This is an amazing program!! While in high school a few years ago I saw this and it opened up myRead More eyes that I have NEVER driven after having just 1 drink. Some might call me paranoid but just think I could have just saved your mothers life. Oh and as for the DUI check points. SCREW THOSE, they're a waste of money!!

What evidence do you have that checkpoints are the sole reason DUI related deaths have declined? YouRead More cannot pinpoint that statistic to the effectiveness of checkpoints when you cannot directly see the impact of those checkpoints. For instance: the average checkpoint nets under 10 arrests directly related to drinking and driving. Many of those arrests are due to other violations (driving on suspended license, warrants, etc.) You can falsly say "oh we only had 1 (one) DUI related arrest during that checkpoint, yippee we kept all the drunks off the road" and that would be a false statement, for it does not accurately measure how many drunks avoided the checkpoint. I believe the statistic is due to heightened awareness overall, not directly due to checkpoints.
Dave Raines April 15, 2014 at 05:12 pm
I never said that checkpoints were the sole reason for the decline. In fact, I said, " DrunkRead More driving is a complex problem that takes multifaceted responses, of which checkpoints is only one, albeit an important one." I have multiple studies to back up my contentions. I ask again (I think this is three times), what studies back up yours? My belief is based on research and verifiable facts.
ChrisG April 16, 2014 at 06:48 am
@dave, I tried to find the stat I cited back in November or December on the patch. The source wasRead More from a government site like NTSB or something similar. I could not locate it yesterday. The instance of pulling someone over for any traffic violation during hours of darkness nets an average of 3% DUI arrest. That is more than three times what checkpoints net. And that is not specifically looking for DUI. Your claim that checkpoint deterrence is stronger than actually arresting more drunk drivers is poppycock. I also do not believe that 20% reduction in drunk driving figure bandied about due to checkpoints. Now I'll ask you to put your thinking cap on. What do you think makes more people not drink and drive, the fear of a checkpoint in one part of town or the fear of getting nabbed anywhere in town? Those resources are wasted when used in checkpoints. You can get the same deterrence factor through advertising. Let's get more drunks off our streets and cite poor drivers. Strict traffic enforcement is the key. How can you argue with logic?
Thresher 200 April 15, 2014 at 01:30 pm

Justice For All April 16, 2014 at 04:21 am
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 innocently 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 this 31 year old man 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 $50-75k 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: What's going on with this guys face? Does he look like he has plucked eyebrows and lipstick? Very weird, to say the least.

Scarf ace- while the primary function of the CHP is traffic enforcement and investigation in majorRead More metro areas- in remote areas they are the law enforcement. Not every city has a police force and not every county has a sheriff dept. And they are real cops- as you say- with the powers to arrest. So calling them AAA with guns just shows your mentality.

Jose jose jose, quit thinking in the past. In the first case, this so-called "meltingRead More pot" of immigration last century was 95% from Europe. A European melting pot. Nowadays is completely different, we get the scum refugees and the fat cats rich that scammed their money from the working class of thier own countries. Anyone with $250K can BUY a business visa from US immigration, that's all it takes. THAT"S why you see most of the liquor stores and gas stations are owned by fresh-off-the-boat immigrants. And if you try to immigrate to the countries they came from? It's nearly impossible. Just try and see. They don't want us there. They just want to come HERE. And I am a native American. This is MY country. And I will prove it someday--there will be a terrible reckoning when the dollar goes bust and martial law is declared. It can't happen here? think again. Look back just 80 years to the time of the last Depression and see ........ My surname is Russian. Why don't you google to see the requirements getting even a TOURIST VISA entail. And guess what happens in Russia when you sneak into their country? Answer--the same thing that happens when you sneak into ANY country, 'cept for the USA. HAMMERTIME!
Joe Rubalcava April 10, 2014 at 09:21 am
Jorge Jorge Jorge, now I understand why the police didn't name the liquor stores involved, becauseRead More of mental cases like you. if you knew where the stores were, you would probably be trying to blow them up.

@Andy the Analyst: Thanks for sharing. I assumed Pauly was joking about bulls being bovines, notRead More mammals. But in case it wasn't a joke, now he knows. (And just in case Pauly wasn't joking, he may be surprised to learn that not only are bulls mammals, but so are humans and chimps, cats and dogs, and... as crazy as it sounds... even whales and dolphins are mammals.)
Martha A. Rodriguez April 15, 2014 at 08:14 pm
Every single one of you that feels or thinks it's acceptable for this event to take place, runningRead More with the bulls, is ignorant, self absorbed and cruel. The extremely ignorant person that stated "Animals have no rights" is pretty much pathetic.

@KMA There are a number of recent cases locally where the DUI driver has been charges with murder.Read More Some of these have gone to trial. One local woman got 14 year in state prison. ~~~~~ These were usually not the first DUI offense. They call it second degree murder usually.
KMA April 11, 2014 at 12:03 pm
Paul- that is true the key phrase is"not the first DUI offense."Most first time offendersRead More are charged with misdemeanor manslaughter. Depends on who the DA is and what kind of judge is sitting.

Ashley- well hopefully the victim has cancelled her cards. If not, she should. And a clerk at a stopRead More and rob is not going to cooperated with a private citizen on id'ing a customer. That is a privacy violation. If the PD asks, that is different. While the store clerks are supposed to verify names on cards with ID, if it is less that $50, most don't.
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. IfRead More you havent already done so, contact PD and let them know which Circle K it was at, date & time, and that they used EBT. then they can look into their system who used an EBT card around that time and find them! Although i feel like the toys will likely not be found by now, these people still need to be caught.
