<quoted text>Amazing, just completely phuckin' amazing. Well, what this tells me is that the District Attorneys and Prosecutors for the City and County of San Francisco are okay with drug dealers shooting and killing ( or trying to kill), fellow neighorhood victims as long as they choose victims who do not have a "squeaky-clean" lifestyle. Had the victims of both of the Sassenberg brothers came from a good upper-class background and lived a 100% honest lifestyle, the brothers would not be out free today. In other words, if you're not a perfect law-abiding citizen from a good background, the city's District Attorney and Procescutors are okay with people like that being murdered and in a sense, the DA and Prosectors are siding with these murderers and protecting them! Get mad at our District Attorney and Assistant District Attorneys and the procescutors for our city, they have just as much "blood" on their hands as these cold-blooded murderers, or attempted murderers, that they let off the hook. Well, as long as our District Attorney and prosecutors continue to let these drug-dealin' murderers go free, the shootings and killings will happen again, and again, and again. You can thank the DA and prosecutors for these continuous murders.
So very well said!!! This is just bringing back all the anger and pain that lives in my heart. I am sickened by this and by the lack of response of the DA's office to MURDER and attempted murder. My heart is breaking all over again. My heart goes out to the latest victim of the Assenbergs. May you find justice much quicker than we have.

I don't even have words to express my outrage! I can't believe another scummy Sassenberg has done practically the same thing. UNREAL! What are the DA's and prosecutors getting paid for?

Fantasyland Speculators - Yeah, they oughta round up everyone w/ the last name Sassenberg, because they obviously might kill someone. That makes sense! I'm sure no-one's getting off the hook w/ out reasons. I don't know the specifics in either case, but didn't Dana take the gun from Richard & shoot him in "self defense"? How is that cold-blooded? As far as Rodney, my guess is he'll be doing time for it, but I wasn't there either.

No, the Assenbergs who have already used guns against others, Dana, Terry and Rodney, should pay for their crimes.

Wow, why all the faith in the SFPD and DA's office? Do you have some knowledge the rest of us don't?

If you don't know the sepcifics of either case, you should probably be quiet, huh?

If you believe that, there's a red bridge I'd like to sell you for a really good price.

MURDER is cold blooded. Shooting someone in the back is cold blooded!

Just to set the record straight.....RICHARD HAD NO GUN!!Dana's defense is that it was self defense, but you dont shoot someone in the back if its self defense??!! Dana was the one with the gun and he was the one who shot Richard. As far as Rodney's mess, I would suspect HE was the one with the gun as well. Sounds like a case of Monkey see, Monkey do.

Well, and if one brother (or 2 as the case may be) can get away with it, why not another. The lack of justice in Richie's case is making a horrible statement to murders and criminals every where.

Correction, A few sources told me that Terry had shot someone years ago too, and just like Dana and Rodney, he got off the hook too with the law. Was told it was up in Clear Lake about 10 years ago. Why the Assassinbergs continusly get away shooting anyone they feel like is beyond me. One person (Rich) has died so far in the hands of the Assassinbergs, and if the police do not do something soon, their surly will be another killing sonner or later.

I guess my statement was unclear. What I was getting at was, what was to stop Rodney, when two of his brothers have already shot people and got away with it. When I first googled the family after Rich's murder, something came up about Terry, but nothing seems to come up now.

And yes, another murder is sure to come if this family isn't stopped. It's sick!

It doesn't take a man to pull a trigger, a 10-year-old child can do that, even a 5 or 4 year-old-child for that matter. Any one of us (man, woman, old, young or a child) can pull a trigger and win that battle. No one can fight a bullet unless you have a bullet to throw back. Grown guys who need guns to win their battles are not men, they are what you call "cowards." A true man is a man who works an honest living (not a drug dealer or drug user), there for their children financially and physically, raise their children to become great citizens in society, pays for their children's college education, supports their entire family, do family activities, teach their children from right and wrong, and enjoys living a nice honest legal lifestyle. The notoriety that these three brothers have gain is sickening, and anyone looking up to their notoriety are really looking up to three cowards. Let's look up to real men that live in our neighborhood, the men who are honest working family men.

Im with you.One thing I learned n sf is that its ok to murder a person as long as your a drug dealer protecting your drugs, and its ok to attempt murder if your a crackhead tryin too kill another crackhead.it boils down to this: How duz one get away with murder? The answer is: It depends on WHO you kill. SF has a fukd up court system, it just aint right.

Hey Everyone! Do you want a license to kill?! Become a DOPE DEALER, and the city of SF will just slap you on the wrist---err, I mean "a tap" on the wrist! Hey Everyone! Want a license to shoot your fellow crackhead?! Become a crackhead yourself! The court system don't care, as long as we are just shooting and killin' each other, they don't mind!! This is the message that our city's criminal justice system have just given us in regard to the outcome of the two cases. Shame on our city's justice system, they don't give a shit, but heaven forbid if someone "important" got murdered or hurt!

These are men with a history of violence against family, why not kill/shoot friends too? Especially since they can get away with it.

DANA SASSENBERG MURDERED RICHARD BRYSON AND GOT AWAY WITH IT. NO COURT, JUDGE OR COP WILL EVER CONVINCE ANYONE OF ANYTHING ELSE!!!

Since there is NO JUSTICE FOR RICHIE, I hope that Dana lives everyday knowing what a horrible excuse of a man he is. May every waking moment be like a living hell for him for the rest of his days on this earth. And my sleep not bring peace or dreams but nightmares of the night he MURDERED my friend, my daughters' uncle, my best friend's brother, IN COLD BLOOD and then kicked his lifeless body as it lay there, helpless. You are a sick and worthless individual and I hope that haunts you and everyone you claim to care about.

You were charged with felony assault on a preganant woman, and also how many DUI's do you have? 1,2,3,4,5,6 who knows!! Oh yeah, let's not forget about how CPS took your kids, you were deemed an unfit mother because....oh yeah, you were smoking CRACK! How easy is it for everyone to judge people and comment on other people's lives. Move on and worry about your own life or better yet get a life!

And remember, Trish's criminal history isn't in question here, as she isn't the one who MURDERED SOMEONE AND KICKED HIS DYING BODY.
