Now the Taxpayers have to flip the bill to house, feed and medicate these killers. They need the Big Sleep.

I guess my comment about the "victim" in this case was not appreciated.

Sorry, but here are three people, the killer, the accomplice, and the victim who could have done something useful in life but who through their own actions lead to one dead and two in prison.

Whether it's copycats, wanna-be's or the real deal, VMV is still tagging around Castro Elementary school. The residents of the neighborhood have to clean it up themselves.

Wish the MVPD would be more proactive on that. Although I do like the graffiti ordinance.

There was a Norteno tag that was up on Castro's campus for long long time.

A dead gangbanger and another one in prison. Sounds good to me. Keep these thugs off the streets.
