Over the past year, there seems to be an influx of violence near downtown Walnut Creek. It's a great city that we often visit for late dinners on the weekends but I'm hesitant to do so as there are fights and stabbings every month. A very unfortunate situation for such a family oriented upscale area.

I agree with John. The problems seem to be escalating in downtown Walnut Creek. Mostly by people from other areas. Business owners will start losing revenue if this trend continues, if they aren't already. Such a shame!

This problem will self-correct itself if WC police start providing "special attention" to the club in question. I'm not talking about harassment - just more presence, and more attention given to drunk drivers leaving the area, etc.

I recall hearing on the news some months ago that it took all of WC police resources to quell disruptions at two clubs when fights erupted simultaneously. Not acceptable. Can clubs be made responsible for reimbursing the city, or can additional private security be required as a condition of the license to operate?
