Crazy yes, 'like a fox' I am the ex wife and he is was not crazy. Oh yes, he could surely put it on as if he were to get out of molestimg his own children and God knows who else. He is a 'MASTER MANIPULATOR'. He broke my face three times and I had to have my face replaced once. He is a wife-beater and never was nuts, just out for sex whereever he could get it. Big secret in family was he was molested by his own mother Patricia and this was verified by James' great grandmother and grandmother to me. Pat was molested by her dad and the circle goes on. That is why her dad comitted suicide. Nuts----no way. Just smart enough to ACT crazy when in trouble. He even had sex with males amd fruit---yes---fruit. Hois ex girlfriend R. told me even before I mentioned it to her. I graduated Law Enforcement after he was kicked out of our home by the courts and I am telling the truth.

Sounds like the perfect Palo Alto resident. It is a matter of Palo Alto pride?

You had your next/new City manager under your nose and let him get away.
You can be promoted to Fire Captain from a jail cell. Why not run the City from one?
