Interesting that original stories had Bell from OAKLAND but now Berserkley. Hope the boys in prison have fun with this POS. More of these stories to come with the city council voting to allow low low low low stack and pack housing in our fair town. People like Bell (who's my daddy) get off on preying on others.

Well, no racism there, eh? </sarcasm>

Where were you folks when the white NRA member from Alamo shot the Alamo jeweler? Dead silence, as I recall.

If Francis Di Cari is a real person, I assume that he has an enemy who used his name for the above post. Nobody would sigh such a disgusting message with his actual name, right?

Anyways, back to the real issue. This is sad & neighbors of the Fuch's family send our support during this difficult time. I drive by the Fuch's house everyday & think about how much this family has had to endure. Stay strong.

Steve--you are the bigot. Francis has EvErY right to post his opinions. What a liberal thought controlling piece of Pac work u r...YOU are the arrogant one......I enjoy other views rather than the innocuous garbage from the thought police like you.

Yeah, Steve -- if ol' Francis wants to self-identify as a rancid side-of-bacon, I consider it an opportunity for sane folks to steer clear of his fetid wallow. After all, many people who harbor such despicable sentiments choose to hide behind their bed sheets.

So brav-O, ya Porker!

Racism is so 1950's. Move it along people. Let's send our good thoughts to this family & stay on topic. Keep your dirty ugly ideas to yourself, there is enough pain in this world without some small town racism festering.

Sorry folks but I agree with Francis. The murderer was attending our schools (can only I aging his behavior) on a transfer by the courts. There are garbage people......face the facts. He and his buddies, one dead in another shooting (ho hum-no loss) were here to cause havoc. Enjoy prison, tough guy----good riddance.

Hey Steve---last I checked, people don't have to agree with you. So shut up.

It is a tragedy that a 17 year old was killed. To place the entire blame on "thugs" from other areas is a bit short sighted as the other person in this drug deal was the 17 year old who climbed out his bedroom window with the intent to participate in a drug deal. To point the blame on a single person is wrong, it is more in line with reality to state we have a problem with drugs that has permeated all of our society.
