Damn this sucks those were good people just caught up in bad things. where do i get my heroin from now, they'd hook it up fat.

Bob, Dirty, guess you were a customer of theirs? Actually it is very sad that these people got so wrapped up in drugs, selling and using. Hopefully somewhere in their sentences is some counciling and drug rehab. They are still young enough to turn themselves around and get on the right road and not look like corpes :/
Brenda September 30, 2012 at 07:37 PM
They need to see these pictures of themselves and see what the drugs have done to them. The red head girl doesnt look too bad yet, but good lord the others are perfect pictures of druggies. The typical eyes, lack of caring for themselves, and those sores and more sores they pick at all day. Those are horrible on every user. Maybe seeing what they look like will help make a difference in helping them want off the drugs, do their time and start anew.

Don't worry, folks. Good old Steve Newman will sweep them all in to the quarry.
Stanley September 30, 2012 at 11:24 PM

Temecula is growing up and with growth there will be pain. The heroin problem has been developing since the late 90's. Temecula has to much money and not enough parent involvement. Parents believe that trusting their kids is good enough.. How a bout trust, but with caution of outside influence. How about coaching or mentoring your kids friends. Kids influence each other more than you can your son or daughter. Temecula started like Sunny Mead and can possibly mature into Mo-Valley, hopefully not. STAY INVOLVED WITH YOUR Neighborhood kids!!!!!!!!!!!

Cory Rose is a loser. He has never been a good person. He owes me thousands of dollars in child support and he is an abusive asshole. He has never once taken the responsibility for his daughter. I hope he ends up in jail FOR LIFE. He is an awful person and you just cant help some people. Its sad these ppl got to this point but they only did this to themselves. All losers.

It's very unfortunate that Cory is in a bad place. There is always hope for any drug user to get help and change their lives. What is also sad is that a child has been kept from an entire family, grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins, because of the mother punishing them for a bad situation. Cory can change his life, how does a mother lie to her daughter saying the rest of the family isn't worth knowing also. Hopefully everyone will change for the better.
TVOR October 21, 2012 at 09:30 PM
Ben, you can't seriously be saying that you simply rented a room or something there and were unaware of the drug activities there. I would buy that you were not involved to a great extent but people are not usually arrested unless there is evidence of guilt.
TVOR October 21, 2012 at 09:39 PM
A lot of people have expressed an opinion which leads me to believe they don't blame the drug dealers for being involved as if it were some sort of unfortunate event they had no control over. People CHOOSE to get involved in drugs and they are totally resonsible for the harm they do to our society.

The location on Boguta Way is very close to where there was a late-night shooting over the summer in what I recall was a likely drug-deal ripoff. I did a quick search but didn't fiind the story.

Brenda December 01, 2012 at 08:02 PM
Spot on Nathan and I hope alot of young kids get to read what you wrote. I can tell you, myself being 52, that from zerio to 35 you need to be enjoying life, your family, children, a career, growing up, having good clean fun, and preparing for getting older. Because zero to 35 goes by wayy too fast and then all of a sudden you are 52. Thanks Nathan for commenting, and hope you speak of this when you see kids around too the neighborhoods.

Brenda December 09, 2012 at 11:00 PM
Well of course its not all true, but alot of it is ;) As far as drug ring it sure has enough people with the product, doing the product, and probably enough people who came forward that sold for them, and also alot who said they bought from them. Thus that makes a drug ring no matter how many. You can have one head of a drug ring and 3 kids that sell for him, obvious this group was considerably larger then that, as was the phone contact lists and different meeting areas. Also any teenager can be an A student, in girlscouts, drive perfectly, and still get involved in drugs, with a drug ring, and still get hooked on drugs horrible. It does not make you a bad person at all unless you would steal or hurt someone during the course of the sales, the burglaries, robberies etc. that this group did. There are many people of all ages, for all differnt reasons addicted to drugs and alcohol and its horrible and hopefully BEN that will be the case with you and that you will be found to need help, not locked up. Unless of course you were the master mind behind all the burglaries and robberies of course, which I somehow doubt. If you turned and gave evidence you might have come out pretty well. Perhaps update us on this case? Would be nice to know.

They had to combine the two stories of the two houses because the police would look dumb if you read that there was in fact no drugs in the house on boguta. you can call the police and ask specifically if any heroin or meth was discovered. if they were honest, they would tell you no. Also, the two incidents were completely separate and they were complete strangers. You can the police and verify that as well. How do i know? I was inform of this fact by a family member who is a cop. You people think you know when you don't even have a clue!

Ask the police if a single stolen item was found in the boguta house as well. They would not be able to produce a single evidence. I only want the truth to be known, nothing else. What I have stated is in fact the truth. I challenge anyone to prove me wrong. I do not know these people, nor am I defending them. Just happened to investigate the matter thoroughly because the incident occured in my neighborhood.

I don't think anyone cares enough to try to prove *you* wrong in particular. I trust that those arrested will have a chance for a good defense and their guilt or innocence will be found by a jury of their peers. Riverside Sheriffs always seems to be hiring, detective. Go for it. I bet they'd love to know whatever it is you have that they don't.
ex-cop February 10, 2013 at 09:56 PM
YOU DON'T THINK ANYBODY CARES? WHAT KIND OF REMARK IS THAT? THAT OFFENDS ME! YOU BETTER WATCH YOUR TONE. DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE IN OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM? DO YOUR RESEARCH, YOU KNOW DAMN WELL THAT THE SYSTEM IS CORRUPT AND JUSTICE IS SELDOM SERVED. AMERICA, LAND OF THE IMPRISONED. HIGH RATE OF INCARCERATION. YOU ARE AWARE OF THE UCC 1-308? What they are doing is selling stock in the prison system by selling the prisoners’ accounts as securities through the securities exchange. They are making huge amounts of money off it. They privatize the prisoners’ accounts and bring all these investors in and what they are doing is underwriting all these prisoner’s accounts (bonds). This is after the surety company guarantees the bonds. Then they are underwritten through an investment bank or banker. Then they are put out on the market and resold to the public. http://wariscrime.com/new/how-illuminati-are-trading-prisoners-like-cattle/

calm down, what are you gonna do? ur an ex-cop! You better watch your tone! bwaaa ha ha. You should write a book or maybe go on the lecture circuit with all your great information. Maybe get paid for your time! or just go back to bed. whatever.

wow, you are great and we should all follow your advice. please do not forget to read sarcasm. Thank you.
That Temecula Guy February 19, 2013 at 05:15 PM
Let me clarify: I don't think anyone cares to prove YOU wrong. The DA has to prove his case, so if you have any evidence that could help those poor saps, go talk to their defense. You sound like a nut, even if what you have to say is interesting. Crazy ranting is how you come across. I'm fully aware that our system needs reform, but every opportunity California has to vote for change, they fail.
