current argus you need to f*ck off you know d@mn straight this would not be in the paper if he was not john gamble's brother. you're just trying to make the gamble family look just like a terrible, horrible group of people.
and all you stupid @$$ idiots posting above me, you all need to shut ur mouths. u have no clue what really happened so just get lost.
f*ck the current argus and all u dumb@sses above me you all don't know **** just jumping to conclusions.
Although I believe newspapers, tv and radio news often screw-up facts, in 80% of the cases they don't have an agenda--they simply don't check their stories for factual details.
If anything, I believe the CA is guilty of kissing the rosy backsides of presumed power brokers in the government--including the police.

There are very few courageous news outlets in our country. Most are feint-hearted lemmings, which is very sad.

if the city and the county had more youth programs and give feleans more time in jail instead of a slap on the wrist. insted of looking for junk cars and how law abiding citizens live in there own property maybe we would get some of the chuck holes on our county roods
Wow, let's make what these two brothers did the fault of the city? Put accountability where it belongs, with the individuals who commit the crime. Everybody is always wanting to blame everyone and everything for what criminals do. Perhaps to often as they were growing up it was always somebody else's fault in their eyes and in their parents eyes, but if parents don't hold their kids accountable for their actions when their young usually these kids will growing up always thinking that it's somebody or something else's fault. Eventually the parents will not be able to point fingers at others and bail them out.

To much trash talk going on. Those young men didn't need to be where they were and who ever else was there. As to the residents on Thomas st. where the party was, who are they. They should all have there names in the paper. I pray Ryan fully recovers. It is time for "do the crime, do the time". I can't imagine what Ryan's parents are going through and no parents want to see their kids turn out like Gamble. To much stuff goes on in this small town, to many drugs and to many dealers.

To Last Patriot: In bigger cities kids can particpate in all the stuff you mentioned drugs, gangsm whatever. IT can happen anywhere so stay in Pittsburg cry about the govt I'm sure you a liberal and stay out of NM! Also, the parents are good people dont blame them. And to teetotaler is sometimes does matter who started especially in court remember that. Ben should have not used a beer bottle and they should have just fought the right way. Its just funny to me all the people on here who assume they know everything about this situation Get a life!
if the gamble arents were such 'good' people they would not have raised such scum.... the apple does not fall far from the tree....

The city shouldn't be blamed for their behavior; however, they shouldn't get a pass when it comes to genuinely investigating crimes, arresting criminals, and successfully prosecuting them.

How often have we heard cops say they couldn't do anything if they didn't see the crime, or why bother to prosecute re-offenders because they'll just do repeat the offense again. Or DA's who blow crimes off, saying there's not enough evidence. Or a judge who gives hard-core, repetitive offenders a slap on the wrist for another egregious offense. Or a newspaper who plays it way to safely and doesn't do independent investigations reported to the CA by concerned citizens.

I have known Ryan since riverside school, and I know what caused this to happen. Ben Got his **** beat prior to this incident, by Ryan. He was picking on ryan cause he is small and thought he was tough cause he was in jail. And ryan simply put his you know what in the dirt. Johns buddy who's last name is spillman hit ryan in the head with a flash light prior to this most previous beer bottle incident. and did not feel that was good enough. will give you the rest of the details later. and pray for Ryan and his family.

I wish people would realize you can ge a good parent and have children who do terrible things, and be a bad parent and have good children. Sometimes kids follow in their parents footsteps, but not in this case. No one knows what went on in the Gamble's house but that family. I've known both parents since we were 14 yrs. old, and they ARE good people. I know they've done everything they could for all their children, and they are heartbroken beyond words about Ben & John. People have choices - to listen and be obedient, or to rebel. We've all been down that road. These 2 young men have made terrible choices, but it is NOT because they weren't raised properly. I am so saddened by the grief for all families involved, in both cases. Don't forget, in your harsh judements, it COULD happen in your family.

I know what the problem is with the Gamble's kids, parents with IQ's of 70 that reproduce create these kind of children. Expect this more and more as the populations IQ drops.

If you are talking about who you are talking about, I just know her from the hospital and she is now disabled. I do not know to much about her, just she is a biker.

If their mom has an IQ of 70, I would find it hard that she was able to obtain an RN license, so obviously, her IQ is higher. Is this the person whom I described you are referring too?

Yes, the woman I am talking about is a biker. I am sorry she is disabled but I find it hard to believe she is an RN. Working at the hospital does not automatically make you an RN!

If she has gotten her Sh** together I am glad, because she caused lots of trouble for good friends when she was younger.
