The problem IS our legal system (it is NOT a "justice" system. The death penalty andRead More mandatory extreme sentencing do nothing to deter crime, and they often catch INNOCENT people in their dragnets. If one innocent person is killed by us, then we the people (and there have been hundreds in modern day, tens of thousands if you go back 150 years) then we all have blood on our hands. If one innocent person agrees to a plea bargain to avoid a harsher sentence (thousands EVERY day), then we the people are responsible for ruining lives. Fully 95% of those accused of crimes NEVER get to face their accusers in a court of law; they plead out before trial because they are threatened with ridiculous sentences. Our legal system is a mockery of what it was designed to be. Everyone from the judge to the court clerk to the bailiff to the jailer makes a living off of punishment. And as it gets privatized, we are ALL in serious danger of being locked up, having our property seized, or paying life-changing fines, because justice will be secondary to profit. Those reasons are why these two pieces of shit should not be executed if found guilty. Because, just maybe, they didn't do it.

Oh, and I won't blame the homeowners associations. I blame general alienation which is a normal progressive consequence that generally goes hand in hand with prosperity. Oh, and the reason I don't see any kids cutting grass anymore for spending money is because the illegals have captured that market and taken it away from the youngsters in southern California.

And who am I to know...there might be some secret communication going on there between the two? Why do you think dogs are so attached to hydrants versus, let's say, stop signs? Mine never goes to stop signs. There's something about a hydrant that seems to be special. Since I don't speak dog or hydrant language - I can't figure it out. So I stopped trying until this darn article popped up. Now I can't stop thinking about it. Oh well. I could go on for hours.

There might be some TinselTown director out there watching this story unfold who might beRead More interested in turning it into a TV drama. He could call it "Lion Terror in the OC". Had I been the one to scare that mean cat away I'd probably dress up in a ninja outfit or something for the press photo. A Tarzan loincloth with a Fred Flintstone wooden club would probably be a little melodramatic and counterproductive, turning off most viewers with normal eyesight. In a lifetime most of us only get maybe 10 to 15 minutes of fame (at most). So my philosophy has always been to make hay while the sun shines. As a kid I was selected from the audience at an NBA game to carry an advertising placard on the BB court at halftime with a bunch of other kids. It was on the regional TV network. That was the beginning and end of my screen career. Thinking back maybe I should have done my Groucho Marx imitation routine. It might have opened a door and I could have been a somebody. Oh well.

Matt, thank you for clarifying your earlier comment. Now I understand your viewpoint much better. IRead More think there are alot of people who think like you do. In fact, I know there are since entire states have banned DUI checkpoints on constitutional grounds. Many people who understand history and the way powerful governments evolve are leary of the 'slippery slope' syndrome - by which onerous and consuming laws tend to build upon one another. How many new ones are enacted each year in California alone? 1000? Your comments on the SCOTUS are very observant. Look at their ruling on the ObamaCare mandate....that the Commerce Clause did not apply. This, of course, leaves the door open for government to mandate a tax on any behavior that it wishes to promote - and you must pay it (like it or not) or deal with the government enforcement arm. Unfortunately the SCOTUS has become highly politicized as of late and I find that to be quite precarious relative to the state of our nation. Per the problems we've witnessed with NSA and Mr. Snowden's revelations it seems that privacy in America is becoming an endangered species. And many of our highest leaders (like Diane Feinstein) are perfectly satisfied with domestic NSA spying but when she found out that the CIA was said to have spied on her Ms. Feinstein became enraged. The shoe hurt when it was on the other foot. I agree with your outlook on these matters in general, Matt. And I thank you for the update, sir.

Rather difficult to figure out what the actual extent of the violation was. If say 10 were made inRead More Haiti instead of in OC, then $500,000 may be too steep if there were no adverse effects. But if 45% of all made were made in Haiti, or if people suffered because of poor quality, then $500,000 might be too light a fine. Someday we'll see more judges rejecting such settlements until more details are made public and criminal wrongdoing if any is not brushed under the rug. Settlements are a lot worse in the financial sector.
