    What has happened with the CHP officer who finished is pizza rather than respond to the call. Has he been disciplined?

    Three years, and only one felony count?? Someone will prey on him in prison. Hope he gets treated exactly as he has treated those 2 gentlemen.

    What was the point of mentioning the name of his mother and the business she owns?

    Is that a back handed way of implying she raised her child poorly or that she is some how responsible for his acts of violence.

    Bad form Towncrier.
