There should be special courts for psych cases just as there are special courts for financial,Read More maritime, juvenile, family and other specific types. This does not mean getting off with any difference in time, but it would mean a more accurate routing and disposition of the individuals. In many cases people do not want to change and would rather be sent to standard jails eventually released and still a danger to society.

Some people do not have even an ember of empathy and need more separation from others and extendedRead More treatment, maybe life long, this may or may not be a case. And, many people just do not have a sense of proportionate response. No matter how trivial the response is irrationally disproportionate.

Nothing Is local on here anymore. Terrible decision to drop local editors for this junk no one caresRead More about. I used to love how we knew everything going on around here from the patch. Now nothing...horrible, horrible decision! !!! I keep hoping someone starts their own patch type of thing. I will be dropping this one.

And we don't get any local news. Oxford Patch did not report the burglary's in Oxford.
BBW April 18, 2014 at 08:40 am
We don't have any local news, just boring politics, rained out stories of "Sandy", PoliceRead More stories without names and details. All the usual "cub reporter" crap. Don't blame the reporters it's just an on line "rag". Not even the ability to find stories, investigate a good story, or "MODERATE" the posts and comments. Example Notice the picture of the perp? Check the ears, eyes and face. Wrestler, MMA, brawler?What's your take on the guy, and why did he leave town? Drugs? What did the witnesses say to the cops… lots of good stuff in town, but poor reporting from the "PATCH". No follow-ups either.
RICHMOND, Ca: Police Release Surveillance Photo of 2 People of Interest in Target Parking Lot Shooting. Photo provided by Bay City News

I see three people in the photo, but only two are people of interest. If I'm the person ofRead More non-interest in this photo, I'd be thinking "Hey, how about some additional clarification!" Do you mean the two guys wearing hats? The other guy doesn't look old.
Gary Matalucci April 18, 2014 at 04:54 am
Aren't they going to miss their classes at Stanford or Cal Tech?
Dr. Ingerb April 18, 2014 at 07:32 am
Agreeing with Giorgio C.: It's a pretty big journalistic gaffe not to identify the persons ofRead More interest, and the editors (or the police) probably should have blocked out the third person's face. By not identifying who is who in the photo, you force us to make assumptions about who the bad guys are based on appearance. Sure, we have to do that in real life, but we're often wrong. It's a good thing for Patch to publish photos to help police after a violent incident, but there should be no need for us to draw on our simplifying prejudices in trying to be helpful. That's very bad journalism.

what else would you expect from this ugly fat loser monkey she should be shot right away- no jailRead More time but dead within 10 minutes of verdict- you wonder why there is so much racism- well here is a prime example of why there is all of it in this country- that monkey is to fat to swing in the trees
L.B. April 18, 2014 at 07:18 am
I agree with the Judge completely
Heywood April 18, 2014 at 08:21 am
Fat & ugly, she deserved to be locked up for that alone.

Zakhary Mallett needs to fire General Manager Grace Crunican. If he doesn't, it will appear that heRead More doesn't give a damn about the average working stiff, myself included. Put the union stuff aside. Just focus on what happened. Two workers were killed as a result of unsafe practices as confirmed by OSHA. These unsafe practices were previously raised as a problem. BART's defense was that the user, us, wouldn't tolerate the resultant delays from safer practices. How cowardly is that, that BART places the blame on the rider? The General Manager is responsible for the safety of their employees. The risk assessment data predicted this tragedy. Safety comes first, but not with this BART management. I do not know if Director Mallett has ever worked a job that included some level of risk. He really needs to put himself in the shoes of the average worker (union or not), and then find a new GM.

$210K is light for deaths on a system that should have very mature operating procedures by now. I'dRead More say heads need to roll before the civil suits start. All of BART needs a swift kick - here''s the chance to R&R management.

Right and going by the fine which was 589 times the cost of the soda, BP, that did so much damage toRead More the Gulf should be fined .... 2Billion X 589 .... right, not in the Corporate States of America. That isn't going to happen. How about we apply that same fine to Wall Street .. hell they damn near wrecked the world's economy and have you seen any fines near 589 times the damage done? Direct your ire to the right people ...
Sandra Harrison April 18, 2014 at 07:57 am
Stealing is stealing and it costs all of us. People who eat the grapes at the grocery store withoutRead More paying for them, are stealing! Every item stolen adds up to added costs to everyone. I would have told this person to pay up first before the fine but the fine is always going to be more than the item. The fine is prevent the person from doing it again. Parking in my city overnight on the street used to be a $5 fine and so many people did. They have since raised the fines. This winter those overnight cars caused a lot of problems. They could not remove the snow with cars on the street. People don't think of the consequences before doing something wrong. Yes, people do things that are wrong but why does this it right? The 89 cents is really cheap for a soda so it makes sense that they don't allow refills for free. I have seen people using soda machines with their own cups. It ends up costing me for being honest. Eat me!
carrie April 18, 2014 at 08:06 am
This is ridiculous. Let the guy pay on site. Waste of tax payers money. Theft is wrong, but this forRead More some reason seems different as many restaurants do give free refills.

