  • Yeah. Drug deal went south. Dumbass shitbags!

    • Why would you assume it was a drug deal do you know facts about the situation or are you just speculating there’s been a serious problem with armed robbery and a lot of break-ins in our area don’t assume …..fortunately for her she got hurt luckily nobody was killed who knows who’s next and there was a break-in not very far away from my house the other day so really drugs you gotta be joking me unless you could prove fax’s your unbelievable

  • Ya that doesn’t sound shady at all

  • I call Bull@#$# right away. Definitely not Marijuana related at least.

  • Probably was hbc looking for the D lettuce or lettice shit I cant spell lettuce

  • No matter what the deal is people… Nobody deserve to be shot. Some of you have no respect when it comes to other peoples lives.. Have a heart and respect to family and friends..of the victim .keep you comments to yourself.

  • Well hope she gets better soon isn’t there a big Hillary rally tomorrow following today’s inaguration? Dope, robbery, mayhem and off to the Hillary rally? Picketers please be kind stay off of roadways tomorrow.

  • Where’s honeydew bridge chumps comment lol??? I think it was him !!! Devils lettuce I’m assuming lol !!!! Totally a robbery she’s lucky she aint dead.

  • These comments are not helpful. None of you are comedians or say anything positive. You should be ashamed of yourselves for writing ignorant remarks. Most people are basically good. Negative or dumb remarks are not good representation of the people of Humboldt. It’s embarrassing.

  • Concerned that Bawlz’ comments on two Jan 20th commentary threads (women shot in the leg and Bear river hijacking) cautioning participants in the scheduled women’s march (“big Hillary rally”) on Saturday to be carefull could be warnings or veiled threats? I hope this is not true. Women, and I’m sure everybody else, want to be respected and safe. The new president has not talked like that is how he thinks. You have to take seriously what people say, especially people who can have a lot of power over your life. It’s way bigger than only Hillary. I pass on to EPD and Sheriffs these comments as heads up for safety of all tomorrow. I hope I am overreacting.

  • Constant Vigilance

    I don’t doubt this story at all. I had a scary incident on the avenue involving two vehicles recently. I pulled further down the road and was approached again. I sped away both times but felt these two vehicles were up to no good.

  • Funny how you can assume thing’s and think that people are just gonna just drive up and shoot, ya right, but it was the couple fighting that live up felt but they should do something about him he think’s he can run around with guns and threaten people and act like he’s untouchable just like his dad but as well they need to stop dealing drugs down here in so hum!!!!!!

  • I know when people approach my vehicle with guns already blazing, my first reaction is to get out of the car and say ,”hello” to them.

  • It’s a good thing in California only criminals are allowed to carry guns on their person, or pretty much any other self defense weapon. Do you know, you can get in trouble if you even have a large tool in your vehicle Within Reach of the driver.

  • That bitch stole my cell phone couple nights before that I’m glad she’s not seriously hurt . But where is my cellphone bitch

  • I don’t know what happened but I hope she’s ok.
