I am all for freedom of speech and I think that there SHOULD be a protest about what Johnson said.

That being said, I live on Univ between Middlefield and 101. If any of the protesters decide to cause headaches or decide to damage property, there is going to be problems, make book on that.

I call for ANYONE who sustains damage to person or property from this 'March' to sue the organizers, starting with Dr. Fay Knox, the Mayor and City of EPA, AND the City of Palo Alto for not backing the police Chief and getting on with the business of Palo Alto.

I am wondering how much the CC will get paid for this year bonus. They'll congradulate each other for passing measurea A&N at the year end. Looks like they are going to have tons of $$$ leftover for the celerbration. When comes to crime and safety, look at what they do!!! Yes nothing supportive.

I have Several Questions to Mayor, City Council and City Manager, and Citizens of Palo Alto.
1. Do you believe your chief is using the best policing to solve crimes in your community?
2. True or false: The city council, city manager and citizens of Palo Alto support and indorse the chief's directive to the police department to use racial profiling.
3. Will you allow the inflammatory actions and comments by the current chief of police to stand without repudiation, discipline or termination?
4. Are you opposed to using good policing to catch bad guys?
5. Do you agree that racial profiling is a violation of rights?
6 Will you visit the following wed site for more information:

anyone who acts up should be considered a provocateur,and not part of the ''march''.this is the time to speak of justice,not a prejudicial fantasies of provocateurs.if nothing ios done ,there will simply be more peaceful activities.we are better than that.only provokers with jingoistic fantasies are defacing this message board.btw,marchers should know,that papd DOES listen to peoples conversations at marches.be careful what you say.it could be misconstrued.at the very least ,they are watching? listening to you

Prop 8 is the will of the people in California.
But I see your point in that 75% of the Black population voted for Prop 8.

Apparently the gay activists feel more comfortable hurling vile,bigoted attacks at Christians, rather than storming East LA or East PA


Why is that do you think?
