Who wants revenge on the "yucky step mommy"?
Get the facts straight: DAVID OWENS and JOSHUA JOSEPH were/are filthy gang bangers which don't
really matter in the real world. Ya, it sucks that death occured, but when you join a GANG you are asking to be killed. SEX did not kill this GANG member the GANG did...
Wow you are an idiot you need to GET IT STRAIGHT !
Let me guess your now sleeping with the step mommy? Stupid insensitive fool .

I bet they f*cking DA granted that fu*cking whore immunity , for her testimony , Somehow she must and will be held responsible for what she's done .
The husband practically co signing her shit by staying with her , what a spineless idiot , maybe he'll get a clue when she chooses which son to sleep with next .
As far as her working at San Benito High School Hollister , that is a shame a whole new murder plot could be brewing right now between a couple of students she slept with , I'm sure she's serving up more the hot lunches , fu#king petifile . Sick twisted , MURDERER .
She too killed David !
hey idiot ever think the reason why he is still with her is for sake of his other two children? one at 15 and the other what 17?
they have been through enough there almost whole lives dealing with all this. there brother has been in and out of prison his whole life this is harder on them than it is on the parents ... he's just trying to keep his family together ...cut the guy a break.

Yeah okay ??as if keeping them close to the mother is going to do anything but damage them more . A real man would have took the boys and moved on , but yeah for all we the 17 year old could be her boyfreind now , It's disgusting , she is sick . I know why he wont leave... YOU CAN SEE HOW WELL SHE HANDLES REJECTION , I'm sure he's living in fear . It's probly only a matter of time befor she masterminds his murder . Your compasion is misplaced .

im not sticking up for her but that was her step-son she had sex with. Michael and Chris are her full sons for some reason I just dont think she could do that. . . especially with the way she treats them.

What do you mean: "God help you if anything happens?" Her address is part of public record. do you think what she did is OK? She is a cold blooded killer. Nancy Polizzi is a murderer running free. Nobody blames Mark or the kids, just Nancy. If Mark would remove Nancy from the equation and the justice system would lock her up, the world will be a safer place.

I do not know anything about the relationships between the families. All I know is what is in the court transcript of Nancy Polizzi's testimony. She admitted on the stand that she had sex with David Owens once and Joshua Joseph (her husbands son) 20 times. She admitted that she called him and was upset that he wasn't interested in more sex. She felt betrayed. She admitted telling Joshua. She admitted picking up Francisco Vega from Fresno. She admitted going with Francisco and Joshua to a "seedy" neighborhood and giving them $150, which they used to purchase a gun. She admitted that Joshua told her he was going to kill David. She admitted that she bought Joshua a CAR AND A MOTORCYCLE. She admitted that she DROVE BY DAVID OWENS HOUSE WITH JOSHUA AND LATER HAVE HIM A MAP TO DAVID OWENS' HOUSE. She admitted giving Franciso Vega 2 pairs of latex gloves. She admitted giving Joshua $1,000 in the early morning after the killing to buy drugs (Drugs were found in her house). So, by her own admission she is guilty of murder. Someone who aids and abetts a murderer is equally as guilty as the one who pulls the trigger. So, think about it. She deserves the same punishment - life in prison without possibility of parole.

Shame on the people who have posted the address, the street name, the children's names, and Nancy's husband's name. It makes no difference if any of that information is a matter of public record in a court action. YOUR actions have made that information horribly available and the fact that you are further harming those kids is shamefull. They are the true innocents here and in your rabid desire to condemn their mother you have further exposed them. Your desire to hurt her is so powerful that you will harm those kids in order to do it. You ought to think on that and what you've done. Shame on you.

I in no way excuse Nancy. I feel only disgust and feel she should be prosecuted. I trust that the administrators at SBHS have taken measures to make sure that she will no longer be working there.

Which paper would that be? The Hollister Free Lance? If so, neither the paper nor the Free Lance on-line article names the boys or their address.

Yes those kids are innocents in this matter and do not deserve to be named in this mess their mother created.

So, was Nancy at work today?

In your comment you said Joshua Joseph killed Joseph D Boos - Joseph was arrested for drugs and a shooting.........The Joseph that was arrested in Hollister for drugs and for a shooting in San Jose was JOSHUA JOSEPH - not Joseph Boos. JOSHUA JOSEPH was a Norte gang member - The two boys he killed, Joseph Boos and David Owens were not

Don't feel sorry for the killer's family, try thinking of the victim's family and friends. They have suffered immeasurable losses. David Owens left a large family and so did Joseph Boos. Joshua Joseph, Frankie Vega and Nancy Polizzi ruined a lot of lives. What about Joseph Boos and David owens' brothers? How do you think they feel? Nancy caused this murder. She destroyed a lot of families including her own. She is an evil vile adultress and murderer. Her husband should dump her and take the kids and leave town. Staying with her makes people think he accepts her behavior or was also involved. I hope her life is destroyed. But she will never fully understand the pain unless one of her own is murdered. But then again, she is an evil sociopath and doesn't care about anyone but herself. The only consolation is that she will burn in hell for eternity.h

Ahhh, so you lied when you said their names and addresses appeared in the local paper. Super attendant??? LOL That's superintendent and yes, he has been contacted and he did give a statement in yesterday's paper. BTW, I happen to know that Nancy was not at work yesterday. You ought to not make statements here that can be proven to be false. Anyone can access the Free Lance article and see that the names and address were not printed and they can also see that the superintendent was contacted and he made a statement.

I sure will feel sorry for her children. They are also her victims. She's screwed up their lives. I have thought about the murder victims and their family and friends. I have not in any way excused Nancy. In my first post I said she should be prosecuted.
