Tennickly and Brain Washed, the part about attending church has to do with the fact that many of theRead More recipients attended the same church as the lady who passed out the dolls. I'm glad it all turned out well. Many of these families were very worried.

Isn't it our Government that grants citizenship to all cultures that come into the States? - IfRead More maybe they were more stringent... and there you have it. When I have to reside in other countries, I have to jump through serious hoops just for a work visa, and I was invited. Hmmmm... did you know that when other countries are here on a holiday visa and have a baby the baby is granted immediate citizenship... then they fly back to their home country to raise the child... instant access. Yeah, we'll let anybody in and deal with the problems like this...

Why the autopsy since he was electrocuted?
Amanda LaRosa July 19, 2014 at 05:50 pm
As is the case in so many matters, how he came to contact the 'hot' (charged) wire(s) could have aRead More bearing on liability. For example, the victim could have had a heart attack, fell onto the wire and as his weight caused the wire to disconnect from its source (with electricity still flowing through it from the other end's connection) he touched the wire as he fell or slumped. In this scenario there is no negligence, only a tragic accident. In another scenario, the scaffolding could have been constructed in such a way that pressure was placed on the wire, causing it to disconnect and come into contact with the scaffold, making the victim's electrocution a matter of negligence on the part of whoever constructed the scaffold. Note: These examples are provided only as an illustration of why it may be important to establish the victim's health at the time of injury.

Penny Arévalo July 18, 2014 at 04:00 pm
They have to investigate every death in an OC jail. These are just the results of that inquiry.

I'm sooooo tired of reading about convicted criminals crying about their constitutional rights being violated! And even worse, they're winning! When did our justice system get castrated?!?! The problem is the victims can't cry for their rights to NOT BE KILLED so they're being forgotten.... shame on our justice system and this idiot judge

My grandson works on Project for the Innocent and if you recall the news, Kash Register was inRead More prison for 34 years for a crime he didn't commit. It was a death penalty case. His innocence was finally proved. I used to be for the death penalty but now I'm not. Our judicial system is broken. I'm not a bleeding heart liberal, actually I'm very conservative on mostly everything except this. I think appeals should be stopped. Go to jail, stay there FOR LIFE! Death is an easy way out!

This whole story is very tragic and horribly sad. After reading this article, it sounds as if thisRead More son has a serious jealousy issue regarding his parents love and his other siblings. I hope we will learn more about his motives as the story unfolds. In reality, jealousy is a very strong and negative emotion. As we just witnessed here, it is capable of killing an entire family (physically and emotionally). Just so sad...
Brainwashed_In_Church July 10, 2014 at 09:15 am
"...a serious jealousy issue...." When does an "issue" become aRead More "problem"? Don't we have "problems" anymore? Are they simply "issues"?

Bob, no that is not what I meant. If you start at the beginning of the conversation, you will seeRead More that I am answering a question as to how many people were arrested. My intention is not to dodge checkpoints. My son just turned 16 and I have brought him through a couple of them to educate him as well. We had one in Mission Viejo a few weeks back. I checked the blotter to see if there were any arrests. I think there was one. Unless some do not get reported. There is no dodging DUI's down here. Eventually whomever does it, will get caught. D-

Mark Adams July 9, 2014 at 07:16 am
Based on the cyclists own video the sheriff should be asking why he didn't obey the rules of theRead More road, why he was riding on the very edge of the bike lane and why he swerved out of it prior to the confrontation It doesn't appear, by his own video, that he's totally innocent in this situation
KC July 9, 2014 at 08:43 am
But our law also doesn't work that way, retaliation isn't given an exemption from prosecution andRead More hucking a water bottle at someone is still considered assault and litering, plus rolling coal would also be something they may be punished for.
