Dear Menlo Park police department,
Please consider yourself warned. You saw what happened to the police department in Palo Alto when they said they were looking for a black man for a string of muggings that ALL victims reported as being a black man who perpetrated in their neighborhood. If EPA has their way, you will have to expand your search beyond just "a black man and a black woman". Call it lunacy, but this is what being poltically correct means in today's world.

So much for the theory that Palo Alto is "separated" from East Palo Alto by an impassable FREEWAY. You guys have SO overpaid for your houses over there. Suckers.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
