Probation for stabbing ? My cousin paco did 12 years for stabbing someone, but of course he is brown so that means his charges were different. "attempted murder." lesson is, if you are a minority get ready to do some serious time.
Rudy is a minority.

"The defense attorneys cited evidence purportedly showing that the victim had a violent past, and said they expected to prove their clients were provoked."

The victim was a 'roided out drunk who may have killed the girl if Rudy hadn't come to her rescue.

yes.. very good question why the "victim" didn't receive any jail time for spitting on a woman's face and socking her in the throat. all cuz she confronted him of the abuse done to her friend?? but the Daily Breeze doesn't mention any of that. no prison time because the "victim" had been stabbed before for the same reason.. about to beat someone to death!! jail time? yes they both did for protecting themselves against a violent 6'2 "victim" on steroids. do ur homework, if not, shut it!! the only reason they got this deal was because the judge saw right through Fogul and was handed a binder of all the "victim'S" victim's!!!! n p.s. rudy is most def a minority ;)

And despite problems like this, the Hermosa Beach City Council keeps pushing to allow these Pier establishments to have longer operating hours and thus servering even more liquor to its patrons.
I tried calling the Police about a large gathering of party goers by my house at 2 AM one weekend and was told that this was their "busy time" and that they would get to me when they had time.
I wonder how much money the city is spending for Police protection on the Pier area?
They spend most of their resources on Pier Ave. Doing secuity guard work. Sad.

Cause it is bringing business and money in to your town, and lots of it...some of those bar tabs are just downright ridicules, yet they still pay it. The bars pay their city taxes which Im sure are pretty hefty, and in return allow a bunch of young drunks to stay out late and party...
2am is when the bars are supposed to close, therefore everyone is leaving and crowding the streets creating their "busy time".
Above lies and distortions were wriitten by a bar owner or bar groupie. No basis of truth. City stated many times costs of police for bars is much more than small tax gotten from bars. You have no FACTS. Where do you get your FACTS? Why are you posting from a CARSON location about Hermosa Beach. You got a bar in Carson? You driving around using other people's computer wireless connection?

Anyone pulling a knife and stabbing someone in a street fight should do some jail time...all the rest of your nonsense is just that, nonsense.

So this woman gets right up in this guys face but at the same time she feels he might beat her to death. Do you know how incredibly dumb that sounds? Wasn't it lucky that her friends were carrying knives for.. self defense?

Since when has anyone who has been plied with liquor had any fear of another? Do you really expect intoxicated or HBD people to have any fears of others when they are angry?

Boy!!! Talk about being uninformed! You must be new around here. Obviously the new kid on the block. Those were not lies or even distortions. What you read from "WSJ Is MY Hero" is the cold hard truth of the matter. The Hermosa Beach Pier area has been the gathering point for party animals for years. Have you no clue as to what happens when people drink in large groups??? Where have you been buddy-boy? Do you not read the newspapers, watch the TV News, etc. etc. Why do you not keep up on the news? Do you drink too much and aren't able to hold a cup of coffee steady in the morning? It must be that you are a party animal from the pier who just wants to defend the night life that you seem to love sooooooo much. Get informed so that you don't look like what the other poster already told you that you are, a "jerk".
