Palo Alto, the tech center of the known universe and they can't even install cameras sharp enough to read a license plate to keep us safe from creeps like this? Amazing.

No kidding George Kaplan. Yet they justify spending millions of dollars to install high tech cameras at the train tracks which are completely useless. Gross misconduct of public funds by our city council if you ask me...

Don't get me started on the buffoonery of our city council and the railroad cameras. They justified the spending of $1.5m to install and $350k annually of OUR tax dollars to maintain a completely useless system that won't save one life, while defunding community mental health efforts (the actual source of the issue) while never consulting actual railroad industry experts of the suicide issue. Time to flush the toilet.

Come on. The article doesn't say this is from a city surveillance system. It looks like it came from a private home security camera that was probably aimed at the front door to catch Amazon package thieves. The car just happened to be in the frame.

Nice car for a suspect. Shows good taste and affordability means.
