I am all for abolishing the "CATEGORY" being a commenter's responsibility to fill in before commenting.

Palo Alto public's "right to know" is hampered by the City's refusal to allow the public to hear on a scanner exactly how often crimes are committed whether it's burglary or some other type. "Most residential burglars commit their crimes during the day" is a remark that is unsupported by facts. We all know that we should keep our doors locked (day and night) but holding this crime victim up as an example of "he had it coming" is the opposite of what we should be reinforcing. The police have a duty to let us know how many crimes are committed, in a timely fashion, such as allowing us to hear on a scanner the calls they respond to.
