“She described the suspect as a black or Hispanic man of an unknown age’ and yet the Palo Alto police is unable or unwilling to produce a sketch? That’s a poor excuse... Hispanic and African American are now placed on notice. Especially if thier wearing a ‘“do rag’ Web Link [Portion removed.]
Can’t just tell the public that some guy robbed her without description. And she was likely petrified and it was dark so any sketch would be inaccurate anyway. Remember how off-base the Unibomber sketch was? Probably not, you are probably too young.
Palo Alto Online is biased towards liberal postings but that’s not good enough for some. So typical. It’s always a no-win with you guys.
Does anyone know where we can find the crime stats for Palo Alto? Do they break such things down by race, gender and ethnicity -- or whether the perpetrators are residents of the city or come from outside of the community (and where)?
Nayeli, Palo Alto police website on crime stats. We’ll let your own fingers do the exploring rather that point out the way... Race and gender. City council put the brakes on that one... Claiming budgetary constraints. But in reality, it was a cover-up to hide disproportionate profiling data of minorities. You read about that in the police auditor reports....found online as well...
Paly Resident O yes Ted... read his entire manifesto.... brilliant manthematician. Police sketch? Now if this was some politician you would bet your bottom dollar the police would provide a sketch.... There just lazy.
Curious. Are people just wandering around downtown waiting for opportune moments to rob someone? Armed, no less.
100x more people wandering around downtown looking to bust into parked cars.
