All cases involving this rogue officer must be re_examined and subsequently thrown out. Who policeRead More the Police? I have Seen the enemy., and he is..............

Autumn: Your very informitive initial story peaked my interest not only because my Family and I liveRead More in Pleasant Hill, but also for the unfortunate lack of details. It's not your fault of course, given the constraints of having to live under the "deadline monster" as you do. Having said that, I note that there was no-follow up info published from your wire service feed for more than 24 hrs, and it took " Matt B's" posting of almost 3 days later to give out important information, other than the "tease" line about the intial incident. My Teen age daughters and I frequent the exact location of that robbery, and it would be nce to know where it was. " South bound on CC Blvd" from where? If your wire service is that inept, I suggest taking action: Find a responsible organization. If other people that are involved aren't asking the correct questions, ( who what where when why and how for a start) Then I know that DVC has basic investgation / journalism classes ( like the ones I've taken and now teach ) available.

@Blue: Normally, we would have follow up on these kinds of cases. However, this is actually not aRead More site I cover. I have 16 other Patch sites that I am assigned to and I posted this from our wire service as a courtesy for residents. Additionally, Matt B's comment, although seemingly informative, does not say where he heard the information or if it was confirmed by officials.

The suspect ran south bound contra costa from inside the century theater parking after theRead More unsuccessful attempt. I know the exact location because I'm the victim.

Getting people like Schwartz away from children and teenagers is great, but these people areRead More suffering from terrible psychological disorders. They also need treatment. Simply labeling them as "predetors" and then locking them up is inhumane. The same could be said for many other criminals. Any plans for that in the next few centuries, world?

I can't believe your comment and don't know where to start..... For these criminals (not people -Read More they have lost their right to be called human), there is no rehabilitation. Look at Cary Verse. Even after he was chemically castrated he was still caught with a young boy, thankfully before he had molested him (I hope). For some, their brains will never be right, either due to naturally born conditions, chemical changes, or drug use. Arsonists, pedophiles, murderers.....there will be no rehabilitation. Don't fool yourself into thinking they have been either. The money required for "treatment" of these criminals would be infinite. They can never be returned to the free world. Would you, Michael, really want one of them to live next to you?

Shocked and appalled. found this link where this guy was paraded in font of school children. CopsRead More are not superheroes just public servants, lets keep it real. http://claycord.com/2011/05/18/monte-gardens-elementary-says-thanks-to-the-concord-police-department/

If any of this went down like this, this officer needs serious psycho therapy. He needs to beRead More labeled 5150 more than spend life in prison. Prison never works for people this far in to Neverland. Jeez! I wonder how long investigators let him do this after they were alerted. Good luck convincing a jury with pill addicted witnesses on the stand. Very scary situation for sure!

Yeah, 4 million bail for this nobody while actual murderers get less than 1 million.. Our legalRead More system is 100% a JOKE!!

Well .... ferenc, it was released for publication. I could not get it to download on my computer. ItRead More was getting late, so I opted to put in link to the sketch so I could at least update for readers. And I agree, very good news no one was injured.
The Blue Knight April 1, 2014 at 10:14 am
I hate to be picky here, but just what kind of "dark bread" did this guy have?Read More Pumpernickel? Russian Rye? Doesn't anyone proofread theses articles before publication?

That can happen on any freeway around here.

Too many lookie loos. Folks, please just concentrate on your own driving direction! If there is anRead More accident on the other side of the freeway, I'm sure CHP can handle it without your concern.
