be nice to your fellow persons. it's a nasty country you live at. laws for damn near everything. none of the individual freedoms that are touted by the powers that be. be yourself, don't add to the human drama. be satisfied with only yourself. no need to do anything on earth. too much has been done. just eat sleep and go on with it.

> The second suspect was described as a black male in his mid-20s, about 6 feet 1 inch tall and about 200 points.

Proofreaders? Probably should read 200 pounds?

Very sorry to hear that again this has happened to another Palo Altan just going about their life minding their own business. We are reading way too much about this these days.

> Even though he cooperated and handed over his property, the man with the knife punched him in the face and slashed him in the forearm with the knife.

This is new and really concerning. All the previous cases like this I've read about there was no real violence. That is starting to change, why? Is there something missing from this story or are these thugs just getting meaner and more violent?

Guess you can not venture too far from home now unless you have a body guard with you.

Shame what this world is turning out to be!

I'm not easily shocked anymore, but a violent armed robbery in front of a child, injuring their parent in a public place?
