Agree with Lauren, there is NO mention of Gilroy murders on this website, at the hands of a domestic terrorist (motivate by the hateful rhetoric out of our DC leader). Yet there is a story on Gilroy Gardens and tons of sponsored links mentioning Gilroy. You can bet if one of the victims was from an affluent resident of Palo Alto it would be a top story. Are some lives more worthy of coverage than others?

VOTE BLUE 2020, that is the only answer. Spineless Senate won't even pass background checks bill. #DITCHMITCH

^ C'mon guys, we agreed not to give domestic terrorists a media platform to display their endeavors. Especially local. No photos, no headlines, no encouragement for copycats. Like with Caltrain track "incidents". Perhaps we can have some frank discussions with law enforcement this evening at PAPD National Night Out.

We also need to talk about angry men
and about toxic masculinity.

Quite simply...there are a lot of unidentified angry/disturbed individuals just waiting to step out of their abodes to wreak havoc on the public at large.

While many are 'in waiting' something triggers their actual actions and no MD, psychiatrist or politician can accurately explain the reasons.

Cuz other countries don't have that?

Head down to Perth and tell them they're not masculine enough. Let us know how it goes.

Just like every other country. Give it up.

It's the GUNS.

Y'all been listening to #MoscowMitch again.
