I read my "San Leandro Times" This week. And there were words on that the crime rate in San Leandro has gone down on 2009 from 2008.
I was like What?! No Way, Is that true?
What do you think?

All of San Leandro is dangerous. Even the more expensive homes (Estudillo, Bay O'Vista and Broadmoor) are so close to Oakland that auto breakins or home invasion robberies are common. Downtown had the same Hollywood Video (less than one mile from Police Dept.) get hit five times in a row. Takeover robberies at family restaurants downtown--the owner of the Englander got shot in the face after HE COMPLIED with the robber by giving him the night's receipts.

Unfortunately, San Leandro's out-of-touch leadership wants to invite more crime by bringing more low-income housing to town and focus on "green" issues instead of crime. In fact, the city is threatening to fire 6 police officers of the understaffed police department or raise sales taxes in San Leandro to 10%. If you can get out of San Leandro--get out--alive--while you can!

Worst thing the city and county ever did was subsidize rents (Section 8) for the ghetto garbage from Oakland and other "hoods". Hey I couldn't care less what color my neighbors are. I do expect those neighbors to act with civility though. That seems to be an alien concept to some people! I think Frank Lynn is right abut getting out of town and I say that as someone who has lived in San Leandro for over 40 years and until a few years ago considered this a great place to live. Now I seldom venture out after dark and have already been mugged once in daylight.

I think what Chad said is true, section 8 is what is destroying San Leandro. All areas are bad, even the manor area, there is too many ghettos folks coming in using section 8. its time to move out.....
