>> outstanding contributions to the field of victims’ rights. << This award toRead More the woman who decided that there were no grounds for a prosecution in the case of victim David Lamont , who ended up in a months-long coma and has a long road of rehabilitation ahead of him. after a confrontation with rowdy teens outside his Pleasanton home? Shame on the awards committee.

This is a sham and a disgrace. This woman has been a part of 4 years of injustice for NanetteRead More Dillard, seeking a scapegoat for the board and county's mismanagement of ACAP funds. It's a reprehensible disgrace that she, or anyone representing the Alameda County judicial system be rewarded for anything. http://www.change.org/petitions/california-state-auditor-investigate-the-closing-of-acap-and-the-theft-of-300-000-in-federal-anti-poverty-funds-by-alameda-county-including-stimulus-funds#share

Does this bill compromise the 6th amendment right of accused confront the witness against him?
T. Brickle April 10, 2014 at 09:30 am
Very good question Mr. Buckings. I would hope that was considered when teh bill was authored.Read More Tri-Valley residents would be shocked if they knew how much human trafficking is going on right here in our "backyards". It's not just about prostitution and other sex-related acts, although that is a MAJOR component. Forced labor/involuntary servitude has many forms from prostitution to selling fruit on a street corner. For those interested, check out this website: http://millionkids.org/

This is why I just started running with a stun gun...

Probably a good idea Steff but there is the possibility that she slipped and fell in a remote area..
Steff April 7, 2014 at 09:49 am
agreed, but one never knows...it's all about managing risk...i hope she is OK!!!

Jake is a fair and honest man.I know he takes these traits to the bench when he makes decisions.

He took his chances trying to get the court to take their responsibility seriously. UnfortunatelyRead More they turned on him, just as I would expect. It's been a long time since anything but the very worst police misconduct is even given a second glance. They all rally around each other and try to gloss over their everyday brutality and corruption. I have taken a decision to the appellate and the three of them could not have cared less about the misjudgment of the officer, and worse, improper court procedure. So my experience tells me in spite of his priors, he had justification for suing the police, and probably the hospital as well. But our courts judge by where they think you stand in society, not by merits of any particular case facts. It's a sad time in America.
Desert Rat April 13, 2014 at 12:31 pm
So that justifies death threats to the judges? That is even more sad if you think so.

Good hope they keep him in there for life!!! And his sister - hope she does time too - they alsoRead More should have arrested his mother -
Aima Watt Chen Yu April 5, 2014 at 09:24 am
Glad to hear they have the "PERPS" and they will be prosecuted. I just hope its to theRead More full extent of the law! The shooter should get the maximum jail time and his dumbass sister should get her just desserts as well!!

I understand there is a loophole that will allow him to defend himself via the use of his campaignRead More contributions..

We could be reading a similar story about every single one of our "public servants",Read More democrat or republican. Everything is for sale for what amounts to peanuts to the corporations and criminals that make "political contributions". The larger we allow the state to grow the worse this is going to get. "when you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion - when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing - when you see money flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors - When you see that men get richer by graft and pull then by work, and your laws don't protect you against them but protect them against you - when you see corruption Being rewarded and honestly being a self sacrifice, you may know that your society is doomed." Ayn Rand

It is unbelievable to me that he is still collecting his salary. While the federal government wagesRead More a war on terrorism, Yee tries to sell them weapons. I hope he sees the inside of a prison as a result. Imagine how the other corrupt politicians in Sacramento are sweating.

Agreed- I was even in town and following, and I didn't even have all the relevant facts until thisRead More story came out in the press early this am.... however, San Lorenzo residents can follow unofficial alerts like traffic advisories at the facebook page SAN LORENZO COMMUNITY. We follow the CV Patch, because we don't get all the facts until the press does...and Autumn Johnson is great at getting those facts from the higher ups...
Mike March 19, 2014 at 09:16 am
Yes, it came to my phone as "Breaking News". I wouldn't have smack-talked otherwise. If itRead More had come to me as a normal article, it would be fine, but I get lots of breaking news alerts about high school car washes and stuff that happened the day before.
Autumn Johnson (Editor) March 19, 2014 at 10:19 am
Thanks for letting me know, Mike. I did not add a breaking news tag, which is try to use when aRead More story is active or urgent/ important for residents to have quickly. I do not see our red banner at the top of the site, which usually indicates when a breaking news post has gone out. Sounds like we had a glitch this morning. Apologies on that. We are working on a new platform that will hopefully get rid of the glitches.
