    Oh that’s the wrong one? I must have 2 left feet….

    Courtesy transport to blue lake, W T F! As if they were innocent or something, they were gulty by association. Enough drugs for all four to party on, multiple hidden guns… Shitty job L.E.O.’s.

  • Both were charged with a felony, and both were released at 9:45 this morning. Pick up a couple more guns and another gram of meth, and see you all again here later!!! Hop on the Humboldt criminal merry-go-round.

    Marijuana outlaw culture gives ideas to youth that their actions have no backlash.

    Dope grower culture is solely to blame for these misguided children.

    If I were the judge, I’d make them rip out 50,000 marijuana plants, and piss test clean the whole way to have this hidden from public record.

    Community Service Sentences should encompass eradicating marijuana and tearing down grower operating bases.

    This will never be a place to raise children until the last grower leaves.

    Go back to your slums, growers get out!

  • Blaming the pot buisness for illogical decisions of youth is ridiculous.

  • Who were the other 2? Sounds like they’re caseing places to rob. Home owners beware. Lock and load
