my thoughts and prayers to the family of Anthony. I am a parent myself and I just cannot imagine what the family is going through. Whatever the circumstances of the death, nobody can bring Anthony back. No amount of lawsuit or fingerpointing will make Anthony come back. So I trust the law will do their part and enlighten everybody on what actually happened. As for the officers involved, I trust you too will get the proper treatment of the law.

Monday hunter, a little consideration please. This young man comes from a wonderful & decent family here in our city. I did not know Tony personally but my daughter who went to school with him know him well &remember him as a gentle, kind, friendly young man who had a lot going for him. The interview with his co-workers in Walnut Creek proves how loved & respected Tony was. As a parent myself, I can rightfully say that I would rather have my child back than be "awarded" all the money in the world!
