  • I got nothing to say about the Hispanic scum bags that Robbed a woman a senior citizen at that is just low no count scum at its finest. I hope they are caught a punished to the fullest extent of the law .[edit] .I hope the women gets her stuff back .

  • Thanks, growers.

  • That’s the ‘Hideaway Woods’ area. Lucky for the culprits that the local, neighborhood gun dealer fella who lives there didn’t get ahold of them. He might have been happy to get some late night target practice using his infrared scope!

  • Terrible experience – glad she is alright. 🙁

  • blame it on socal

  • Wow, I hope the victim recovers from this and is well.

    Pot leads to drug addiction, growing weed leads to undesirables and addicts all over the place who are looking for quick money and a quick fix. Tweakers and junkies are bad for everything we like about Humboldt County.

    Try the clean and sober lifestyle, it takes a while to get used to… Try making a living in a more sensible manner and in some, more farm-like environment, like Sutter County or Tulare.

    I don’t know – plenty of them seem to come from the East Coast, too – especially New Jersey. Too bad that beautiful Humboldt County has developed a reputation as a place to come to grow/deal drugs or rip off those who do. Wonder how that happened?

  • Gone are the good old days leaving your doors unlocked. An audible door alarm is a cheap worthwhile investment. When that sucker goes off in the middle of the night time to cock the Judge and I’m not talking Marilyn Miles.

  • How were they Hispanic is she had a bag over her head?

    Love knows no nationalities: likewise Hatred. Latinos, Whites, African Americans, & Asians, etc.. Democrats & Socialist Liberals or Republicans & alt-tea-liber-whatever can devote themselves to selfishness, abuse, Slenderman or Mammon, etc.. Or to goodwill, Live & Let Live, and/or charity.

    I’ve heard lamentable stories of terrible people in Humbolt Co who happen share my birth surname (no relation) and others from So CA (again, unrelated) who are models of humanity and inspire me to better my own self.

    That being said, F^*€ these @$$#*|€$. I hope they get instant Karma and a car stuck in a snowdrift on a bitter night.

    To everyone else, I say: Merry Christmas, all y’all!
