Susan, please do research. If a bike hits the rear of an auto, it means REAREND. NOT laneRead More splitting. If driver of struck auto is an old lady, she probably hit the brakes hard to cause the accident. If so, DMV is liable as they issued a dementian a driving license.

We must, as voters, break up the media cartel so that we can get accurate and thorough reporting.

Immigration status??
Dianna Bolin April 5, 2014 at 01:27 pm
^^ wow. Your comment is offensive.

Dianna Bolin: Some Americans actually think immigrants (legal & illegal) commit a lot of crime.Read More We can disprove this hateful nasty vicious utterly-baseless stereotype by revealing the immigration status of all criminals, both alleged & convicted. Never fear the truth!

I understand there is a loophole that will allow him to defend himself via the use of his campaignRead More contributions..

We could be reading a similar story about every single one of our "public servants",Read More democrat or republican. Everything is for sale for what amounts to peanuts to the corporations and criminals that make "political contributions". The larger we allow the state to grow the worse this is going to get. "when you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion - when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing - when you see money flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors - When you see that men get richer by graft and pull then by work, and your laws don't protect you against them but protect them against you - when you see corruption Being rewarded and honestly being a self sacrifice, you may know that your society is doomed."

It is unbelievable to me that he is still collecting his salary. While the federal government wagesRead More a war on terrorism, Yee tries to sell them weapons. I hope he sees the inside of a prison as a result. Imagine how the other corrupt politicians in Sacramento are sweating.

Anybody who criticizes Leland Yee is racist. Felonies not withstanding....
Hutch March 28, 2014 at 09:10 pm
What's the difference between Leland Yee doing favors for political contributions and otherRead More politicians doing favors to unions and corporations? The whole system is rigged to screw taxpayers. They need to stop all personal gifts and corporate donations including unions.
Hutch March 31, 2014 at 02:19 pm
It's time for this crap to stop. Send Jerry Hill a message Senator.Hill@senate.ca.gov Tell him toRead More change laws to stop all "gifts" and stop contributions by lobbyists, corporations and unions. Also if a politician is suspended they should lose all pay and benefits unless they are later exonerated.

This subsequent 'report' seems a bit thin, too... You state that 'she lied' - on what grounds do theRead More police, and subsequently yourself, Ms. Schena, base this statement? I would love to see journalism embrace the idea that statements should be backed up with facts and direct quotes from real people. The Fox 'News' style of saying "a source who doesn't want their name mentioned, said "..." is NOT legitimate reporting. I'm sure you can see why. These unsubstantiated pronounces that are made at The Patch weaken any position it may be hoping for as an actual local news source. So, back to this story... Did the young lady really lie, or was the young man involved the son of someone important? Stranger things than that have happened in Santa Cruz.
Susan C. Schena March 21, 2014 at 11:41 am
You make a good point, L.J. Coffeehead. And I agree with you on unsubstantiated news. But in thisRead More case, I said the COPS SAID she lied. So that is where I got my information -- and it was from the department's spokesperson, whom I did not name just for brevity's sake. And I don't know -- personally -- if the girl did, in fact, lie when she originally told the story, or lied when she said she was lying. But your point is well-made and well-taken. Thanks!

Hopefully now that this man has been released he will be "safe". The DA should fileRead More charges on those responsible for his beating. Justice will prevail.

Maybe they should look for the other three? Probably the group is on a camera somewhere?
