Crime is a way of life for EPA. Yes, the bad apples spoil it for everyone else. Sadly, there are so many bad apples in EPA that it is uncontrollable.

Why is Palo Alto Online a source for EPA news? I look at this website to read about PA news and end up finding that 50% of the articles are about EPA crime. Maybe EPA can start their own website called EPA Online.

Actually I believe that a lot of the police officers from EPA don't really care about the people there! And this boys are not criminals and some people just speak wit out knowing anything and I believe that maybe insted of labeling people we should stop and think about how not every one comes from a good area and that this boys are not the crimnals they are labeld as! Thank you.....
