  • Looks friendly enough.

  • Why would they set any bail at all?

    • Prison reform. Theae nice pepple just need another chance. They are good people and want to do the rifht thing but after a lifetime of being put down by the man they just dont know any better

  • looks like ol’ Jeremiah is good with a knife. 3 years ago he stuck someone else — just punched him full of holes. Apparently he survived. This was by a bar in Calpella.

    I`ve often wondered how these guys sharpen their knife. Getting a really fine edge is a real skill that takes some effort to learn. Do they just get a file at Wal-Mart, give the blade a few strokes and call it good?

    • All he needs is a good drop or clip point and he’s in. And out. And in and out. Edge could be as dull as a deer antler and his target is still well ventilated.

  • Well he looks really happy. Three Hots and a clot there you go boy your life is made! And your mom is so proud cuz now she don’t got to deal with nobody. Holy shit that’s is morally disgusting on the even the worst of days
    Go Luna go Luna go Luna go the puppet master of his own shitshow!

  • Breakin the law on Law Street.

  • Will be sad though for those children he is tutoring in math and English. And the work he does with the elderly. I think he was ringing the Salvation Army bell in front of the Ross store in Ukiah last Christmas. Ho Ho Ho. He will be missed.
