Wow! I don't panhandle and I use deodorant. Not sure what seediness means. But I do ride the buses and so do many of my friends.

I absolutely am saying that I would have been ticketed if I had been Black, regardless of age. As an educated woman and the parent of 4 black children, I know that they are treated differently for the same offenses. I am certainly not condoning this man attacking the police officer, but I can say almost without a doubt that if a white man did the same thing, he would not have been shot.

I was stopped for a seat belt violation. The officer was very respectful and gave me a warning, rather than a ticket. Of course, I'm a 68 year old white woman.

Proposition 1 was not offering a solution to jail overcrowding. It was simply proposing to enlarge a facility in order to fill it and have it be overcrowded again in 2-3 years. A true solution is an examination of the justice system.

My guess is they are not going to find the witnesses for a variety of reasons unless they happen to come in contact with law enforcement. I understand why the prosecution wants them to testify, but if they have transcripts, I think they should move forward.

The public has been trying to tell them since Day 1 that the 2 issues should not be on the same ballot and they would NOT listen. Hopefully they will listen now!
