Re: “Letters to the Editor: May 10, 2017

THE REAL PROBLEM

I am struggling to accept the magnitude of arrogance, ignorance and utter callousness on the part of the writers of Let It Rest (May 10) regarding the tragic shooting death of 13-year-old Andy Lopez by Deputy Erick Gelhaus in 2013.
The writers appear not to understand that the boy was carrying a plastic toy gun, not the real thing.
Furthermore, they are obviously unaware that Mr. Gelhaus has already testified that he actually wasn't sure if the gun was pointed at him. According to 9th Circuit Judge Milan Smith, who recently heard the latest Gelhaus defense plea to kill the Lopez family wrongful death lawsuit, "There is no license for police to kill teenagers within three seconds when even that officer says that the gun was not pointing at him or even coming up to point at him, and others say the same thing."
Sonoma County has already spent or committed some $2.35 million to outside attorney fees to prevent Gelhaus from facing trial but it's looking as though the 9th Circuit is leaning toward just that as the likely outcome of this most recent hearing.
The County is talking about taking this case to the Supreme Court but concerned residents here are calling for the immediate settlement with the family to help bring closure to the family as well as to save the County many millions more if the case isn't settled soon.
I suggest that instead of blaming the victim and his parents to boot that these gentlemen consider the real problem we have here: a Sheriff who supports a toxic culture of 'kill first, ask questions later," on the perceived basis that we the people are the enemy out there, not citizens whom law enforcement is supposed to serve and protect.
For this very reason and myriad others, not the least of which is Sheriff Freitas' continuing cooperation with Trump-Sessions plan for ICE to deport three million Mexicans this year alone, this Sheriff is facing a recall campaign right now. It deserves to succeed.

Re: “Gutsy

Hello Everyone, i am DAVID HILL MILLA now living in FLORIDA. I am SINGLE DAD, at the moment, two children and I was struck on the financial situation and need to refinance and pay for my son's medical bills and school fees. I tried looking for different loan lending companies and private corporation but never got a loan from them, and most banks reduced their credit. But as God would have it, I was introduced to the private loan lender JULIA NAVARO CEO NAVARO LOAN COMPANY and I got the loan amount ($553,760 USD), and today I am a business owner, and the kids are doing well at the moment. So, my dear friends, if you need to contact referring to all the companies that provide the loan at low interest rate of 2% and better repayment plans and schedules, please contact (JULIA NAVARO) at Navaroloancompany@yahoo.com. I'm so happy now, and I decided to let people know more about it, she offers all kinds of loans to individuals and company, and I want God to bless her. You can contact the company via e-mail (Navaroloancompany@yahoo.com)....

Nowhere in the story does it say that he wasn't growing on park land or other people's land.

Re: “Too Big to Fail

Marijuana consumers deserve and demand equal rights and protections under our laws that are currently afforded to the drinkers of far more dangerous and deadly, yet perfectly legal, widely accepted, endlessly advertised and even glorified as an All American pastime, booze.

Plain and simple!

Legalize Marijuana Nationwide!

The "War on Marijuana" has been a complete and utter failure. It is the largest component of the broader yet equally unsuccessful "War on Drugs" that has cost our country over a trillion dollars.

Instead of The United States wasting Billions upon Billions more of our tax dollars fighting a never ending "War on Marijuana", lets generate Billions of dollars, and improve the deficit instead. It's a no brainer.

The Prohibition of Marijuana has also ruined the lives of many of our loved ones. In numbers greater than any other nation, our loved ones are being sent to jail and are being given permanent criminal records which ruin their chances of employment for the rest of their lives, and for what reason?

Marijuana is much safer to consume than alcohol. Yet do we lock people up for choosing to drink?

The government should never attempt to legislate morality by creating victim-less marijuana "crimes" because it simply does not work and costs the taxpayers a fortune.

Marijuana Legalization Nationwide is an inevitable reality that's approaching much sooner than prohibitionists think and there is nothing they can do to stop it!

Legalize Nationwide! Support Each and Every Marijuana Legalization Initiative!
