Who are all of you to judge why Rufus did what he did!! I know for damned sure if ANYONE hurt my child those **** will pay! Thats your child anyone would have done the same. Drug addict or not! When it comes to anyone disrespecting or hurting my child you best believe sh*ts going down! From what I've heard from several people this Robert guy was a pervert and he was stalking Krystal. Also why does the longie issue keep coming up?? What he did has nothing to do with his profession. Are you just jealous that you cant make as much money as the Longies?? Not all longies are low lifes its like any profession there could be a cokehead sitting next to you in your office so dont just point fingers to Longshoremen both my Grandfathers work down there and are good men, never touched a drug in their life so stop referring to Longies as Lowlifes!
BY THE WAY HOW MUCH ARE THE LONGIES MAKING RIGHT NOW

Well said! I am a Longie and I am not a ''LOWLIFE!". I am a mother of 3 GATE kids and I have a degree from CSUDH. I have always taught my children respect and always given them love and for them to respect others. In every profession there are lowlifes not just down on the docks! Last week I worked with a old high school teacher of mine and a retired judge and his nephew a retired detective. Like every where else, there are people from different walks of life and we are all trying to make a decent living like the rest of the country. Unfortunately, Rufus decieded to take the law into his own hands and for that we have a given a bad name. Just remember only God is the one to judge.

Old high school teacher probably represented by UTLA.
retired judge = most likely a former deputy district attorney with union representation before being elected judge.
retired detective = definitely represented by a peace officer's association.
So they all want to become "I Loathe Working Union" members becoming less productive workers.

Not to interupt, but G.A.T.E. is Gifted and Talented Education ( I think the E-education, might be wrong)... Anyway kids are tested I think in the 3rd or 4th grade for it, it is for kids that show "special" (not slow, damn you BHO) talents in subjects. And would get otherwise bored in regular class. At least this is what GATE is in Lawndale.
