I know the facts, they are innocent. I will argue the point at the next city council meeting.

have you gone to the police yet? I know you don't like them very much, but the city council is more likely to support you if you go to the police also. If you want to help your friends, you need to do both.

Alicia crank needs to get a clue. Just maybe the race issue in this town has more to do with illegal immigration--a crime just as much as hate crime is a crime. Shut down the Day Worker center, police up El Camino of day workers, send the INS into our businesses and schools. We provide surrouding luxuirous communities of Palo Alto and Los Altos with a ghetto of illegal labor and then stamp ourselves as having a problem with race relations? Incredible.
In this article on race relations, the term Latinos is freely used to describe the victims of a supposed hate crime. In the article on a gang stabbing, no mention of the fact that the pepetrators were Latino, as well as the victim. Was their a hate crime or just a crime. It depends how racist you are in how you answer. Talk about a selective use of labels. We are supposed to believe our town has a issue with race relations when it is being over-run with illegals, descendents of many which wind up in gangs? What about the non-racist, non-Latino bare majority in this town who owns property and pays taxes and puts up with failing schools burdened by children of illegals and increasingly threatened by gang-related issues? Let's not forget about how some of our neighborhoods are being turned into ghettos. Aren't we the victims here? Being against illegal immigration and the many ills it brings to this town does not make one a racist. It makes one a law-abiding citizen.
