Palo Alto is getting scary
270 lbs and he needed a bat? Now that's a real man for ya!
I am touched by the actions of this 17 year old, sticking up out of respect for his mother. To his parents - job well done.
I hope they catch these losers. Shame on them for their disrespect & throw the book at them for their assault on the teen. Treating someone in public they eat they did the mother, then the assault, in daylight at a place of business is deplorable & frightening. My best wishes to this mother & her son.
This is the Main Palo Alto Post Office - somewhere where most of us have to go at some point or another. I don't know what that was not referenced, I doubt most Palo Altans would know where this is otherwise.
Is this officially East Palo Alto?
I'd like to make a calm comment on the perpetrators here but anything I say would be deleted by the editors no matter how on-point it was. Maybe I can point out a possible father-sin or familial relationship and some negative socialization going on that is not going to help our society to be the melting pot we like to think it is.
My best wishes of health and all to the son, and mother.
Bru - (one registered user to the other) - I do not understand. Why do you think you have to be very careful here in this thread, stating that any comment will be deleted? I actually do not understand why comments are limited to registered users.
What a brave teenager! I hope he will okay, and the violent creeps both found, arrested, and thrown in the clink.
Village Fool, I think Bru may have meant that any comments construed as politically incorrect are removed, but I may be wrong. I firmly believe we should be able to write anything, excluding obscenities, as I'd love to know what people here are REALLY thinking on the issues, no matter how outré.
Congratulations to a young man who has a bigger "pair" than most grown men !
Don't miss out on the discussion!
