    And so the assaults by juveniles continue. When will this be news? The paper spends all its time reporting on useless political garbage and infighting and the never-ending non-development of the former base. The citizens of Alameda deserve to know what is going on here and what the Alameda police, are doing, if anything, to stem this constant tide of violence. It seems as if the police are only spending their time determining if the “incidents are related.” There are numerous attacks per week going on here.

    A public warning needs to be issued to Alamedans who live in the area of these assaults. We hear about rabid bats but not rabid teens. Someone is going to end up getting killed, just as the recent victim in Oakland did after he was “punched in the head” by thugs. I have changed my route to walk only on the more populated streets, such as Central, but it doesn’t matter because these kids are now assaulting people on Central Ave in full view of everyone driving by. The police and local reporters need to step up to the plate and take on this politically incorrect issue , before someone does get seriously hurt of murdered.
