If this had been an ordinary citizen, and not a County Supervisor.....do you think there would have been a field sobriety test! Do you think the prowler/screen intruder would not be in jail right now! Of course. Looks like its just the good ol' boys club once again covering each others asses. Shame on all of you and the jurors too. This gives license to anyone now to do the same and expect that it is not a punishable crime. Lesson learned...
He is setting a tumultuous example of bad behavior to the community he represents! This is not high school! Grow up!
Thank you for saying I was eloquent, but as I recall I suggested that he deserved to have his day in court, which now he has.
How about "I forgot where I left them."
Never worked for me either.
Call it "The Santa Rosa Winds"?
Thank you for stating in unmistakably clear language that which needs to be said about this misogynistic, egotistical, arrogant, self-centered excuse of a man. The fact is that any mere mortal among us would have been slapped with multiple and varied charges for committing such heinous acts against not one but THREE innocent women in their apartment. But not only does he walk away with a not guilty verdict for the most minimalistic charge which was brought - the laughable crime of "attempting peeking" - but he STILL has the support of some misguided elected officials and respect of some supposed community leaders. This is, indeed, a sad commentary on the shortcomings of not only our criminal justice system, but also underscores the callous and brazen disregard that some people have exhibited for a woman's right to feel safe in her own home.
Please sign and share the following petition, being sent to Carrillo and copied to the Board Of Supervisors – Carrillo needs to resign:
I want to hear more about what a crook Mary Hayashi is.
Read today's story in the Chronicle. So ridiculous that someone as corrupt as Mary Hayashi thinks she even has the grounds to run for public office.
The "Mug Shot Mary" website makes it pretty clear: http://www.mugshotmary.com/infographic.html
Efren Carrillo must resign – please sign and circulate the petition, being sent to Carrillo and the Board of Supervisors:
What is hysterical about Keith (other than thinking he actually has a chance in politics) is that I was recently informed that he actually helped author the petition asking for Carrillo's resignation, signed it, and asked others to do the same. He made a "decision" then but now that he is running for office, he has a new opinion it seems. I suspect since he has zero support among progressives that he is now simply angling for the anti-Fudge vote (which includes some Carrillo backers). No worries, Keith has zero chance of winning and Carrillo's political future is over.
And now for a little humor on the subject. Have you heard that John Beck from the PD wrote a song about the case called A Couple of Pliny's (The Ballad of Efren Carrillo)? You can hear it online here:
And the lyrics:
I gotta couple of Plinys
and you on my mind
I'm here in my undies
let's have a good time
so come to you window
I can't see through your blinds
I mighta put my hand through your screen
but is it a crime?
I saw you down at Space 25
I didn't want the night to end
You looked like you wanted some
and so did your friends
So put away your butcher knives
You can see I'm not armed
just a couple of Plinys
I mean you no harm
Remember me I'm your neighbor
I brought you that wine
oh wait are those sirens?
I'm gonna do time
But thanks to that jury
I'm gonna get another chance
Looking back in restrospect
I shoulda worn pants
District 5 Sonoma County Supervisor
campaign headquarters down at the Russian River Brewing Company Santa Rosa
I dug open tunnels in 3 places, tossed in used cat litter. Gophers gone. Maybe over at my neighbors.
The funding for the Sonoma County Grand Jury won't pay for cab fare.
The Grand Jury members each require payment of equal fees of a State Superior Court Judge.
They have the only flow into the legal system for the citizen.
This is a disgrace..
Beautiful small craft..
Juror 1679, note after lunch to judge said something like, upon further reflection during lunch, would it be possible to resume deliberations, even though the verdict form(s?) has already been completed, (and signed?) We know which juror that was, one of the 10 women
Nicolas, this post appears to need a bit more proof reading, you must have been dazed by your experience in the courtroom today! I do thank you for your recap and timely tweets to keep us all up to date on the daily adventures of our virtuous and so very humble supervisor.
What a scumbag. He should be in jail for attempted rape. No justice
Sonoma County Is Corrupt. If Erick Gelhaus And Carrilo Will Walk. 1 for mudering andy lopes the other becaause he is into politics
Thanks for this thoughtful and even-handed article. Healing the community will be a challenge, but it can be done. In West Marin, there is widespread and deep interest in conflict resolution.
I have a small quibble with your article: Many of those who support DBOC do NOT put sustainable ag above environmental protection. Indeed, DBOC's proponents include folks who in the past fervently supported EAC and other environmental organizations. Others, like myself, aren't into oysters or high-toned food preparation. If you talked with the hundreds of people who prefer that DBOC would continue, you would hear a variety of reasons. No need rehashing all that now. But I didn't want your readers to think that the fight is between pro-environmentalists on one side and foodies and right-wingers on the other. That characterization doesn't come close to defining the complex issues that have torn apart our community.
I agree that the old should be replaced. New technology is always better then old and lately the reliability is much better too. The manually way is no longer best.
