Thanks PD for getting this guy off the streets. A meth-ed out crazy with a knife and a history of trying to use it. A dangerous man is off the streets for now. Your turn D.A.

Wonder how long it will take for him to be back on the street again?

Such an outstanding citizen, the Judge will probably release him OR.

Is it not about time the knife carriers were given an amnesty in order that they surrender their weapons. Knife carrying should be illegal, and anyone caught with the same should receive ten years in the slammer or as in this persons case ten years and then deported.

Great job by the police. Not so great job with the comments here.

Video cameras are really useful ... why don't we have them in problem areas of Palo Alto ... do we not want to admit there are problem areas of Palo Alto, or are there too many?

At least Yi finally got a better picture published! Hopefully he will look much older when he gets out of jail. ;-)

Don't miss out on the discussion!
