<Latu was a freshman at Menlo-Atherton High School in 1991, just before a year that everyone in East Palo Alto would sooner forget. There were 42 homicides in East Palo Alto in 1992, mostly drug dealers killing each other.>

I hope the current violent crime emergency in EPA is not a sign of a return to 1990.

Anyway this young womans efforts are courageous and I congratulate her

Well done!
