The Mass Incarceration of East Palo Alto: Silicon Valley Needs to Take Accountability
Jessica Salinas

There is a huge difference between getting busted for smoking weed, and getting busted for burglary. I live in EPA, and the guys that got arrested are neighbors of mine. They have been breaking into cars, houses, and businesses for years, including mine. I will wholeheartedly agree that we have a mass incarceration problem in the USA, but in this case I am happy to see the police taking felons off the street. The evidence of their guilt is overwhelming, and they have broken into hundreds of homes throughout the area in the last few years. I think it is great to discuss prison & sentencing reform, but it is also important to note the proper use of police in keeping the population safe from the bad guys.
