  • What is his age?

  • Honeydew Bridge Chump


    That bicycle light will get you Everytime!

    Least he didn’t go David Koresh!

  • Anybody know if he’s from New Jersey ? Seems like the type we attract around here with our black market and all rewarding the criminal minds with the best connections .

    • Nice try blaming all our issues on outsiders. He is local, born and raised. You can Google his family and find a litany of charges from most of them. Second generation career crimanal from HUMBOLDT!!!!!! Wake up, your precious locals are ruining this place just as much, if not more than transplants.

  • California wants to make it illegal in some cases and impossible for law abiding residents to buy guns and ammo! This Human POS IS RUNNING AROUND LOOSE because the same people who want to take our guns don’t have the room to put them behind bars. Yes Jerry Brown, Gavin Newsome, Kamila Harris don’t have the solution but they want to make something that isn’t a problem and create more criminals. When are people going to rise up and take our government back. This is the very reason you have a completely unstable Republican Candidate who will win the next election. I’m sick of thieves running around loose when they should be behind bars!!! What will it take for people to understand that Democratic liberal ideas while looking nice and being idealistic don’t work!! The entire California State govt needs to be impeached for what they are doing to our State! Throw them out and start over!!!

    • themissinglink, up vote.

      Sincerely, an ex Democrat.

    • They do not. They want background checks. Don’t be so afraid, no one is coming to take your guns.

      • Killary is coming for guns . That is a fact . She has admitted her language “common sense gun laws ” is a way of completely disarming America . Don’t be a fool . Try will write laws making 99% of weapons illegal . You already can’t have a double edged knife . Because everyone is a bunch of babies that can’t own anything that might be dangerous. But flame throwers are always legal so there’s that . …..

    • Patriotinwillits

      Take a deep breath and try to calm down. You can still cradle your gun in your lap. The big mean government isn’t going to take it from you. We still have the Bill of Rights. And no, that mean ol’ Donald Trump isn’t going to be President. And the mean man on the bicycle is going to go away for a long, long, time.

    • Thank you themissinglink so true they want to make criminals out of us one way or the other .

      • Actually travis is a very good kid at heart he’s got more love and respect than any of you are capable I’ve know him my whole life he is my nephue. Just because his family has a criminal past u shouldn’t judge this kid I guarantee if he seen one of you getting hurt he would not Walk away he would help

  • You hit the nail on the head! We live amongst sheep. Only problem is naturalized citizens, and wellfare recipients alone outnumber Republicans in our state. Our vote does nothing. Someday the libs will realize the errors of there ways. It will be to late to correct them by then though.

    • Dang libs.

      Shouldn’t we at least help them correct their spelling errors, Benbow? (Luckily, they don’t give spelling tests to welfare recipients.)

      It’s beginning to appear as if the naturalized citizens have no hope of learning the language proficiently if the conservative natives have such difficulty with its mastery.

    • Benbow, the irony of your statement is gut-wrenching. Try blaming individuals for a change, and take off the foil
      hat ,son.

    • Benbow, my grandparents were naturalized citizens, you dumb POS. Where the fug did you come from??? Mars? Unless you are 100% Native American, you are nothing more than a hypocrite, a really ignorant one. Trumpsters in the dumpster!

  • Attempt to stop him for having no bicycle light…
    Such brave men.

  • Themissinglink–Absolutely correct.

    Benbow–i agree.

    Scooter–you must be from NJ.

  • Looks like an evil Charlie Brown. “GOOD GRIEF”

  • It would help if politicians weren’t such hypocrites……Dianne Fienstein has had a gun in her purse since the People’s Temple murders. Sure doesn’t want us little people to have guns though.
    Pelosi sure looks like she wants one if she doesn’t already have one, after the DC leaks.
