I was across the street from the fight when it happened. Jeremy punched the elderly man in the face hard, knocking him to the ground. While the man was laying face up and motionless on the ground, Jeremy stood over him, pulled his arm all the way back, and punched straight down on to his head, delivered like a killing blow. He then kicked him a couple times, and just casually walked off.

This all happened within a few seconds, too fast for anyone to stop it.

The old man was in really bad shape. His face was swollen and bleeding, and the back of his head was all mangled. A thick pool of blood formed under him.

Fairfax is starting to go to hell. In the last couple months, I've been burglarized and witnessed this horrible beating. Living in the Canal district of San Rafael was never even this bad. Because it used to be such a safe place, the locals are in denial. Until we wake up and confront what's going on, this problem is going to keep festering until we've passed the point of no return.

It seems that a lot of things have been happening burglaries, car thefts.....I think the kid who led the police threw town, also got caught stealing tools (WTF does he need tools for)......These are stupid Marin kids, who are being raised by parents who don't instill values. This kid I am talking about is a Sleepy Hollow kid......so in my estimation his parents should have some $ and some education and therefore some intelligence.....yet their child is a total F UP. You can't just live your life, making money, going golfing and to PTA meetings and think your kids are just going to learn values/ideals/morals on their own.....parents need to TEACH that. From what I see in Marin their is a huge generation of parents (my age 30-40s) who are so caught up in their little material world they aren't teaching their children anything, except to be little materialistic consumers like themselves. I think what scares me is that you see these parents running around town, blowing stop signs in their Prius, not saying please and thankyou when they order from their waitress, the most important thing in their lives is to keep up with the Joneses and it's not really that hard to draw the line to ill-behaved, bratty entitled children. So unless the parents get a serious wake up call, these punks are going to keep being churned out into society.
Also- CAIT, I hope next time someone like this comes into town , that you and your fellow parkade rats, protect your community and the people in your community b/c if you don't have that you have nothing, so I hope this was a big lesson for all your friends that hang out at the parkade. If you don't want a poor reputation then try and do something about it, prove people otherwise.

Sitting here. My first cup of Peet's. And wondering: What kind of dirt bag beats up an 89 year old? He must've been real tough in school. I would LOVE the punk who beat him to come across me. I really would.

This loser was from Tahoe City, probably in Fairfax picking up his drug supply. All the whitewash in the news about Fairfax doesn't change the fact that it is a haven for worthless losers. I feel sorry for the nice people who do live there. They need to get beyond "we are so environmentally friendly" etc. California breeds a lot of really violent people, Fairfax is not exempt.

And I certainly hope you stepped up and made a report to the Fairfax P.D.

That Officer is a liar. That kid beat the crap outta that guy for no reason there wasn't even an exchange of words. I work across the street from the parkade and those kids are a mess and something NEEDS to happen with that place.

I called the cops on him last week because he wouldn't leave me alone, saying he was a pro snowboarder from Tahoe city and all this nonsense.

Sgt. Moron, and Callahan said that they were busy playing twister when I called.

If I saw this incident, we would have defended the old man and dropped dirt off the alamere falls.

look how the cops turned the story around on the old man. Saying he was raising his fists! Probablly reported by the vagrant crew that lives in the parking lot.

fizax pigs always want to blame the victim, cause the town manager instructs them to hide the problem. Fact.

You are a coward Mr. Rock. Callahan and Moron Cowards.

Fairfax pigs are worthless.

build a skate park, open a rec center, take away pay from worthless rent-a-cops!

PEace out fools!

The Fairfax police treat tax paying law abiding citizens like criminals.
I dont like them and they are not serving the community.
