Thanks for sharing...We need to see how due process plays out in court. Having said this, what is equally disturbing is the fact, paloaltoonline.com closed further comments to this story coming from minority East Palo Alto.

“Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.”

In a rare exchange with its CEO Bill Johnson, he attempts to explain or rationalize what I perceive as a racist motive for doing so.

Censorship and paloaltoomline.com


However, the readers will need to reach their own conclusion. But given the fact, this young man is an African American teenager from East Palo Alto, gives weight to Mr. Johnson’s motives of closing comments through censorship.

In addition, the Palo Alto Police department has a very, very long sustainable record of racist treatment, of not only those of the African America community of East Palo Alto and Menlo Park, but Mexicanos and Latino’s of Redwood City and perhaps beyond. That fact, is indisputable.
