Great job, Danville teens, and Danville PD, in catching this criminal! Danville appears to be one of the last sane towns in the Bay Area where victims of crime and the police who risk their lives every day to protect strangers are valued and praised, rather than criminals.

It is sickening to read that the new DA of San Francisco will not enforce what he calls "quality of life crimes", such as public urination, prostitution, and other criminal activities, but rather his focus is attacking the police and treating them as the enemy.

Our criminal justice system depends on checks and balances, where the DA seeks to speak for the people who want to protect society and victims of crime, and the Public Defender seeks to protect the rights of criminals. This checks and balances is disappearing in the Bay Area, as the new DA in San Francisco was a life long Public Defender, proud socialist who studied with Hugo Chavez in Venezuela, and who claims his parents were "political prisoners" when in reality they belonged to an underground militant group and they drove the get away car that robbed a Brinks truck and killed two police officers in the process. Killing police officers in CA who tried to stop a bank robbery does not make you a "political prisoner", it makes you a cop killer, and in many states you would get the death penalty. Just when you think San Francisco could not get any worse, with drug dealers, junkies, public urination, record number of car burglaries, and rampant chaos that takes the rights away from law abiding citizens, they reach a new low, with their Socialist DA.

If this was San Francisco, they would attack the police for arresting this "poor guy" who simply wanted to borrow a bike and see if any car doors were unlocked as he really needs to find some things belonging to others to sell for food. The rights of the teen who owned the bike, the rights of the people who owned the cars that he tried to break into, would not matter, as they are "those damn 1 percenters" who don't matter. Of course, as noted in this story, this great guy is a convicted sex offender, on probation, so with this arrest and probation violation he will be going away and will no longer prey on our community. If the police did not do their job, if the teens did not act like responsible citizens, he would be on the streets, stealing, and likely committing more sex offenses. Crime is crime, and if you violate the laws, there are consequences, and thank you Danville PD and Danville citizens for understanding this.

Well, well, well...

Listen up, Dan and Jeniffer of Danville!

Bike thief, Peter Edward Voss, was booked into the Martinez Detention Facility for possession of a stolen bicycle, tampering with vehicles and for probation violation. Voss has been known to police officers in the San Ramon Valley; in 2016 he was arrested by the San Ramon Police Department on suspicion of sexually assaulting a ride-share driver.

Hey Dan and Jeniffer, see what I was talking about? One thing leads to another... in other words, Voss had warrants out for his arrest - which Danville PD became aware of once they nailed the idiot for bike theft.

Lock him up and keep him locked up. Don't insult the kids by setting him free. Repeat offenders don't deserve another chance.
