Walmart needs to teach some self-defense skills to their loss prevention employees. Gas masks for the pepper spray, nunchucks for the punches, and Air Jordan's to chase them down if they get past all that!

Fight this AM - Renwick and Trainor- Laguna West

January 14, 2015 10:59:39 AM PST

I'm wondering if anyone else witnessed the fight early this morning at the park located on Renwick at Trainor.

I was out walking my dog at about 6:10am or so.

There was a mob of about 15 or so trashy black people on Trainor; half were on one side of the street and half were on the other side of the street.

The disagreement seemed to be between females as they were the ones doing all of the yelling ...couldn't tell what they were yelling about because there were so many of them screaming over each other. There were males in attendance as well, but they only seemed to be observing. My big dog started getting super anxious and riled up so we bolted the other direction.

I called the police but the group disbanded before they arrived.

I use this street often to access the the neighborhood behind the park and have noticed an increase in shady characters loitering on that particular block...on both sids of the park, actually.

There has been increased loitering on Trainor and increased loitering on Sipler. The neighborhood is designed in such a way that one side of the street is the park and the other side of the street is backyard residential fences. There are no houses houses facing these "access" streets. EGPD had some shady looking dude pulled over the other evening after work and were searching his car.

It's an easy and convenient spot for dirtbags who are up to no good to park and plot. Just keep your eyes out, folks. The garbage is alive and well in Laguna West.
