I seriously doubt whites in liberal Menlo Park are calling cops because they see a biracial kid minding his own business. Unfortunately, parents often have a blind spot and are unaware or dismissive of certain behavior...

Let's ask the MP PD. Did people actually call officers out in the noted instances? If so, why? What was your determination of the situation?

Don't miss out on the discussion!
