I put up the story in Hermosa Beach PatchRead More http://hermosabeach.patch.com/groups/police-and-fire/p/police-13yearold-boy-molested-in-valley-park-bathroom The date from MBPD's press release was wrong. The Hermosa Beach incident also happened this week. I've since corrected the story.

This is crazy. 2 incidents in a week. Do they have cameras outside the bathrooms? Seems likeRead More something they should have.

If caught, this worthless poor excuse for a human should be executed or at a minimum imprisoned forRead More life.

Obama and Holder will say were are just picking on these innocent descent men because they are blackRead More and we are racist. Obama may let them off because of that. After all, Holder has different laws for blacks and others.

Beast, I guess that would count you out, since you are not a local. "Rebuild our community andRead More their resturant" (sic)? Why do we need to rebuild our community? Or their restaurant? You DID see that the crooks were "unsuccessful in absconding with the safe", right? When I see that you are up at 2:33am, I can only assume that you are drunk posting again.

Seems like the MB Police can't catch anyone or anything. Pathetic.

We are a super wealthy community adjacent to poverty ridden communities a couple of miles east ofRead More us. This always engenders crime., from the opportunistic hit to planned burglary and mayhem. The MB police have a tough job, and this kind of offhand, generalized, disrespect in not only a lie, but demoralizes our police, and does no good at all.
Anne Lopez-Gallego April 15, 2014 at 09:11 am
Support your LOCAL POLICE - they are the only thing that stands between you and the criminals!....Read More Maybe the store could have had a better protective barrier for entry into the store. Also a lot of crime in MB could have been prevented if people had LOCKED their doors and windows, and turned on their alarms. The police can't be everywhere, so be vigilant and responsible!

What a joke they're making of this. The reason for this crash is California's criminal negligence.Read More Obviously the "distance" between opposing traffic traveling at 80 MPH doesn't matter. A "K" rail between the two vehicles would have PREVENTED this crash, undoubtedly. But Ca. would rather pay their public criminals outrages salaries, than invest a little of that money on HIGHWAY SAFETY. I hope all the families of the crash victims know that they need to SUE THE HELL OUT OF the state of California .

It's all about $$$$$. No K rails or bigger trucks. If you think that double trailers are scary youRead More might want to steer clear of Oregon mountain highways where FedEx tows triples.
Henry Xavier April 14, 2014 at 12:49 pm
I think the texting, messaging may be a big part of this accident. Please don't drive and use aRead More electronic device. Profesional or a 17 year old girl driving dads truck. Its very scary. I see it all the time. She has it planted on the windshield in her view next to the steering wheel. peace.

@SPH - LOL... so by that notion if I believe the sky is really green with yellow polka-dots thenRead More that's the truth/my truth? No 'bud', there is only one Truth and all else is a lie. I will not continue to argue on this thread however, out of respect for the victims, so we're done here.

@Henry Xavier, next time you claim someone is deficient in their education you might want to useRead More spell check. On another note, you ask (at least I think you are asking), if anyone thinks that the drivers were texting, then claim "This may help" (sic). How does that help?
Danny Jones April 20, 2014 at 09:45 am
Jaques,( jock ) trucks have been clean for some time now. My 1996 does not smoke, maybe a puff aRead More start up- and it has a million miles on the original engine. My problem with the damn CARB NAZIS is that they reneged on the agreement they had with the EPA and now say "well, so sorry Danny. Yeah, umm, we did say your truck was clean enough back in 1996, but now because we have enough whack-job treehuggers backing us, we can do whatever the hell we want". FINE but Commufornia, get ready to pay A LOT MORE for EVERYTHING you buy. I'm already enjoying the higher rates I can charge to brings cars into this backwards state. I continue to run my old truck and Laugh my way to the bank HAHAHAHA!!!!
Jock April 20, 2014 at 10:01 am
Danny. I'm sure Your truck runs clean. Tell me you haven't seen rigs that look like an 1870Read More locomotive running down the road. Don't get all literal, you know what I mean. If you grew up sucking the smog of the 50's here you would have a different opinion perhaps. By the way, they still haven't announced what caused this crash. Believe it, they will sue the $$$$$$ out of those who are causing fires, the trucking industry must go on efficiently and safely it is in every ones interest.

she's a good store clerk. She checked the bill, which is what she was supposed to do. To bad she hadRead More to give him change and a beach bag, but I would have done the same thing and just sent him on his way. Safety first. I hope her employer realizes she did her job, and also took care that she as well as any co-workers that might have been in the store remained safe. I think her quick thinking and composure are commendable. I've shopped there many times, and the ladies are always prompt and courteous. They deserve accolades. Working retails is not easy. I used to do it, and you deal with many different kinds of people, some who are good, some are bad. It is always a judgment call when keeping safety in mind. Its always best to let them go and get away.

Gosh! Who do we know who to picket. I stopped going to Home Depot because they were mandated byRead More their local Council or County in some area's to provide a building with restrooms and A.C. for illegal aliens to stand on the street corner hawking their bodies and wares when our own American Citizens; African, Mexican, Asian, Anglo, etc. were not provided the same amenities. Now where do I go, OSH?
