now that the election is over, you can see how Ramsey picks and chooses his cases - this murderer (yes, he IS a murderer), will be out in under 10 years, with good behavior, time-served, etc... he may not live that long, when his fellow cons learn he shot a black guy, though

So the step father happened to be black, big deal. The guy was an addict, drunk, cronk,thief, CHILD MOLESTER and abused the kid's mother. His mother can't be any better. Pulling the race card is as old as the hills and doesn't fly in this day and age. I don't know the kid, but I hope he gets a lesser sentence. This kid is a classic example of why scum should not be allowed to reproduce.

I DO know the kid, and he was cocky and unlikable. BUT THEN I got to KNOW him, and realized that everything I SAW was just a protective front. You're right "Seriously Folks", the step father was a monster who should have been brought down by the law long before this tragedy.

Michael is obviously a very guarded person, but IF you can gain his trust, you would know that he is actually a very funny, giving, caring person who is passionate about martial arts and finding inner peace. He is that guy who stands up for those who can't stand up for themselves. I have seen him look out for the weak, and volunteer his time to help others.

This is a lose/lose situation and very sad. If there were justice, the step father would be in prison for the horror and terror that he imposed on those around him. I can't imaging living the life that Michael endured everyday. I DO hope that the system takes into account what this man did this family before passing a sentence, because he wasn't a "poor innocent victim". He is the one who started the terror that night and dictated the events that lead to the eventual outcome.

I don't condone murder by any means, but I do believe in self-defense. I DO believe that Michael Cavalli acted in self-defense.

well i do hope that he gets time for his crime and even if her gets the max of 21 years thats not enough, this kid is a blackeye to the paradise kids that so called have bad relationships with their parents.
usually they just smoke pot, or paint their faces and listen to depressing music. but they dont go shooting anyone like this "kid" did... i want to see him fry and good luck, now he can be a prospect for the "butte county gangsters" "237" and then drop out like the rest of them no good people

acted in self-defense about what? the man that got shot didn't have a weapon, this mike cavalli is a no good p.o.s like the victim, dead to the world and is gonna have to pay for his crime.
even though the person that was killed was a bad person for the stuff he did, does NOT give the right to take someones life, michael is not part of law enforcement, well he is now "STATE PROPERTY" well he knew right from wrong, you can blam that his upbringing is bad and blah blah! save it. i have a rough childhood, but i never killed anyone over it. i dont blame anyone for my faults in life and to think that im gonna fell sorry for him, thats where you got everything mixed up. do the crime and do the time, if he got the max of 21 years thats light, if you ask me. my tax dollars are gonna put food and clothes on his back that whole time, just as it has when his family was on walfare. so the best of luck to him and all, so the "parent" that wrote earlier let him know that stuff is gonna be all bad rolling with them butte county boys in prison, cause thats where hes going... kiss him good bye, cause when he gets out in 21+ years hes gonna not have any good people skills and be covered in crude tattos and not have a willingness to work or better himself, since he always wants to take the easy way out of everything.

"hope he can see the light" just because things get rough and tough dont mean you have to kill
no justice

the max is not doing justice, but he will slip and mess up in prison by hanging with the wrong crowd, my tax dollars are gonna support him in the things he does. even when he clicks up in a gang thats gonna turn their back on him, hes gonna go to protective house like a snich and live in fear for his whole live... good luck mike see you when you get out on 21+ years

I think he will now know the fear and bullying that he created when he was in school and beat up innocent kids that he thought were gay or differant .....Pay backs coming and he will be in and out of prison just like his Dad and all of his aunts and uncles...His meth head Mom goes around comes around

A public lynching in Terry Asher Park would be good for this white trash. White racists like the defendant give caucasians a bad name, and an example should be made with this scumbag murderer. HANG HIM I SAY... thumbs up!

well i LIVE in paradise and i see black people all the time and nobody messes with them nor do they burn crosses on their lawns. thats just make believe stuff, that ya'll want to say happends in this small town. the skin heads are a complete joke to them selves and to white people. most of the so-called "skinheads" just want to belong to something and put hate into someone or something because they look at color as being different and taboo, but if you go into their CD collection and ipod you will find RAP music from black people. thats funny to me, because they say that they are a "skinhead" but got rap music, now thats contradicting themselves. i call that plain out being a poser, and not down for what you say you believe and all that bs they go by

I wish I could see a picture of this person. If it is the same 'Michael' that I think it is, he nearly destroyed my child's life a few years ago.
That's all I'll say for now. I'll be at the sentencing just to see if it is him. If anyone can tell me where to see a picture, please let me know. Thank you.
