Vic: Your right about what you said and not to disagree with you but only the one that is about toRead More die unfortunately from perhaps a painful disease can rationalize how they want the end game to play out. Perhaps another look at assisted suicide might be in order. True, it may be against certain religious beliefs but its between God and the person that is begging him to take him and no one else. A policeman may have to think now before pulling the trigger and say to himself, Am i doing this person a favor? or, Will i feel good i put him out of his/her misery knowing that? or am i in front of some nut with a gun and can i talk him out of this? You cant pay me enough to do the job the police have to do and i wouldnt want to make the decisions they have to. Dont know what tomorrow brings, and i dont know what i personally will do if tomorrow brings bad news.
Vic April 23, 2014 at 06:34 pm
I agree, all-c-ing-eye. It's a hard concept to wrap your head around no matter which way you look atRead More it. It's sad that, in this day and age, anybody has to make a decision like this, whether it be the suicidal victim or the police having to decide whether to talk him down or shoot him down. Is assisted suicide legal anywhere in the U.S.?
Vic April 23, 2014 at 06:40 pm
To answer my own question, Oregon, Vermont, Washington and Montana have all legalized physicianRead More assisted suicide.
Concerned Person April 23, 2014 at 11:19 am
A PART OF THE PROBLEM IS THE CUT IN BUDGET FOR THE COUNTY MENTAL HEALTH FACILITY. Persons thatRead More needed prescriptions to functions that needed a doctor interview to refill used to go to an appointment at any of several offices. The county cut out the branch and made everyone have to go to the main county mental hospital. There were no APPOINTMENTS. EVERYONE HAD TO WAIT ABOUT 4 HOURS OR MORE TO SEE THE DOCTOR FOR SEVERAL MINUTES AND GET THEIR PRESCRIPTIONS REFILLED. People were standing in line for two or three hours every morning before the doctors even started seeing patients. The waiting AREAS WERE CROWDED AND STUFFY. I took someone there on several occasions. The nurses and staff were nice, but there were not enough of them. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- I THINK IT IS LIKELY THAT THE NUMBER OF SUICIDES IN RIVERSIDE COUNTY INCREASED BECAUSE OF THIS. ----- I THINK THERE WERE PERSONS WHO WERE ABLE TO BE EMPLOYED WHEN THEY HAD THEIR MEDICINE HAD TO STOP WORKING OR GOT FIRED BECAUSE THEY HAD TO MISS SO MANY DAYS FROM WORK TO GET THEIR DOCTOR INTERVIEW AND MEDICINE.

I honestly think people dont understand that Temecula is NOT the kind of town that they can come inRead More and think we are those residents that feel all safe and ignore the potential criminals that come into town. We have seen enough that we have gotten really big into neighborhood watches, and like on our street, most of us had started setting up affordable surveillance cameras, because our cars kept getting opened with some device or some just got into cars, and with our social media groups, which are neighborhood based facebook pages, we right away post if a neighbor had a car opened, or if we have just called on suspicious cars, and all along that criminal thinks we are being quiet in our house...but we have photos posted of a guy that we caught breaking into a car..and it's posted at the hazit, that someone put up on their wall outside. We are so proactive here, and getting more and more connected with our neighbors here in Temecula that it's crazy good, and we are pushing out those signwaving vagrants, who ask for change, lingering around stores, druggies, asking for "gas money" by telling everyone else to stop giving even a dime to these vagrants, scammers, because it brings more of them, and they are decreasing now..so fast, especially with the mayors new law/program to get them out..

Most lower income people want safe, clean places to live where they can work and raise a family.Read More Most crime is associated with drug use and poor parenting. Neither of those factors are dependent upon socio-economics. That being said and back to the article........These men do not look unemployed and do not look like druggies.

Concerned Person April 22, 2014 at 04:42 am
It is only fair to arrest and punish the Johns and probably more effective. I have read this is moreRead More effective than just arresting the women. A lot of men feel they do not want to risk having the wives or children finding out they are doing this. ------- If there were no Johns around there would be no prostitutes hanging around for very long. Notice also most of these Johns arrested are from out of town.

Justice For All April 18, 2014 at 12:29 am
@JD tippit -- Preliminary press releases almost always report the minimum amount from the bailRead More schedule. Final bail is usually adjusted after investigative reports are completed. The county D.A., or in this case the U.S. Attorney (bank robbery=federal offense), will seek enhancements base on the investigator's findings. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- This explains why your friendly "sock sniffer's" original bail started at $5k, but escalated to $1M when evidence revealed that he was allegedly a serial pedophile who attempted to kidnap a young girl. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- When the US attorney gets this case, there is no doubt that the multiple counts of bank robbery with a firearm will cause his bail to soar. But, I doubt that you will see that level of follow-up in the media for this case. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- BTW: I don't mind explaining these things to you and others who are unfamiliar with the legal system. I just find it sad that you tend to frequently embarrass yourself on the Patch by making absurd comments before you have made any apparent effort to educate yourself. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Perhaps, if you spent just a little more time gathering some facts on topics, you could provide insightful comments instead of the misinformed remarks that you usually make. I'm sure it would draw more positive attention, rather than the hateful disdain from others that seems to follow you. ~Please accept this as constructive criticism... good luck.

ChrisG April 16, 2014 at 11:35 am
@dave, sorry, that came across harshly and was not my intent. What I mean is that since the rovingRead More patrols are over three times (that is 300%) more effective in getting drunks off the road than check points, it is fool-hardy to use less effective anti-drunk measures. That just wastes resources that could be used on more patrols and ad campaigns. Both of which have more impact on the public's perception of drinking and driving. If you are truly in favor of safer streets why would you support check points. What is your agenda?

After extensive investigation including additional witness and victim statements, the RiversideRead More District Attorney was consulted on the case. It was determined today, April 17th, that probable cause existed to re-arrest Mr. Garcia for 664/207PC - Attempt Kidnap. In addition, several additional charges of 311.11aPC - Possession of Matter Depicting a Minor Simulating Sexual Conduct were added to the case. Police Detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Mr. Garcia's arrest for the above listed charges. That warrant was served at 1:15pm and Mr. Garcia was taken into custody without incident. He remains in jail at the Southwest Detention Center on $1 million bail. To date, 12 victims have been identified in this case.

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!
