How does this make any sense at all?"Since 2008, there have been 14 pedestrian-related accidents at that intersection, 10 of which involved people turning onto Carrillo during a red light and typically occurring when people were walking across Carrillo."
If the light is red, they have no business walking across Carrillo.
So, basically, the reasoning is we should impede normally legal traffic flow so people can be safe while illegally ignoring a red light to cross the street?

Yeah, because "18 grams of heroin, a scale, and packing materials." seems like personal stash to you?

...and why was the article about the man that the SBPD actually beat to death (he later died at the jail) set up to have no comments/discussion?

WTF?"Aggressive Panhandling"?Wielding a weapon and demanding "Give me your F***ing money" Sounds like Armed Robbery to me.
Why such a ridiculously lesser charge? If he were not "homeless", would he have been properly charged?
Next, we'll hear of a homeless guy that robs a bank at gunpoint being charged with an "unauthorized overdraft"
Maybe the cops are too busy beating up (and sometimes killing) other citizens over seemingly lesser crimes?

what we were told when voting on the lottery was that all of the revenue would go to the schools - in addition to what was already funded by the State general fund already earmarked for the schools.
What ended up happening is all the lottery money was put into the general fund and the schools ended up net zero for an increase in funding.
This is what happens with most of these "save the schools" propositions, it is all a shell game - and Jerry is the king of that game.

2 AA meetings a week for only 30 days? What happened to the mandatory Alcohol Education program for 12 months, as well as mandatory AA meetings? This ruling is disgraceful and the judge should be held accountable, as well as Falcone - who, yes, obviously has a serious drinking problem.

Ever been driving down the road, minding all the laws, licensed and insured as well... and been run into by an unlicensed, uninsured, illegal immigrant, completely totaling your car and causing major medical expenditures or death of a loved one?
Well, until you have experienced, or at least fully understand, that scenario... you completely miss the reason for this whole thing.
Not only should the vehicle be impounded, the ILLEGAL ALIEN should be deported. No and's/or's/if's/ or but's about it.
All this "feel good" "politically correct" "sensitivity" nonsense has gone so far over the threshold of common sense, it is insane.
The "racist" subterfuge is a complete lie. The fact is, the unlicensed, uninsured, & illegal drivers pose a very real and serious threat to the safety and well being of the rest of us. Just because people that are already illegally in this country are also a majority of that aforementioned group does not somehow make upholding the law and protecting those of us that do abide by the law somehow "racist". That's ridiculous.

It's not Rocket Science to determine that the self proclaimed "Angel of Death" had intent. Obviously, you're not too familiar with this case from the beginning. His actions clearly showed intent, as did his story.

Hopped up on meth or not, the dead guy clearly broke the law, ran the stop and was killed in the accident. That alone makes the accident 100% his own fault.
To say that the other party is in any way at fault, should be "locked up", or in any way be punished for the accident is delusional at best. Seriously, would you be saying that if it was your own mother, your sister, or even you that was in her place? No, you would not... but since her name is Maldonado... oh yeah, she just must be punished huh? That's just lame.

It is not the function of the ABR to make any decisions for reasons other than visual aesthetics / design / function of a project. No personal or political beliefs of the owner of the project can have any bearing on the decision.
The valid grounds for recusal are simple : an actual existing relationship with the applicant & board member. Not a "feeling, judgement, political difference, or belief" about the applicant, but a real bonified relationship of some kind that would present a conflict.
Abstaining for pure political posturing / pandering is not an acceptable option either.
