hmmmm seven ticketed for DWL and only three vehicles towed....Two arrested so in total 9 vehiclesRead More should have been towed. Did you know if an unlicensed driver is driving a car with current insurance the insurance company generally won't pay because of the DWL?

Fact: People are wrongfully convicted. Even 1 innocent person wrongfully executed is too much, theRead More fact that you are ok with that says a lot about how little you actually have thought about this. How many bad guys do we need to kill to make it ok to execute 1 innocent man? 100 to 1? 20 to 1? 1 to 1? If you think that death is the only effective deterrent to crime that matters then are also very confused. Do you really think that it is pointless to put anyone in prison, probation, or fine them, since death is the only deterrent that matters? I encourage you to actually think about your position and how you arrived at that. Killing out of emotion (revenge) in no way makes murder ok. Killing in revenge is the ultimate sign of weakness. It takes strength to hold your rage and remain a civil thinking person. I couldn't care less about revenge and consequences. The criminal justice system is about the safety of our citizens, not vengeance. Locking someone up for life is enough because it removes a killer from his potential victims. It also costs the tax payers less money than killing them. Being in favor of a policy of executing people is also incompatible with belief in Christ, and when 70% of this nation claims to be Christian it should give you a good idea how many are full of shit that this is even a debate. Bottom line: No, your immature and selfish desire to kill people does not make it ok. It does not make us safer. It solves nothing. It wastes more tax dollars, and we have and will again execute innocent people because juries and judges are composed of people, and people are fallible. If you are ok with all that you should be locked away from the rest of society where you can do no harm. Sorry for the rant, long day and I keep seeing this subject brought up everywhere I look due to the court's decision. Thank you all for letting me get this out of my system =)

So we are only going to enforce our laws for 3 days what about the other 361 days this year? CHPRead More needscto do their job and bust these truck drivers who are putting the rest of us at risk.
Alexander Cuttleworth July 17, 2014 at 01:28 am
3 days are better than nothing, and I'm thankful that they are doing this. I drive to Rancho MirageRead More 5 days/week and can't keep track of the times I've been cut off by a big rig changing lanes. They often don't signal a lane change until just before moving over, so I have to hit the brakes hard. There have been many times when I thought I would be hit, either by the big rig, or the vehicle behind me. The other problem, I've noticed, is that they don't always stay in the right two lanes which slows everything down and creates a potential danger. I'm with Susan; bust them!

DUI should be the primary traffic enforcement priority.
ChrisG July 16, 2014 at 02:44 pm
That's right Marvin. The problem is people think checkpoints are a good enforcement tool when thatRead More is not the case. The stats I've seen are abysmal compared to saturation and roving patrols. This problem shouldn't be muddled with PC crap. Let's get real stats published so localities can choose what is best to keep the most drunk drivers off the roads. Thanks.

I was coming home from a 4th of July party by Lake Elsinore about 10 PM. No PD and hardly a car out.Read More From the 15 mile ride it took us to get home, I think we passed 3 cars. I thought that was weird because Grand Ave. is a haven for drunk drivers.

How many new state prisons are under construction? How many additions are being built at existingRead More facilities? AB 109 is a stop gap measure. The state needs more capacity. When will more beds be available?

You wrote "fire ripped through ..." In the photo and then the actual article states fireRead More was contained to an outside wall. That is not "ripped through" that is damaged.

I appreciate your comment Jeremiah and I don't think I could've said it better myself, so I won't beRead More redundant. Except to repeat only one thing-- This is why Mr Melhman: "the age limit is based on the medical risk profile that would endanger both the employee and the public he is tasked with serving. The likelihood of sudden debilitating circumstances increases with age and these jobs have a stress level which can precipitate it." I'm still of working age yet from day to day I have bizarre health issues pop up. I run abt 3-5 miles per day, 5-6 days a week. I'm in excellent health. I'm also clever and a bright individual. Yet I've begun having pains in places, and I'm also getting forgetful. My eyesight is decreasing. I get stressed easier than I used to. Because this is our natural human aging process. we age. we just do. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Now, in reading this article, I didn't read, nor did I realize we were discussing being let go at a certain age. I thought we were talking about applying for the job, where can age limit is set due to medical and statistical averages. So I agree with you, I do not think a person should be let go the day they turn 62. Most others do also, that;s why we are offered pensions at particular ages for incentive. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Lastly, your point using vote vs age limits is like comparing dogs to elephants, and completely irrelevant. We're talking about a person's capability to perform a certain type of job.

