That is terrible! I recall reading a story about East Palo Alto and Menlo Park gang activity. Wondering what that is all about? If I recall correctly the police in each town are working together to do a TV movie! Don't know if I am mistaking here? If the police is doing a movie, who is funding them? Also, if police department motive is to get fame by doing a documentary about Menlo Park-East Palo Alto gang activity, there maybe some social issues about police activity in instigating violent crime situation. Police can be abusive too, and if this is taking place; police is putting fuel in the fire, whoever that officer(s) is/are , I hope he/her will be fired! I have serious concerns.

This is so sad. I don't know the answer, but it surely seems some funds of some kind need to be focused on giving these disaffected youths early help and a stake in their futures. Year after year and gangs claim more and more young men.

the spot shoters are apparently not of good for this community. The abc gang the talaban need to be stopped and justice brought too the families of these fallin victims. I have lost three family members at the hands of these hoodlums. Believe me the pain is 24/7 thank god at least one of the abc gang affiliates is in jail on unrelated charges. Unfortunately no amount of time will bring back my family members. God will prevail in time and karma is on its way!!! :(
