This is a story about 3 men, all locals from different parts of the county, that were at a known gay pick spot at 10:30 on a Friday night that got robbed. Was it wrong that they got robbed? Yes, of course it was. However wtf were they doing there in the first place. Can anyone really tell me that they were there to use the restroom or for the view?

You have no IDEA what you are talking about. Just because a gay person has been there before doesn't mean it's a cruising spot, nor does it mean it's dangerous because of that. YOU ARE WRONG. Sounds like you have probably hung out there looking for your own action, got some, and then felt guilty and now you have to vilify the area and gays. Get a life
Sorry buddy but this place is exactly what they say it is. Since the 70s police have broken up multiple gay sexual encounters there. Not saying it is wrong but it is a known spot for sexual hookups and prostitution. Why would these local guys be at a spot like that?

Yes, it is a male prostitution spot for sure, not necessarily gay men only. This has been common activity for as long as I can remember. There are several around. On 280 overlook there is one with never less than 3 male prostitutes hanging out around the men's room. I'm not surprised they were robbed knowing there is money being exchanged there. I wouldn't doubt if drugs are being sold too since truck drivers use it. Different strokes for different folks I guess!

I'm surprised there isn't one of those gay Rainbow flags flying at the entrance. We have panhandling meters about to be installed Downtown.... in our Sanctuary City, Why Not???

This is a known hang out for gay men seeking a thrill a minute. I would bet anything the three men involved were all gay, and may not have know each other prior to meeting that evening. You'll notice they did not give their names.
Families with kids, parents..., never stop at this place even during the day. The police know all about it but can do nothing due to the Politcally Correct people. There is a similar area off of Hwy 1 near 4 mile or the County Line according to another officer.
Victims names are protected by law and are not supposed to be published. I don't understand your point of the men being gay. They were robbed and one was hit with the butt of the gun. Gay or not, this does not deminish the crime.

The first post did not write that it was justified, he/she just pointed out a known fact. Heck, it may be why the robber targeted the place. Most gay men meeting at this public place for gay sex with strangers would likely not even report a robbery. I'll bet this has happened before.
This is why the first post's info is relevant. Also, the scream, I believe it is against the law to have sex in a public place and is know as lewd behavior. Are you suggesting that this is acceptable in your society?
As a former person who used to patrol many county parking areas to close gates. I found more heterosexual couples having sex in cars than I encountered same sex couples. The county is aware of vista point and F beach on the north coast and they do patrol the areas frequently.

When a family member came to visit I decided to stop @ the 280S vista point on way back from Half Moon Bay. Ok I had heard this activity occurred but aeriously didn't expect it to b so blatant in broad daylight! I had my daughters n their friend and we wanted to get pictures of the view. Um stumbled upon someone who had to zip up quickly on the path in the high grass. Thankfully I was blocking view from kids and guy pulled out cell to pretend he was taking pictures. We quickly went to leave and saw another apparent prostitute waiting for a customer. I mean seriously it was freezing n he had his six pack on display just hanging out waiting.

Come on guys (yes guys cuz about 6 men there) do ur dirt in private for goodness sake! Some of us really would like to see the view of landscape in these places!
