Police Video vs. Privacy

               Thanks for clarifying that citizens lose their right to privacy, even in public bathrooms, when there exists a reasonable suspicion by one party that a crime is occurring or is about to occur. This should allay any fears of the Menlo Park and Palo Alto City Councils regarding the perpetual recording by their officers while on duty.
               "The Nov. 11 incident went out as a "suspicious person" call, which Chief Jonsen said normally turns into a case where the person is in fact somewhere they have a right to be. This can make it a challenge to know when to activate a camera, given that the battery carries only about a 3-hour charge, and the officer works a 12-hour shift."

Forty-Niner bathroom brawl



 SAN JOSE -- A 41-year-old man has been identified in the beating of another man in a Fowler Creek Park bathroom Monday, authorities said. Police are looking for Francisco Javier Olivo, of San Jose, who they say is wanted for felony assault after he attacked a man in the restroom of the park at Altia Avenue and Cortona Drive on Labor Day afternoon.
The man, who has not been identified, suffered non-life-threatening facial injuries after Olivo hit him several times before letting him leave. The assault was captured on cellphone video by someone who knew Olivo, police said, and it was turned over to the police.
