Well Mark Zuckerberg, aren't you glad you moved your company from snobby Palo Alto to earthy Menlo Park?

In solidarity with nissan & So true; I have been a resident of EPA for 5yrs now; I have had just two interactions with Menlo & EPA Police; in both cases I was treated like a suspect rather than a law abiding citizen.

Local Police should try to do some Public Relations; they may find that people are more cooperative.

Little, Big Men with a shooter in hand, take the shooter away and they are probably as yellow as mustard! Hopefully the hoods shall be caught and dealt with accordingly.

look at all the ITGs in this thread. The police should abandon EPA and the east side of Menlo and let these big mouths fend for themselves
