The real surprise in this story? That she wasn't too embarrassed to report the crime.

Next up is the Post Office. Then we hit the Federal Interstate Highway Administration. God onlyRead More knows how much the roads are used to transport drugs. Then we outlaw water. You need this to grow pot. Maybe it's just easier to go after the guy with the drugs only.

Drugs that people need , are often available online for 30 to 40 % cheaper than the U.S.Read More establishment suppliers .It has to be delivered somehow .

Fact: People are wrongfully convicted. Even 1 innocent person wrongfully executed is too much, theRead More fact that you are ok with that says a lot about how little you actually have thought about this. How many bad guys do we need to kill to make it ok to execute 1 innocent man? 100 to 1? 20 to 1? 1 to 1? If you think that death is the only effective deterrent to crime that matters then are also very confused. Do you really think that it is pointless to put anyone in prison, probation, or fine them, since death is the only deterrent that matters? I encourage you to actually think about your position and how you arrived at that. Killing out of emotion (revenge) in no way makes murder ok. Killing in revenge is the ultimate sign of weakness. It takes strength to hold your rage and remain a civil thinking person. I couldn't care less about revenge and consequences. The criminal justice system is about the safety of our citizens, not vengeance. Locking someone up for life is enough because it removes a killer from his potential victims. It also costs the tax payers less money than killing them. Being in favor of a policy of executing people is also incompatible with belief in Christ, and when 70% of this nation claims to be Christian it should give you a good idea how many are full of shit that this is even a debate. Bottom line: No, your immature and selfish desire to kill people does not make it ok. It does not make us safer. It solves nothing. It wastes more tax dollars, and we have and will again execute innocent people because juries and judges are composed of people, and people are fallible. If you are ok with all that you should be locked away from the rest of society where you can do no harm. Sorry for the rant, long day and I keep seeing this subject brought up everywhere I look due to the court's decision. Thank you all for letting me get this out of my system =)

I feel sorry for the cruel and unusual suffering of the families who wait 20 + years for theirRead More murderer's sentence to be carried out.

They didn't waste much time with Timothy McVeigh who killed 144 people including children but oneRead More official said that he's getting a free ticket out of this world with hardly anytime in prison.

CHP has possession, so they can check for fingerprints.

If you don't know these families, weren't a witness to any relevant events and have not experiencedRead More what either family of the victim or accused are struggling with then why would you want to interject a comment that proves all of the above about you?

Debi - welcome to the world of online reporting where unqualified, ignorant, often biasedRead More individuals are encouraged to post their musings (so the publisher of website can track "user engagement" as a tool for selling advertising)...

We moved back from Texas and promptly went in to the DMV and registered in CA. It has been 3Read More months, no plates, no registration, and no clue. So ya, please write down my info and turn me in. And then immediately go write about how inefficient our government spending is....
Daniel July 14, 2014 at 11:37 am
It's between the DMV and the vehicle owner and the business of nobody else. What if the tags wereRead More lifted off the vehicle? So the disgruntled neighbor cost the govt. $$ for the investigation. Is the Govt. so inept that they can't keep track of the vehicle owners with expired tags?
Roberto July 14, 2014 at 10:19 pm
I live in Lake Havasu, AZ. most of the year. When it gets too stinking hot in the summer, I move toRead More a small condo I keep in Davis. Both states insist I register my vehicle in their state. I chose Az. because it's half the cost of Ca, and because registering a vehicle there is about one tenth the hassle. The CA. DMV basically sucks! Thanks to the freakin 'Do Gooders' and Tattle Tales, I've been pulled over more times than I want to think about because I run Az. plates on my car. These idiots need to mind their own business!

Released two weeks ago ? And gets a gun for a robbery .I wonder if the gun dealer did a backgroundRead More check ? Oh , he didn't go to a dealer . So much for gun control law .I guess obeying laws is not high on this guys list . Too bad he didn't get shot in the head .Bastard POS !
Goofpod July 12, 2014 at 12:02 pm
Nice. Thanks, Oakland. Thanks to all these liberal judges who will let these guys out again. And, aRead More big thank you to all the liberal lawmakers who relax the three strikes laws. Insane culture we have that stopped teaching crime doesn't pay. It's just an inconvenience if you get caught. Shoot first, the only true justice left in this insanely liberal mess.

Gov. Brown forced release by Ca's supreme court. or 9th circuit because of over crowding. We areRead More the only industrialize nation with very high prison populations. We are the only industrialize nation that doesn't have gun control. Do we still have a industry making waring weapons for war?

Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood are the kind of tribal animals who can never be rehabilitated.Read More They can never be allowed back into society, not ever again. But some Rose Bird bleeding-heart leftist judge will "give them a second chance". You elected the leftists who appointed them. I did not. My deepest sympathies for Mr. Stow and his family, sincerely.

well, no surprize here, but this murderer will face a civil lawsuit now, and I hope all his assetsRead More will be confiscated,including his home. Ask OJ about that. Deputy gelhaus, do everyone a favor including yourself, stick your Glock .40cal pistol into your lying mouth and pull the trigger, I promise you won't feel a thing, and this planet will be blessed by your departure
Rock Fan July 8, 2014 at 02:30 pm
Well , this is some new info .But I doubt it will change the minds of these people screaming in theRead More streets for a murder charge . Because we all know a veteran cop just relishes the chance to shoot down a Mexican kid in the street . Always a great career move .
bruce mallon July 9, 2014 at 07:38 am
Gosh this mary wanna stuff must be really strong to make a cop shoot the kid, what, 8 times? ThisRead More has got to be the first time since Dan White was let off for murder because he ate a Twinkie to come up with this FOX propaganda type of logic. Now this cop is supposed to get off because the victim was stoned. Wow, what a great country this has turned into. Oh i forgot he was a Latino. Now that explains it.
John Richards July 9, 2014 at 12:09 pm
You are so wrong Bruce. No one is using the drug issue as a reason to let the cop off. The cop wasRead More well within his rights to shoot someone who looked like he was about to fire an AK-47 rifle.

Equally tragic to this event is the us vs. them mentality delivered to the crowd by perceivedRead More leaders: "They brought the violence to us," he said. Who are "they"? Sad, the boy died and now the grieving adults are blinded into misguidance. No winners here except, perhaps, the lawyers. :(

"At today's rally, Maria de Los Angeles, of Roseland, said law enforcement officers who mayRead More have served in Iraq and Afghanistan before they were hired need to be screened for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. " --I think that is probably the most logical thing I've heard anyone say at a rally...while I see nothing wrong with coming together for something you believe in, it was becoming quite obvious that the rallies that were being held after the shooting were being led by individuals whose main focus was simply to rile up the crowds & condemn ALL law enforcement, I really hope that doesnt become the case again...you must act better than those you are trying to condemn,...
