Congratulations! As much as we are hard on the cops when they blow it, we should celebrate when they do a good job and get these cretins off the street. I see all the bashing of Palo Alto PD is always front page news in papers like the Palo Alto Daily, but this big story in was on page 6 of that bird cage liner today! Horrible. Good work Almanac for doing this right. Good work PAPD and MPPD.
