Bill Warrior is a gem! A true Palo Alto historian, and a living local hero. We are lucky to have him in our town!

From the feral chows living in the creek, to saving strays from being hit, to helping wildlife, Officer Warrior is a treasure. He's also thoughtful, intelligent, educated, kind-hearted and hard-working. I see him all over Palo Alto working, and the city is very lucky to have him. Jeneatte Washington is another wonderful officer - kind, more than competent, innovative, intelligent. Palo Alto has greatly benefitted from these two and their skillsets!

Oh please -- the "comics" are immature and silly. I honestly don't see how you get "whimsical and witty" out of it. [Portion removed by Palo Alto Online staff.]

John and Judy, why the caustic comments? Here's a guy who obviously has worked hard; has admitted he made mistakes and worked to correct them; loves his job; and tries to make something positive out of it while exercising some creativity.

Sounds to me like we need more people like Officer Warrior (great name)and fewer like you.
