It looks like Cody Angus Baker may be coming home sooner than expected.

And we wonder why we have so many DUI's...? This guy should serve his time. With a prior, he knew what was up and gets no sympathy from me. He killed people for being a fool and we're playing one now. Why must we be so damn politically correct with these types? Spare us, not him.

i believe all the kids had been drinking, i think he just made a wrong choice, as he felt he had more experience driving drunk, i had always felt empathy in this case, any of those kids could have been driving. Cops can kill, and get off with no charges, many times, when they have also made poor judgement calls, i belive some mercy and grace was needed in this case.

None of you people get it.

Judges and District Attorneys are elected by the people.

They don't get where they are based upon their comptetence. They get in their position by a popularity contest.

Now think about that and think about the DA in Humboldt County and some of the judges the people have elected to the bench.

And teacher, get a clue.

Who writes the laws? Lawyers.

And who prosecutes the criminals? Lawyers.

What is one of the greatest sources of income?

Drug and alcohol addiction.

The attorneys want this guy back out on the streests as soon as possible.

He's a money making macine.

Especially for the lawyers working for "the people."

And none of them will get it. Not until the likes of Cody Baker kills 1 (or 4) of their loved ones. And they get the phone call in the middle of the night. and they have to face life without their loved ones. Then they'll get why repeat offenders should be locked away to protect their children and grandchildren and friends and neighbors.
Cody Baker continues to to bring shame to his family and his community by not serving restitution hanus crime.

Cody will be out as the legal MJ laws are passed, there is a need for motivational speakers for the schools, and the graves of his dead are smooth. He will be welcomed into the Drug Community. Remember that he himself considered that he himself was the competent authority on his ability to drive while drunk/stoned, because he was accustomed to being in that condition. This is the new legal precedent being promoted by our lawyers, judges, and lawmakers. Good Luck everyone.

Yes, he made the wrong CHOICE! That's why he is in JAIL.
If he can't make the right CHOICE he can't be trusted in society.
Everyone is in jail because of the CHOICES they made.
GET IT?

He CHOSE to drive drunk. Again. With a carload of kids. He can't be among us.

Apparently you don't get it.

Do you every dive Myrtle Avenue from Freshwater into Eureka?

Have you ever driven by that concrete retaining wall with the shrine to a 16 year old girl named Emily?

She was killed when a guy from Whitchepec left the Watch and Wager drunk and stoned. He tried to pass someone on that stretch of road, which is illegal because of the double stripe. He hit Emily Vance's little pick-up truck head-on killing her instantly.

Guess what. Not one local judge wanted to pass his sentence.

Why?

Because the most they could sentence him was to an involuntary manslaughter charge that carried a sentence of TEN MONTHS.

Every single local judge bowed out of the sentencing hearing. They all waited for a traveling judge to sit in on the case.

See, judges are just as much politicians except they only carry out the law and not write the law.

We have a system of justice that has been established by the most corrupt, unethical profession on the planet.

You get the justice you deserve because you aloow this tribe of crooks to control the justice system.

Talk about job security at the expense of the public's security.

I can't wait to have him run me over after his "Welcome Home" beer bash, at Ruth Lake of course!

Maybe we should just line up a row of little kids for him to mow down so he doesn't have to waste time looking for victims.

What a travesty!

Lois, please go away to some AA meeting until you can think of something else to say. The stress of constantly encountering your simple-minded, unimaginative comment is forcing me to drink heavily.

To reader:

Lawyers don't write laws. The Legislature does - most of whom are not lawyers, although they do (as you ascribe to judges and DAs) get their position through a popularity contest.

Who needs to get a clue?

And since some lib SF judge has ordered prisons semi emptied Cody will do even less time. If the folks in Weaverville had not played politics with this this would have been settled way back.

I feel bad for Diamond. He's not getting any justice here. He will possibly run into this low-life in about a year. Not to mention the deceased's relatives.
