That's 2 armed robberies in Mountain View in the past week, both near the Palo Alto border. And that's not to mention the gang war last weekend, also close to the Palo Alto border.

Mountain View is a real wild and crazy place. Just a matter of time before the crime wave spreads into Palo Alto.

These are probably the same guys who've been mugging people near downtown Palo Alto over the past month. Same type of robbery.

Better get a good description, we dont want the police to stop the wrong "people".

Is this a silicon valley thing? The guy is willing to risk his life for a laptop?

I would have said "sure, take it" and handed it over.

Profiling white people, even with a specific description, is political suicide.

After a number of assaults and robberies on the SF T-line, security cameras were installed. The incidents have gone way down. Maybe Caltrans can install some security cameras at the San Antonio and University Avenue stations.

Don't keep valuable data or secrets on your laptop.
It's a sad truth that polices simply suggest you to cooperate with the criminals instead of crack them down.
