Hmm, wonder how much all the enhanced enforcement is costing taxpayers? What will it take to againRead More allow fireworks at the beach, where it is relatively safe, rather than driving them all over our tinder-dry areas inland?
Oedi July 7, 2014 at 10:08 am
This cost taxpayers no more than the amount of their tax already budgeted to each of the departmentsRead More involved for fiscal 2014. You don't actually think calling 911 is like calling a cab, do you?
Jozseph Schultz July 7, 2014 at 10:19 am
No, it's not like calling a cab. If there is no demand for cabs, the availability of cabsRead More diminishes. The police budget, on the other hand, never shrinks, and if it is threatened, there are always new crimes to be created, like drinking alcohol outside or sleeping without the benefit of proper lodging.

they only protect self interests and the politicians that wield them and a cash cow.

You're right southern belle.... Most cops are in excellent physical shape..... NOT..I always hearRead More about them a dying child on their back... NOT... Been watching too much tv?

not sure why my comment was deleted??? Anyway-Mr Melhman--I had replied that age should be a factorRead More in high stress and physical demanding jobs. Yes there are a few 70+ who can run marathons, but honestly--it is the unique exception rather than a typical rule. There's a reason the retirement age is set for 62. I'm sure you're smart enough to figure that out. CHP is trying to find strong, fit, young individuals and I personally appreciate it. I want a person whom I pay to protect me, to physically be able to and not get the job because of a loose and liberal age acceptance. Suck it up and get a different job if you don't meet the requirements. the end.

Immigration status??

Let me just take a wild guess here Pat. Are you just a jaded Republican or a racist too?

Amy Wainscoat Anderson: Let me take a wild guess here Amy. Are you just a passive-aggressive PCRead More coward or an anti-white racist too? (I've never voted for a Republican, but I used to vote for lots of liberals, including Jessie Jackson. So put that in your crack pipe and smoke it.)

Good law.
Lynley Kerr Hogan June 30, 2014 at 09:19 am
This law leaves too much room for sexual abusers to skirt the "penetration" part and doRead More other things that still humiliate and scar for life the victim. Not tough enough, I say! I'd like to know what happens to the parents of the children who abuse others. Certainly, they are culpable of something such as neglecting to teach their children how to treat others. Or, will we continue to teach our children that no one will ever be held accountable for their crimes...just like our government and corporations? Of course, no one ever really pays for their crimes as much as the victims. Once an injustice has been done, you can never take it back. How ignorant we are to believe that any good can come after someone has been abused. It doesn't. Ever.

Typical media reporting -- it took exactly 4 words for the story to identify the raceRead More ("white") of the suspected crook, and we're told he "white" again later in the story. Compare that to how the media report the race of non-white criminal suspects. Those bigoted haters who own the media have their anti-Gentile reasons this kind of reporting.

Typical media reporting -- it took exactly 4 words for the story to identify the raceRead More ("white") of the suspected crook, and we're told he's "white" again later in the story. Compare that to how the media [DON'T] report the race of non-white criminal suspects. Why do the media consistently do this? The bigoted haters who own the media have their anti-Gentile reasons.

More proof of the downward spiral society has taken and the kind of news the media is moreRead More interested in.

Do you think he likes his salad tossed or with the dressing on the side ?

This is exactly why I don't help women anymore. There have been several times in my life, when I'veRead More helped a woman who should never have been in a violent relationship with a thug in the first place. And every time, they've eventually put themselves back into the same situation. Going forward, rather than help, my response will be to laugh. These tramps are not worth it.
Susan T. Mahan June 17, 2014 at 08:20 pm
This is a really important activity. Communication with the neighborhoods and county groups couldRead More really improve situations of vandalism, violence, neglect and other crimes.
Susan T. Mahan June 17, 2014 at 08:23 pm
There are positive things that could come from this group. If people find out what the needs in theRead More community are, the county might be able to prevent youth boredom, senior poor health, burglaries or drug sales.
