Wow, really classy councilman we have here - a fine, upstanding representative - NOT.
Seems as though finally his temper and arrogance have put him in REAL trouble.

You MoCo voters are the people responsible for putting these kinds of losers in office. No wonder MoCo is in such a sorry state.

He already told her twice, probably didn't want to have to tell her a third time....

Daddy issue or not. He is one lucky man to have such a young tart. If I were in his shoes and had that I would be grateful for the daddy issues. Give me some of that!

I know he would never do anything to intentionally harm anyone. The media only tells us what they want us to know. Keep in mind that there are always two sides to a story and NO ONE except the two parties involved REALLY know what happened so you should all keep your ignorant judgements to yourself! Find a life that is worth living for yourself and get consumed in that not other peoples issues. No one is perfect.

Oh yeah, Cynthia, the bruises on her neck were not intentional - I'm sure he did not want to leave any marks as evidence.
I need to find a life? You need to get a clue!

Monterey Voter eh? I am sorry did YOU see any bruises? Do you know this man PERSONALLY to be able to make an accurate judgement or are you just going off like a typical ignorant person that doesn't REALLY know what happened. You know what the charges are but you don't know what actually happened. Have you ever thrown a ball or even a shoe when upset and accidentally broken a window or knocked over something unintentionally? Yeah, it happens and has happened to all of us at some point in our lives. Jeff would NEVER intentionally harm someone. Bruises. NO. There was nothing said about bruises. AND furthermore if you use your brain, if someone were to rip a necklace from around a neck, yes, there could be injuries but that by no way means that it was to cause harm to another. If the intention was to harm he wouldn't have given a rats ass about a necklace he would then have just given her a black eye.

Despite what you may think about him without even really knowing him on any level you need to step outside the box and realize that there is always more to the story than you are told by the media.

You obviously know him "very" well ... but then again, maybe not well enough. Or maybe you are his girlfriend. I don't care - it was serious enough for charges to be brought. Sorry, I should have said "visible injuries" on the neck rather than bruises. Big whoop of a difference - as if the girlfriend went to the police over something like a necklace pulled off a neck. There's more to the story and you know it.
And no, I can honestly say I don't throw and break things when I'm angry. Geesh!

Monterey Voter: your posts always seem to be so cynical. Tell me, what do you think about the concept "innocent until proven guilty"?

Cynthia (oops, this time it's "Monterey Long-timer")- You're right, I am very cynical about Haferman and his buddies. Regarding your comment about "always seem to be so cynical" - I haven't posted about much of anything other than reactions to Haferman's actions. So?

I think her question was about "innocent until proven guilty". And, just who are "Haferman and his buddies"?

BTW, "innocent until proven guilty" refers to a "in a court of law." Individual citizens have a right to their own opinions and conclusions.(Think OJ, for instance). He was found "not guilty" - he was not found "innocent" - and how many people, to this day, would declare him "innocent?"
By the way, the phrase "innocent until proven guilty" is not found anywhere in the Constitution. The closest to it is the Fifth Amendment which states that "No person shall be ... deprived of life, liberty, or property without due process of law ..."
