  • Alt Right For Life

    Let’s hope prison gets him the help and haircut he needs.

    62 and going to jail is bad news, he earned it by drugs and guns he isn’t allowed to have, if convicted.

    Sad to think how happy his parents were when he was in diapers and crawling on the floor, but look at what marijuana and meth do.

    We all need to pray that drug users either repent to God, or go to jail for years of hard labor.

    • Repent to God eh? Does that mean you can do it again? As long as you repent? Sounds like an excuse to do fucked up behavior, then be “forgiven” my a mythical “God”. Rape , pillage, and do drugs…. as long as you repent on your death bed, it’s all good. How about just send em straight to Hell ( prison) instead?

    • Faith-based rehab programs have a pretty poor success rate.

    • Maybe he’s finally ready for “three hots and a cot.” You never know…

  • I’m certain that the Romans said the same thing of Christ.

  • The Entropic Empath

    ILLEGAL CAMPING? That’s the last straw!

    Throw the book, the whole book at this reprehensible senior reprobate!

    I predict prison will rehabilitate him…

  • “Open container of marijuana” . So just what is a closed container?

  • If he was camping in his vehicle wouldnt it technically be his residence? So the open container wouldn’t apply? Same with a loaded firearm, you know, if he wasn’t a felon and all. Not a expert just saying I think different laws apply

  • State Parks, another arm of the State Franchise Tax Board. Our contemporary SS.

  • True dat on the new SS troops. Had one of them follow me up private drive for no seat belt… Not a county road anywhere for a mile or more. Ticket me he did….

    • The law is enforced on non county roads . Wear your seat belt .

    • You only wear your seatbelt when you have to? There was another dude like that up by Ruth Lake a few weeks ago, didn’t end well for him. Always wear it

  • another potentially dangerous meth head in the system good work law enforcement!!!
    to bad Obama did not take his guns.

  • NASCAR John Muir.
    If he didn’t shave his chin, I’d guess him for a so-hum back to the lander..
    To much ammo though. Deport back to Oregon

  • A little meth sucks.

  • There could of ended up being a much more serious crime with those stolen guns like robbery and murder who knows he doesn’t seem to be a very smart person shooting stolen firearms in a state park .

  • There is no way a pit bull owner will ever believe their dog is dangerous even if one killed their child or any relative. First and last comment.
