Just an observation. The news reports unsolved break-ins and the blogs are filled with criticism about the PAPD not doing their job, not caring, being inept, or whatever. THis past week there have been several news reports of the PAPD making arrests in connection with everything from the Lacy murder case and people breaking into cars. What do we see, but one comment on this thread.

Let me add to it and thank the police department for doing a difficult job, one that most of us, especially the critics, would neither be capable of or willing to do themselves. As for those critics, your silence following the successful work just further reveals you as petty, sniping, and cowardly.

Actually, the reason those critical threads have such a long shelf-life is that so many people rushed to defend the police. A controversial topic is always longer than a one-sided discussion. I suspect that the whiners and complainers are a vocal minority, and that the majority of Palo Altans appreciate and respect the PAPD. If you're looking for a long thread of attaboys, it's probably not going to happen unless someone first stirs the pot. Do any Children's Theatre defenders want to do the honours?

Hey maybe if the killer steals a radio and gets caught on tape, you might catch him? Maybe not.

PAPD will get the shooter. Just give them time. 1 down, 1 to go.
