you always say if we had been there...when is our police department going to start doing their jobs. Are you waiting until our youth kill eachother so you have less to deal with? I mean, 30 seconds in east palo alto is nothing, considering its so small. If there were 30 police officers in the area, why didnt one of them spot him, why wasnt one police officer close enough to be there 30 seconds earlier. I think its time our police department shares with us what theyve been up to when crimes happen and they arrive 30 seconds too late.
