According to the NRA people such as Mr. Mount have a right to own military assault rifles. Do theRead More readers think this makes any sense?

According to the California School of Culinary Arts people such as Mr. Mount have a right to ownRead More Knives. Do the readers think this makes any sense?

Mount fired 3 rounds from the Ak and hey landed short of the vehicle-more range time for him. AndRead More the story mentioned a "machine gun"- where was that.? An AK is not a machine gun, even if it has been altered to fire full auto. The author of the article needs to become a bit more technically educated.

The Patch is a great source for information, unfortunately many of the facts and details they reportRead More are inaccurate.

Pujol Street is no longer the Pujol Street of years back. The area has cleaned up very well.
christina July 20, 2014 at 11:49 am
^^ Agreed. Checking out all these articles, everyone is talking crap on the area. Yes, it used toRead More be bad (most of the apartment complexes in the area have been established as Crime Free Multi-Housing for over 15 years), but have any of the people talking trash even been there recently to see that? Seriously though, just as normal as any other area in the city. I'd love some of these people to see a real ghetto and see how Pujol compares.
KMA July 20, 2014 at 12:27 pm
Ah the real ghetto- like Casa Blanca in Riverside-like southwest LA around MLK Blvd- yes Pujol wasRead More never that bad- and that was where the VFW was for many years-now if they could just get rid of the beggars in the wash area.

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.

Jamie, What difference does it make? He's going bye bye for a long time. Most likely the rest ofRead More his life. The next time he is paroled it will be in a pine box. He has a violent history and learned nothing from the 17 years he served in the past. Glad to see him leave. We don't need people like him around these parts. I'm surprised he didn't get also charged with Felon in possession of a fire arm and a illegal one at that. And I hope his neighbor learned a lesson from this near encounter with death and learns to stop annoying people because the next time he may not be so lucky.
Jamie July 17, 2014 at 09:36 am

There will be more accidents there. The speed limit (posted) in the construction zone from PerrisRead More to Scott road is 55MPH. Everybody does 70-80 MPH and the CHP is not to be seen, literally no enforcement. I hope I don't have to read about a fatality.

We should be more like Mexico and house 11,000 inmates in a prison designed for 4,000Read More inmates.....and risk bloody riots and massive breakouts.

Now how does one force oral copulation? Was this female toothless? I'm sure if she bit off hisRead More member that would put a instant stop to the whole situation since there was no mention of any weapons or use of fire arms mentioned. Something sounds fishy about this case.
KMA July 14, 2014 at 02:25 pm
Ken- I would think the female would be a bit leery about taking a bite. Or it could be a case of yesRead More I will, but now I won't. Maybe she was slapped around and figured the less of two evils. And you don't need a firearm to force somebody to do something- depends on how big she was- or maybe drunk.
