Uh-oh. I hope readers will remember the "innocent until proven guilty" thing in regard to the claim about "three Hispanic men."
We've had several cycles of car break-in's on Martens and Carmelita....numerous cars broken into on the same night, sometimes valuables stolen from cars, and a few cars have been stolen (and thankfully recovered) over the years.
Guess who was picked up by the MV police and found guilty in court, for one recent string of car break-in's?
An 17-year-old white male, resident of Los Altos, high school drop-out, who was having some fun at 4am on his way home from a night out with friends.
yes, let's not describe the possible suspects just in case we are wrong. Better they get away then risk a PC episode.
gee, let's see...
I guess you could check with the police to find out the percentage
of ethnic groups causing the most mischief. For your own AWARENESS.
I don't care if they were Cockapoo's, They are what they are. Car thieves in the night. I am wondering why the witness didn't call the Police right then and there. Why did they wait till after the fact? In my neighborhood, we all know if someone is up to no good and we call the police immediately. Thats the only way these people who ever they are will be caught. Also its a good thing nobody had to use their car when they were being robbed,because they might have gotten hurt by these morons.
They left in a white boxy "fan", HA...ha...ha
Two cars we're hit at Gunn HS a few weeks back. In these times, good to keep your possessions with you (computer, purse, etc...) rather than invite a broken window.
Being one of the victims and having talked with the woman - another victim - who reported the physical description of the perpetrators, she made no attempt to stereotype or offer racially-motivated characterizations. What is she supposed to tell the police ... that she observed three sentient beings breaking into her auto ... in the hope of not causing offense??
I agree with Bob .... Grrrrr.

Times are tough just lock your car!
We had several break-ins near Moffett and Middlefield between 6/23 and 6/27. Not sure exact date as I didn't check my car but they stole similar items reported in the article. It doesn't sound like the police are doing much (case number for insurance claim...), therefore there is little preventing this from happening again.
Hopefully these punks get caught and charged with ALL of these burglaries.
Don't miss out on the discussion!
