Why are not more drunk drivers being charged with murder as well? If you are driving impaired andRead More cause a death you should be charged with murder. Why was the young white man who caused the deaths of two women in the backseat of a car a couple of months ago not charged with murder? He killed TWO innocent people. I have to ask because the only person I've seen charged with murder is this young Hispanic man. (rightfully so imo). But why is that?
Ken Briggs April 23, 2014 at 07:09 am
yes this dumb drunk should do at lease 20 years for killing some one , so what if he was drunk , heRead More knew that he should not have been behind the wheel . but you will see that the courts will let this sick puppy off .
Ken Briggs April 21, 2014 at 12:24 pm
good , but letshope he stays in forever. no good time and ifhe gets out he should sign up as a sexRead More offender for life . hope the girl is ok .

How would PG&E PAY for any damages? With their base source of income comes from theirRead More customers, won't they just roll the acquired damages on to their customers?

Apparently not because your generation acts as if what's happening isn't happening or as if its onlyRead More like this because we "don't have brains" when In reality we are a product of our environment so maybe its the parents that failed there children ! Everybody isn't as strong and educated as I was to overcome all of what I saw now granted that doesn't mean they don't know right from wrong but is it always right telling the truth when you know and seen people who have told the truth be murdered and be labeled as snitches . I'm not defending anyone but I feel truly broken for them because I know at least one of them is innocent and had he told it could have ment he didn't go to jail but live in fear or die being labeled as a snitch !
Ken Briggs April 19, 2014 at 08:02 pm
dolly may, you are right, but the young folks today do not care, just where are they all gettingRead More guns to kill with ? the one that is innocent can see another lawyer or you can help him by getting that group that helps these kind of cases , see what some law school can do for him .
jayo4282 April 21, 2014 at 02:09 am
Mr Briggs, I can only guess you don't know the true complications of situations like this inRead More general, or this case specifically. I have connections to one of the victims, and one of the young men convicted. Dolly may is spot on about this case. Based on scientific evidence, and the inconsistencies between the witnesses, there was SUBSTANTIAL doubt. As much as I want justice served, I don't see how they could overlook the facts, and take these boys lives. Where's the justice in THAT?

thats a lot of help . but what did you say , ask the scammer if you can call them back , get aRead More phone number , and do not go to western union to send money for you are dumb and stupid . do not give out c c numbers . tell them you will have to call them back and get them to tell you where they are at .
Hugo April 16, 2014 at 09:43 am
Let me guess, this man was not really qualified for the job but got the job because of affirmativeRead More action. Just like other "entitled" people who think the world owes them and they just take. All the liberals feels so sorry for these people that they just let it slide by. Remember Muslim bakery? I know someone who worked at a section 8/ below market housing complex. Drug dealers were living there after their grandmothers died. People threw garbage all over and trashed their apartments and then demanded to have the apartments renovated. Our system is broken. Personal responsibility is what we need. Also, in a civilized society, people think about what is good for the whole, not just the individual.

Shouldn't the bail be more or as much as the amount he is accused of stealing? 20% of $500k is moreRead More like a tax; he could just bolt and still have plenty.
Ken Briggs April 16, 2014 at 09:20 pm
Hugo You are maybe right , but with the low bail, will he still stay around ? doeshe still going toRead More the same church ? hell he should repay every dime plus interest and jail time . with his smart as kids maybe they mightknow how to repay the funds . any way he should be not paid to do nothing not even to use a computer.
Ken Briggs April 11, 2014 at 08:48 pm
lets see if the BOY does even fifety years of that . should shoot his butt some time so he will knowRead More what it feels like . oh well guess his boys will try to have a new court date and start all over.
Larry Smith April 12, 2014 at 05:14 am
Finally, some gang-banger gets a sentence that is appropriate. I hope he serves everyday of thatRead More sentence for taking a life so recklessly. Maybe such a sentence will make others think twice. The judge should be commended for his thoughtful action.
Ken Briggs April 12, 2014 at 05:35 am
Larry Snith Yes the judge did the right thing , but if this BOY does even %0 years, it would beRead More great, but theywill have a re trial for this case because this BOY was black and his bleeding lawyers want to see if they can make some cmoney off this . but the courts should have vthis BOY shootbat so he would know what it feels like before he ever get out of vprison .

>> outstanding contributions to the field of victims’ rights. << This award toRead More the woman who decided that there were no grounds for a prosecution in the case of victim David Lamont , who ended up in a months-long coma and has a long road of rehabilitation ahead of him. after a confrontation with rowdy teens outside his Pleasanton home? Shame on the awards committee.

This is a sham and a disgrace. This woman has been a part of 4 years of injustice for NanetteRead More Dillard, seeking a scapegoat for the board and county's mismanagement of ACAP funds. It's a reprehensible disgrace that she, or anyone representing the Alameda County judicial system be rewarded for anything. http://www.change.org/petitions/california-state-auditor-investigate-the-closing-of-acap-and-the-theft-of-300-000-in-federal-anti-poverty-funds-by-alameda-county-including-stimulus-funds#share

Does this bill compromise the 6th amendment right of accused confront the witness against him?
T. Brickle April 10, 2014 at 09:30 am
Very good question Mr. Buckings. I would hope that was considered when teh bill was authored.Read More Tri-Valley residents would be shocked if they knew how much human trafficking is going on right here in our "backyards". It's not just about prostitution and other sex-related acts, although that is a MAJOR component. Forced labor/involuntary servitude has many forms from prostitution to selling fruit on a street corner. For those interested, check out this website: http://millionkids.org/

Probably a good idea Steff but there is the possibility that she slipped and fell in a remote area..
Steff April 7, 2014 at 09:49 am
agreed, but one never knows...it's all about managing risk...i hope she is OK!!!
