I used to live on the East Side of San Jose. That sort of thing was commonplace among PCP abusersRead More in the South Bay back in the 1980s.

Gee, that's funny, I lived in the East side of San Jose (Evergreen) never saw any of that type ofRead More behavior happen in my neighborhood.

Michele, you assume the registry protects at least one child. How can you say that? Do you knowRead More any children "protected" by the registry? On the contrary, I have two things to say; first, the VAST majority of child sexual abuse is perpetrated within the child's own home or close social circle, NOT by persons on any registry. Second, by "protecting one child" (or pretending to), how many children are you causing harm to? By these children, I mean those whose parents/family members/loved ones are on the registry, and who suffer collateral consequences. Children who are ridiculed or bullied at school because of a family member's status, innocent children who are victimized when vigilante violence follows public registry, children who committed no crime but whose parent/family member/loved one can not secure a home, can not obtain a job, and is precluded from reuniting with the family or reintegrating into society. In addition to harming plenty of children, this behavior by persons pretending to protect children makes NO ONE safer.

The purpose of Offender Watch is to lessen the anxiety of those living and working in San MateoRead More County. I guess you have no former sex offenders living or working in San Mateo County, who might not appreciate their and their family's information gratuitously emailed to anyone who signs up for it. The registry damages families, inhibits rehabilitation and provides A FALSE SENSE OF SAFETY to parents.

It has been a great help for everyone, for any individual that this site has been established. WeRead More can certainly track sex offenders in our community. Which we can easily avoid them or we can take action on how to deal with them. We can't predict where a sex offender could harm us, so it's a better way to fight against them. There is nothing more important than being safe. We should always take certain actions against it; as for me, I found a certain safety application on android phone that helps me track sex offenders on my phone, and just a click on a panic button it could create a conference call to a 24/7 call center, a safety network and could escalate a call to a nearest 911 if it's a real emergency, check this site out for more http://safekidzone.com/?a_aid=52f12f7275422

Certainly a tragic event, a pipeline failure that was built in the 1940's. The San Bruno Mayor andRead More associated politico's view this as a retirement event - the spin machines are grinding already. By next week they will be squealing that it was premeditated! This will become a feeding frenzy in an attempt to fill the government coffers. They will then loot those coffers and quietly retire.
dragon April 4, 2014 at 04:37 pm
This was a tragic event. However, can the city of San Bruno afford the cost behind this and alsoRead More have some transparency. We do have many homes broken into through out the city, invasions, car jacks, stealing tires and rims off residents vehicles in front of there homes, graffiti, and backward thinking. Don't forget there is new committee formed that is in control of $70,000,000 dollars. To much power playing and business as usual.

PG&E Thought it could beat Karma with 'Spin' and Millions in advertising and influence peddling.Read More Thanks to the free thinking people of the Bay Area... They are now going to have to spend their Big bucks on Maintenance and Safety... Concept eh!

"Disgraced Senator Yee" -- if that's the case, then every person in Congress should beRead More "disgraced" for taking lobbyists' and corporation money to do their bidding, which they do without restraint, to the detriment of We, the People. There are 30 - 40 lobbyists per member of congress, and no one says "peep" about how rigged our system of government is...

As long as the officers don't lie about the alleged texting and their supervisors don't blindly backRead More them, I am okay with the crack down and law. Safety first! It's when dirty cops make the good cops look bad, it's when I have an objection. It only takes one dirty cop to take down a department!
Alyssa Negrette April 1, 2014 at 07:06 am
It should really be against the law to be doing anything other than driving when operating aRead More vehicle. No mobile devices, no eating, no radio scanning, no smoking, etc. I agree with the above comment. Keep the crack down honest.
Chris Corbett April 1, 2014 at 07:49 am
That is the hard part for the Sheriffs and Chiefs in our community. There is always one or two copsRead More who are on the dirty side. And, the sad part is, their supervisors and department must blindly "back" them, as they'd be held accountable themselves for faulty supervision. Plus, bad cops have the support of their union, so they have their own cushion, so to speak. I was once pulled over and ticketed for alleged texting while driving, when it was still legal to hold a cell in your hand using a speaker (even looking up numbers), and I was prepared to fight it to the Supreme Court, and not a soul locally cared that their was a cop issuing false tickets back in 2009 or 2010. I am not sure, but he still might be on the force...I hope he is a clean cop now! Video cameras are needed to protect people, that's for sure--both the police from false accusations and the citizens from the police lying and using excessive force...

You'll get there some day Jeffrey....
originofalphabet April 11, 2014 at 07:50 am
Are any of the commenters here 62 and female? I doubt it. So you are incredibly uncharitable knowingRead More nothing about this woman's life. The Internet is all about schadenfreude. (Look it up.) I hope before you go interact with more people that you get some therapy so that you understand how the world can break people. It's so entertaining to make fun of broken people isn't it? Because they're pathetic and can't fight back. You're all such cowards. Go do something positive rather than wasting your time here denigrating a poor women who doesn't even have the resources to get to Hawaii and tries the only way she knows how.
Phillip Bailey April 11, 2014 at 12:45 pm
@ originofalphabet - You are correct. Those snarky posters will "get there" some time inRead More their life time and or have a loved one who comes down with ALS or MS or Parkinson's. Our global planet has gone to H*ll in a hand-basket.

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.

There are con artists around every corner! It makes me angry that people take from those who are notRead More wealthy, and who need money just as much as they! I got ripped of by a BUG con artist, Merrill Lynch, but somehow they were never arrested....I guess some are too big for that kind of thing!

This is why I simply do NOT understand our court system. "authorities found 938 pounds ofRead More explosives, 732 barrel bombs and 44 pounds of "black powder," or gunpowder, " is followed by "He pleaded not guilty"
