Reference Black in Palo Alto. Two Blacks on ONE bike. Now every police officer in the world knows that is a temporary situation, that a bike theft will soon remedy. That is why those two black underage kids out late at night (after 11 pm)in wealthy Palo Alto were stopped. To prevent a crime. Thank you Palo Alto Police, and get real Frank.

The problem with rt 88 is that it is probably a bus 40'+ in length with a capacity of maybe 50 passengers, but except for the school students has only 1 to 3 people on it the rest of the day. It belches black diesel smoke and consumes hugh amounts of fuel and produces huge amounts of C0 2 and other toxic materials.

After all of the new housing is built, most will be years away, the reevaluate its value.

A bus runs down Middlefield which is only a few blocks away from Louis Rd. Walk to Louis Rd.

Re: Black in Palo Alto

It's Friday night, about 11 pm, and I just saw a movie alone at the Aqaurius like the massive tool that I am. As I drive home I see an evil cop stop two people, clearly with the intent of harassing them based purely on the color of their skin.

I'm sure there's "some law" that says two people can't ride on the same bike. But then again I'm sure there's "some law" that makes running a red light, robbery, and murder a violation also in our society. Clearly the cops are absurd to be enforcing laws the legislature has enacted.

Having nothing better to do then poke my nose into other people's business, and wanting to feel I really made a difference before returning to my multi-million dollar mansion to spend the night, I decide to pull over.

Like a double "o" agent, I creep up on the cop, just close enough to hear laughter and the bantor of a friendly conversation. Clearly though the cop is using mind tricks, he can not possibly have good intentions.

"Have you ever been arrested?" "Do you have any weapons?" What obscene questions for a police officer to be asking someone. I am highly offended.
