A detective is not the one to determine whether or not this woman has a mental illness. There areRead More doctors and specialized tests for this.

The information posted about that night is inaccurate, and I'm not sure if its deliberate or not.Read More Anybody can look up a 1982 calendar online and see September 4th 1982 was a Saturday night. It was Labor Day weekend just before the school year started. Now, I can't say for sure whether there was a Golfland in 1982, but where Golfland is today at Wolfe and ECR (El Camino Real) did not exist. It was the Woolworth Garden Center at that time. The report I read in the paper stated a driver delivering to Woolworth Garden Center found her. Not a year goes by that I don't think about Karen, especially in September. I remember the night I heard the news. I had just gotten home from camping at Pinnacles with my mom, step-dad, sister, and her friend who lived next door to us. When we got home, my next door neighbor called me and asked what Karen's last name was. When I told her Karen's name, she told me she had been murdered. She then brought over the newspaper for me to read the story. Karen and I dated that previous school year. Her murder was part of my desire to become a police officer. While I realize the colder the trail goes, the harder it is to find witnesses and evidence...I will never lose hope that her killer(s) will be brought to justice. And if I'm able to, I will be in that courtroom to see the face of the animal(s) that took such a wonderful life away from her family and friends. She will always have a place in my heart.

Yup, yup. Guess what his plea will be? Ooops!

Since the article was silent about any offenses the teenagers may have committed, I assume theRead More teenagers did nothing wrong. That being the case, I wonder why they were "subsequently turned over to family members." Did the deputies responding to the call over react? Could this incident been hanclled better?

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."

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.

I pity the man. I hope the system is intervening and providing this child some seriousRead More intervention. What about the girlfriend for remaining with this guy. She's probably a victim of DV as well. It's a sad sad state of affairs for all parties involved. The grandmother did a bang up job raising her daughter who ended up with such a loser. I hope the police made a cross report to CPS.

Mike GH T. made a very good recommendation: what can we do to make sure that the police make aRead More cross report to Child Protective Services?
