Not all of the burglars were from the area. I kept a close watch on these incidents and I noticed that a large number of them were from the South Bay; San Jose, Santa Clara.
However, I wonder if investments by Palo Altans towards community development in East Palo Alto might ehlp with the problem.
Or, would they prefer to just keep dealing with it and lock up eveyone that they catch; but of course they have to catch them first.

Fascinating. First: "I noticed that a large number of them were from the South Bay; San Jose, Santa Clara."
Then "I wonder if investments... towards community development in East Palo Alto might ehlp with the problem."
If the crooks are from "the South Bay; San Jose, Santa Clara", why disparage EPA?
Second: Where are the hard numbers? Wouldn't this article have benefited by a month by month list of total crimes, assuming those stats are available on the 'police blotter'? It's reported as mere anecdotes.

The link to the crime by google map Web Link is interesting, but a monthly breakdown of incidents would serve a good purpose as well.

Anyone besides me notice the burglaries popped up over the summer and dropped off when school started?? (Except for the unempolyed recent grads.)
