Times are getting harder.....people are getting desperate, especially those who are poor, who now are even poorer than poor! We all have to "watch our backs" and be especially aware so not to get hurt. And instead of being so uptight, try to help the world by giving a little of yourself by possibly even cracking a little smile at someone in the grocery store line or to the lady behind the desk who is helping you out...(etc.) We all have problems but the world can be a better place if some of us realize that just the smallest thing such as a smile or nod can make a great difference on the receiving side....and spread the love. It helps.

This was a nasty, dangerous nightmare which inconvenienced thousands of people.

Why the chase? Because they were armed robbers? Never sure what's the criteria that cops use to chase suspects vs not chase.

I hope they find these thugs and that they go away for a long, long time.

Bad economic times always means an increase in property crimes and bank robberies. It's a good reminder to be more careful, especially as the holidays approach.

Nice to know these armed criminals are hiding out nearby.

Times are hard and I can't get a job that pay enough to makes end's meet. I'm a single 26 year old african american female with NO children. I'm sure this is the reasoning for those folks robbing the store. I'm not saying it was right.

No one was killed why did San Jose PD waste tax money on a liquor store robbery. I could understand if i was an bank or something of that nature.

Just like the person noted in the first comment, put a smile on your face when you see someone say thank you to your food -servers, janitors, housekeepers, babysitters and gardners.

People are struggling in East Palo Alto!

The rich is getting richer and the poor poorer. So the poor will rob to survive. Rich people rob on international/white collar crime level. Nobody's chasing AIG down !!!!

Me and my children live in EPA, have no records or history of drug use, worked all my life-pink people are interviewing me and my children and telling us we don't have enough experience or too much (oldest prejudice line in the book). You dingy racists need to remember that those houses you live in and cars you drive (sometimes passed down by mommy and daddy) were made possible because of the young peoples ancestors that built this country on their backs for free. Then came Jim Crow, you and your profited and still do whatever you can to keep it (sorry not enough experience). You sound scared and naive, you should be-because you're the reason why it's happening!
