    Its just a publicity stunt using the news media to further their more of the same do nothing approach. Your best bet is to sell and move. If you cant do that soon you must batten down the hatches along with installing security cameras, gratings for windows / doors and arming yourself heavily. Those leaders I spit on!

    Lack of discipline and leadership has gotten Fairfield to this point. From the top of city hall to the bottom of the ghettos in the flatz there are no repercussions. The problem here is we literally don't hold people accountable for their actions. Criminals, politicos and Leo's pretty much do what they want in this town. Nobody on our council has any idea of how to fix what's happening in our lower development areas because they have never lived in our lower development areas. The whole city management team needs to be kicked to the curb.

    One of the biggest problems here, being from another state is that there is way too much time on some people's hands! As long as California caters to people who sit on their butt and feed off of the system, these problems will continue and only get worse! I am not saying to take away all state assistance because some is needed & some people actually use it to get back on their feet during rough times. But, others just abuse it, feel as if they are entitled to it & are always looking for handouts. Thus, adding to the ignorance & the urge to run around town acting a fool. The state I am from banished welfare years ago, putting people into education and certification programs getting them a job and off of the system. Taxes are low and they stay low because they do not take care of everyone & all of their babies. Get off your butt, get a job or a hobby at least that does not involve drugs, alcohol or guns. It is ridiculous what I have seen in this city the last 7 years, it has gone down hill. California is a beautiful state but many of the people do not reflect that nor do they appreciate how many opportunities are actually available here. I hope the city and council take things serious and get to work! If they do not, then we know they are just as careless as the people causing all of these crimes & murder!!!!

    Of course its cancelled! City Hall doesn't to hear what we have to say! Its always been like this.in Fairfield. I left this town for 20 years because I of things like this.In those 20 years, i dont see improvement in crime at all. When will they see that what ever they are doing isn't good enough! How many more children are going to get shot before the powers that be do something about this I live behind Walmart and I had 2 children playing in the back yard when the shooting happend right on the other side of the wall. Very unacceptable!!! But like i said, its aslways been like this in Fairfield. I thought after 20 years maybe things would be different... Guess not! They will probably cancel this meeting a couple more times too. Mark my words, they dont want to hear about all this!!!.

    Live over there too except and then a few nights after the police shootings there were 4 juveniles shot and responders brought in for crowd control for a bunch of teenagers! Where are the parents of these kids and why are 13-14 yr olds at a party in the middle of the night!? Unreal!!!!! I am glad your children are ok after that incident. It is just ridiculous

    They want to wait for a few verdicts. If these hooligans continue to be found not guilty, we know where the problem lies.

    Aomeone is making money renting these hell holes. Until their interests are placed below those of the everyday Fairfield citizen, this will go on and on and on. We're the cheapest landing place after you're evicted from Oakland and if we don't have empty low cost units, we'll build a few thousand more. Benicia doesn't, Vacaville doesn't, Dixon doesn't but we do - and you wonder why they come???
