Anyone taking bets that this has to do with EPA thugs?
Nope, wasn't us.
every 2 weeks we have an armed robbery in Palo Alto
the last one was in midtown at an ice cream store where high school students work
this is not the Palo Alto I remember, people willing to murder for 400 dollars
if my kids were still at home I would move to Los Altos Hills
i believe the violent crime emergency crack down in EPA is driving armed gangsters to this side of the freeway
any other explanation ?
you act like police are only looking for ''violent criminals''. look at all those arrests for ''drugs'' sometimes merely cannabis.thats a waste to harass someone for relaxing...
wake up to the fact that the division between haves and have nots is growing and the have nots will start acting more aggressive. these events are magnified when you consider "illegal" residents and the unnecessary hurdles we place in not giving them something as simple as a driver's license.
It will get worse before it gets better. Maybe things will start to turn around after Jan 20, 2009.
In England today they have increased the penalty for cannabis and reclassified it as a class B drug
This is because of the fact that cannabis use causes psychosis and schizophrenia in genetically prone individuals
Cannabis these days is very much stronger than it was 10 yrs ago by orders of magnitude, it is particularly damaging to the developing brain, the brain is not fully developed until 22yrs of age
Now there are TWO Tim's of Crescent Park. I'll concede and be Tim 2 Crescent Park. Just to keep things straight. The last post was by #1.
Another case for surveillance cameras, they are not that expensive
Ever notice that they most all wear the same thing nowdays? Good
cameras would have to be pretty expensive to get a decent "mug" shot.
As far as the pot smoking, seems from the other comment that these guys are under 22 (brains still not developed yet, eh!) Very possible.
Description adds that one is "thin". That suggests the guy is probably malnurshed and hungry, besides wanting to feed his potential drug habit. Other habit is smoking, let's hope he gets lung cancer soon or at least gets caught by someone snitching him off........................
