Mark Gonzalez of Danville, What a maroon!

Mark Gonzalez, there are people far worse off than you and you pull this kind of crap.

Mark Gonzalez steals food from Denny's?

Mark Gonzalez, every time I type the name Mark Gonzalez, you're added to search engines for Mark Gonzalez.

Mr. Mark Gonzalez, you are an idiot.

Great post, Hollywood Dad!

Yes, Mark Gonzalez of Danville, CA - whether it's a potential employer, a future romantic interest, or an illegitimate child you've spawned - the next time someone "Google's" your name, I hope they find this article and come to realize that you are, in fact, a complete idiot.

Mark Gonzalez of Danville, CA, you are a danger to the community.

Mark Gonzalez, I am posting this comment so that any local business professional in the real estate, insurance, finance, travel, industrial, or consumer industry from the Danville / San Ramon / Contra Costa County area will discover how pathetic you are.

Mark Gonzalez, it's time to dry out, pack up and move on.

Hello...I was reading all the comments with regards to Mark Gonzalez..and then I happened to read his response and I was floored. Instead of being sorry for what he did, he was defiant..He just didn't get it..what an immature jerk! Happy he's not part of my family and my circle of friends!

Who is this guy?

While I don't want to over-estimate this guy (based on what we already know of him), I would note that the spelling of "GonzaleZ" in the news report does not match the GonzaleS, above.

I'm guessing that the "real" defendant in this matter knows how to spell his name and can do so consistently. He must surely also realize that a comment like the one above would be seen and likely read back to him at sentencing, ensuring that he will do his future dashing on-foot.

So, I conclude that whoever wrote the idiocy above: 1 -- is dumber than dog dirt, and 2 -- is not the "real" Mark Gonzalez in Q.
