New “dine and dash” in Santa Ana – eat, then rob the place!

During the recent City Council campaign here in Santa Ana, our Mayor, Miguel Pulido, and his Team of henchmen kept sending out mailers telling voters that Santa Ana is one of the “safest cities in Orange County.”  Well, now we have a new meaning for “dine and dash,” here in this allegedly safe town.

A fellow robbed a local restaurant – but first he sat down and ate their food!  The “robber walked into the restaurant, ordered food and ate it. Once he finished eating, he walked up to the resister as if he was going to pay, but instead pointed a handgun at the cashier and demanded money from the register,” according to the O.C. Register.

Didn’t we see this in the movie “Pulp Fiction?”  And hasn’t this in fact been happening with great frequency in Oakland?  Once again Santa Ana is starting to look a lot like that troubled Bay Area city.

Of course the police think the guy was a gang member.  Where did those sweeps go, now that the election is over?  Hmmm….

UPDATE:

In related news, “20-year-old Santa Ana man was shot to death early this morning in what police are calling a gang-related shooting,” according to the O.C. Register.  Yep.  Santa Ana is one of Orange County’s safety cities.  Sure.  And Mayor Pulido is an honest man.  Not!
