    Elan Firpo is only for wins...not justice or victim's rights. THAT is the real reason these three got off the way they did. Not voting for her, and hopefully the new DA will shitcan the stupid bitch on day one!

    Firpo, if you read these comments..... Move out of Humboldt no one wants you here, you failed the community and ruined whatever reputation you had. You are scum in the eyes of this county, you should move to Berkley where you belong.

  5. Might wanna ask Norcal Jim if he is biased because of his wife's case?

    Same with other comments. You clearly have personal grudges of some sort.

  6. So, Frumboldt - and Anonymous. I take you are EQUALLY as firm in condemning Paul Gallegos, because under his rule, this occurred. Surely, as ACTING DA, elected yea these many times, he signs off on a decision such as this. Under his rule, Warren was let out to kill 2 people.

    And yet, silence.

    Then you attack this woman. Not just CRITICIZE or question, but go right to the "BITCH!" comments. Even in all my criticism of Gallegos, with all his failings, bad decisions and mismanagement, have I EVER acted like that.

    Blame her, but never him? Is that it?

    Yet this is his job. The buck stops with him.

    What's the deal?

  7. He is not up for election. His reign is over. I did not make the comment someone else did, I simply posted a general feeling about her county wide. All seems really self explanatory. Your hate for Gallego's is clouding your judgment.

  8. Oh, knock it off with the 'he is not running' - no one is happier about that than I am.

    It's not about whether he is up for election. He announced he is not running, he did not resign. He IS still the DA - it IS still his responsibility.

    And yet you still give him a pass. Are you going to do that for the rest of the year?

    Or do you, at some point, admit that he has a job to do, and he ought to do it - and hold him accountable for the decisions that come out of HIS office - the one he 'WON!!'

    Either he signed off on this agreement - or he is getting paid $150 grand to play tiddlywinks.


Comments are open, but moderated, for the time-being. Good luck.
