  1. I’m glad to see that SJPD is so effective in combating violent crime. The MN has been remiss in publishing all the great police work that is still done, routinely, in San Jose. With hundreds of more Officers, San Jose could once again become one of America’s safest large cities.

  2. Of course no-one publishes the ethnicity of the criminals, since that might pop Jayadev’s and Cordell’s balloons.
