Really? Of course that crack head has nothing better to do than sue the city of Mountain View!!! Thank you MVPD for arresting this idiot and I hope that she gets nothing! These druggies need to stay off of the street and away from everyone.

And don't for once think that the officers were NOT in danger. You cannot predict what a crack head is going to do and if they are going to suddenly go insane on you. I'm glad the officers restrained her because the last thing we need is some idiot drug addict running around the streets of Mountain View.

wrong town obviously. After a brief break during/just-after the remodel, the dopers are back in Lytton Plaza in PA.
