Now they hang out in homeless camps and on the railroad tracks and kick each other to death. Reeves had already killed someone about twenty years ago.

Now I hunt elk, catch trout out of the rivers and streams and am in total awe and harmony with nature.. And I'm an ex-tweeker. Imagine that while I grill the backstrap of my 6x6 bull tonight.

It is a sad state of affairs, when brother kills brother, as close as a block or two from the court house, down town Ukiah.
Two weeks before the murder Pinola was running around threatening everyone he could, he was out of controle and it is suspected by the nieghbors with meth as well
Reveses was one of the walking dead a zombie, the last I saw of him he was trying to sell me a broken calculator for 5 bucks,so he could buy a beer, even if he was on parol and had a 5-b that was just a few weeks before the murder, to say he was desperate would be an understatment. Since then up till now the tracks have been the sight and subject for numerous stabbings, beatings and fights, from what I have heard there was of a 14 year old girl that was also raped.
It upsets me to see the poor and disadvatantaged loosing there belongings when law enforcement does a sweep through the homeless camps but as we can well see, this is not exactly Yogi the bear and boo boo. And that a menacing aspect looms upon the tracks and other camps. and that law enforcement has the duty to see that all citizens are protected! true as it may be with the homeless that not all of them are bad people,the same can be said for law enforcement. Until we find a remedy to how to deal with the homeless issue we will allways have the need to push and push back!
They have since removed the the tanker were the murder took place, and with the white cross and red ribbon went with it, Gerald Knight was a well love man on the tracks and he will not be forgotten.

The deceased was a floating low intensity crime wave. He was always the nucleus for a pack of drunken losers and low lifes. He did not deserve his fate, but his lifestyle left him open to it. There should not be any permanent camps allowed. They are crime centers of drug abuse and sexual and physical violence. We see by the results that they are not good even for the bums who live there. Same way with giving the bums money. You think you are being kind, but you are just helping to kill them. If you want to help give money to the shelter, plowshares of the community center that provide servcices instead of just enabling the next drink or drug.

I would like to arguee with you but I cant!
But the fact is that they are not going away anytime soon, the shelter is just not big enough, and alott of them are to hostil to even stay there!
I am just trying to show some compassion toward the many that are on the streets that should be in mental institutions!
Police shall go through and clean the mess up, and they will return
essentially giving them maid service!
What to do?
Once a site was given to them at lake mendocino, and what happend they start fighting and blow that oppertunity off!
Just short of a barn and sheep dip with washable cement floors, a dairy would be just fine! Where are these people going to go!
Out of curiosity I spent some time with this crowd, kind of like the Jayn Godall of the homless, and let me tell you we have some troubled minds out there, as well as some misguided mentaly ill good people, I regret the prolonged incident for it nearly claimed my sanity just trying to relate to this segment of society.
but let me tell you that they are no more perverse than the wealthy society circles of New York or San Francisco, kind of like the tabloid readings of the perverted movie stars.
It has come to conclusion that with out structure the human mind shall deviat with or with out money, what is the diffrence between a bum on a corner or a trust fund baby on a corner, the bum isnt waiting for his driver, and that is about it! Both shall if left to their own vices, shall pervert from the society norms,

Gerald Knight was my student at Mendocino College in the 1990's. He wanted to be a nurse. I hope these two murderers get the maximum sentence. He did not deserve to suffer and die this way.

It was the same Alva Reeves punk that Kilt Buster "Toe Head" Allison a few years ago by beating, stabbing him.

He has shot and stabbed his own family members. So he is defective and needs to be put down like the wild
rabid animal/human trash he really is....
