ERMAGERD ... DERMERSTIK TRRRRESTS
o'really: ihopOVERpancakes:"WOODSIDEWhile en route to his trash can, a resident encountered a 60-pound mountain lion.""This one was the most interesting for me."I know, I thought mountain lions were way bigger than that.
serial_crusher: My neighbors called the cops because of a suspicious vehicle driving by their house at the same time every day for a few weeks.Turns out it was their next door neighbor driving to work.
flucto: OMG this is about RICH PEOPLE? Let's all be OUTRAGED and grind them into free meatloaf for the poor.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: How do such incredibly stupid people accumulate so much money?

sleeps in trees: TheOther: 2242 - Welfare Check - Officer checked the airport terminal after multiple 911 calls were received from a pay phone at that location. The officer was told by one child that another child had seen a monster and so had phoned 911. The officer did not find any of the aforesaid monsters in the terminal.That is actually adorable.
meyerkev: SuperNinjaToad: Not sure if all the crime reports of the different townships are placed next to each other but it seems like the areas surrounding Atherton are pretty POS dangerous places. We're talking going from picking fruit tress, paranoid of UPS guy to rape, murder and carjaking 3 blocks over. WTF?Well, East Palo Alto spent a large time as the murder capital of the world, and that's right next door.(Heading North to South):Redwood City is fairly middle-class (which means that their house costs more than my parents in the Midwest will earn in their lifetimes. SF is crazy).Atherton is super-super rich.Menlo Park is slightly cheaper Palo Alto.Palo Alto is super rich because there's negative amounts of mass transit, a bunch of college students (including med students who figure that an extra few thousand of debt really doesn't matter) who need to be near campus, and all the startups, so you have the entrepreneurs and the college students competing for the same real estate.Mountain View, Sunnyvale, Cupertino, and Santa Clara are basically Redwood City, getting a tad cheaper as you go further South (Well East at this point).I've heard that parts of San Jose are slummy, but couldn't verify.And then the entire East Bay (so, Fremont and Hayward) is where "poor" people live, because rents are cheaper. With disgusting traffic (The bridges, 880 and 680 are just parking lots that make 101 look nice), and $100/month bridge tolls. It's just not worth it, IMO.So the fact that Atherton has super-super-rich people problems, and that the poorer areas have normal people problems does not surprise me./Seriously, rents go down 30% going 5 miles from University Street to Mountain View, and if Atherton had rents, they'd be even higher.//Mountain View.
JohnnyRebel88: The police might not be reporting other criminal offenses, as this is done in my area to keep the property values stable. It's all smoke and mirrors. Never trust police and their agenda when it comes to disclosing all the information. They are better liars than the criminals sometimes. There are good ones as well, just saying this is how it is done around here.I grew up in an area that was an all white community and realtors wouldn't imagine of selling a house to someone other than whitey, they would be cutting their own throats because of their selling fee, however one family was allowed to buy a house because he was related to someone famous. That was my one "colored" neighbor growing up. Things have changed a lot in 20 years. Some good, some bad. It's a shame when NYC and Jersey a**holes decide to move in this area because it's cheaper than their "home", as many use this area for a drug distribution hub for several areas.

Never trust police and their agenda when it comes to disclosing all the information.And let's not forget sheer laziness. Last time i had an attempted break-in, I called the cops and the guy on the line made it sound like the fact that he would have to fill out paperwork and send a form in the mail would just be so difficult that it wasn't even worth the effort and if I wanted an officer to come out I would need to sit there and spend an entire day off work to wait for them. I wonder how many thousands of property crimes of that sort are never reported for that very reason?
scottydoesntknow: That wasn't a man delivering a package, that was a rapist who knows how to cover his tracks when discovered
