  • May it be one of the thieving scum bags. Or better yet a murderer.

  • Another? WTH?!

  • Not safe to go to eureka unless you are packing for self defence only ,its getting that bad .

  • Someone DIED. They possibly have parents & chlidren. They may have been accused but not convicted. They may have been merely destitute (a crime in our culture). It is a spiritual time of year, good for both renewal & forgiveness.

    • I am with you, VF!

    • Thank You. Everyone is deserving of love and understanding. Judging and condemning give people this false sense of superiority that makes them feel good about themselves. But it does nobody any good. Its part of the hurt that causes people to act in ways that put them in jail or hurt others. Judging, condemning, makes for a small, limited world.
