Supposedly crime rates are down in Pal Alto but it sure doesn't feel like it. Maybe the statistics have just been "reclassified" to make them look better like the unemployment rate or number of illegal aliens crossing the border.

With a rash of robberies and car break ins at night, criminals are using our city as their own personal ATM machine. Let's hope this trend is broken before someone gets killed.
