    • We need more and better security cameras on streets and especially on our freeways. They should be placed in such a position where they could capture better images. I’d also like drones to be deployed 24/7 over those roads.

  1. A woman was killed while driving on I- 4 last week and another person was wounded by someone on I-580 on Sunday afternoon. Someone is out there shooting motorists at random. I’ve seldom seen any CHP around the areas mentioned. Whatever happened to the cameras which were supposed be lining up the freeways?

    • According to authorities, the shooting on 4 near Willow Pass was a gang related dispute, and the 580 shooting was road rage. The 580 victim survived, so she knows the circumstances. Nobody is shooting at random.

      Freeway shootings are gang related or road rage. Unless there is a confirmed sniper in town (DC sniper) who shoots multiple victims in the same area.

      • Wrong! Most of those shootings were random shootings! Sorry to surprise you! Nonetheless, even if the shooter had a beef with the motorist, he still put a lot of people in danger and shooters like that should be permanently removed from our society.

    • Its sad that people read their names that have a Latino background and automatically think build a wall. They are citizens and have rights. Our legal system is so corrupt, the coco county DA was laundering money but no one is investigating that, or what about Trumps Good Friend Jeffrey Epstein, look him up, it may open your eyes. I hope these boys keep a positive mindset. People(white, privilege) rather support Trump That has been attending these SEX parties that Epstein had children providing certain favors since the 1990s(documentation),but hevan forbid an immigrant from Mexico and South America Come and excel at a job white people never consider because they are better than that. you white racist people have no problem with immigrants from China, Indonesia, and India coming to take the tech jobs in the Bay Area.

        • I think you need to reevaluate your statement. The United States actually had/have work programs for agriculture farms. LETS REMIND EVERY ONE OF YOU OLD WHITE PEOPLE THAT WE LIVE IN MODERN DAY CALIFORNIA, BUT WAS IN FACT MEXICO. once again it goes back to the White ancestors, taking our native land, raping our beautiful women, but where(Latinos, Blacks) the problem because we fight back, and call people out. These are Young men in there early 20s, what if it was your grandson or the church choir boy. you would change you opinion. if you hunt for sport/fun then your a poor excuse of a human, you kill animals not because its your only way to eat and survive. but because you want to out shoot you drinking buddies.

          • For starters, I am not OLD nor WHITE and you are not NATIVE to this continent. The CLOVIS people were here first and you invaded them and killed them off. Second, you probably never heard of the Mexican/American War of 1848 where, with the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, we got California and you lost it. This is NOT Mexico, amigo!
            This is OUR land now and you’re trespassing. No one is raping your women because they are TOO BLOODY FUGLY!

          • We are not all OLD WHITE people! Where did you come up with that one? I was born in 1990 and I totally agree with Lola and Global Man and I seriously doubt that they are OLD!

          • I’m at the age where I don’t have a husband or children yet and, therefore, no grandchildren! But if I did and they committed such crimes, I would be the FIRST one to turn them in — church choir boy included.

            You might be happier in Mexico! A great country with some awesome resources and a good new president, AMLO!

      • Trump never attended any sex parties on Epstein’s orgy island. It was your Bill Clinton who has been flown there at least 40 times for “entertainment.” Hillary has also joined him at times. There are photos of both of them posted on YouTube.

      • Hey, Concern With Racists! I bet you’re jealous as all hell! Probably because if he did attend sex parties, Trump did not invite you to join in! You’d be gloating if he had! Tough luck, buddy!

    • President Trump will be in southern California on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday to examine the prototypes on display at the CA/MEX border. Most are the kind which cannot be scaled by the invaders nor can they dig underneath it.

  2. I like immigrants from DENMARK, SWEDEN, NORWAY, FINLAND, FRANCE, GERMANY and the UK. They don’t go around shooting people… and their food is fantastic! Actually, my husband and I have sponsored over 50 people from those countries and will sponsor more.

    • Since everyone is judging, ima make the assumption , you are white-and only associate yourself with other white people, since you want to only sponsor people from predominately Northern regions of Europe. Try sponsoring someone from Vietnam, Malaysia, or Africa. If you stay in your box , you will only grow as big as your box!

      • I too have sponsored a lot of people from northern Europe. Lots from Ireland and Wales as well as Austria and European RUSSIA. The Russians are Evangelicals with at least 12 children! All blond and blue-eyed! I also sponsored highly educated people with advanced degrees from the top European universities. I don’t sponsor anyone from Vietnam or Indonesia or Africa, unless they are farmers from South Africa who have been threatened with death. All have GREEN CARDS and are working. None of them would dream of going on welfare!

      • I have also sponsored people from Europe, mostly from The Netherlands and Norway. They are sick and tired of the immigration policies their socialist governments have in place and their tax structure. Same goes for the Brits! I like staying in MY box and I’m growing there nicely, thank you!

      • Why should anyone sponsor people from Vietnam, Malaysia and Africa? That was not the intention of our Founding Fathers. Read some of their correspondence. It’s easily accessible.

        • Elizabeth, I do sponsor white farmers from South Africa whose lives have been threatened and farmlands confiscated. South Africa used to produce so much food that it fed a good portion of Europe and Asia. The Dutch (Afrikaans) farmers were there for centuries producing an incredibly large yield of produce and dairy products.

  3. Why only 12 and 13 years for putting people’s lives in mortal danger? What happened to 30 and 40 year sentences or life sentences with NO PAROLE! As far as sending a message to “CONCERN” above, he or she should know that I am not OLD, at least not yet!

    • Yes, Tammy! I don’t think a 13 and 14 year sentence is enough! We simply must have cameras all over our highways and freeways placed in such an area where the vehicle and it’s inhabitants can clearly be seen. We also need far more CHP and police patrols, especially in areas where these shootings have occurred.

  4. This entire comment chain just turned into racist rants from both sides.

    Everybody involved should be ashamed of themselves.
