Don't road rage against those bicyclists. You never know if they are packing.

Greg K:

It is possible that the bicyclist was a hit man; they often use bikes. I also want to express my condolences go to the family and to the victim.

As a mother of a son who was murdered in E.Palo Alto, I feel the pain. For someone to take our son(s)whom we gave birth to, away from us, causes great-pain. I had the feeling that my son should out-live me! Think of us mothers...you are not only killing our sons, you are also killing us mothers, your mother, his mother, mothers! With time the pain eases up, but it never goes away. May God bless the whole wide world and forgive us of our sins, in Jesus name, Amen!
Prayer helps. Have faith /with works.

This was a senseless act committed by cowards. It must be solved. No one deserves to die in this manner, for any reason. He was born and raised East Palo Alto, everyone knew him as a kind and generous person. He had turned his life around in the last 2 years. I am just deeply saddened.

I grew up with Mike and graduated from high school with him. My younger brother was killed in EPA 18 years ago!

Does it ever stop?
