  • This is what haooens to cherry pickers at some trim scenes , wow!

  • No frickin comment .

  • Now now no stealing

  • So, perhaps NOT a gunshot wound.

  • What???? How does a projectile equal a gunshot wound?
    Please lets try to buck the norm and keep the sensationalized headlines to a minimum.

    And guess what people, things happen to people who have nothing to do with pot!!! Id say, hmmm, oh this must be another undercover informant the cops hurt when she wasnt doing what they want.

    Look up the darwin awards, people do stupid sh*t all the time, and usually while theyre drunk. I think all police reports of any crime should list whether alcohol was involved. Id guess 85% of accidents of any kind involve alcohol and pills these days.

    Oh but please keep your blinders on and blame pot while all the other issues tear our society apart. Good luck with that

    • Typical lettuce rant, blame everything but the problem. Meanwhile cilantro is tearing apart society, roving dregs of red eyed fiends stealing and prostituting for their next fix.

      • I think u got the wrong drug….

        • No way lettuce is the worst, I only use medicinal meth for my job, which is breaking into cars at night, otherwise it’s hard to stay up all week, it also saves me a lot of money in dental work, and helps me scratch all the bugs out of my face, Try that with your devil weed.

    • Just a quick FYI about the Darwin Awards, they are ONLY awarded to those REMOVING themselves from the Gene Pool!!! So in other words they are ALWAYS awarded POSTHUMOUSLY!!!

    • A bullet is a projectile. There were “reports of a woman….with a gunshot wound.”

  • What???? How does a projectile equal a gunshot wound?
    Please lets try to buck the norm and keep the sensationalized headlines to a minimum.

  • shawn the fisherman

    Victim or perp? She part of a criminal enterprise? prolly.. Why not call the police her self? Cause she was up to no good.. prolly

    • Fear. Whether it was an intentional wound or accidental. Fear.

    • Naw…. minor gunshotwounds , clipped ears , n branded asses are everyday life in AP. No biggie just put a band aid on it n down some whiskey

  • Maybe someone handed her justice?yuck yuck

  • I picked her up today hitching up the Alderpoint Road, one arm in a cast and the other holding two shopping bags and a small dog on a leash.. She was clearly in pain and as we spoke I realized she had no place to go except back to Alderpoint where her boyfriend’s new girlfriend allegedly shot her sometime yesterday.

    Some would roll their eyes at this point and say oh…Alderpoint, and they would not be altogether wrong, but still….

    I dropped her off at the Alderpoint cut-off where she hopefully was able to catch another ride.
    Who knows where this poor child (she told me she’s 27) will end up. Evidently her father and brother came to see her in the hospital but left before she was released.

  • This didn’t even happen in humboldt, let alone alderpoint. Read the friggin post.

  • I don’t see what difference it makes whether she was shot in Humboldt or Trinity County.County and state lines are arbitrary borders decided by men, not nature. She was picked up in Alderpoint while wandering around with a gunshot wound.

    Enough said.

    • Those arbitrary borders decide who will investigate this case. For me alone, the information allows me to know that I should call Trinity County instead of Humboldt when I want information.

  • I was replying to the guest’s tone. Certainly if you’re investigating the case it would be appropriate to state which in county she was injured.

    • I was refering to all the negative comments about alderpoint not yours apologies if it sounded that way, not just on this but all the time, I really appreciate you helping her and taking the time letting us know what happened.
