Paul Mendoza is finally right about something -- we should check the immigration status of ALLRead More crooks & suspects. That may sound silly but it's not. When we check all of them we can't be accused of "racism" or "profiling" -- AND we can find out exactly how much crime immigrants cause. It's no secret that immigrants (& illegal aliens) cause a lot of crime, but as it stands now immigrant crime statistics are deliberately hard to come by -- thanks to the cynical subterfuge of the open-borders lobby.

Pat Kittle is a disgusting racist troll who has targeted me in the past for my Basque heritage. OfRead More course he wants to ask white people their immigration status because it provides cover for his targeting of Latinos. You are the only illegal alien I see around here, Kittle. Please deport yourself.

paul mendoza -- If immigrants (& illegal aliens) don't commit a lot of crime you should want usRead More to verify that -- not cover it up. You obviously resent your bluff being called. Isn't that just too bad??

Fences of all sorts have never stopped determined intruders. To assist in stopping intruders, sensorRead More pads embedded at all fence perimeters (very expensive) and quick action response guards posted in close proximity at several nearby posts (very,very expensive) would be required. There is no such thing as perfect security. For wheel wells, perhaps an inexpensive sensor could be installed.

The information posted about that night is inaccurate, and I'm not sure if its deliberate or not.Read More Anybody can look up a 1982 calendar online and see September 4th 1982 was a Saturday night. It was Labor Day weekend just before the school year started. Now, I can't say for sure whether there was a Golfland in 1982, but where Golfland is today at Wolfe and ECR (El Camino Real) did not exist. It was the Woolworth Garden Center at that time. The report I read in the paper stated a driver delivering to Woolworth Garden Center found her. Not a year goes by that I don't think about Karen, especially in September. I remember the night I heard the news. I had just gotten home from camping at Pinnacles with my mom, step-dad, sister, and her friend who lived next door to us. When we got home, my next door neighbor called me and asked what Karen's last name was. When I told her Karen's name, she told me she had been murdered. She then brought over the newspaper for me to read the story. Karen and I dated that previous school year. Her murder was part of my desire to become a police officer. While I realize the colder the trail goes, the harder it is to find witnesses and evidence...I will never lose hope that her killer(s) will be brought to justice. And if I'm able to, I will be in that courtroom to see the face of the animal(s) that took such a wonderful life away from her family and friends. She will always have a place in my heart.
