TCSO press release



  • Horrible. Two young lives wasted.

  • Don’t make advances to someone else’s squeeze.

  • Damn. Sad.
    Keep in mind he is a juvenile. Treat him accordingly. No matter what he has done, there is time for him to grow and become a much better person.

    Was the suspect an attendee at the house party in Arcata where Josiah exited this life?

  • This is another sad ending to a life lived on the fringes of society.

    I knew the victim as an 8 year old child and only met again last summer. We were neighbors when he was a kid. I was in high school. I was probably his best friend at the time. Few days went by that he didn’t knock on my door looking for someone to throw a baseball around with, or someone to kick a ball to, or play hide and seek with. Sometimes I would open the door. Sometimes I wouldn’t.

    I was not surprised to see how he turned out. I met him again when I was at a local swimming hole with a friend last summer. “That’s your old neighbor Nate” she said. It took a minute, but I aged his face and went through the list of neighbors I have had in my life.

    “Oh yeah,” The moment of recognition, “Hi Nate, How’s your mom?”

    She was fine. They didn’t talk much, but she was good. He was still friendly. He was always friendly. Perhaps too friendly.

    He bummed a beer from me. We parted ways. And now he’s dead.

    I am not a psychologist, but I do know that from childhood to adulthood Nate lacked some social skills. The problem is, he was too social, too trusting, too eager to be everyone’s friend. And that probably led to his death.

  • S shy does “Keep on Dancing” get to gloat about the prospect of buggering in prison and I don`t? Don`t we rednecks count?
