I missed this meeting but I sure hope they discussed about talking more to the neighbors before calling the police. You gotta figure, police get wrapped up for racial profiling when all they’re doing is responding to a call that a racial person called to snitch on their neighbor. I feel bad for these cops but I sure do respect what they do. Menlo PD, me and my family support you.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
