Good grief, this is news? Can the Weekly really not find any good news to report from East Palo Alto?

SP - I thought the same thing. Patch has reported on it & The Merc. Slow news day + chief of EPA PD chasing publicity as usual. The real story, IMO: Who owns those scummy apts where the guy lived and why has it always had more thugs than a flophouse has bedbugs???

It might have been news worthy if it stated large amounts of drugs. No amount given. And the article states the address is 1800 block of East Palo Alto like that's a street? Knowing it's the LIght Tree Apts, that is East Bayshore.

How about the PAPD going after, and trying to catch/stop the people who are breaking into PA residences - banging in doors, and going through animal door entries? Get some real crime resolved - Please!

we all know e.p.a/menlo park is a small city were big things take place! police say its the new generation upbring that have are city in a up roar of killing and violence! In reality this been going on since the OG's> (new generation parents) were in there young yrs of finding there identity! the difference is Police was more involved in the
streets as of taking from other crime related activitys an supplying them back to the streets in favor of harm to others, to make PD look like they are determind to help hurting fam lost of loving fam members when they involved in it by a secret that no one suppose to tell an if any leaks they become a story on blog are a snitch that sale drugs get arrested an back to da streets in a week riding a new car looking like they have a case pending! new generation see an hear alot growing up an rotation continue cus under pressure youngsta's break when freedom are yrs are involved! The point to this is police know when,time,place when killings,shootings about to occur! its take 15mins to ride threw the hole city! 15mins to have poss suspect! 15mins to the streets back to normal! city went bad when all races became part of PD gang an they info became not important an they no to much! PD send a hitter out an now it look as if sum one in opposite hood involved an now the cycle begin an they cant stop it now! but now its a revival gang's? no its a revival corruption that PD needs to Protect an serve and Not serve an destroy! epa Police started the War believe it or not they at war wit there job!cus theres no more crackheads free at last put them under they wings! OG's dont hang out no more! but youngsta's trying to hustle in streets an there's no money to be made! next option robbery,killing,burglerys that epa PD scope out for them! So begin crime watch an gang fighting in the EPA PD office then hit the streets an figure it out! it might change the hood cricket cops!!! self improve.
