I agree with Rick...

What the hell is going on with our law enforcement folks?. Other than the fact that they are human and some human's will take advantage of any weak link in our system to gain riches and power.

Look towards Washington D.C. and in fact you don't need to look that far to see scandals in our local governments.

It's a real mess and the worst thing about it is that a lot of folks that didn't mistrust the police are starting to move in that direction.

It's bad enough that our police have a dangerous job especially around the greater bay area, now the good folks of our communities are beginning to with some justification mistrust them.

Thanks for listening...Julia from Alamo

All my friends in The City are now envious about the exciting life we lead out in these here 'burbs. I had no idea how edgy we are!

On another note, I wonder how many showers Mr. Gagen, Esq. has to take in an average day?

Too much action going on here to be so invisible. How high up does this go?

I find it fascinating that the Lawyer office of the Gagen group is within a stone's throw of THE VINE. The Vine is where some of the people where liquored up by PRO's and then arrested for DUI. All related to Butler the PI who Gagen represents. Would the Town fathers have allowed the small green park there become THE VINE ????? If they knew now the element that would come to town. Now the story of the brothel (Massage Parlor) in Pleasant Hill gets thrown into the DRUGS, weapons, DIRTY police mix.

May as well move to Auburn or Grass valley when the BIG city problems arrive.
