  • Wow here we go again.seems like almost every day there is a violent gun crime. I hope he survives the wounds due to gun fire.best wishes to the victim.

  • Chopper about to land in Miranda. I just saw it over my house.

  • Why did they cancel air ambulance,besides the fact it’s expensive? I’m hoping for the best

  • When did Humboldt become so violent. Just as bad as the big city now.

    • I know isn’t it. I grew up here. My opinion is california laws becoming so lenient on crime. Out of state people come here knowing they don’t get in trouble.

      • People have no fear of the humboldt county courts. Why should they?

        • So true!! Look at how Mendocino cops handled the Settler murder. They tracked down 8 suspect in numerous states and Mexico within months. They didn’t even have a real name for one of the suspects in the beginning. If they had killed him in Humboldt all 8 would be sitting pretty somewhere with Humboldt cops being like “we just don’t have enough evidence, der….”

          • True. I have lived the last 30 years in both counties, sometimes back and forth commuting and I pay attention to crime and courts. Humboldt law enforcement is lax at best. Humboldt has always allowed weed growers (and the associated criminal activity) to operate much more openly than Mendocino. Humboldt in Gallegos years then openly encouraged people/criminals to arrive and blow up grow scenes. Humboldt law enforcement has even turned a blind eye to murders ((ex. Christie in Fieldbrook, Trailer Park dude in Arcata) because they are lazy or careless. Mendocino sucks more for growing weed but at least violent criminals get apprehended. You get what you deserve Humboldt!

      • Yes, Indeed. That paired with psuedo legal grey market rushers. It is a bad mix.

      • Duhhh, all over quick cash

    • You need to read the reports. Humbolt is second to Oakland, and that’s the truth

    • fakeemail@gmail.com

      much worse.

  • The crime follows the money, unfortunately. Where’s there’s growers there’s money and all that comes with it.

    • Honeydew Bridge C.H.U.M.P.

      The Devil’s Lettuce spreads seeds and clones that root crime.

      It’s obvious what is to blame, lax law enforcement allowing Devil’s Lettuce to take root and spread it’s evil seeds.

      • Devil’s Lettuce??? HELL NO!!! My money is on some Bad Acid, that you took & NEVER came down from the Bad Trip!!!! How else could someone be so over the top totally tweeking stark staring Batsh!t CRAZY!!!!

      • Seems perfectly obvious doesn’t it? Been here for 3 decades now, it all started going to shit with “medical” marijuana. Hope Trump can put the genie back in the bottle.

        • Honeydew Bridge C.H.U.M.P.

          I’m hopeful that he will simply do just that.

          Devil’s Lettuce has destroyed what many held so dear.

          The arrogance of the lettuce heads has escalated to a level unseen before.

          Hopefully Trump can deploy a biological weapon that attacks The Devil’s Lettuce so it can no longer grow.

          Using a bioweapon on The Devil’s Lettuce is much easier than having to chase down the grow/terror groupings, and levies an equal punishment to them all.

          The Triangle won’t be a place to raise children until The Devil’s Lettuce is wiped from all areas and is only looked at as a dark age in history books.

          I await the new dawn, when Devil’s Lettuce is a distant memory and people may live in harmony without grower groupings spreading terror through the hills.

    • God will you people shut it already!!! Guess what,non-growers have guns too. What makes you think theres pot involved and not the true dangerous drugs like heroin and meth? Domestic dispute? Drunk guys getting in a fight? Hunting accident?

      Really,please post to prove your point, how many deaths and shootings in the last 6 months were solely related to pot?? Very few if any, do some research.
      Trust me, the big money is not in pot anymore. Choosing to blame folks like this takes away from the more serious issues in our county. The switch of cartels from pot to poppy fields, the hundreds of meth labs, etc etc.

      For that matter how do we know it wasnt an accidental self inflicted gunshot wound?
      Really if you need to lump folks together under the title “growers” then please leave the county. It helps no one and is childish.
      How about i say everyone who blames growers is a meth head?

      • As paranoid as the C.H.U.M.P. is it would NOT surprise me even this much to find out he IS a Meth Head!!!

        • He isn’t a meth head you dumbass he’s a good dude.maybe you should know what your talking about before you say stupid stuff on the internet

      • He’ll stop writing stupid shit when he stops getting a rise out of people. Stop responding and feeding his BS. He clearly has mental health issues, there’s nothing left do but wish him the best and ignore his comments.

        • Excellent advise I keep alllowing him to drag me down to his level I need to be smart enough to resist the temptation to answer back in kind!!! I need to learn to ignore the idiot as you said!!! Thanx for the insight!!!

        • If I see his name on one, I skip it. I don’t know what he said, and it’s nice that way.

          You said something about bein dragged down. I think Mark Twain said it best:
          “Never argue with stupid people on the Internet. They will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.” (He was ahead of his time, as you can see).
          Not that anyone here is stupid, but the pointlessness of arguing is valid.

      • fakeemail@gmail.com You wouldn’t like it, I’d just lay there, ask my wife she’ll be glad to tell you!!! ;op

      • Definitely hunting accident, those happen all the time , especially when it’s not hunting season, fast cash is what I’m talking about, its all over in those hills , cops are hours away , seems to be the new get rich game , like it or not , it’s here for awhile

    • Shetland Townsand

      It’s my understanding that meth has bèen responsible for all the crap that has made Humboldt County, Arcata specifically, so dangerous, not pot!

  • “Devil’s Lettuce”…. LOL🤣

    • Honeydew Bridge C.H.U.M.P.

      I will post for Kym, so she may conserve her energy and get well….


      • Whom pray tell are you saying Don’t Encourage Him about??? Talking about yourself in 3rd person again are you???!!!! Severe signs of Mental Imbalance to talk of oneself in the 3rd person ALL the time!!!!

        • Honeydew Bridge C.H.U.M.P.

          Answering your own questions shows it’s long been time to get off the bong life.

          The Devil’s Lettuce is sprouting in your soul, controls your actions, and leads you down the course toward the rocks, where it will break you like all the other lost ships that came before your time.

          Seek help, drugs are bad.

  • Im sure it nothing to do with drugs, right?

  • Blame the growers. And conveniently leave out that its the growers who mostly get attacked and robbed by desperate schmucks on meth. The growers may go over board ( anyone from around here knows that duh) but mostly they arent the ones committing violent crimes around here. Quit with your devils lettuce nonsense .

  • diabolical greenery

    I gots to love that spicy devil’s lettuce mix from trader joes!

  • Violence is what happens when you let liberals and democrats take over your state. Teach your kids to cower to bullies and hold nobody accountable for their actions. If you think it’s bad now just wait till it becomes a sanctuary. This is when there will be the possibility of a war for ca cause I’m not giving up my land for some illegals and I’m sure there are plenty of fellow natives that feel the same.

  • Why doesn’t chump move to Canada or something. Because pot is and has and will be here .I was born in garberville ,and raise out on the flat in 19 60 ,so ive seen it all . With that being said The chump is beating a dead horse repeatedly.Maybe he should move on since he lives smack dab in the middle of lettuce land ground zero .

  • I bet Mr chump has a huge grow .going on he probably been a Mary Jane grower .for decades.

  • Mogtx. You’re the first responder on both sides for pretty much everything don’t you have anything better to do you talk your s**t I don’t agree with you but you’re the first on every subject don’t you have something to do During the day or night
