  1. If my count is correct, including the 9 tragic murders by the VTA employee/madman, that raises the total murders to date in SJ to 29, not 20.

    Is there some reason why the VTA murders are not included in the count?

  2. I’ve been noticing this trend between news outlets. All of them are not including the VTA murders.
