Selene you are a racist pig. Always bringing race into it. This man was a descent man who spent his life helping people, how dare you. She had a lot of previous offenses and 40 years is not enough. She did murder someone.

Cali, you poor thing, this is not about race it is about human life. How is one white male murder worth more in a court of law than 2 young mexican boys? WHO is the racist? You imply a white male's murder is worth 40 years in prison yet two young mexican boys lives are only worth 10 years in prison? Get it? Think before you rant, DA.

Wow time to come to terms with reality! You think race is not an issue? Two dead kids??? What if they went to Par High and their parents were on the PTA and the boys played baseball and football for the town? Pull your head out of your southern most orifice. THINK before you say anything MORE stupid.

She deserves everything she gets, drugs, alcohol, and previous offenses? Keep this low life off our streets, before she hurts someone else.
