It's a sad situation for sure.

"Kelly said...." Who is Kelly? That person is never identified in this article. Yet, that person is quoted quite a bit.

Whenever I read the Express, and other reports, I often wonder if the "reporters" have had any training in journalism. Perhaps this isn't meant to be journalism and I ask too much? That they aren't journalists at all but kids writing an essay, or maybe just copying from other publications written by equally untrained kids?

I don't say this to be mean. The state of journalism is sinking, losing all standards. We should try to save it.

Thank you for pointing out the typo in an earlier version of this story, Ms. Bunny. The article has been updated to include Alameda County sheriff's Sgt. Ray Kelly's full name.

I agree with the comment regarding journalistic quality nowadays, but if you read it carefully, the article does state who "Kelly" is - Ray Kelly, an Alameda County Sheriff's sergeant.

It angers me to see this article putting the family of the ("allegedly") drunk wife of a deputy on par with the grieving family of the innocent victims of this horrible tragedy. I certainly hope that none of our tax dollars are being spent for those who are unfortunately related to the irresponsible killer. I encourage all to donate t help the victims, and anyone who knows them to be there to help them through this horrible circumstance in any way possible.

All I can say is Really? " The deputy's family has the support counseling and peer support When all that is given the child's family is "their thoughts" Really?

The drunk driver was also in a DUI three weeks ago with her own child. This is reprehensible.

"Kelly said sheriff's officials are making sure the deputy's family has the support they need such as counseling and peer support..."

[removed] She's a murderer. Uber, cabs, family, excuse to get behind the wheel drunk. She's a killer of a small child. Period. Her family and 'peers' can deal with that on their own and without any sympathy from the public.

Support this family. They will need it to even go on with life.
