Well Mark Zuckerberg, aren't you glad you moved your company from snobby Palo Alto to earthy Menlo Park?

Glad to hear he is ok! Tragedies can happen in any city, it does not matter if it's on the East or West!

a nissan, yes, but why do menlo cops harass cyclist especially non whites? a large amount of criminals drive cars. why did they not find boston suspects at marathon but they manage to search your lunch pail twice a month? racism thats what. get a lexus andf be a criminal you wont get stopped.

In solidarity with nissan & So true; I have been a resident of EPA for 5yrs now; I have had just two interactions with Menlo & EPA Police; in both cases I was treated like a suspect rather than a law abiding citizen.

Local Police should try to do some Public Relations; they may find that people are more cooperative.

Little, Big Men with a shooter in hand, take the shooter away and they are probably as yellow as mustard! Hopefully the hoods shall be caught and dealt with accordingly.

look at all the ITGs in this thread. The police should abandon EPA and the east side of Menlo and let these big mouths fend for themselves
