There should be special courts for psych cases just as there are special courts for financial,Read More maritime, juvenile, family and other specific types. This does not mean getting off with any difference in time, but it would mean a more accurate routing and disposition of the individuals. In many cases people do not want to change and would rather be sent to standard jails eventually released and still a danger to society.

Some people do not have even an ember of empathy and need more separation from others and extendedRead More treatment, maybe life long, this may or may not be a case. And, many people just do not have a sense of proportionate response. No matter how trivial the response is irrationally disproportionate.

This is not local news. Why is this article here?
Laurel Anderson April 18, 2014 at 07:09 am
Nothing Is local on here anymore. Terrible decision to drop local editors for this junk no one caresRead More about. I used to love how we knew everything going on around here from the patch. Now nothing...horrible, horrible decision! !!! I keep hoping someone starts their own patch type of thing. I will be dropping this one.

And we don't get any local news. Oxford Patch did not report the burglary's in Oxford.

what else would you expect from this ugly fat loser monkey she should be shot right away- no jailRead More time but dead within 10 minutes of verdict- you wonder why there is so much racism- well here is a prime example of why there is all of it in this country- that monkey is to fat to swing in the trees
L.B. April 18, 2014 at 07:18 am
I agree with the Judge completely

Fat & ugly, she deserved to be locked up for that alone.

Every time I see a SSF PD officer, I think he or she is coming to pull me over on an imaginary, fakeRead More "enforcement" stop, as it's called in the industry. Lawyers and cops are one and the same--they lie for a living. That is not up for debate--it is fact! See the Tallahassee PD, FSU, Jameis Winston, etc...too many people covering their own hides! If it were not the cold, hard truth, it would be the movie-of-the-week!

Thank You Law enforcement Officers. I appreciate your stepped up efforts. Jim

Right and going by the fine which was 589 times the cost of the soda, BP, that did so much damage toRead More the Gulf should be fined .... 2Billion X 589 .... right, not in the Corporate States of America. That isn't going to happen. How about we apply that same fine to Wall Street .. hell they damn near wrecked the world's economy and have you seen any fines near 589 times the damage done? Direct your ire to the right people ...

Stealing is stealing and it costs all of us. People who eat the grapes at the grocery store withoutRead More paying for them, are stealing! Every item stolen adds up to added costs to everyone. I would have told this person to pay up first before the fine but the fine is always going to be more than the item. The fine is prevent the person from doing it again. Parking in my city overnight on the street used to be a $5 fine and so many people did. They have since raised the fines. This winter those overnight cars caused a lot of problems. They could not remove the snow with cars on the street. People don't think of the consequences before doing something wrong. Yes, people do things that are wrong but why does this it right? The 89 cents is really cheap for a soda so it makes sense that they don't allow refills for free. I have seen people using soda machines with their own cups. It ends up costing me for being honest. Eat me!
carrie April 18, 2014 at 08:06 am
This is ridiculous. Let the guy pay on site. Waste of tax payers money. Theft is wrong, but this forRead More some reason seems different as many restaurants do give free refills.

Palomar Parkman April 17, 2014 at 11:10 am
I heard it was a homeless man that was in the park often and slept there at night. I also heardRead More that another homeless man was attacked in Red Morton a few days earlier but was able to fend off the attackers. It is a sad commentary on our community if this is true.
Corinne Kason April 17, 2014 at 11:42 am
That's true Palomar. The poor fellow was a kind gentle soul - he used to be a teacher - he wasRead More beaten by young thugs, the same ones I imagine who beat his friend a few days earlier. I only hope the police follow up thoroughly to find he horrible people who did this.
Palomar Parkman April 17, 2014 at 12:39 pm
Homelessness is an unfortunate and heart wrenching part of our society. Almost all homeless areRead More harmless lost souls. It is a sick person (or people) that would do such a thing. I also hope they will find those people and lock them up for a long time.
Sea April 16, 2014 at 07:16 pm
So if you are the Government Affairs Director for the San Mateo County Association of REALTORS®,Read More I'm sure you have heard the term "Prescriptive Easement" maybe that applies here. I guess this guy thought he had bought his own land that included a free public beach all for himself since no one can access it anymore and you seem to think that's alright? What I found was that there are four (4) elements to a prescriptive easement in California: 1.) The use of land must be open and notorious; 2.) Continue and be uninterrupted for a period of at least five (5) years (occasional use could establish the prescriptive use right for the same frequency, e.g., on weekends); 3.) Be adverse; and 4.) Be subject to a claim of right (i.e., not consented to). If I'm not mistaken, this path to this beach has been in use for DECADES. I'm not sure but I'd guess you won't find much support here on the patch for this billionaire client but I could be wrong. Time will tell. There is an article "Surfers sue over blocked beach access" at sfgate dot com that has some great photos - of course the property is held by a LLC. "Martin's Beach LLC" I only hope the coastal commission gets it right on this one.
Mark Fassett April 17, 2014 at 12:31 am
Give me a break. The coast doesn't belong to anyone below the surf line, and people have the rightRead More to enjoy the beach. Much like idiots like David Gefen who don't want to provide access to the unwashed masses... sorry, the law says otherwise.
Paul Stewart April 17, 2014 at 08:35 am
@Prescriptive Easement... a good explanation and no one's going to shed any tears for the owner butRead More (as you alluded) it is the greater issue of private property rights at play. I doubt the Coastal Commission will get it right, however as their history of protecting property owners is not, shall we say, stellar. @Mark Fassett. You are correct as long as trespassing is not involved. That's the law... trespass and one breaks the law. Pretty straightforward... but this will ultimately be decided by the courts.

Horses should not be nose to exhaust pipe on city streets. That is cruelty and the horse had hadRead More enough.
kathleen macmurray April 17, 2014 at 05:46 am
A horse and carriage ride in a park, fine. But not on busy, crowded city streets. It's cruel to theRead More horse and dangerous to everyone else. I'm with the NYC mayor on this one.
Sheila April 17, 2014 at 05:16 pm
Poor horse. I hope someone equine rescue unit will relieve him from his present circumstances andRead More either give him a good home or find him one.

The price of pork can also go up because the price of beef is up. It's not just weather andRead More disease, it's also cost of fuel.

With prices rising in all industries, I call it the disease of liberal Democrats! And it is theRead More disease that will wipe out civilization!

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!
