  • What’s with the semi automatic part? New kaliforina law?

  • I think releasing him at 90 sounds just right

    • Money for nothing....taxes are free

      That will cost California taxpayers $4,056,000 to house him, one person, at today’s costs. That cost WILL go up in the future. At the rate we incarcerate offenders Californians will pay 30% or more of their wages in taxes. If you add up law enforcement, the court system and the cost of prisons nearly half of California’s budget is spent. There has got to be a better way………………….

  • I wonder what his co defendant ms steele is facing time wise.?

  • GOOD riddance to BAD rubbish!!!!

  • Nice! the needle might have saved some $$$(probably not) but a good enough sentence for gov work. Good job.

  • The shitty thing is, it hurts the families more than the convicted.

  • Once you end someone’s life,your life ends!!!

  • Hmmmmm I can’t talk about “breast tattoo’s” eh. Wow. Not PC I suppose, might hurt this guys feelings. Sorry kym

  • Say goodbye to everything he held dearly in life. Ordering a pizza, drinking a cold beer, going to the beach, warmth of another person, going to the movies, freedom, all for the opportunity to make a quick dollar. He will have the rest of his life to think about that.

  • Still have a hard time understanding the logic behind the semi auto . But hey i guess practicial knowledge and understanding of things dont count when pushing a adgenda while writing laws.

    • Semi autos are better then revolvers…😁 O boy, just full of jokes today!

      • Whoops misread “semi” auto law. Threatening a person with a” generic” gun such as a revolver,pump shotgun or hunting rifle is punishable by 6 months to a year in jail Using a “assault ” weapon ( ok now Californians, look how dumb that looks….assault weapon,aren’t they all!) such as a semi auto, 50 BMG or grenade launcher is punishable by two to twelve years in prison. All rim fire rifles such as automatic 22’s are not “assault ” weapons. I guess jerry brown believes that a 50 round drum of 22 rounds won’t kill people!

  • Your mommas so fat that when she went down the greeting card isle she left hallmarks🤣 (Just made that up)
