I guess. The Patch has been pretty poor since they got rid of their local editors.

Thanks for the info. I could see on top of the Hill on Monterey Road, the bottom of Monterey RoadRead More was blocked off. Only saw the lights of the Fire Truck, police cars and ambulance, but could not figure out what was happening. Good news, the boy will be ok.

Capitalism is defined as an economic system in which investment in and ownership of the means ofRead More production, distribution, and exchange of wealth is made and maintained chiefly by private individuals or corporations for private profit... in contrast to Socialism (co-operatives) or Communism (state ownership) - whereby people work or act together for a collective or social benefit. Hence PG&E is saying we are acting to benefit our private or corporate stockholders! We didn't do anything wrong - according to the definition of capitalism! In essence, under capitalism, PROFITS are Privatized, and LOSSES are Socialized!

These companies think little of life; money is their bottom line. It is like BP, they are willing toRead More take risks with the safety of others, (and the environment) because they figure the money they save will be huge, and public memory is short! Those who die are merely collateral damage. Then they make ads that say how much they "really care!" They should save that BS ad money and use it for making improvements on their pipelines and rigs! Stick it to these oil a-holes, and go green!

Oh yeah. A real victory for the South City public school. Shining examples, real good kids.

Everyone is against paying taxes: taxes bad! - everyone wants the services that taxes support, likeRead More law enforcement - law enforcement good! Let's see, law enforcement good but no taxes... humm, wonder why they have become rolling tax collectors?

These following laws have been on the books for years: •86 for distracted driving violationsRead More •38 for pedestrian safety violations •25 for stop sign violations •10 for seatbelt violations If you can't abide by the law, then plain and simple you have to pay the piper. I live in South San Francisco and just like any other city we have traffic cameras to catch those that run red lights. The thing I don't understand is as to why there isn't a law to penalize those who hold up traffic. I am certain I am not the only one who has idled behind someone who is going to make a right turn but is stopped because of a red light. If there is cross traffic or any instance where another driver has the right of way, this isn't a problem. The problem arises when a driver will sit at a red light even though they can safely proceed with their right turn. I would dearly love to see the SSF PD and other police departments start giving people tickets for obstructing traffic for no good reason.
John Negley April 21, 2014 at 12:27 pm
I am surprised at peoples responses of negativity. Have any of you driven anywhere recently? PeopleRead More drive without a care about safety at all. The only way to stop the behavior is to ticket people for it. Stop complaining and using the rue of it being bad because it is generating revenue. 86 distracted driving violations!! 86 people that were talking on their phone or texting which could have resulted in killing someone. 38 pedestrian safety violations. That means that pedestrians where in danger of getting struck, and you people are complaining?! Shaking my head.

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.
Francie April 7, 2014 at 11:52 am
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...