**** And I bet SouthernBelle knows something many women and men have forgotten - it's a whole lotRead More more fun acting out the roles when men act like men and women act like women and we all play the game and enjoy life as equal but thankfully different! **** Any good man who values his life knows women are superior to men and don't argue with them because even if you win, you lose!! :-) **** hahahahahahahahahaha!!! Yep, exactly how I feel. There are many many careers out there to choose from. Maybe a girl's passion is to put on 100 lbs of equipment and run up stairs to fight a fire and carry out a 250 lb man- but I'm guessing more aren't than are interested in that. But I'll tell you what, if my daddy's house catches fire and some gal runs up his stairs she best be able to carry him down because HIS life depends on it. And if she can't, then her taking a job she's unable to perform is just wrong.
southernbelle July 12, 2014 at 04:01 pm
one more thing--Mr Melhman, Not sure how long you've been in the area or if you are familiar with LARead More county hiring for Police and fire. But over the past 10 yrs they have had to lower their physical ability testing, as well as their hiring requirements because they had to account for women's physical abilities, and not enough men or women were passing the orals due to prior drug use (even trying it once counts), criminal records (DUI's fall in this), etc. This is also why the quality is lower than it used to be. We haven't seen nothing yet! It's abt to get a whole lot worse because no one wants police officer jobs anymore. so sad how we treat them!

I suspect some "daughter-in-law / Mother-in-law" drama here.......
Brenda July 3, 2014 at 08:04 am
The article says BELIEVED to have been with her grandmother. BELIEVED to have been seen with herRead More grandmother. So, the editor is basing the story on what the mother and the initial police report says. NOT ON FACTS, just presumptions like most news articles are until the actual facts come out. As you can see the actual facts are not being released as yet other then she has been found and is fine. It sucks because it leaves it wide open as to where or who had the baby or maybe the mother forgot she was still asleep in her crib all day. Like the man who just recently went to work all day, even out to lunch and thought his baby was at daycare and she was actually in the back of the car, with car seat turned to the back per law, and he just did not see her. ******cough*******we have some truly jacked up parents out there these days. Nor, can we overlook the issue at hand that someone brings up of her being the Exmother-in-law and might have Grandmother visitation rights and/or is part of the pick up drop off for the father. That drama alone could be endlesss especially with the "Mother" supposedly giving the article a little juice by sayng the Mother in law has a history of "mental illness" which probably means, depression, anxiety which something like 80% of our country has one or the other with the top medications being subscribed are for anxiety and depression. I put very litle faith in a EX anyone who calls anyone from the EX family mentally disturbed in any fashion as they try to pile up police reports for the courts in their custody battle. Something I feel, if true, wasted alot of police man hours yesterday that the parents should be paying for along with a chunk for the EX Mother in law for calling her mentally disturbed. :/ Just my personal theory on the case.

Jo S July 2, 2014 at 02:20 pm
I can't understand why there isn't a light there. There is way too much traffic at that intersectionRead More especially when the sway meet is open. Next time it might be a pedestrian. I think that might be money well spent.
MH July 2, 2014 at 03:04 pm
We were traveling on 6th street just past the elks lodge and they guy in the sedan flew by usRead More probably 60-70 miles an hour. I watched for his brake lights as he approached the stop sign and they didn't come on. I seen the truck turn out and knew it was going to be bad. It was a miracle he didn't kill himself or anyone else. There was a family on the corner waiting to cross the street and if he would have hit that truck in the door it would have killed them too. The guy was pretty messed up but still breathing when we got to the car. We couldn't tell if he was high or drunk.
Greg M July 2, 2014 at 03:53 pm
Jo....I can tell you why. It can easily cost in excess of $200,000 to retrofit an intersection withRead More a traffic signal. The city does not have the money to repair the streets, let alone invest in an improvement such as this. It is unlikely that a signal would have prevented this particular accident.
