okay, excuse us, I guess since that cop was doing justice it must be great? I'm guessing that you are a piller of some community? Tell us, what have you done? And i'm sure the Modesto cop that raped the prostitute was justified since she wasn't a piller of any community? Do you really want the cops to decide justice in our communities? Tell us how would you feel if one of your perfect kids was accidentally shot or ran over by one of these great cops?

I guess the gangs do it all the time, and the cops are just another gang.

We don't really know for sure what went through Mehserle's mind the instant he pulled the gun instead of the Taser. He has to live with what he did no matter how much time he serves. A longer sentence will not change or fix anything--it would just be revenge and that's not what justice is supposed to be about.
And who say's what justice is and what it's not, you think this guy has received justice by doing two years with 50% reduction in time for good behavior? He was seen on video methodically pulling his pistol, aiming and then murdering the man in handcuffs. He deserves the death penalty for that, not 1 yr in prison.

May 22, 2013 - a news helicopter has been hovering for about an hour over the dig area.

Glendora, California 1978 a 24 year old lady went missing, now the LA County Sheriffs Department is on the job and digging up a back yard in the city of Glendora, California.

The person who reported her missing was her husband, the house has been sold three times since then.

Glad to see some real police department work is being carried out by them on Essex Street in the 500 block.

More insider information to follow.
