Palo Alto Weekly smearing city of Mtn View in a headline which should read "Man in intensive care after shooting in PALO ALTO" It may have happened near Mountain View but was not IN Mountain View, in addition this investigation is under jurisdiction of Palo Alto police. Why give the impression that Mountain View was somehow associated with this crime? Who was the victim, what were his circumstances? Tell us the facts accurately and completely.

I agree, sort of.

It’s not on the old West or, say, the boarder with Mexico so I’m not sure the boarder is relevant at all.

But.... it’s a trivial point.

It appears we need a wall on the Palo Alto border to keep the criminals out. And let's make Palo Alto pay for it.

This man is no longer in critical condition. He died. Very sad & I hope they catch the suspect soon.
