Justice For All April 17, 2014 at 08:11 pm
Oh, ye of little faith… although I frequently lack confidence in our system of justice, thisRead More article does say something about the case and the investigators. There has clearly been a conscientious effort made to get this pervert off the streets for the safety of the community. A $1M bail enhancement is no easy accomplishment. It obviously demonstrates that this case was far more than just "some poor guy with a dirty sock fetish," as some ignorant comments have alluded. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I have no doubt that this guy is looking at some heavy jail time, as well as lifetime sex registrant status. And, as a bonus, child molesters usually don't fair well in general population.

Salem witch hunt...crime of the century?... Oh ye of little memory----I remind you of Sgt RobertRead More Bales, who shot 16 Afghan children, piled their still living bodies into a bonfire, setting it alight with gasoline in front of their families. He was brought back to USA and is comfortable in his clean, warm cell. God Bless America......

LAKE ELSINORE RESIDENT April 17, 2014 at 06:44 am
In my opinion Lake Elsinore needs to replace the current Code Enforcement Officers and the man inRead More charge Bill. In my opinion and my belief they haven't done a good job for years. Our new City Council will make that positive change if people tell them they want officers who enforce the codes!

"pay $190,725 in restitution, which will be divided between People for the Ethical Treatment ofRead More Animals (PETA) and the city of Lake Elsinore." PETA? They do not believe in animal ownership. They have let dogs out of their cages at dog shows, endangering the show dogs. I think all of the money should go to the city of Lake Elsinore.
Sarah Lish April 17, 2014 at 01:07 pm
It goes to show people shouldn't make judgements about things they don't know. Anyone who has had aRead More reptile who ate rodents as a pet know that "fresh kill" (killing the rodent just prior to feeding) is the preferred feeding method. Also, if the business was keeping them in horrible conditions and allowing them to "starve to death" shows they know nothing about running a reptile breeding business. PETA is the last organization I would allow to investigate anything that had to do with animal rights. Their political and ethical agendas are completely deranged. To reward them in the form of monetary compensation gives them the green light to continue their screwed up practices.

trueconservative April 17, 2014 at 11:40 am
Would anyone hire or want to work along side of this person? I have walked into some businessesRead More where someone who looked like this worked and walked right back out again. Seems to me this guy does not make good choices in his life. If he has kids which I hope he does not I wouldn't let my kids play with his kids. Who wants to subject their kids to a man who looks scarier than a Halloween mask? Doesn't set a very presentable appearance or example for what to aspire to. I do judge on appearance and actions and this guy gets a zero.
Sew Good April 17, 2014 at 01:44 pm
Yes, true, he has a family and children and being dad of the year he tattoos their names on hisRead More face. In this case, judging the book by the cover hits the nail on the head. This guy is a skinhead, neo-Nazi, anarchist, white supremacist, hate group leader. People like that are beyond help and don't belong in society.

Same old same old bull from many of the usual posters on the Patch: 1. Some of you who are theRead More most boisterous live in the county does this mean you will be storming the halls in Riverside? 2. Trashy is an opinion I have seen many of you and some I consider trashy. What is trash to some is not trash to others. 3. Things will change if you take responsibility for your communities call the proper authorities. Lowes, Home Depot, Target, etc. on are private property so you have to talk to the Store Managers and they will run off those who are loitering. 4. Crime is out of control all over the United States and this has to do with the values not being taught to children. 5. Join Neighborhood Watch! The "I don't want to get involved mentality" needs to stop. Get involved call the police if you see a problem and go up the chain of command until you get something done.
One Voice April 16, 2014 at 03:00 pm
To be clear, there is a fine line between Lake Elsinore and the County as suggested, such a fineRead More line it could be as small as one lane or the other of a street such as Machdo. The left side of the street being County and the right side of the street being city, the same would follow suit with Grand Ave. This diversion is irrelevant since weather you live on the right side or the left side your address is still Lake Elsinore and you do walk, drive, shop, dine, & spend your tax dollars in the City of Lake Elsinore and are subject to whatever happens in the City of Lake Elsinore. As far as speaking out and contacting those at City Hall they could give a rip about what side of the street you live on, for the most part they have all been very open and responsive weather it be a phone call, email or a Council meeting. Don't let some discourage you because you live on the left side of that street, speak out you will be heard. Those that live in the County area are just as subjected as those in the City and they do care about their City.

@Thresher 200 you make me sick!
Justice For All April 17, 2014 at 05:30 pm
This guy is demonstrating a psychological pattern of a much deeper paraphilia. From a criminalRead More standpoint, he is a pedophile, pure and simple. To rationalize his deviate behavior as some misguided adult fetish is simply wrong. There is absolutely no comparison. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- He crossed a significant line when he engaged in contacting children. To comfortably contact children like he has, takes a level of courage that is only manifested after someone sinks to a significant depravity. It is actually a type of milestone in a psychosis, if you will. If you think that this is just about dirty socks, then you simply can't grasp the dark truth. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I have no doubt that this is just the tip of the iceberg. I can reasonably suspect that there are many more victims who have yet to be identified, whether they are local kids or members of this guy's own family. I have no doubt that other people who know him are probably not surprised that this happened, although pedophiles tend to be adept at concealing their behavior. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I don't want to second-guess the investigator handling this case, but given the information just from local news sources it seems that a bail enhancement was justified. Perhaps $25-50k bail instead of a mere $5k. A similar case in Northridge set the pervert's bail at $150,000, albeit there was an allegation of false imprisonment: http://articles.latimes.com/2014/feb/26/local/la-me-foot-fetish-arrest-20140227 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- BTW: Is there something going on with this guys face? Does he look like he has plucked eyebrows and lipstick? Very weird.

Saw the trucks and also counted 7 police cruisers rocketing by at approx. 100 mph on LakeshoreRead More (speed limit 45 mph) Drive.
KMA April 14, 2014 at 03:29 pm
I doubt if there were 7 cruisers on duty- much less rocketing by, especially that time of night.Read More Most departments might have 5 on shift for the whole watch- and that would be the end of mid watch, so most would be heading back to the barn. And unless you were going 100, how would you know?
Pauly April 15, 2014 at 09:08 am
You can doubt anything you want KMA, Im telling you I saw and counted 7 police cruisers blasting byRead More my house just past midnight on Lakeshore drive at approx. 90 to 100 mph . The reason I know they were going that fast is because I am approx. 75 feet away from LakeshoreDR. and its not the first time this has happened.

trueconservative April 9, 2014 at 08:53 am
It is amazing how many of these people come from outside the community. My daughter works retailRead More and when they feel that someone is shady they try to see some form of ID to see where the people are coming from. It is amazing how many are from Orange County, San Diego County and the Los Angeles County area? I guess they feel they will be harder to find if someone is looking for them. When I read local arrest reports a lot of the criminals are from out of the area. I certainly will watch for them.
CB April 15, 2014 at 01:10 am
AND JUSTICE FOR ALL- if they used a food stamp card, they would have to have used a PIN for it.
