Cops are just trying to link everything to Kyle and Frank because they are using them as scapegoats. ANYONE could have done the previous burglaries, just because they are blaming Kyle and Frank for one school burglary doesn't prove anything. PAPD is lazy and they stereotype African Americans. Kyle my look white but he is half black and the papd knows that because they beat his dad for no reason. anyways, maybe the problem is that schools are too easy to break into, and shouldnt make it so easy for their computers/laptops to be stolen.

If laptops are being taken from so many schools up and down the Peninsula, how come schools aren't able to secure them? For starters, secure all laptops in safes with combination locks.

Eight burglaries from Palo Alto Schools involving laptops tells me the School Board isn't demanding that the Staff find a way to secure their computers.
