  • Laytonville Rock


  • This has brian balke written all over it, the street thief of mckinleyville

  • Are the police not patroling at night anymore.its always after the fact. It would be nice to see a criminal caught in the act for once.

  • Sorry to hear about all these burglaries. I hope the culprit(s) are caught soon.

    Our next door neighbor’s home was recently burglarized twice. We installed video cameras after the first burglary, which helped the police catch the culprit, a convicted felon on probation for grand theft. But the suspect is now out of jail, after posting bail.

    We are scared he might be back again – a convicted felon with nothing to lose. He does not belong out here. But our laws allow him to be. This is not right, and needs to be changed.

  • Change current props. People bitch and moan but don’t do anything to change our laws. Criminals, druggies, rule the streets with knowledge that there’s no consequence, ever. If we want our streets, towns, back, let’s get to work changing the props. we voted on. ( in hopes of saving a buck) we are paying dearly now.

  • I hate thug punk thieves……….

    Use to know a few in my family.

    Their reasoning was:
    a) If you are so stupid to leave your belongings in harms way, then it is all on you.

    b) If you are so stupid to trust me, then it is all on you.

    c) If you get upset that I stole from you, oh well, so sad, too bad.

    Had to move three hundred miles away from them and cut of all contact in order to not be stolen from.

    Their mentality was that the world owed them, that they needed x, y, z, more than you, and crud, since you work and have more than me, then I should be able to have it.

    Pathetic broken souls.
