On Cat Cora Takes Plea Deal in DUI Case

BFD. I think that without experiencing the adrenaline overdose and shear sense of relief at surviving the firefight, none of us can understand this rather harmless gesture.
Now we have people judging 20 year-old Marines, who've just made it through another life-or-death struggle, knowing full well they may be killed in the next one, giving vent to emotions they can hardly contain?
Give these guys a break.

For Hank: A Cuban emigre, on requesting entry to the U.S., is asked to use the colors Green, Pink, and Yellow in a sentence. After some thought, he replies: "The phone Green, so I Pink it up and say 'Yellow?'"
White people live to work. Latinos work to live. That is a Latino saying. If you grow up in a Latino family and own a body shop, you are macho. Your white friend, who may be a physicist, is a celebrity when you bring him around. If you, as a Latino, study physics, you're a freak.
The Latino people have the same sense of "place" that lower class whites had for centuries. It takes time to change, but it's happening.

Greg Mohr, you are a little off here. Armandirez is a criminally negligent drunk driver, and hence a public menace.
Switching price tags? Really? That's like excusing your child for being a serial rapist, since the neighbor's kid looked at Hustler magazine.
The fact is, right-wing nut-jobs more often bash gays while they live in the closet, bash marijuana while they drive drunk, condemn marital infidelity while they have affairs, and take bribes while they preach fiscal responsibility. What are we supposed to think?

Lyons will be out on appeal within two years. This was a sloppily investigated murder, an incompetent prosecution, and an unjustified conviction based on the evidence. Whether Corey Lyons did the deed or not, no one will ever know, not even the know-it-alls who post idiotic congratulations to this exceptionally untalented DA's office.
The case did reveal a motive: Dan and his partner were out to destroy Corey Lyons so they could essentially get the house he built them for free. Sharton came up with the real dagger - the worker's comp issue, which really cost her and Dan nothing. I say all this to point out the caliber and brute meanness of the two victims.
Now factor in the profession of Dan Lyons - Fresno attorney. Fresno is a city with a vast underbelly. How many and what type of enemies could people like Dan and his partner have made practicing law in Fresno? Certainly the type that could pull this off.

Well, they forget them. It's even worse when your dog rolls in human feces, thinking it's a scent camouflage. People who crap and leave it out for anybody or their dog to find - those are really disgusting people.

Speaking of "buzz words" how about "new-speak" and "politically correct?" Based on the recent elections, what do YOU think "politically correct" speech sounds like?
When Republicans want to re-define rape so that lack of consent is no longer the test, yes, they are attacking all women. The rest of their agenda, as it affects Planned Parenthood, women's health insurance policies, and reproductive rights in general, is based on a desire to control and subjugate women.
When somebody tries to control and subjugate you, you will sense (correctly) that you are being attacked.

What's interesting to me is not the Lance DUI (boring) as much as the recent protocols for hiring cops. The background investigation for Sheriff's Department or SBPD, even for clerical jobs, is more thorough than for a secret government clearance. The SBPD knew what Beutel had done before they hired her, and they hired her anyway.
Are they desperate for people? Well, maybe not so much as they are in love with hiring penitents. Take a sinner, give them absolution, and Voila! you have a fanatic.
The Sheriff's Department regularly rejects applicants with histories of drug abuse, DUI, and other sins, only to accept them if they come back and apply again. This apparently shows that they have mended their ways and are ready to be absolved by the clergy and accepted into the fold.
