This lowlife piece of reeking effluent needs to be away for a long time. But he will likely be put on probation and provided "treatment" because he had a unhappy childhood and, therefore, is not responsible for what he does as an adult. It's nuts. He killed the victim here. They need to bring back assembly-line frontal lobotomies for this type of scum.

Let me answer. Not many blacks walking around with blond hair and blue eyes. Would the persons skin color have made the beating better or worse for the victim?

Don't know. If the victim were black and the suspect white, would that make it any different? The unconstitutional (IMO) hate crimes laws advocates seem to think so.

To my way of thinking, both scenarios are equally egregious. Racists come in all colors, and most crime is related to greed, selfishness, and lack of respect for other people. Maybe we should enact laws to counter those qualities or lack thereof and stop focusing on skin color.

Did anybody notice that no weapons were used but the suspect(sic)is charged with assault with a deadly weapon.

No discription of the suspect is given so how can anybody say he was black,white or purple.Maybe most of the previous posters should actually read the article.

You can thank California's wonderful concealed carry laws. Up here, we enjoy the 2nd amendment rightsestablished by our founding fathers Oregon is a "shall issue" state, in which you need only demonstrate that you are not a felon and can observe certain safety practices to be issued a carry permit. It is one of the reasons this 63-year-old moved from California a decade ago, after being confronted by a knife-wielding looney obviously high on something, in broad daylight, on a busy street. Luckily, I survived that little event. Looks like this poor gentleman will survive, but be forever scarred by the event. His attacker will live to prey on others, too. Pity.

Who knows what went down. I would not so quick to assume that he is a gentleman. There are plenty of whacked out 60 year olds too.

Across the country jails are over flowing and paroles are let out early while liberal judges give light sentences. Time to outsource all the prisons to Mexico. Mexico can hire back all the illegals here and do it at a lower cost. Break the prison unions up here in CA.

Wow! My husband and I were considering moving to Sausalito. I'm black and he is white. I wonder how that's going to go over? We have heard from several people who have visited Sausalito over the years that it is a very nice place to live. It seems as if things get a little heated when it comes to race. Crime is crime and a human life is a human life regardless of race, religion, color, etc. It just shouldn't happen.
