Obviously in need of mental help. I hope he gets the right kind. Nothing in the story about where he lives, what he does, who his parents are.

If this had happened in San Jose, he would have. Even shot dead, no doubt. His family is very lucky to live in Palo Alto. [Portion removed.]

Sad that this has tainted his life going forward. He can't take it back and he will have to endure the ridicule from this event for a very long time.
