Good police work and persistence by the prosecutors. Liquidation would seem to be the proper sentence.

I guess I don't quite understand "ex-felon", is that like "ex-alcoholic". Does one stop being a felon?

There are two things convicted felons can't do when they get out of prison: vote and own guns.

While crimials probably need guns, even more than good people, the law says they can't have them and putting them behind bars for posession of firearms sounds like a good deal.

The other thing is Voting. Its very interesting that the Democrat politicians want to let the vote, but don't want them to own guns. Do you suppose that is because the Democrats know that the votes are "worthless"?

Ex Felon,
Just to clear up a couple of things, a person can vote once He/She is off parole.After a period of time, 7-10 years, a person can apply for Certificate of Rehabilation/Pardon, and if and when granted, all rights are restored, including A Right to Bare Arms.Be it far and few, it does happen, not all are beyond rehabilation. Contrary to worldy belief, people do change. With the stregth that God gives us. all is possible, Thank you Jesus, Lord of Lords, King of Kings <><

wow, I wonder where all the upper scale yups are going to get their meth now?

what about all those spoiled kids, no meth?

Maybe they will result in raiding mommy and poppies purse for some Legal narcotics

meth, is a social problem, this guy who is delivering it to your neighbors is only providing the service. You empower him, you employ him, without your dollars he goes out of business.

Think, really think...who is using all this meth? you're right, your doctors, lawyers, nurses, babysitters and more.

To place all the blame on a business man who is only protecting his life, is the easy way out and small time thinkin.

Boy, isn't it a lot easier to blame someone, rather than think about the ramifcations of what is happening to our soceity?

The US must invest on stronger social programs for the rich kids and to make sure kids like this gang banger have as much as right at using meth and not going to jail for distributing it as your kidd do. shessshe, poor gang banger had no choice, bad enviroment!

what's your excuse for your kids doing drugs Mr. West Torrance High, or Mr. PV high?

hahaha

It's much easier to go after the makers & distributors than it is the individual user.

When faced with the big picture, you go after the big guns first.

Stop blaming just the users and put the blame where it belongs, on all involved.

On another note, most meth users aren't rich by any means.

The "La Rana Gang"! Man, those rowdy Chicano's have been there on Del Amo Blvd. since the 1960's and before. I used to date a cute "Chicana from La Rana" who went to Torrance High. Her brother and some of the other "Vatos" thought I was cool because I knew how to lower a car without screwing it up. Times have changed. "Viva (the old) La Rana".

Its funny how I can comment on a low life Mexican drug dealers but I cannot comment on LOWLIFE PEDOPHILE WHITES roaming Redondo Beach and coaching Palo Verde schools and parks. Daily Breeze provide us a reason why? We can say send all this other races away but a PEDOPHILE WHITE PERSON no one can say anything because the comment section is disabled. Probably white kids would not need to use drugs if the kids are not molested anymore. Then the drug dealers would have no customers then we would have no problems. I know I know someone is going to say I am stupid, dumb and a racist. I dont think so. Anyways I am glad they caught this guy, meth is bad, I have seen it ruin many lives, keep up the good work to all the officers who protect our community.

You constantly rant about whites and say they are all pedophiles and say things like you hold your nieces closer when a white person walks by to protect them. Yet, somehow, you think that belief doesn't make you a racist. Go figure. The Breeze doesn't remove those posts and you post them all over, even when they have NOTHING to do with the story, as in this case.

I don't think so either. You're just unaware. Unaware that the molesters are mentally ill, but that we don't have anyplace to send them since the US officially began to close the mental hospitals in 1963. Yeah, I know, you all think that Reagan closed the mental hospitals but it was JFK and the legislation "CMHC Act 1963". The Mexicans were let in with the "Immigration Reform Act of 1965" and the ACLU has made it impossible to get the crazy committed (to where?) and the illegal deported to Mexico (and other countries) when they've had a child in the USA.

What we are living is the nightmare that was created by the JFK/LBJ Congress in the 1960's. They meant well, though.

Absolutely. You hit the nail on the head.
Well, except Adolph Hitler was a meth user and he had lots of money--before he lost everything and killed himself. Hmmm. That was sarcasm, I know LOL understands that, but some others probably won't.
