There are too many convicted felons and repeat offenders out on parole or in ineffective diversion programs.

It is time to get tougher on violent felons as rehabilitation is nearly impossible.

So, Kalelle Dawson was already a convicted felon at the time of his arrest. My, my, no surprise there. Mr. Dawson will receive a lengthy prison sentence for armed robbery with a prior felony conviction of a firearm. Oh, how sweet it is!

The pendulum is beginning to turn back in favor of the law folks. More needs to be done of course, but at least thug life understands that there are consequences for their actions.

Nice job Paul on the description of thug life.

All too frequently, "the media" fails to include these "descriptions," and mugshots. I understand the law as regards juveniles, but this guy is 40 years old. I just think that the public deserves to get "a complete picture" where criminal activity is concerned. It gives the average citizen valuable information and improves their "situational awareness" if you get my meaning.

Wouldn't pictures (i.e. a booking shot) also be informative?

There are many shades of skin tones and variances in facial features.

If the 'thugs' were from more affluent communities, perhaps they would have chosen other more productive outlets like academics and sports.

Maybe the more upscale and predominantly white Contra Costa County cities need to consider creating an outreach program where upper middle class families rescue troybled kids from impoverished neighborhoods in a concerted effort to steer them in the proper direction.

This would also involve instilling real values by downplaying the allure of shallow material consumer goods like BMWs and Rolexes.

But thugs do not generally come from more affluent communities, do they? So, what’s your point? The fact is, you want someone else to take the reigns and steer at risk youth in a better direction. In other words, the affluent community should carry the burden?

It all starts at home Gina. You can’t blame affluent communities, or their desire to wear Rolexes and drive BMW’s if they so chose. Instead, you take the onus off the criminal and make it sound like it’s the fault of the very community thug life wishes to harm.

There are plenty of young people that come from bad neighborhoods who don’t commit crime. The certain few that do, are simply criminals. Can some of those kids be helped, sure. But it’s not up to the “affluent community” to play the role of mom and dad.

Spot on Malcolm,

Gina places the "blame" for the crimes we are seeing on "the affluence of the victims." Give me a break! For too many today, another "government program," is always the "solution." It's like treating an illness, rather than "preventive care." Passing out "clean needles," rather than arresting and jailing all who violate our drug laws. Just take a short walk down Mission St. in San Francisco, near Moscone Center, if you dare! You end up wondering just how bad crime has to get, before the "Ginas" start voting for law enforcement to be allowed to do their jobs.
