I don't mean to sound uncaring, but I don't think society is going to miss either of these two.

When someone begins a sentence with "I don't mean to sound uncaring" it's 99.9% of the time followed by something totally uncaring....the above is no exception.
I also like how the ILWU looks the other way when it comes to the background checks of its members. Drug arrests and burglary...nice!!

"....... before the shooting when Atchley's daughter, Krystal, drove him to a location to do drugs. Banes was there and blew a kiss at her. "

Dude that is just two beutiful. His daughters name is KRYSTAL. I wonder if her middle name is METH.

Two dirtbags off the docks. Now only about 30 thousand more low life 'longies' to go !

I'm glad the murdering "Pedro Idiot" is leaving. We've got to get rid of a least a few more here. Not that I am bagging on San Pedro, honestly..if you live in L.A....idiots are just part of the landscape.
Not a single city is immune.

Premeditated first degree murder and he can get out in 50 years! Earlier with good behavior??? WTF...

What happened to the death penalty or at least life with no parole as a minimum.

Good reporting. Good result. Thirty minutes to reach a verdict. When it was so clear, I think even that was too long.

It's just too bad that he has to die in prison, but he is no friend of no one. What else would he expect when he goes around Pedro commintting crimes all the time. He is not the innocent his family would make him out to be. He is a low life all the way!

The DB just likes to announce when someone is a longie because of the big bucks they make... Looks like he won't be making the big bucks anymore.

What is it with these longshoremen? Why can't good, law-abiding people who don't do illegal drugs get these jobs? What is it about San Pedro and LA in that things always go wrong?!

I remember the original article and following comments from the Atchley family attempting to protect the involved daughter. The fact was then, as it is now they have been and always will be involved in drugs. A sad part of this story is that they are teaching younger family members that drug usage is an accepted practice and working the dock is their future. (No offense intended to members of ILWU, but an education has its place)

Goodriddance to trash!! What kind of dad allows their daughter to take him to go buy drugs?! The nerve of him killing another low life for blowing his trashy daughter a kiss. He dosen't care about his daughter. It was like a slap in Rufus' face when the other low life blew a kiss to his daughter and he had to save face cause Rufus was still mad at the other dude for befriending his girlfriend. Rufus was putting his daughter in danger when he let her take him looking to buy drugs. I also remember the day the coppers were trying to get him to come out and Rufus also purtting his mom in danger and the cops treating her like crap also. So, low life Rufus got what he deserved. I say GOODRIDDANCE!!!!!!

Simply another murderer who will be wearing a different uniform from now on. Never smell that salt in the air again huh? Even though the victim may have not been a nice guy, he didn't deserve to be shot over that. Hope the tramp who went to stay with the victim feels guilty as she should. Two lives gone because of her and Ms. Krystal-meth.

This guy's parents share the blame. They put him on a path of destruction when they saddled him with that name!

Goodriddance:

You said it so eloquently and hit the nail right on the head. I don't need to say anymore.

The Shadow:

I've seen that skinny, foul-looking, scum-bag tramp and doubt very much she has any guilt....she has two less suppliers, that's all.
