Stone opposes and will work to repeal ObamaCare, according to his web siteRead More http://www.jeffstone2014.com/issues/. If Stone believes in the free market and that government should stay out of health care, why does the County not walk the talk and get out of the health care business?

The County just borrowed $2 million from the Worker's Compensation Fund for sewers in wine country -- a project that is only half funded -- but the local press doesn't find that story newsworthy.

Hey Amy RLB, whatever that means, why are you talking about all .. what did you call them.....Read More libiots..... when there is only one person in this entire discussion that called anybody a woman hater?

@Charles Taite - As one of the commentators responding to and to whom Black Panther of PoetryRead More responded I happen to agree with you. I don't know whether Patch removed him or whether he did so himself. I for one did not flag any of his comments as offensive regardless of my personal dislike of some of the comments he made. If Patch did so shame on Patch. P.S. As much as I have issues with what he wrote he is no where close to the KKK for bigotry or racist beliefs or talk but your point is well taken.

I say dual endorsement is a good idea where both candidates appear to be well qualified.

I dislike it when DISTRICT ATTORNEY CANDIDATES MAKE PUFFY CLAIMS "VOTE FOR ME. I AMRead More HARSH", "I WILL TAKE ALL THESE DANGEROUS AND VIOLENT CRIMINALS OFF THE STREET AND KEEP THE PUBLIC SAFE." That is paraphrasing the DA in a nearby county at a press conference announcing the arrests of raids where some respectable medical marijuana patients had delivered SMALL LEGAL QUANTITIES OF MEDICAL MARIJUANA ONLY TO OTHER PATIENTS AND ONLY AFTER PERSONALLY VERIFYING THEIR ID AND THEIR CURRENT DOCTOR RECOMMENDATIONS ACCORDING TO STATE LAW.

County Supervisor's Jumping on the Band Wagon... Let the record reflect that I was the firstRead More civilian to endorse Mike Hestrin Publicly in Riverside County...I am Kind of proud of that! A few weeks later Zellerbach showed his appreciation and I was charged with multiple felonies he created literally out of thin air. It took a few months for my case to wind it's way through the court system. In the end, THREE separate judges ruled "NO CRIME WAS COMMITTED! ALL charges have been dismissed. I as Chairman of The Riverside County Leadership Forum, Zellerbach must have felt that my support for Mike Hestrin, his opponent might perhaps be the beginning of his undoing. When I sent out a memo to campaign donors that I was going to be supporting Mike Hestrin and that I suggested they wait to start writing checks to Zellerbach's campaign until they were able to meet Mike and get a better understanding of him, that they might also decide he was the better of the two candidates. A few days after that email went out, Zellerbach was forced to cancel a fundraiser due to lack of interest. Less than a week later, I received a letter from the DA telling me to turn myself in to the court and answer to Felony Death Threats and Stalking charges, ALL of my firearms have been confiscated by Zellerbachs orders and I am still to this day left defenseless in my very own home because of Paul Zellerbachs abuse of his authority. I will expand on this in our next newsletter that will be hitting email inboxes across Riverside County in a few day's Learn more about The Riverside County Leadership Forum here: http://www.riversideforum.org/

@Concerned Person -- Police work consists of two speeds, slow and terrifying.Read More ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- When time is on the cops side, they may have the luxury of falling back, developing tactics, deploying SWAT or specially trained crisis negotiators. Unfortunately, the suspect almost always drives the pace of events. And, I would surmise from the information provided, that the conditions at the scene unfolded very rapidly, giving little chance for officers to negotiate with this person. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- It's a tragedy, but this guy had already chosen his path long before the cops ever arrived. Even if the officers had known in advance that he intended to draw fire upon himself, there wouldn't have been any change in the outcome. The victim forced the officers to take the action that they did. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- You need to accept that these are the FACTS and there are going to be certain circumstances that are simply beyond the control of anyone. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- No amount of additional police training could have altered the situation. Society is filled with the mentally ill and cops engage them practically on a daily basis. Unfortunately, some will cross the line and threaten the safety of others. On those occasions they will often die. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- You should also check your facts about the level of special training that officers receive for dealing with the mentally ill. The California DOJ sets training standards for all police in the state. Most officers receive up to 80 hours of training in the academy, and an additional 120 hours of active training in dealing with the mentally ill.
