  • GGGGGZZZZZZZ what the hell a donation jar now.

  • He looks real familiar like he’s been on here before. County Sups, City Council and LE better figure something out soon. This is hitting an all time low. Humboldt is on the way to being “#1 Worst County to Live”.

  • Bigfoot doesn’t look so good these days.

  • Veterans friend

    When my partner died, 30 years ago, someone put up a donation jar…for me…except I never knew about it til years later when someone who put money in it asked me about it. What a scam. Slick thief

  • Catch n release What great revenue for humboldt. 😂

  • Geico, so easy this guy can do it

      I actually think that we should spend lots of money treating this fellow’s psycho-social disability.

      Bus ticket. One way. Phoenix. Or Banishment to Bakersfield.

      • How about a foreign country? Since we send billions to foreign counties he can go there and live.

        • Foreign counties? This seems like a foreign county to me, where’s our billion.

        • Unfortunately, you can’t legally leave the USA w/o a passport any longer.
          Since passports aren’t issued to felons they become a political prisoner of sorts. Pretty sad.
          Besides the fact that very few countries (if any) would want our felonious, we make it nearly impossible for them to leave.

      • Knew someone who moved to Bakersfield from upstate NY and didn’t know it was a banishment to go there…now that it’s like the surface of the sun there, she knows!
