Congratulations and many thanks to our Palo Alto Police! I would much rather support funding for them than for the smash and grab, homeless, etc.

Describing the race of the suspects is just going to lead to racism against Black Stanford students and residents who are shopping without delivering any benefit, since "black and wearing a mask" is not a sufficient description to aid anyone in finding the accused. I would recomment PA online delete the racial descriptions which will only lead to profiling at the mall during this holiday season. PAPD doesn't need any help being racist and over the top.

Oh, please the description of the thugs is going to affect students at Stanford. Good grief.