>> I'm curious to know what the "'controlled' purchases" involved. <<< theRead More great part of this is the implosion it will cause in the Bulb community./ When one person is busted, everyone else thinks everyone else was the snitch.. maybe someone is. Not likely the police will share their tactics, but it is interesting- you would think it would be tough for a cop to go out to a tight community like that and make buys without living there and knowing a bunch of Bulbies... Just in case they Bulbies are reading this, I'll stir the pot a little more and say yeah, sure looks like you all got a snitch out there... you know i dont do speed, wasnt me... People could try and blame me and other Patch users for calling attention to how integral meth is to the Bulb people, but - reality check- every time one of you goes on youtube or into a City Council meeting, you make it very plain to everyone you are tweeking..... The Bulbies brought this on themselves, and another common action among tweekers is to snitch each other off when they get in trouble... The truth is probably that the police watched KC and sent someone in to buy from her, but all the Bulbies will read in this is that there is a snitch out there.... will any luck they will evict each other over this

Horses should not be nose to exhaust pipe on city streets. That is cruelty and the horse had hadRead More enough.
kathleen macmurray April 17, 2014 at 05:46 am
A horse and carriage ride in a park, fine. But not on busy, crowded city streets. It's cruel to theRead More horse and dangerous to everyone else. I'm with the NYC mayor on this one.
Sheila April 17, 2014 at 05:16 pm
Poor horse. I hope someone equine rescue unit will relieve him from his present circumstances andRead More either give him a good home or find him one.

The Albany (CA) Police Activities League will once again host a Bicycle Rodeo on a Saturday May 17Read More at Cornell School. It is the goal of this fun and free event to encourage riders to wear helmets on every ride, to give young cyclists basic skills for on-road riding, and to teach them the rules of the road to help keep them safe. Activities of the day will also include a bicycle confidence course and spectacular entertainment. The focus of this rodeo is on young riders in elementary and middle school.

The price of pork can also go up because the price of beef is up. It's not just weather andRead More disease, it's also cost of fuel.
mark April 18, 2014 at 05:16 am
With prices rising in all industries, I call it the disease of liberal Democrats! And it is theRead More disease that will wipe out civilization!
mark April 18, 2014 at 05:23 am
When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!

Just another copy cat. They crawl in thu the exit where the toy is dropped into when youRead More "win". Where were the oh so stupid parents while this was going on?
Maggie Magoo April 17, 2014 at 08:09 pm
This happened years ago in Little Falls, NJ when a child walked out of his house and into theRead More traffice on Route 23 and was killed.....what is wrong with parents? You go to the bathroom you take the child with you!!!!!! Lucky his Gardian Angel was watching over him!

Unless Nebraska is now part of Wayne, why is this story of parental stupidity even here.

Hugo April 16, 2014 at 09:43 am
Let me guess, this man was not really qualified for the job but got the job because of affirmativeRead More action. Just like other "entitled" people who think the world owes them and they just take. All the liberals feels so sorry for these people that they just let it slide by. Remember Muslim bakery? I know someone who worked at a section 8/ below market housing complex. Drug dealers were living there after their grandmothers died. People threw garbage all over and trashed their apartments and then demanded to have the apartments renovated. Our system is broken. Personal responsibility is what we need. Also, in a civilized society, people think about what is good for the whole, not just the individual.
lubov mazur April 16, 2014 at 08:02 pm
Shouldn't the bail be more or as much as the amount he is accused of stealing? 20% of $500k is moreRead More like a tax; he could just bolt and still have plenty.
Ken Briggs April 16, 2014 at 09:20 pm
Hugo You are maybe right , but with the low bail, will he still stay around ? doeshe still going toRead More the same church ? hell he should repay every dime plus interest and jail time . with his smart as kids maybe they mightknow how to repay the funds . any way he should be not paid to do nothing not even to use a computer.
