AM

lol Mac Why else rob a lingerie store. They usually take mostly credit and/or bank cards. I think when he saw the “Peking Boy”, he just couldn’t help himself. :-)

25 Rick November 14, 2012 at 11:23 AM

See I told ya’ll that pornography causes crime !!

26 anonmtz November 14, 2012 at 11:41 AM

From the CCTimes….

“man robs lingerie store – gives police the slip”

27 Starfish November 14, 2012 at 12:07 PM

Pretty hot “hotbed” :–)

28 Scott November 14, 2012 at 12:32 PM

I always get a kick driving by this place. A lingerie store right next to a “Peaking Boy”

29 Nokeem November 14, 2012 at 12:41 PM

Really?!? A SHOTGUN?!! Whoa. Walking into a store on Monument with a shotgun. You are correct, this is way out of control in this area. I am never going shopping around there, or if I have to, to go with bodyguards – DAY or NIGHT. I just won’t go there and I don’t want my Mom to go there either. Kidnapped in Walnut Creek and a shotgun in Concord.

30 mika November 14, 2012 at 12:52 PM

Mullins–surely you jest????

31 Johnson Eupwright November 14, 2012 at 3:09 PM

This criminal also exposed Himself to the Clerk,butt the Judge ruled that this evidence cannot stand up in Court.

32 Anon November 14, 2012 at 4:25 PM

Obama will fix this, he’ll be a citizen so he can collect unemployment.

33 Sweet & Sour Porn November 14, 2012 at 5:56 PM

I always love how this grimy strip mall has a Porn Store next to a place called Peeking Boy….

34 ChampagneKitty November 14, 2012 at 6:35 PM

Some of you are making references to a porn shop. I know there used to be one there for a long time, but it had moved out some years ago. Am I mistaken?

35 Sunstar November 14, 2012 at 7:02 PM

and, ChampagneKitty, just how do you know that?

36 ChampagneKitty November 14, 2012 at 8:08 PM

Because, Sunstar, I seem to remember reading about it in the newspaper a long time ago.

37 ChampagneKitty November 14, 2012 at 8:28 PM

Okay, I found an old article from 2001: http://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Neighbors-fed-up-with-porn-shop-Pleasant-Hill-2909340.php

It says it used to be called Pleasant Hill Adult Books and Not Too Naughty but changed its name to Lingerie, Etc. “Now, it’s called Lingerie, Etc., but the furtive men keep slouching in to rent videos, buy slinky and kinky garments and battery-operated props. Owners changed the name and removed video arcade booths last month, hoping to comply with the 1996 city law restricting adult businesses.”

So it looks like I was mistaken; it’s still a porn shop.

38 Mac November 15, 2012 at 8:20 AM

Didn`t know there were still porn shops out there.
Thought the “Net” drove them all out.
But i guess i`m wrong.

Never been in one, don`t expect to start now

39 G0tgot November 15, 2012 at 2:17 PM

I would love to see a man or woman all dressed up in an outfit catching one of these bad guys lol

40 Mac November 16, 2012 at 8:02 AM

GOtgot…. a women would be good, but a man would not be cool

41 @Champagne Kitty November 16, 2012 at 8:20 AM

So, because it was still a porn shop 11 years ago, it must be one today? Whatever. And if it is, they must be doing ok, because plenty of other businesses have had to close their doors during the last few years due to the crappy economy.

42 ChampagneKitty November 16, 2012 at 9:03 AM

to #41: I really don’t know; I haven’t been there. So do you think that sometime during the last 11 years it stopped being a porn shop and became something else? Whatever.
